Welcome to Tayseer Seminary
Tayseer Seminary is a full-time Islamic theological seminary in Knoxville, TN. The seminary aims at transforming Muslim individuals through the enlightened and relevant study of Sacred Knowledge and through spiritual immersion, all while targeting contemporary issues within the Muslim community.
The Seminary features a fully-developed Islamic sciences curriculum initiated and taught by our local resident scholars Shaykh Hassan Lachheb and Ustadha Zaynab Ansari. Tayseer also features a full-time Qurʾān School and after-school programs under the direction of Hafiz Noman Zaheer and an annual Umrah tours along with travel packages.
“Tayseer operates at the very juncture of the crisis of faith in our community. We are losing our young people. And that’s why we designed our program for our youth. It is a lot more than a gap year. It is a year of God.”
– Shaykh Hassan Lachheb, President of Tayseer Seminary
