  • He was clear, concise and to the point. He addressed contemporary topics that we might find uncomfortable to discuss (eg relationships, sexuality), and clarified the position we take in Islam according to Divine Wisdom. Lessons were informative and interesting, and the level of interaction and audience involvement was perfect in order to keep focus. He encouraged participation and never made anyone feel a question was not worth asking or was too simple. I would encourage anyone to engage with his teaching as I felt it benefited me greatly.
    Sister H, 30, Doctor from Bradford
  • I would 100% recommend it. It was my first islamic course as an adult and I felt that you explained things really well and clear. Alhumdullilah I learnt alot and would definitely sign up to any other course you offer.
    Sabeena, 28, Teacher from Bradford
  • Ustad Muhammad Ali Alhamdulillah is an amazing teacher who helps everyone and anyone without judgment and i trust him to teach me about the deen, he has also helped me a lot because I myself struggle and feel shy talking to imams and scholars in case they dismiss my questions or make me feel im not a good Muslim…. Every class i have taken with Ustadji i have thoroughly enjoyed and learnt so much and always look forward to my classes.
    Rashda, 34, Breastfeeding Peer Supporter/Housewife from Halifax.
  • I would say Ustadh Muhammad Ali is a very understanding and knowledgeable teacher who is committed to what he does. Ustadh always puts in effort for his students and ensures that he explains every concept thoroughly, on a level that the students will understand. As a student I'd say that it's very important to keep up with the lessons and stay committed in order to make the most out of the learning. However Ustadh is always understanding and approachable with any issues we may have or difficulties that we face.
    Numaan Gulfraz, 19, Keighley, Software Development Apprentice
  • A very knowledgeable person who explains in detail and ensures a person is satisfied by the response provided. Ustaad has a very calm demeanor and shows empathy and respect to the students whom he teaches. He allows others to join the discussion and share their viewpoints before replying to the initial question. Ustaad has clear boundaries and has a humorous attitude after the initial few weeks. My time being taught by Ustaad was a fantastic experience and allowed my confidence to grow due to his approach. He answered every question asked with the upmost respect. Which was the complete opposite from my earlier experiences where I was scared to ask questions.
    Nomaan, 26, Primary School Teacher from Bradford.
  • If you want to learn from a teacher who gives you an answer which is direct and to the point, then consider learning from Ustadh Muhammad Ali. In the current world we live in we are drowned with the immense resources that are available to learn islam, which is great and at the same time every confusing. If you are someone like myself who's very busy with work and sadly may not have the time of going in details and learn different rulings regarding a matter and read various books around fiqh/ hadiths. It is best to turn to a teacher who will have the answer and guidance on what to do in different matters. Another thing that is good is that Ustadh Muhammad Ali is not shy to talk about topics that may be controversial in current society and we are told to just brush them under the rug. This is important for the next generations.
    Nisa, 26, Pharmacist from Bradford
  • I would say that you teaching style is very clear and to the point. You explain concepts in a way that anyone of any ability understands. You always leave with something when you teach. When you teach you make it very relatable by explaining things that happen in real life(I’m not sure how to explain this) . Your lessons are never boring. I was only 14 when I started the Islamic foundations course, you taught imam ghazlis letter to a disciple- it was the best thing I’ve ever been taught. Literally changed my life. I always recommend your courses to family and friends
    Maariya, 21, University Student from Dewsbury
  • That you are able to understand the cultural background of many youths and provide an Islamic response to issues that they can relate to. Its not a mere lecture, Islam feels more part and parcel of everyday life.
    Ifrah, 30, Teacher from Bradford
  • Do it! I have learned a lot. The lectures were neither too fast nor slow. He gave beautiful insides to topic that I partly knew but never thought about from that aspect and helped me to develop a deeper understanding in some Islamic concepts. I studied with him spirituality and he taught me things that I could implement in my life and I hope I am capable of doing so. I liked the script and was thankful that I was able to ask my questions and got always answers that satisfied me. I'm looking forward to learning again from him. Also as someone who is living in a place where there are not really people of ilm and no possibilities (that I know of) to learn on that level it's a blessing to have these kind of opportunities.
    Hikmet, 24, University Student from Germany
  • To ANYONE, of any age, background or level of knowledge, wishing to learn Islamic Studies from Ustadh Muhammad Ali, I would say stop considering it and take a leap of faith and just do it, because you don't realise how lucky you are and how lucky you find yourself being in a position to attend classes with Ustadh Sahib, as some of us are willing him to come teach closer to us outside of West Yorkshire! You will find it difficult to come across a more straight talking, authentic, knowledgeable and down to earth teacher who is able to deliver knowledge to all age groups from children all the way to seniors, in a very relevant, accessible and digestible way which is reflective of the akhlaq, modesty and manner taught by our Beloved Nabi, sallahu allayhi wa Aalahi wa sahaabahi wassallam. If you want to learn, he is willing to teach you. May Allah swt preserve, protect and maintain all of our gems of teachers and all of the Ulema, Allahumma ameen
    Farah, Manchester
  • I am from Huddersfield. I studied with Ustaad at Isnaad in Manchester. His teaching was passionate and he engaged well with his students. I remember looking forward to his teaching because he had a way of drilling into us important knowledge with some humor. Infact, I am wanting to study with him again with my 2 daughters once face to face teaching resumes Inshallah. Nothing can replace the value of being in the actual presence of a good teacher I've studied with a few amazing teachers but Ustaad is unique because he understands the issues of our youth and the pressures they face.
    Dr Shazia, GP, Huddersfield
  • Ustadh Muhammad Ali is an excellent teacher who uses a holistic approach in his classes. He coherently explains concepts and definitions with their explanation, but, more importantly, he contextualises them for modern-day society. His reflections are always insightful and make one stop and reflect. He is a highly approachable teacher, something that the Ummah needs in our young teachers, which meant if I was ever unsure about something, I didn't feel nervous or shy to ask him because he was positively receptive to any queries I had. He is passionate about the youth and we need more people like him teaching in the community.
    Bareera, 22, Occupational Therapist from Bradford
  • I did the foundation year which had module with Ustadh Muhammad Ali. His modules were my favorite because he was very thorough. He was straight to the point and didn’t sugar coat anything and gave the reality of things. He was very respectful and as a sister who attended, the Ustadh didn’t look at the women and lowered his gaze even when answering questions which made me feel very content Alhamdu’Lillah. Ustadh Ali is very knowledgeable and down to earth and shares his own life experiences and is young so can relate to a lot of society especially working professionals. I thoroughly enjoyed learning from Ustadh Muhammad Ali and even though at BMC it was just a few modules with the Ustadh, doing a full time course with him would be amazing.
    Asha, 28, Primary School Teacher from Bradford
  • Learning with Ustadh is fun when it can be and serious when it needs to be. Every lesson for me personally was delivered to me on my level of understanding and to one which I needn't to ask for extra help. Ustadh is very approachable in Q&A's.... And doesn't make you feel bad for getting something wrong... Instead he questions his own methods of delivery to see where he could improve.
