The Faculty of Islamic Studies and Shariah was established in 2014
when the the then College of Education Zanzibar (COEZ -1997-
2014) was transformed to fully fledged Abdulrahman Al-Sumait
University in which the Department of Islamic Studies and Shariah
was upgraded.

The objectives of the Faculty are: to prepare graduate researchers to
face the challenges of globalization by articulating the ultimate
objectives of Sharia in serving humanity; to produce a generation of
Sharia scholars to fill the demand gap of the community locally,
regionally and globally; to prepare qualified teachers for secondary
schools and to produce personnel to serve in the Islamic Business
Sector as consultants in Sharia matters.

The Faculty comprises two departments of Islamic Studies and
Sharia (under construction)
