The Madina Methodology

Our teaching methodology is unique in its process to teach students the variety of viewpoints within the bounds of Ahl’ Sunnah. This approach provides students with an unbiased understanding of many schools of thought. At Madina, we believe in providing knowledge and information, not indoctrinating a particular point of view. This results in a well-rounded seeker of knowledge. We believe in making knowledge accessible to those who are unable to seek it out in a full-time manner. We provide students with in-class instruction and one-on-one attention from each teacher.
