About Dar al-Turath
Dar al-Turath al-Islami (DTI) means the Home of Islamic Heritage; dar is ‘home’ and turath is ‘heritage’. Through a range of activities, such as memorising the Qur’an and learning the shari’ah from classical Arabic texts, the dar seeks to open the door for students to our rich Islamic heritage and its scholars.

Welcome

“Ahlan wa sahlan wa marhaban to you. We extend a warm welcome to all who want to embark on the noble journey of seeking sacred knowledge. You will find DTI a place that nurtures and guides you along this journey, and opens your heart and soul to the peace that comes from the establishment of sacred knowledge within you”

About DTI

Programmes to fit your schedule

We offer students the opportunity to study full-time if they are able. And for those whose commitments make full-time study impossible, we run classes in the evenings and over weekends too.

Preparing you for your learning Journey

We realise that most students will be beginners in Arabic, so we start our shari’ah programme with a year’s Arabic Intensive, in which we use a tried-and-tested curriculum that has equipped many students to understand Arabic within a year.

English or Arabic Programmes

Our shari’ah programme is unique in that it draws only on Arabic texts, and scholars teaching in Arabic and English. However, for those who aren’t keen to study in Arabic, we offer the programme in English over weekends.
