Summer Program for K-16 educators at Dar Al Islam

04 Jul 2021


The 32nd Teachers’ Institute is from July 4 - 17, 2021

The Dar al Islam Teachers' Institutes have been held at our famous facilities in Abiquiu, New Mexico since 1994.

Our goal is to enable educators to teach about Islam with greater confidence. Participants gain a deeper understanding of the basic tenets of Islam and see how Islam works in the daily lives of the program’s Muslim faculty and staff.

Through discourse, study of texts, and interaction with Muslims, some of the questions we seek to address include:

How did Islam become the second largest world faith?
What should we know about Islam and Muslims in America today?
What are the common links between Islam, Christianity, and Judaism
How does Islam view reform, diversity, and change?
How can one most effectively teach about Islam in the classroom?
The Program:

This is a two-week residential Institute that covers Islam from a normative perspective. Using primary texts and classical interpretations, University professors and Islamic scholars cover in depth and breadth

Islamic faith & practice
Culture and civilization
Contemporary issues and world-view of Islam
Existing resources & curriculum for social studies, religion or world history classes
