About the Site

:بسم الله و الحمد لله و الصلاة و السلام على رسول الله و بعد

This site is designed primarily for Canadians seeking information about the Islamic University of Madinah in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Due to the vast differences between Canadian standards and life in the Middle East, it can sometimes be quite difficult to find clear-cut information when it is needed. Thus, the purpose of this site is to make matters easier by providing detailed information and step-by-step instructions for those who:

  • Wish to learn more about the university and student life
  • Intend to apply to the university
  • Have submitted an application and are curious about its status
  • Have been granted acceptance into the university and need to know what steps to follow thereafter
  • Are new students trying to adjust to their new environment
  • Are students that are married or intend to marry and bring their wife and/or children overseas to live with them


As procedures, requirements, and circumstances change, so will the content of this site insha-Allah. However, please be advised that in many instances changes are not clearly communicated and they can sometimes occur quite rapidly. Thus, there is always a possibility that this site is not entirely up-to-date.

NOTE: Although this site is compatible with all internet browsers, it is most compatible with Google Chrome.
