Utrujj is an education foundation that has served the Muslim community in the UK for over 15 years. Since 2001, Utrujj has delivered hundreds of courses, seminars, weekend retreats and online lectures.
Utrujj is based on the prophetic saying of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be on him),
‘The example of the believer who reads the Qur’an and applies it is like the “Utrujjah” (a type of fruit). It has a nice smell and a sweet taste.’ (Bukhari)
We believe that we should ‘Learn, Love and Live Islam’ because one cannot understand without learning, one cannot love without understanding and one cannot truly live Islam without loving it.
Utrujj has had many teachers and experts in the past, each specialised in their field of knowledge. Shaykh Haytham Tamim is the main teacher and founder.
It is through developing a deep understanding of Islam and improved character that Utrujj has strived for the betterment of individuals, families and communities.
What has distinguished Utrujj is its creativity. Its success has been driven by the relevance and flexibility of its courses, appealing to a wide range of students, as well as pioneering new techniques and formats for improved learning and self-development
Today, Utrujj continues to deliver courses, bespoke retreats and family events to increase people’s knowledge of Islam, improve their character and contribute more to their family and social environment.
