All Praise is due to Allah Almighty, and His peace and blessings be upon Prophet Muhammad His last messenger.

The Islamic University is an educational institution based in the city of the Prophet which is a beacon of light.

It is one of the early prestigious universities in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Since its foundation in 1381 AH/1961, it sought to serve as a leading international beacon of Islam and knowledge with a commitment to excellence and inclusiveness, to promote a positive impact on the local and international communities.

The Vice Presidency of Development has a key role, as it is the university’s executive body to achieve its strategic plan, vision, mission and objectives, and contribute to enhancing its institutional performance, human capital, technologies, services and infrastructure.

It also works on developing products, services and projects with a financial return, as well as ensuring the sustainability of the university's financial resources through direct supervision of the university's endowments (Awqaf) and investments.

I ask Allah Almighty to help guide us to do what is in the best interest of our beloved university and country.

Vice President for Development

Dr. Fahd bin Khaled Al-Dhafiri
