A few years ago, based on the feedback and conversations we had with our Alumni, we decided to revamp our Islamic Studies program for High School students. During this process we decided to look at higher educational institutions and courses they offered. Allah guided us towards Manara Institute and thus a wonderful relationship was formed.
