A Word From Our Founders
MAS Katy Center community members thought back in 2011 that it is time to advance the educational service the center is providing to higher education, instead of K-12 level only. Dr.Hamed Ghazali and Dr.Main Alqudah have initiated Guidance College, formally known as “Al-Huda University”, as a response to the increasing demand for Islamic education for adults. A lot of MAS members, community members at large, and the administration of the MAS Katy Center supported the idea and facilitated the birth of this new project.
Since then, Guidance College kept structuring its work, stabilizing its finances, and improving its academic performance. It strives to keep its mission of disseminating Islamic knowledge as authentic and relevant as possible. Allah willing, Guidance College will become the center point of the sacred Islamic knowledge in the United States of America.
Guidance College shall be one of the top well-recognized universities in the United States that offers graduate and undergraduate degrees in specialized Islamic fields aiming at preparing moral and well-knowledgeable leaders who provide research-based Islamic alternatives that enable the Muslims to contribute to the success of their country.
Guidance College is the place where students gain their undergraduate and graduate degrees in authentic and professional specialized Islamic knowledge that recognizes modern-time realities and allows them to examine different branches of knowledge from an authentic Islamic perspective which enables them to think ethically, logically, analytically, and critically while making responsible and moral decisions aiming at improving the quality of life for all inhabitants of the earth with a full understanding and appreciation of the cultural and human differences.
