Why are you charging for religious education it should be free?
After much consideration and scholarly consensus, we adopted the affordable tuition fee model which proved to be the best in the current scenario. To support the decision for charging a nominal fee we use the following hadith.
“The thing for which you most deserve to take payment is the Book of Allah,” (narrated by al-Bukhaari),
The course fee is only to cover up the cost incurred by the institution. If we receive surplus funds, we put it back in to the organization or to sponsor students who cannot afford to pay the entire course fee etc.
Are there any prerequisites for the course?
There are no prerequisites, however one must be fluent in the medium of instruction.
Where does all the money go?
Azaan is not for profit organization. The course fee is only to cover up the cost incurred by the institution. If we get surplus funds, we put it back in to the organization or to sponsor students who cannot afford to pay the entire course fee etc.

You’ll know the worth once you experience the seminar yourself.
How do the Azaan Institute’s courses work?
We usually conduct or courses on Sundays which is a public holiday so that people from all walks of life are able to attend. Our single day intensive courses start early in the morning and end late afternoon. Our POWERTALKS are of short durations.
Is there a separate seating arrangements for men and women?
Yes, we have separate seating arrangements for men and women with proper segregation.
Why such long teaching hours?
It is not easy for everyone to take out time daily from their schedule thus it’s easier to take out one whole day to learn about a single topic which may take weeks to cover up if taught on regular basis for short period.
Is there an exam after completing the course?
An exam is administered online about 3-4 weeks after the course. The exam can be conducted from the comfort of your own home. The challenge of the exam truly maximizes the benefit students attain from the course, and helps them retain the knowledge they have acquired. After successfully passing the Exam with minimum of 60% marks, a certificate is awarded to the student which is jointly signed by Azaan Institute and Dawah Academy.
Can mothers attend the course with their young children?
Mothers can attend with their young children in a separate room via an AV feed so as to maintain an atmosphere of mutual respect, privacy and comfort for all attendees.

Azaan’s binders are precisely designed for its course. The course material that students are provided with is usually a synthesis of classical and traditional texts, designed to be more relevant and to specifically benefit modern audiences.
