• About

    In 2009, Zaytuna College was founded in Berkeley, California, with a mission that called for grounding students in the Islamic scholarly tradition as well as in the cultural currents and critical ideas shaping modern society.

  • Academics

    As a Muslim liberal arts college in the West, Zaytuna offers a curriculum that provides its students with a foundation in the intellectual heritage of two major world civilizations: the Islamic and the Western.

  • Admissions & Aid

    Our mission is to educate students to become morally, intellectually, and spiritually accomplished individuals ready to contribute to our contemporary world in ways that are proportionate to their gifts and to the needs of human society.

  • Campus Life

    Zaytuna’s campus is on Holy Hill and students enter the College as part of a cohort, a community of learners that travel together through the curriculum.

12000 Strong

12000 Hearts Beating as One Can't Be Beat

The Messenger of God ﷺ said, “12,000 will not be defeated for lack of numbers.”

Our Prophet ﷺ has promised that God will never abandon 12,000 Muslims united for a cause. We need you to ensure Zaytuna College reaches that number—and has the care of Providence. Giving a consistent amount each month will help establish Zaytuna College as a top-tier educational institution and serve as a beacon of light for generations to come.

Your support ensures that our students receive a well-rounded education that rivals the best colleges in the world. Our students graduate debt free and without any government support thanks to your generosity.  

For your unwavering commitment, we want to bring Zaytuna to your homes. Our 12000 supporters will enjoy benefits such as a monthly book club led by President Hamza Yusuf, high-quality online courses, monthly e-newsletters, and more. Join the 12000 community today and help revive our intellectual tradition.
