MA Islamic Studies
"Being a student at Bayan is helping me grow immensely as a person of faith and student of sacred knowledge, Alhamdulillah. The administrative staff, courses, professors, and students at Bayan are excellent. I am grateful and proud to be the recipient of the Embrace scholarship that seeks to empower Muslim converts by providing them with the tools they need to become leaders and educators in their respective communities."

"Receiving the Muhammad Ali Scholarship from Bayan has been a life-changing experience for me. Without it, I'm not sure at what point I would have pursued my Masters due to not being able to pay the cost of doing so out of pocket. Here I am preparing to be the first person in my family to receive a graduate-level degree. In addition to more traditional institutions of Islamic learning, the American Muslim community needs institutions like Bayan to continue to spread hope and invest in our future leaders here in America."

Muhammad Ali Scholarship
“I didn't perceive that a further academic education would be in my future after my Bachelor’s in Islamic Studies. Bayan offered me the opportunity to afford a Master’s in Islamic Chaplaincy through the Muhammad Ali Scholarship. I fell into prostration to Allah and cried many tears of joy when I received the news that I was accepted into the MDiv program. Insha Allah, I will be the first in my family to receive a higher education degree, and this means a lot to me. What joy this brings to my parents, wife and family who are all alive to witness this and have supported me throughout my journey as a student. Bayan has endowed me with the skills and knowledge to further my career visiting with Muslims patients, which is something that I truly enjoy. I have found the work that I love and the guidance from my professors to enhance these encounters day in and day out. ”
