Hamad Bin Khalifa University’s (HBKU) College of Islamic Studies (CIS) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Al Jamia Al Islamiya, an Indian institution of Islamic higher education. 

The document, signed at the Education City, outlines common objectives to exchange academic expertise, professional experience, and specialised skills. The agreement also creates a scope for HBKU and its counterpart to organise symposia, seminars, and conferences.
CIS dean Emad El-Din Shahin and Al Jamia Al Islamiya rector Dr Abdussalam Ahmed signed the agreement in the presence of distinguished guests. The MoU allows for the exchange of faculty and graduate students, combined research, and mutual academic and executive courses between the two parties for a period of three years. 
Dean Shahin said, “The agreement marks a significant step towards achieving a mutual understanding with our colleagues within India’s academic community. CIS and Al Jamia Al Islamiya’s common foundations and inclinations as higher learning institutions for Islamic studies allow for a progressive partnership that enables our respective students and faculty direct access to cross-cultural opportunities for innovation, education, and research.” 
Founded on a forward-looking model, Al Jamia Al Islamiya initiates a holistic Islamic educational modality that blends traditional Islamic tenets with modern perspectives. Today, it enables thought-leaders, preachers, activists, media persons, writers, scholars, and intellectuals with far-reaching contributions to Kerala’s communities and beyond.
Dr Ahmed said,“We are delighted to place on record that this landmark agreement will go a long way in embarking on a strategic partnership with our universities in promoting institutional excellence in teaching and research, mutual exchange of faculty members and students, collaborative research activities and various multi-disciplinary academic initiatives.”
“This MoU sets forth the intentions of the parties for increased collaboration, cooperation and mutual understanding exploring all possible avenues in cementing our ties. Al Jamia looks forward to deepening our collaboration with more mutual endeavours in future.” he added.
