Frequently Asked Questions

An 85% pass mark needs to be achieved for the quizzes, exams, and student presentations. A student’s attendance record will also be factored into their overall mark. More details will be given to students who are accepted into the program.

Classes will start the weekend of January 22nd 2023 and end on July 21st 2023 inshaAllah. 

Class will be on Sunday at 9 PM London / 4 PM New York* / 8 AM Sydney*

*Classes will always be according to London time, even after the time change.

There will be no classes during Ramadan or Eid.

Exams will be conducted during mid-July. More details will be given to students who are accepted into the program.

Our classes are different from other menstruation courses. Whereas most stick to teaching a traditional text, we strive to give teachers the tools of how to teach this knowledge to the masses in a way that they can comprehend, as well as providing an insight of how to deal with common menstruation issues in today’s times.

Classes will be a mixture of topics:

  • The knowledge included in ‘A Muslim Woman’s Guide to Menstruation Rulings’ will be taught at a teacher’s standard.
  • Common mistakes that women and teachers make will be addressed.
  • Common questions that women and teachers ask will be mentioned. 
  • Student questions. Students can ask their related questions during the live session or on the forum during the week. 

No. The program is beyond understanding the concepts included in the book. It is intended to give hands-on training to teachers of how to teach the fiqh of menstruation to the general population, as well as provide them with a foundation for future academy classes related to advanced problem-solving.

If you believe that you understand everything in the book and do not want to be trained in how to teach it (or certified), then this may not be the program for you.

No. This program is a prerequisite. It will integrate many principles and concepts that will serve as a foundation for our advanced classes. Classes will build on the method that is taught in this course.

The key to knowledge is repetition; there is no harm in repeating the theory with another teacher. In addition, hearing the rulings taught in different ways can be very helpful for your understanding.

No. Attendance is mandatory. InshaAllah the program will be offered every year for those who cannot make the current time. Policies related to missing class due to sickness or emergencies will be discussed with students who are accepted into the program inshaAllah.

Furthermore, this is a teacher’s training program. To be trained, students must attend live. Classes will be interactive and student participation is required.

Recordings will only be used for students to revise what was covered in the live sessions and they will not be a replacement for attendance.

You can submit your application and indicate that you are not interested in certification. However, there are limited spots available.  Applicants who are seeking certification will be given priority over applicants who are not seeking it. 

Every week students will be assigned a chapter to read from ‘A Muslim Woman’s Guide To Menstruation Rulings.’ There will be additional reading or quizzes about the concepts mentioned. Students should estimate dedicating around two to three hours of additional time outside of the weekly 90-minute sessions inshaAllah.

The exams will consist of testing a student’s understanding of the theory taught and live student presentations. Students will be asked to teach certain topics from the book to their classmates like a mock class. This will help ensure that students not only learn the theory, but they are guided on how to teach it inshaAllah.

Our advanced classes are unique. They will teach problem-solving skills at an understandable pace in English. Students will also gain knowledge of how to resolve problems related to modern-day questions that Ustadha Naielah frequently receives. More details will be released in the fall of 2023 inshaAllah.

No. This is a sisters-only course.

InshaAllah accepted applicants will receive an email by January 3rd 2023.  A payment link will be included to confirm their placement in the program. Thereafter, students will receive access to the course page. More details will be given to accepted students.
