Our Story

In 2010, the Imam Shatibi Institute was established by Al Muntada Trust, aiming to elevate Qur'anic teachings in the UK. Inspired by top scholars who had studied abroad, the Institute quickly garnered attention, drawing students nationwide, especially from London. These students were trained to recite the Qur'an with a level of expertise previously seen only in traditional Arab lands.

While the Institute has seen changes over the years, its commitment to quality Qur'anic education has remained steadfast. Expanding its influence from London to cities like Birmingham and even Scotland, it has significantly shaped Qur’anic studies in the West. As they move forward, the focus is to deepen the understanding of the Qur'an's core teachings, ensuring it's not just recited but truly internalized.

I have listened to some of the recitations from the students of Imam Shatibi Institute and found that they achieved perfection in their application of tajweed and also exercised good application of Qira’at from their teachers. I hope the Imam Shatibi Institute becomes a role model centre for the learning of Qur’an and Qira’at in Europe.

I was filled with happiness and joy witnessing Imam Shatibi Institute being established to serve the Holy Qur’an and its different Qira’at in order to build a Qur’anic generation to spread Qur’an across  the country. The Imam Shatibi Institute is considered to be the only place in the west specialising in this field, especially for Ijazah.
