That’s why QUL stands for: Quest for Understanding and Living. And when we were thinking about what name to give this college, QUL stood out loud and clear as it linked back to the short and wise sayings of our Beloved Messenger, peace be upon him:
“qul amantu billah thumma istaqim”
“Say: I believe in Allah, then be steadfast.” (Reported by Muslim)
To gain firm belief (iman) in Allah, you need knowledge.
To gain knowledge, you need to exert effort to aquire beneficial Islamic knowledge.
To gain beneficial Islamic knowledge, a nurturing and supportive environment will encourage you.
