Alhamdulillah! I am grateful and honored to be a student of Maryam Institute! The institute is professional and organized. The system works well, everything is accessible to the student, TA’s are very helpful and they respond promptly! What I am very impressed with, is that Alimah Sobia is approachable, contactable and open to suggestions. There are many lessons that a student receives, from Aalimah, besides the actual lessons, which in itself, makes this course beneficial, worthwhile and priceless! Should a student gain nothing else, besides these lessons, it would suffice.
I am in awe of the fact that these lessons are free of charge, yet the effort, dedication and sacrifice afforded, stands uncompromised! I am touched and most humbled by the time and dedication, that Aalimah dedicates to the beautiful deen of Islam.
Fundamentals Program Student from the United States:
I am so blessed to find out about Maryam Institute. I have learned a lot over the last few months, probably more than what I have learned in forty years of my life. It is great to have a young teacher who understands the daily challenges we face living in a western society. My 13 year old daughter also listens to the recordings and it is amazing how sister Sobia is able to affect her heart as much as she has affected mine. May Allah bless her. My daughter even said she wants to now become an Alimah.
Advanced Program Student from Morocco:
Tafsir Class is truly like a niche illuminating the lives of the students. No matter how much I try to express, words can never truly convey the reality of these lovely classes and the impact they have had on my life, alhamdulillah. Arabic Classes improved my Arabic skills substantially. I am able to better apprehend the Quran al Karim while reciting alhamdulillah. Furthermore, I was able to write an email in Arabic for the first time yesterday, read messages, duaas and watch bayans in Arabic alhamdulillah. The pace is perfect, I am always looking forward to learning more about Allah ta’ala’s beautiful language.
Short Course Student from New York, USA:
Subhan Allah, where could I begin? The connection is great. Very good sound and really amazing interaction between the Alimah and students. It makes me feel like the Alimah really is involved with us, she cares about us and it feels like we’re always in her thoughts. The Alimah is so kind and generous. Her method of teaching has drawn me to seek more courses inshaAllah.
Quran Program Student from Karachi, Pakistan:
I think Ustadha Sobia is just doing her job in the most perfect way humanly possible. Never have I had a teacher even while studying in university who is always available to answer all questions and cover so much detail in her lectures. I feel that we are able to relate the verses of Qur’an in our daily lives. Just a few months of studying has enabled me to dig deeper into the meanings of the verses while reciting the Qur’an. This is all because of Allah’s blessings and Ustadha’s efforts of explaining.
Advanced Program Student from Ontario, Canada:
SubhanAllah, the Tafsir classes are just excellent. The effort put into preparation of the classes and the ikhlas of the teacher is inspiring in itself. Alhamdolillah, the classes have opened my heart, increased my imaan and tawakkul on Allah swt. Arabic classes are also amazing and very well taught. The teachers are so kind and understanding. I have tried to learn Arabic from other sources but after joining Maryam Institute, I am very satisfied Alhamdolilah. The language opens and connects and the picture becomes clearer after every class.
Quran Program Student from South Africa:
I was anxious at first, coming from a third world country, skeptical about distance learning and unsure if my computer literacy was sufficient. Alhamdulillah, everything was pointed out clearly, step by step, we constantly receive reminders, help is offered and everyone is very obliging, including fellow students! This is the first time that I have registered with a formal institution and I cannot imagine my life without it. This course has given me immense fulfillment, a great purpose in life and absolute enjoyment! This course has taken priority over my life, my days and my time, as I love the study of the Qur’an.
