Umm Al-Qura University is one of the earliest universities in Saudi Arabia, as its kernel, i.e., the College of Shari`ah (Islamic Law), was established by virtue of the Royal Decree issued by the King Abdul Aziz Bin Abdul Rahman Al-Saud in 1369 A.H. Hence, it had become the first institution for university education to be established in Saudi Arabia, later Umm Al-Qura University. On 28/9/1401AH, Royal Decree No. 39, based on the cabinet's decision No. 190 dated 19/9/1401 AH regarding the University system, was issued to rename the university as "Umm Al-Qura University".
Then, different colleges started to exist, when the department of Da'wa proposed the establishment of a college under the title "College of Da'wa and Usul-ud-Din", in its meeting held on 24 Jumada II, 1397 AH. The proposal was submitted to the boards in concern. On 21/12/1401AH, the Royal Decree No. 27278/32/3 was issued for the inauguration of the College of Da'wa and Usul-ud-Din. This college is considered as an extension of the two ancient colleges: College of Shari`ah and Islamic Studies, and College of Education along its Arabic Language Institute, collectively "College of Da'wa and Usul-ud-Din."
The College of Da'wa and Usul-ud-Din tries to be an example for the noble role of spreading knowledge, conducting studies and researches, providing high quality and unique education services to the community (Makkah) - the land of the heavenly revelation and the destination of all Muslims.
The College of Da'wa and Usul-ud-Din is planning to lead the field in the Muslim world by providing a unique quality of educational programs, researches and communal services.
