Preparing the next generation of American Muslim Religious Leaders



The Boston Islamic Seminary is committed to the authentic, balanced spiritual and intellectual heritage of Islam, deeply rooted in the compassionate teachings and wisdom of the Qur’an and the Prophet Muhammad  (p.b.u.h.). We pledge to uphold the Islamic duties of submission to God and service to humanity, anchored in the teaching that only through righteous action towards others is one’s faith complete.


The Seminary is committed to the search for principled Islamic solutions to the particular challenges facing Muslims in their families, communities, and broader cultural environment. We further seek to build upon and develop the many areas of overlap between American and Islamic values and principles.


The Seminary seeks to train competent Muslim leaders who have the knowledge and skills to help communities navigate new issues and unforeseen circumstances with wisdom, integrity, and compassion. We are committed to facilitating peaceful dialogue and dignified human interaction, as well as promoting the Islamic imperative of being good stewards of the earth.


Boston Islamic Seminary is committed to a policy of nondiscrimination as defined under applicable state and federal laws, including but not limited to Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, which prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex in education programs and activities. 

Boston Islamic Seminary embraces equal opportunity and affirmative action as core values. The Seminary operates a school which admits students of any race, color, and national or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school, and the Seminary does not discriminate on the basis of race in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs. We believe that cultivating an environment that embraces and promotes diversity is fundamental to the success of our students, our employees and our community.
