Who We Are
Established in 2007, International Open University (IOU) is first of its kind in the Muslim World having over a decade of experience in providing world-class Islamic education at exceptional value. Being the pioneer in providing Islamized education to Muslims around the world, we continue to nurture and educate the brightest minds of this Ummah — creating a new model of enlightened pedagogy.
At IOU (Urdu), our Instructors and scholars are the cornerstone of a diverse, innovative and intellectual community, who are continuously engaged in developing new courses, strategies and modes of teaching. Through their knowledge, experience and passion, students are equipped with the essential understanding of doctrines of Islam to lead a balanced personal and professional life.
We strive to provide courses that are accessible for all, and thus can be studied from anywhere around the world. The flexibility of our courses makes it easy for our students to set their own pace and make schedules that can be fitted comfortably around a career or other responsibilities.
We are committed to the propagation and application of Islamic knowledge, transforming lives and serving others for the benefit of the Ummah.
