Is the iftaa course available for females?


I hope and trust that you are well and in the best of health...


I'd like to know if the iftaa course is available for Aalimaat as well (through correspondence)? 


If yes, could you kindly inform me of the application processes etc.


Jazakallahu Khaira 


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

We regret to inform you that Darul Iftaa only offers an on-campus programme for ‘ālims. We do not cater for females for now nor is the course offered through correspondence at the moment.


We make du’a that Allah grant you success in all your endeavours.


And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
