About Badr

Badr was founded in 2009 by Shaykh Mahmoud Shire. The purpose of the Academy is to extend and deepen the fund of Islamic Education and pass the benefits on to others, and to be able to provide the utmost standard of Islamic Education to students in a climate that fosters academic excellence, where each individual student is valued and departs the establishment with a character that is atoned with that of a Muslim.

Our vision: To be a recognised institute for producing Muslim advocates who take a different approach in promoting Islamic values, are aware of the needs of society and have sufficient Islamic skill-set in Islamic knowledge to provide for the communities appropriate services.


Our mission: We will achieve our growth through partnership (regional and international) and develop our comprehensive Islamic education footprint. We will achieve this vision by building strong and prosperous relationships with partners that we feel will enhance our Academy in a positive manner.
We will focus on the Arabic language to provide the key to Islamic knowledge for the students and we will endorse the proper understanding of religious sources in avoiding following human whims and desires often leading to extremism, intolerance and religious violence.


Badr Academy was found in 2009 by Shaykh Mahmoud, who has studied different Islamic sciences and [the] Arabic language in Saudi Arabia and other countries around the world.



We have both male and female students and all classes are segregated.



Our school is based in West London.


We run retreats on a yearly basis for our students which consist of intensive classes, exam-prep, one on one time with teachers, and athletic activities. We also host Umrah trips throughout the year.



Our senior teachers have recieved ijaza in different fields and studied all over the world.  They have also been taught under the graduates of Islamic University of Madina & Islamic University of Al-Imam Muhammad Ibn Saudi in Riyadh to name a few.
