The Meem Institute was established in Leicester in 2011 in order to transmit the sciences of the Deen, particularly the three sciences of Islam, Iman and Ihsan.
We offer a wide range of courses from the Sacred Sciences.

The Meem Institute intends to hold monthly seminars spanning over two days for Muslims from all over the UK to receive intensive classes on key aspects of the Deen, from Aqida to Tasawwuf and Tafsir of Qur’an to Arabic grammar, classes are taught by Shaykh Ali Laraki and other ulama from around the country. These weekends are based on a yearly course culminating in an Ijaza issued by the Meem Institute and signed by the teaching ulama.
The Meem Institute is also very active in daʿwah and realises the importance of sharing the Deen of Islam with the non-Muslims with which we share this land. We hold regular speeches and invite guest speakers, to exhibit the similarities rather than the differences between cultures and how Islam is that key aspect that would so drastically improve the lives of the citizens of this country.
The Meem Institute holds a weekly gathering of dhikr in Leicester. The evening begins at 8:15 pm and starts with the recitation of Qur’an in the riwaya of Warsh from Nafi, this is followed by reciting the Wird of Shaykh Muhammed ibn al-Habib and a Dars is delivered by Shaykh Ali Laraki. The evening is concluded with traditional Moroccan tea and snacks and a qasidah is sung from the Diwan of Shaykh Muhammed ibn al-Habib, may Allah be pleased with him.
The youth of this country are of great importance to the Meem Institute. We aim to get young Muslims participating in projects and learning within their communities by holding a variety of event such as talks and classes, weekend seminars and outdoor activities.
