Our Qabeelah is Going Green!

We are working hard to minimise our carbon footprint and would appreciate if you could join us in our efforts to go green.

Steps we are taking to better our Qabeelah:

  • Avoid using individual packaged food at lunch by bulk catering
  • Finish our stock of any plastic/polystyrene so we can convert to decomposable or reusable utensils
  • We will be encouraging refilling water bottles and request students bring reusable bottles and hot drink flasks
  • Promote recycling throughout the course
  • Changing to providing e-notebooks rather than printed course booklets
  • Removing the use of plastic wristbands on entry to the course.

Steps you can do to help:

  • BRING YOUR OWN HOT DRINK FLASKS AND BOTTLES. We will provide tea, coffee and water for free if you can kindly bring your own flasks and refillable water bottles.
  • Keep an eye out for our recycling bins and use the correct bin accordingly
  • Please assist us in providing you with packaging free lunches by buying from our lunch menu where we avoid unnecessary plastic packaging as much as possible.

Have you applied for a Scholarship in Bradford before? *

Conditions and Requirements*

  1. Must attend course in full
  2. Must sit exam
  3. Must be punctual
  4. Only one application per household

Once a scholarship application is made the contract becomes binding. If granted, scholarships are non transferrable and non refundable.

Please ensure you have enrolled for the course before applying for a scholarship.

I understand that funds are limited and an amanah (trust) and by accepting the scholarship I am potentially taking from someone else who may be in more need. I testify to the best of my knowledge that
as Allah SWT as my Witness I truly need a scholarship to be able to attend.

If you are successful in your scholarship application, the option for paying the reduced fee will become available online. We will no longer be taking cash payments on the day


AlMaghrib Institute provides the 'Honoring the Huffadh' program which basically means you can apply to take a free class, once every year. The key here is that you have to apply for this scholarship, so this is not a guarantee!!

However, since it is a viable option for people who have memorized the Qur'an, We do recommend that you take advantage of it and at least submit the application for the Huffadh scholarship.

There are 2 key things to this process:

Application Process

Download the Honoring The Huffadh application form

Complete the Student Information section about yourself

Complete the Seminar Information section about the seminar your want free

Complete the Verification Information section about your hifdh and a signature from your teacher or Imam

Email the form, by scanning both pages , to registrar@almaghrib.org no laterthan 14 daysbefore the seminar begins

Deadline

In order for us to have enough time to submit all of the forms, the deadline to get everything to us is 2 weeks before the scheduled seminar date.

Reference /Verification

Also, please make sure to find someone with a credible title to fill out the scholarship application. AlMaghrib HQ asks that it be the Imam or the Administrationof the Huffadh program who can vouch that the student is indeed a Hafidh, so just make sure you find someone at your masjid who is part of the Admin, but the Imam, Teacher or Assistant Imam of the masjid would be ideal, inshaa' Allah.


Looking for nice, cheap accomodation?

We may have some pre-booked rooms available.

First come, first serve basis!
