From the most important reasons why Zidni Islamic Institute was established is because we find that today students of knowledge are lost and confused in terms of how to seek sacred knowledge. The vast majority of students when they first begin seeking knowledge they waste an unbelievable amount of time asking, searching, comparing, and switching academic programs. They jump from one book to another and from one teacher to another without actually finishing a single text. This is the reason that most students who embark upon the path of knowledge for years never get past the first level of knowledge and therefore eventually quit without completing their studies. We also find that students may study some subjects while completely neglecting others, or beginning with advanced texts and differences of opinions before mastering the basics of the science. This is especially true in the West, where students often cannot find qualified teachers to take them through the correct methodology of knowledge. The methodology of seeking knowledge is based upon knowing which subjects are studied by others, which texts are studied before others, and which way of explaining is given to which students. Zidni Islamic Institute provides a step by step well rounded program guiding students from beginning to advanced levels of knowledge. It is our hope that we can fill a void that is desperately needed in Western Islamic education.
