The Al-Ameen program is an outstanding opportunity. As with any language program, you get out of it what you put into it. With the Al-Ameen program, the opportunities for benefit are extensive, and are all the more impressive considering the affordability of the course. The classes are not only small, but tailored to suit your skill level. The homework assignments are thorough and relevant.

The accommodations are excellent, considering the choices otherwise available in Cairo. And, in terms of personal relationships, the organizers are wonderful, humble people, and I became great friends with my colleagues on the trip. If your goal is to connect more closely with the Qur'an, then this program is well-suited for you. I am thankful to have had this opportunity. - Omer M. Mozaffar SUMMER 2007
This program is for the serious student . If you are in need of an opportunity to devote your time to advancement in the arabic language, this is the way to go. We were provided with quality teachers who took their tasks seriously and a caring staff. Come prepared to learn and you will, inshallah. — Anita Summer 2007
I reverted to Islam in 1991 and since that time I have participated in numerous classes in Qur'an and Arabic language. Alhumdullilah, during that time my knowledge has increased but what we accomplished in one month at Al-Ameen's 2007 Intensive Arabic and Qur'an Program at Al Azhar University was monumental. Immersed for 30 days in historic Egypt, provided the environment for learning and the practical application thereof in the streets of Cairo, which can not be duplicated anywhere in the U.S.

After completing the intensive program my capacity for reading and understanding the Holy Qur'an was increased so much so that for the first time in my life I was able to complete the entire Qur'an in Arabic language during this Ramadhan with proper tajweed. I strongly encourage all students of Islam and Arabic language to invest their time and resources into the Al Ameen program, the rewards, Insha Allah, will be enormous. — Wayne (Abu Bakr) Summer 2007
I joined this program last summer as a graduate student in Islamic Studies with advanced language skills. I found the teaching staff to be excellent and the coursework to be challenging. The Qur'an (tajweed) instruction is impeccable. I would encourage more advanced learners to apply. If you have any interest in long-term study in Cairo or at Al-Azhar this program is the perfect introduction. — Ibrahim Summer 2007
Alhamdulillah, it is a good concept and should be supported. I found myself conflicted with my time b/c yes I was there to study arabic but it was also my first time in Cairo and there was so much to experience. The scheduling was excellent for the purpose of the course (ie to focus on and learn arabic). I had been considering coming again in July but we are expecting that month so it is not possible... Sister Matiniah, If there is any help I can offer please don't hesistate to contact me. Allah (swt) knows best. Hope all is well with all. — Khalid Summer 2007
