Student Testimonials

… I am so grateful that I signed up and took the course. It has helped to clarify questions that before the course, I did not even have in my mind. It has given me confidence in my salat, at least I know the rulings … and tremendous appreciation to our Ustadh Shaykh Hamood, the way he taught and presented the course, is what made all the difference. The extra details and research that he put in the course, has made me realize how little I know … The way he taught the course has shown me that knowledge is never ending. I found the course to be very beneficial and very interesting. JazakAllah khair to Shaykh Hamood for all the efforts …

Rayyan Institute has provided easy access to gaining essential knowledge from the comfort of your home. The qualified and dedicated teacher [Shaykh Hamood] along with the administrative and technical staff, provided an in depth course in a professional manner. Salaat is a primary act of worship and the Salaat for Women course allowed immediate application and awareness in my daily prayers, with a noticeable improvement in Khushoo’ during prayers. Following the course, I am more aware of the relevant sunnah of our beloved Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) and I understand the reason behind the specified practice. Alhamdulillah.
