“The believers are but brothers, so make settlement between your brothers…”


(Qur'an 49:10) 


about us


Founded in 2015, The Centre for Intra-Muslim Studies (CIMS) is an joint initiative between scholars and researchers of both the Sunni and Shi'i schools of thought, aimed at uniting Muslim communities worldwide. With scholars being at the forefront for change within Muslim communities, CIMS hopes to establish mutual understanding among scholars of different schools of thought, who can then disseminate their findings to grass-roots communities with the help of scholarly resources.


Our mission is simple: to promote increased harmony within Muslim communities and the broader human family by providing a platform for scholars and researchers to come together to discuss and understand the commonalities and differences amongst the various of schools of thought within Islam.
