Praise be to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Prophets and Messengers:
By the grace of Allah, his Glorified and Exalted to sent Muhammad peace be upon him with guidance and the religion of truth the dominant religion over all religions, and send him revaluation in the form of Quran and Sunnah; to purify people from doubts, desires, and misguidance; hence if people turn back to revaluation their condition will improve, they will live a better life here in the hereafter and their relation with Allah will improve. Hence, the crisis in the world and what happens in it, because they distant themselves from Allah rules, so we are in need to go back to the Quran and Sunnah.
The beneficial Islamic study is one of the methods that ease the way of understanding to return back to the Quran, Sunna. Hence, we need schools to teach people these assets, especially the presence of modern methods that need to used, whether that was the media or the means of communication channels to connect. This is what guided my brothers in the Academy, led by Sheikh Rashid bin Othman al-Zahrani to seek the spread of knowledge through the establishment of Open Islamic Academy. We have full access to see all of their work and activities. Also we have full cooperation with the academy regard to their programs, activities, and their technical affairs. Therefor I promised everyone studied in the academy you are among those whom the prophet (PBUH) mentioned in the hadith (the angels spread their wing to shade student of knowledge appreciating his work) and in another hadith (if Allah wants to favor you, will makes you among those who understand and seek knowledge). Also Allah SWT said in the Quran (And it is not for the believers to go forth [to battle] all at once. For there should separate from every division of them a group [remaining] to obtain understanding in the religion and warn their people when they return to them that they might be cautious) Surah Al-Taubah verse 122. Therefore there is great reward for every one participates and work in the academy. I wish this project to be a torch of light and guidance and to be among what Allah SWT said (And who is better in speech than one who invites to Allah and does righteousness and says, "Indeed, I am of the Muslims.") Surat FUSSILAT Aya 33.
Finally Allah knows the best and peace be up on our prophet Mohamed, his family and all of his companions.
