Welcome

Ahlan wa sahlan wa marhaban bikum

I heartily welcome you to the Department of Arabic and Islamic Studies, University of Ibadan where cutting edge scholarship, un-paralleled zeal to open up new horizons in Arabic and Islamic scholarship constantly drive staff and students on a daily basis. Our Department pioneered the study of Arabic and Islamic Studies at Tertiary level in Nigeria.

I am happy to note that presently, as has been the case in the past, members of the academic staff of this Department and the students are involved in expanding the frontiers of Arabic/Islamic scholarship through a balance of the Old and the New. The academic staff here rank among the best in the nation.

I invite you to take a moment to learn more about what makes this Department a fountain for others in Nigeria.

Yours sincerely,

Prof. K.K. Oloso
