​Institute of Islamic Education (IIE) was founded by Shaykh al Hadith Mawlana Qari Muhammad Abdullah Saleem and his late wife under the patronage of Hadrat Mawlana Muhammad Naim Sahab (RA), Shaykh al-Hadith of Darul Uloom Deoband Waqf. Established in 1989 in Elgin, IL, IIE is an independent, not-for-profit, full-time educational institution aimed at providing its students with an education in the sacred and intellectual foundations of Islamic heritage.

We have grown from our humble origins and now are educating brothers and sisters on two separate campuses. We offer three full-time programs; The Hifzal-Qur’an Program integrated with High School, the Ālim Program, and Ifta (authority to issue religious decrees, i.e. Fatwa). IIE follows a classical method of instruction, emphasizing close teacher-student interaction, and focusing on textual transmission and analysis. IIE also offers weekend and evening programs for part-time learners.

We invite you to learn more about our Institute and our programs, both full-time and part-time. May Allah the Most High bless you now and forever.
