SCROLL DOWN FOR SCHOOL IMAGES
Imagine an Islamic Seminary with a hifz and Arabic program.
Imagine an elite academic program with STEM, robotics and competitive sports. Imagine a school that focuses on the body, mind, and soul.
Help build it.
Nizamiyya was launched in September 2022 by a team from Harvard, MIT, and UC Berkeley, coming together with students of some of the Ummah's greatest scholars and researchers.
The goal is to incubate an Islamic school model where seminary, academics, and competitive sports are delivered with Ihsan to prepare the next generation of leaders.
Our goal is to produce highly knowledgeable students who are not only prepared to pursue further studies at seminaries but also equipped to attend top-tier universities across the globe and contribute positively to society.
Why incubate in Istanbul?
With a large ex-pat community from the U.S. and the UK and a lower cost of living/wages, we were able to hire highly qualified teachers and religious teachers with ijazas (licenses to teach). Once the Nizamiyya model is perfected, we aim to scale, establish, and partner with existing Islamic Schools worldwide.

Piety… Compassion… Rigor
Our goal is to nurture spiritually-grounded, morally-committed & intellectually-curious servant leaders who can benefit their families & communities — locally & globally.
To meaningfully make this happen, our goals are a practiced mastery of Islam, a rooted understanding of Iman, & prophetic character directed to Ihsan. It is in this fertile soil that a love of knowledge is nurtured and learning takes root.
We believe that our students need to engage rigorously with the Islamic tradition as well as with the arts, humanities, and STEM fields. We challenge our students with both the technical know-how and ethical demands of AI and robotics.
We seek to encourage a zeal for excellence, love of lifelong learning, & pursuit of meaningful life-callings according to their unique interests and talents.
We also recognize that the Ummah’s schools are in desperate need for resources that ground students in the Islamic worldview while also building character and discipline of the mind, body, and soul.
In addition to crafting resources to support existing curricula for math, science, and the language arts, our research team of specialists in education, science, and philosophy are also traditionally trained in the Islamic sciences by our Umma’s top scholars to redefine the standards of education. Our advisors are from Harvard, MIT, and UC Berkeley.
We seek to cultivate wisdom, compassion, and a sense of prophetic duty toward family, community, and Ummah.

Our Mission
The mission of Nizamiyya is to prepare spiritually-grounded, morally-committed & intellectually-curious servant leaders who can benefit their families & communities — locally & globally.
