What our students say…
I came to join the course (at SimplyIslam) just to figure out what Islam is about. And, Alhamdulillah, it totally changed my entire life’s perspective. The course is amazing, superb. I really recommend that every single one who’s searching or wanting to know more about Islam to join the course. Because I found Islam through SimplyIslam. [Nur Khairin]
The course pace is very good, the presenter is knowledgeable and open to any question and also let the students participate. I hope the next lesson is not to far apart so the students will be in touch with the Arabic language till they achieve moderate level of communication in Arabic. [Mohamed Yusoff]
Teacher has vast knowledge on language. Able to explain well. Interaction in class using Arabic language also helps to build confidence in speaking. Very generous in giving learning materials. Enjoyed the class a lot. [Rabiah Tul Adauwiyah]
I enjoyed the group dramatisation in class, and I think we should have more of such. [Kamariah Khalid]
Well done SimplyIslam for conducting/organizing the workshop. This is definitely one of the most important workshop for everyone to attend. May Allah bless all your efforts and grant health and success in this world & hereafter. [Nisa]
