founded to mark the 1400th anniversary of the Muslim conquest of Islamicjerusalem by the second Caliph ('Umar Ibn al-Khattab) in 16 AH (637 AD), a radical turning point in the history of the Muslim Arab East. The Academy was established to advance Muslim education and research, with special reference to the promotion of studies and research into Islamicjerusalem Studies.
As a result of the lack of academic research and material on the subject of Islamicjerusalem and as part of the Academy ongoing programme to become an international platform for the discussion of the studies and issues relating to Islamicjerusalem. It has been decided to initiate an annual conference in the hope of establishing a new frame of reference. The conference aims to provide a forum for scholars working on the subject and all those who wish to enhance their appreciation of any aspect of Islamicjerusalem.
Since 1997 ISRA held nineteen successful international Academic conferences on Islamicjerusalem. ISRA will be organising the 21st Academic conference on Islamicjerusalem in December 2021. Click READ MORE below to see our upcoming and previous conferences.
These come with the aim to try to fill the gap in scholarship on Islamicjerusalem Studies, as their is a serious lack of academic research and material on the subject of Islamicjerusalem. Recently the Academy with one of its partners have worked to provide all of these publications online through an online Library.
