Moving to Najaf for studies

Recommended Posts

Salam alaikom

I was wondering if its possible for a Westerner to go to Najaf for studies. Do they give visas for that purpose? Also, is the hawza system there similar to Iran's, where its basically a university, or more traditional? Just wondering :)

I know people who have gone to Najaf for studies and are still studying.

I am sure you can get visa to study at Najaf.

The level of Islamic education at Najaf is, of course, the best in the world. 

My understanding is that you will have to learn Arabic regardless where you go, but in Najaf it will be more urgently required.

Yeah, I know I'll have to learn Arabic before I go.

Do you know any prominent Hawza's in Najaf? Like in Qom there's Al Mustafa, then a lot of other smaller ones......
