Ribaat is an online academic program that offers courses in Islamic Sciences, Arabic language, and Tajwid of the Holy Quran to women around the world. The program is designed to provide Muslim women with a solid foundation in the Islamic Sciences, partly as a response to the lack of available programs that cater to women in particular and which provide a comprehensive curriculum covering the full range of Islamic Sciences. The aim of the program is to graduate scholars and da’iyas prepared to educate others, as well as to provide independent classes for those not seeking certification. 


In addition to the full academic program, Ribaat also offers short-term workshops focused on specific topics. New workshops are offered online each term, with new workshops added each year. Some of these workshops include:

  • Project Lina: A workshop for converts

  • Ramadan Ready

  • Quran Fluency

  • Family Workshops

  • Speed Reading

  • Spiritual Abuse

  • “Is My Period Over?’


For an uplifting in-person experience, Ribaat holds the annual Ribaat Retreat, a unique opportunity for deep spiritual growth and a wonderful chance to sit face-to-face and heart-to-heart with beloved teachers and fellow students. Days are filled with lessons focusing on personal growth, worship, group activities, and in-person time with teachers. Evenings and nights are filled with worship, prayer, and Quran reading.
