Scholarship Donors

The International Open University (IOU) strongly believes that sponsoring an underprivileged student’s education is one of the best charitable ways one can spend their money, as not only does it benefit the student and the community around them, but also benefits the donor with hassanat (good deeds) whenever that knowledge is used and shared.

There are thousands of Muslim students across the world who dream of education but do not have the means or resources to pursue it. The Global Quran Memorization Center’s scholarship program aims to fulfill the dreams of such students who are living in medium or low developed countries and already memorized the entire Quran (or 20 Juz") with a very good level of memorization and Tajweed rules, and want to receive a certificate of memorization or Ijazah (certification).

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), said: “Give charity without delay, for it stands in the way of calamity.” (Al-Tirmidhi)
