Where it all Started
Jannah Institute began its educational programs in 2013, where it began as the only learning institute in Saint Louis, MO to offer Quran and Islamic Studies courses with a strong focus on Tazkiyah. Jannah Institute is dedicated to providing Islamic education for women by women. Alhamdulillah, all Praise to Allah, Jannah Institute has expanded to reach students from all over the globe. Jannah Institute also offers its educational programs on multiple platforms, including onsite, online, or web streaming services, as well as free weekly programs hosted live on JI social media pages, all to accommodate the greatest number of students possible.
To inspire women from all backgrounds by bringing the light of Islamic knowledge to the hearts and homes of Muslim women.
To teach the divine understanding of the Qur’an and Prophetic Sunnah. The Islamic and Quranic courses are designed to enable students to develop an intimate relationship with Allah. The goal is that students strive to find inner peace, develop Islamic character and become, and raise children who become, valuable members of the Muslim Ummah.
Jannah Institute is committed to offering accessible Qur’anic and Islamic education to Muslim women across the world. With Allah’s grace, we hope to inspire women to desire to live according to the teaching, values, and manners taught in the Holy Qur’an. We aim to be the means by which mothers are able to learn, love, and live Islam on a daily basis so that one day they can transfer this love on to their own children.
Our values reflect the traits and qualities that define the culture of our organization guided by the teachings of the Qur’an.

Message from Dr. Sh. Haifaa Younis
To My Dearest Sisters In Islam,
Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said:
وَمَنْ سَلَكَ طَرِيقًا يَلْتَمِسُ فِيهِ عِلْمًا سَهَّلَ اللَّهُ لَهُ بِهِ طَرِيقًا إِلَى الْجَنَّةِ وَمَا اجْتَمَعَ قَوْمٌ فِي بَيْتٍ مِنْ بُيُوتِ اللَّهِ يَتْلُونَ كِتَابَ اللَّهِ وَيَتَدَارَسُونَهُ بَيْنَهُمْ إِلاَّ نَزَلَتْ عَلَيْهِمُ السَّكِينَةُوَغَشِيَتْهُمُ الرَّحْمَةُ وَحَفَّتْهُمُ الْمَلاَئِكَةُ وَذَكَرَهُمُ اللَّهُ فِيمَنْ عِنْدَهُ
Whoever travels a path in search of knowledge, Allah will make easy for him a path to Paradise. People do not gather in the houses of Allah, reciting the book of Allah and studying it together, but that tranquility will descend upon them, mercy will cover them, angels will surround them, and Allah will mention them to those near him.
