Come and learn about the religion of Islam in an academic setting.  The for credit course is open to people of all faiths or no particular faith.  The class is always made of diverse students from all ages, races and religions.

You can register online, if you wish.  Go to the nvcc website (  and click on the button for registration.  You should go to the Alexandria campus section, then click Religion, then go to REL 233, and follow the instructions.  If you need further help, please email me back, but it’s pretty self-explanatory.


I’m looking forward to seeing you — Tuesday, September 26th 2008 at 4:30.

    From basic concepts to advance topics, this course covered it all. Imam Johari was very approachable in all regards to help, assist, and guide in the wonderful journey of learning about Islam.

    E. Harrison, another professor who helps in the class, is a very kind hearted, open, intellectual woman who adds more perspective to this course, as she is of another faith.

    We had a diverse group of students with different thought processes, and we respectfully spoke about controversial and non controversial issues openly, which only made the class better. Imam Johari, inspired me, and helped me live a better life, do consider this course!
