In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

Praise be to Allah for His countless graces, and thanks are due to Him for His bounties that cannot be estimated. And peace and blessings be upon the best of mankind, the perfect light and the final Prophet, Muhammad, the chosen one of the all Messengers, peace be upon him, and upon all his family and companions, and upon those who follow his way on proper terms.

To proceed …

There is no doubt that education is the foundation for the progress of nations and peoples. One of the greatest sciences taught are the sciences related to Shari`ah and religion, which we offer in our Department of Islamic Studies. The department was established at the same time as the establishment of the college in 1417 A.H. In this department, we strive to consolidate the true Islamic faith, serve Islamic sciences, and contribute to community services and problem solving, through programs, courses, related scientific research and practical training, with emphasis on quality standards and their application in accordance with the Saudi Vision 2030. We ask Allah to crown our efforts and our pursuits with acceptance and uprightness, and to make our knowledge and deeds beneficial to Islam and Muslims...
