Imam Muhammad Bin Saud Islamic University,

Al-Imaam University
Ar-Riyaadh, Saudi ‘Arabia

In the Name of Allaah, the All-Merciful…


Al-Imaam Muhammad bin Su’ood Islaamic University, or Al-Imaam University for short, opened with two colleges, the College of ‘Arabic Studies and the College of Islaamic Law in 1953 in Ar-Riyaadh. Since then, many colleges have been added, as well as branches in other cities. Similar to Al-Madeenah and Umm Al-Quraa, non-‘Arabic speakers have a chance to learn ‘Arabic here from the beginning in an ‘Arabic Language Institute designed specifically for them. They can then continue their studies in ‘Arabic or seek admission to one of the colleges.


To be considered for admission, applicants must be 25 years old or younger with a high school diploma (at least 80% average or better). Their application must include photographs, copies of passport, birth and health certifictes, high school transcripts and a copy of the diploma, all verified by the Saudi Embassy of their country. Also required are letters of recommendation from known Islaamic organizations or personalities


The school provides the students with a monthly salary of SR 845 (about $225), a round-trip plane ticket yearly, discounted meals, and free housing (for single students only). A single student should bring about $1,000 to get by initially. After that, the monthly salary is sufficient for single students living in the dormitory. Married students who have children should expect their living expenses to be $6,000 to $12,000 yearly, depending on their standard of living, number of children, etc.


We do not currently have an application available for downloading. Howeve you can write the school to request an application:

P.O. Box 5701

    Actually i’m from Philippines, i just want to know what are the requirements needed or qualifications before enrollment there at Imam university.. what are the procedures needed also.. hope you can answer me and help to get there, inshaa allaah…

    • Assalaamu ‘alaykum,

      All the info needed is on the top of the page… In short, you must be under 25, have a few tazkiyahs, have good grades in your high school, and be able to provide all the required docs they ask for. read the above article for more info (its all there)…

      • Abdulrahman Amlih Says:

        where can i send my requirements via email? is there a course arabic language for non-arabic speaker like me? can u give the website and where can i send my documents?

        • Assalaamu ‘alaykum,

          1) Allaahu ‘alam if they have started their online procedure yet. I don’t think its up and running yet, so you would need to send it via mail.

          2) yes there is a two year course where you learn to speak Arabic.

          • abdulrahman amlih Says:


            What are the other subjects aside from learning arabic offered in shuhbatul lughatul arabiyyah?

  32. Ibn_mohammad Says:

    Salaam walaykum,

    When is the deadline to apply for year 2012/2013?

    JazakAllahoe gayran

    • Wassalaamu ‘alaykum.

      There is no specific deadline, they just keep filing up till no spaces are left, then all the rest of the application forms they get from that date onwards they put in the pile for the coming year. This is usually around Muharram time, however it can differ a little here and there.

  33. Asalaamu Alaykum
    Do you know when the university will release a list of the applicants accepted for Fall entry 2012?? I’ve applied and a brother at the uni has told me i’ve been accepted but at the moment I have no way of confirming this. My name’s Muslim Stevenson.
