My name is Ahmed Shaaz from the Republic of Maldives. I am currently a lecturer at the Islamic University of Maldives (IUM). I have 3 years of experience in teaching there. After my B.A (shari’ah) degree, I did a Master of Comparative Laws at the International Islamic University Malaysia. As well as I have a diploma in teaching secondary level. I have published 4 books and I have been contributing articles, essays to various websites. I am very proud to mention that I have been awarded to write Friday khuthuba by Ministry of Islamic Affairs, Republic of Maldives.
I have recently been accepted to study in the Doctor of Philosophy (Law) program at the International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM).
At the moment my only income is my salary while I have a family of five members under my guardianship. Besides, I am yet underway to repay the loan which I took from the government to do my master’s degree. After receiving my offer letter, IIUM has revised its fee structure and it has a huge increase in my program fees as well. I need £25,000 for the whole program. I have contacted all my immediate family members and friends and several relevant bodies for a grant but have been unsuccessful so far. For the reasons, unfortunately, I and my family cannot afford the cost to attend IIUM. Despite financial hardship, I have always done what is necessary to further my studies and work experience.
I humbly request you to help me for the program. As it would be a golden opportunity for me to complete my studies at the International Islamic University Malaysia. At the end of the day, I will materialize my dreams by paying my best services for the country after getting graduated from University.
May Allah reward you for your generosity and do dua that I may fulfil my ambition to study.
