Dar Us Salaam currently has approximately 150 students and it costs roughly $300 USD per year to sponsor a student. The students’ costs include food, clothing, healthcare, and school supplies. Since its establishment Dar Us Salaam has provided free classical Islamic education for students throughout Mauritania, West Africa, and worldwide. Dar Us Salaam was established in 2003 by Shakyh Salek Bin Siddina, one of the top scholars of our time who has taught and trained students from all over the world including many notable people in the United States. Dar Us Salaam was founded with the goal of establishing a place where the transmission of sacred knowledge could take place. Additionally the school provides clothing, food, medicine, and shelter to all of its students. In addition to providing free classical education, Dar Us Salaam also operates as the headquarters for humanitarian relief throughout the region. The school provides free health care, distributes sadaqah and zakat, and also builds houses, irrigation systems and wells. Dar Us Salaam also conducts Udhiyya as well as Aqiqah ceremonies as part of its charitable operation. Funds are needed so that the students can continue to attend Dar Us Salaam and benefit from the quality classical Islamic education that it offers. We are encouraging everyone that is able to sponsor at least one student for a full year by donating $300 USD, however any charity you are able to give is welcome and greatly appreciated. All donations tax deductible.
