SiblingsOfIlm is an online portal uniting students of sacred knowledge across the globe in one place with an aim to produce content relevant to their studies.

Established in September 2015 by two siblings studying the ʿAlimiyyah course, the core purpose was to share what they had learnt to a wider audience through one of the world’s most powerful tools, social media. After the first year, we registered SiblingsOfIlm on Facebook and Twitter too, which meant we were able to reach many more seekers of knowledge. An online portal in the form of a blog website was then introduced in order to assist seekers in enhancing their studies as they tread the path - content ranged from articles, write-ups, and excerpts from books contributed by both students and scholars alike.

During this period, at SiblingsOfIlm we also delivered two webinars. The first being ‘The Prerequisites of Students Of ʿIlm’, and the second being 'A Walk Through Surah al Fatihah' - a two-hour webinar Tafsir going through the opening chapter of the Qur'ān. Most recently, we hosted a ‘Journey Through the Last Ten Surahs’ in preparation for Ramaḍān - a webinar that was extremely well received and received glowing reviews from the e-attendees.

We are now in 2019. With more than 7,000 seekers on board, and approximately 1,000 unique visitors on the website monthly, we want to take SiblingsOfIlm to the next stage.

What does the next stage look like to us?

  1. Due to limited resources, we can only host a single webinar per year, but we would like to offer these more regularly, expand our bank of resources, and host lessons to benefit all students throughout the course of the year.
  2. Begin a podcast series discussing topics which would be specifically beneficial for seekers of knowledge - for example, in contextualising contemporary issues within the realms of Islām and how students can navigate these outside of the classroom.
  3. Introduce a series of short clips and/or infographic videos discovering the history of a lot of the ʿilm we learn - by creating short informative snippets, they can be of benefit to not just seekers of knowledge, but all those striving to learn more.

And this is where you come in!

SiblingsOfIlm has always been, at its core, run by students for students. And this is exactly how we’d like to keep it. But in order to do that, we need your help. With your monthly contributions, you will be supporting us in:
  • Maintaining the web host for the portal
  • Bringing in tutors to host a variety of high quality courses
  • Purchasing specialist equipment for podcasts/videos etc.
  • Running the ‘Ask a Question’ student helpline
  • Publishing books and resources that are tailored to your needs
  • Getting skilled creatives on board to make accessible content
  • Compensating writers for their contributions to the portal

But, we don't want something for nothing. This portal is ultimately for you, and whether you are contributing $2 or $20, we would like to say thank you in the best way we know how - to see what these are, have a look through the tiers.
