Our Niyyah

  • Preserve the practices of the Prophet ﷺ and his beloved companions, by teaching sacred knowledge through traditional Islamic methods.
  • DarulUloom of Seattle trains students in Islamic thinking and reasoning. Thus, establishing a sound intellect and knowledge of Allah (swt)
  • The love of Allah (swt) is nurtured which shapes the internal drive of students to serve the sacred religion and its communities
  • Provide an opportunity to parents who want to educate their children in an Islamic environment
  • Through shared responsibility of the institution, the students and their families, students will not only excel in education, but will also practice the Sunnah of our Prophet Mohammed ‎ﷺ as closely as possible


Our mission is to provide an opportunity for all individuals to study the sacred sciences, regardless of age, gender, location and availability. People have this zeal to pursue sacred knowledge, however accommodations, accessibility, and responsibilities make it difficult to access or complete the programs. Thus, we realized that we needed to provide the resources to access religious studies to the various layers of our society. The purpose is to preserve the upcoming generations in America by educating them in Islamic and/or secular education with true scholarship. An educational foundation, in Islamic studies, for all members of our society is the first step to the preservation of the religion. Once a basis of true knowledge is established, the message of Islam can be passed on to others in a secure and effective manner. The objective is to develop the means to transmit and practice the Islamic principles set by the Quran and Sunnah to others. The sacred sciences of knowledge, provided from the Quran and Sunnah, are used as the central authority and guidance to Muslims. In addition, they are the primary sources of studies in our educational programs. By the guidance of educated scholars, the values of Islam may be passed on from teacher to student, to continue the learning cycle.
