Certified Islamic Studies A-Level and GCSE (Online)


Course: Cambridge International AS and A Level Islamic Studies (9488). This is an internationally recognised course and qualification. Please note that places are limited to the first 40 successful applicants.

I have had several requests asking if students can still enrol on the 2022-2024 Cambridge A-Level Islamic Studies course. The answer is yes. I have decided that whoever wishes to join us can do so. New students will be given access to all the previous class notes, recordings (all classes are recorded) and articles – so really, it’s not too late. I have designed each week as a stand-alone lesson which means that previous knowledge is not essential (though it may be helpful). This course is open to men and women, and the fees are reasonable.

If you’re interested, please send us your email address and we’ll send you more details (inshā’-Allāh):

Abu Khadeejah ʿAbdul-Wāhid Alam

Question from a prospective student:

I am interested in this course but I want to know whether it’s worth it. What is the difference between taking this course and one who reads the free Islamic material on Shaikh Abu Khadeejah’s website, or other Islamic books recommended by the Shaikh that can be purchased from a bookstore?


In the name of Allah, Most Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy.

Yes, it is possible. However, it is like buying an A-Level book in biology and reading it at home without attending college and without a teacher—or picking up Buloogh Al-Marām of Ibn Hajr and reading it from cover to cover to learn Islamic Fiqh. No doubt, you will benefit but it is undirected study—and when you do not have a class that you know you must attend weekly, most people lose the enthusiasm, and leave their A-Level biology book (or Buloogh al-Marām) unread except for a few chapters. Furthermore, a qualified teacher can explain things that are not apparent in the direct reading of the text—things that require extensive reading and understanding from other source materials.

Additionally, as it relates to A-Level Islamic Studies (Cambridge), there is no published study guide, so Abu Khadeejah has produced his own study notes specifically for his students that are not available elsewhere.

The students who attend the lessons know that they have to get through a lot of material in just two hours of direct learning a week, and then they are given homework that is marked, so they are encouraged to solidify their understanding and memory of the subject. 

The lessons are delivered via live video classes, the audios are recorded and PDF study notes delivered to the students through the Google Classrooms portal.

So, as you can see, studying in a classroom environment for just two hours a week is far more beneficial than trying to study alone without guidance. Also, knowing you have paid for the course gives you a further incentive to attend! And guidance and success are with Allah, the Most Kind and Generous.

May Allah bless you.
