What is the Tamhid Summer Program?

The Tamhīd Program is a seven-week immersion that intends to guide the student through a transformative journey to understand and appreciate the core principles of Islam. To this aim, the Tamhīd Program offers two complementary components; the Deen Intensive, which provides strong foundational knowledge of the essentials of orthodox Islam, and the Arabic Intensive, which provides a glimpse into Qurʾānic Arabic. 


An emphasis on the spiritual development of our students is woven into the program, complementing the rigorous yet balanced selection of courses that aim to instill a solid foundation in religion. Through personalized guidance and support, students embark on a personal journey to Allah that enriches the beauty of the Deen in their hearts. 


A rigorous yet judicious selection of courses introduces our students to the fundamentals of religion that prepares them for the intellectual challenges of the modern age.

Student Experience

A holistic Muslim experience is not limited to the classroom and extends beyond. The Tamhīd program offers a comprehensive and inclusive student experience, fostering personal growth, strong community bonds, and meaningful connections through various activities both inside and outside of DarusSalam.

The Arabic Intensive aims to expose the students to the fundamentals of Arabic and develop within them an ingrained appreciation and continuous passion for the Arabic language. 

About the Program

The Arabic Intensive program is designed to provide students with a strong foundation in the basics of Arabic language. Through a comprehensive curriculum that focuses on grammar, vocabulary, and conversation, students will gain a solid understanding of the language's fundamentals. The program includes interactive classroom sessions, engaging exercises, and individual assignments that cater to the needs of each student. By the end of the course, students will not only have a solid grasp of the language but will also have developed an intrinsic appreciation for it that will encourage them to continue learning and exploring its complexities.

For your convenience, the Tamhīd Program offers a meal plan service for those interested in opting for freshly cooked lunch and dinner during their stay. Each day, students who have chosen this service will need to fill out a form before 9:00 AM to select their lunch, dinner, or both, according to their preference. This allows you to enjoy delicious and nutritious meals while focusing on your academic and spiritual development throughout the program. The meal plan costs $6/meal. Meal plans can be purchased on site.
