Preparing the Next Generation of Intellectual & Spiritual Leaders

A non-profit international school based in Istanbul

About Nizamiyya

Nizamiyya is an institution that works to nurture the pursuit of Allah’s pleasure in our students through seeking a practised mastery of Islam, a grounded understanding of Iman, and a character directed to Ihsan.

Our principles of piety, rigour, and compassion act as the foundation on which we build, helping us to decide what to teach, how to teach, and the goals to which we direct our students.

Shaping Future Generations


Nizamiyya is a premiere educational program in a family-like environment that fosters spiritual, intellectual, & physical growth for our students.


The mission of Nizamiyya is to prepare spiritually-grounded, morally-committed & intellectually-curious servant leaders who can benefit their families & communities — locally & globally.


We seek to encourage a zeal for excellence, a love of lifelong learning, & the pursuit of meaningful life-callings according to their unique interests and talents.

Groundbreaking Beginnings

By relying on Allah and joining all our hands together, we witnessed the launch of this groundbreaking project. It’s not just about building a school; it’s about creating a nurturing environment for our children. At Nizamiyya, we believe that it takes a village to raise a child, and we strive to provide a harmonious village where the intellectual, physical, and spiritual growth of our students can flourish.

Meet The Team

We believe that our students need to engage rigorously with the Islamic tradition as well as with the arts, humanities, and STEM fields. We challenge our students with both the technical know-how and ethical demands of AI and robotics.
