UMMI Centre

Background Story

“The exploration on integrated spiritual approaches among person with special needs began when Faculty of Quranic & Sunnah Studies (FPQS) started offering the compulsory faculty course, the Application of Braille in Quranic & Sunnah Studies (QNR3013) since 2008.

In 2010, FPQS formed a special interest group (SIG) focusing on Quran Sunnah for special needs which was inspired by Surah al-Qamar:54:17, 22, 32 & 40; And We have certainty made the Quran easy for remembrance, so is there any who will remember? Beside overcoming challenge, UMMI is committed to collaborate with NGOs, institutions and volunteers to develop an Islamic integrated social model based on A,B,C,D approaches [Ability Based; Barrier-Free; Community Based & Dependency].

Ibnu UMMI Maktum Research Centre is a platform for research and services involving special needs community to promote and aspire a balanced lifestyle.

It is a continuous effort in delivering education based on spiritual approach to instill religious knowledge in persons by focusing on learning differences among persons with special needs, based on Integration of Naqli (revealed) & Aqli (human) knowledge.”
