The benefits of having a university education are manifold and range from financial to cultural. The Holy Prophet (SAW) has said “Seek Knowledge even if it as far as China.” A perfect example of this quote was done by one of our very own community sisters. Fatima Munir Walji has gone all the way to Korea to achieve her dream of learning 15 languages. This is her story!
The education portfolio of The World Federation of KSIMC are pleased to launch to you our recently published book; ‘The Alternatives to Our Current Higher Education Centres’ and hope you enjoy reading about the different opportunities available to our students despite the increase in tuition fees across the world.
