With the leadership of the Islamic Institute of America, Al-Hujjah Islamic Seminary was inaugurated in the fall of 2017 with nine courses.The seminary has offered four years of courses, totaling 960 number of classes. Al-Hujjah Seminary is a unique Islamic seminary that offers all of its classes in English, and knowing Arabic is not a requirement to join the seminary. This seminary maintains a high standard of instructors who are fluent in English, have been formally trained in the top Shia seminaries of Qom and Najaf, and most of whom also have an academic background. This provides students an excellent opportunity to combine between eastern, traditional sources of knowledge and western academia.
