These past decades we are seeing more and more Shia families immigrating to non-Islamic countries and face great challenges to keep the faith of themselves and their children. In addition, every day, there are people seeking the truth and converting to Shia, Islam. As a result, the number of Shias who have little or no bond to Middle-Eastern countries is growing drastically. This growing number signals an amplified need for more scholars and lecturers who can act as a shelter in this storm of faithlessness, doubt, and dilemma. Guiders who can help protect the most precious treasure we all have: our faith and to not let the beliefs of the first, second, and third generation of immigrants, as well as converts, die out. Unfortunately, this could happen if there are not enough compassionate, supportive, and pious scholars.

It is most advisable for a society to have scholars of its own as Allah (s.w.t) says in the holy book of Qur’an:

فَلَوْ لا نَفَرَ مِنْ كُلِّ فِرْقَةٍ مِنْهُمْ طائِفَةٌ لِيَتَفَقَّهُوا فِي الدِّينِ وَ لِيُنْذِرُوا قَوْمَهُمْ إِذذا رَجَعُوا إِلَيْهِم
“Why do not some people from each group of believers seek to become specialists in religious learning and, after completing their studies, guide their group so that they will have the fear of God.”

Imam Sadiq Online Seminary has taken necessary steps to pave the way for those who are eager to keep their faith strong but are unable to relocate to Qom, Najaf, or other Islamic schools in the Middle East due to their circumstances.

Imam Sadiq Online Seminary is an independent non-profit, non-political seminary established in 2012 in cooperation with well-educated and compassionate Hawzah teachers in order to train pious scholars and preachers. We have two active offices and studios in Qom and Najaf.

• Almost 3000 prerecorded Hawza lessons in English and Farsi,
