About Us

The Islamic Academy of Coventry was established as a resource for Islamic Knowledge for all Muslims regardless of background, creed or culture. The Academy will also provide up to date information of Islamic Events, Masjids, Madrasah's etc in Coventry. It was the wish of the late Maulana Suleman (May Allah grant him paradise) that a centre of learning be established in the heart of Coventry. May Allah accept the efforts of all those associated with the Academy.
