"Almir Colan’s genuine care, extensive knowledge and creative ways to explain complex issues make his course very engaging, interesting, and highly beneficial. I took the course and I must say, the thoroughness of each subject matter is much more than what you would normally expect from an intensive Islamic Finance course."

Sadia Karim
CEO, Yurizk

"The AusCIF course is spectacular, it provides the student with a concise yet holistic understanding of the vastly growing Islamic finance industry and its innovative Shariah-compliant products. Though what I mostly found intriguing was its practical approach to dealing with everyday transactions. As Muslims we are compelled to further our Islamic knowledge in order to correctly incorporate it into our daily lives, this includes the ability to identify prohibited acts hence avoiding them. I highly advise my brothers and sisters to register to this course, its truly a wonderful opportunity for them to understand the Islamic position concerning transactions."

Sheikh Moustapha Sarakibi

"I did benefit from your online course a lot, from there I started my research on Islamic banking and finance reporting requirements compliance with Sharia."
