Universiti Sains Islam Malaysia (USIM) is an emerging Islamic university; the 12th university to be fully owned and funded by the Malaysian Government. It aims to spearhead knowledge and be the global reference centre for the integration of Naqli and Aqli knowledge.
USIM adopts a balanced approach to education, blending both physical and spiritual components, embedded not only in the academic programmes offered but into its administration and management practices as well. Against this backdrop, USIM embraces a holistic approach towards the delivery of knowledge, which unites the revelational sciences (Naqli knowledge) and the rational sciences (Aqli knowledge).
USIM thus offers a unique model for Islamic higher education, setting it apart from the other Islamic universities worldwide. The integration of religious sciences, together with the social and physical sciences in all of its programmes, provides a comprehensive understanding of the current global problems and offers a fresh alternative for approaching and solving them.
