What do previous students say?

“I had my doubts about coming to ALIM before, and even after, registering for the program, especially about giving up a month of my summer break after a really stressful year and about whether I would be able to get along with the other attendees, who I was sure would be younger than me. Well, alhumdulilah, ALIM has been totally worth it. It has helped me refocus on what is important in life. I leave with a renewed commitment to my faith and a revived motivation to make a contribution in my community. At times the scholars made my brain hurt, but it was a good pain that reminded me I haven’t really been using the faculties Allah has blessed me with in the way I should be using them.” ~ Sabiha D.
