Dārul-‘Ulūm al-Ashrafiyya operates continuously from the month of Shawwal to Shaban. Classes are not in session in Ramadan and during the Eid al-Adha holiday. All federal holidays are also observed.

Classes are held each weekday from 7:45 a.m. to 2 p.m. Fridays are half days. A detailed daily schedule and course load will be provided upon admission. A sample of the first-year curriculum can be found here.

Once a month, classes will be held on weekends. Also, students and teachers will hold check-in assessments once a month to gauge progress and discourse on spiritual growth.
