”I have been fortunate enough to attend some of the classes given by Dr Mohammed Akram Nadwi in Oxford, Cambridge and London, and I would certainly recommend them to anyone seeking to increase their understanding of the sciences of Islam. Dr Akram’s knowledge is both broad and deep, his training is traditional, his presentation is lively and relevant to our lives today, and one feels that his intention is truly to raise the level of every Muslim. His work on the women scholars of Islam is timely and inspirational, revealing the little-known fact that many thousands of women scholars were involved in developing and maintaining the tradition of scholarship in Islam. This was the case right from the earliest community in Madina until only about 200 years ago. Dr Akram makes sure that his knowledge is accessible to all seekers, regardless of gender, in the most correct and generous way, and his courses thus contribute to restoring a balance and harmony. The courses planned for Cambridge are an opportunity not to be missed!” – Aziza Spiker, Cambridge
