Our Goal

Suffah Educational Guidance strives to serve as a sanctuary for the expanding local Muslim community, offering a space for prayer and functioning as a hub for reflection, safeguarding, and practical application of traditional Islamic wisdom.

Our History

Alhamdulillah, Suffah Educational Guidance has graduated over 300 Huffaz and 25 Aalim in the Chicagoland area over the past 17 years. Our institute, offering programs like the Hifz program and an Alim course for both men and women, has recently acquired a former church in Skokie, IL, with the grace of Allah SWT and community support. This significant development allows us to better serve our growing community. With your continued support, we aim to transform this new facility into a hub for learning and spirituality, introducing programs for adults, adolescents, and children. Our vision is for this institute to evolve into a Masjid—a center for worship and community unity, fostering a holistic approach to learning. Your support is essential for the success and enhancement of this noble initiative. May Allah SWT bless our efforts and grant us success in this collective journey of enlightenment and empowerment.
