ABOUT THE SEMINARY

The Boston Islamic Seminary is an institution of higher education that aims to train religious leaders who will serve the American Muslim community, and to enhance the understanding of Islam in the contemporary context among people of all backgrounds.

WHY THE SEMINARY?

The American Muslim community is at a defining moment in determining its future outlook and place in American culture. Though we have seen growth in population and institutional development, there remain difficult and perplexing moral, intellectual, socioeconomic, and civic challenges that impede a more fruitful and God-conscious lived reality for Muslims in America.

Boston Islamic Seminary seeks to address this challenge by engaging students of all backgrounds in an exploration of Islam in the contemporary context, and by equipping future religious leaders with the intellectual, spiritual and practical training to serve the American Muslim community.
