Al-Hikmah University began the process of its registration in early 2000 when the Abdul-Raheem Oladimeji Islamic Foundation (AROIF) (Nigeria) in partnership with the World Assembly of Muslim Youth (WAMY) signified the intention to establish a private University in Ilorin, Nigeria. With the collection of appropriate forms and payment of required fees to the National Universities Commission (NUC) and after visits by NUC inspection teams, various registration documents were prepared, submitted and ratified by NUC.
With the License, Al-Hikmah University commenced the process of giving practical interpretation to the ideals envisaged in our mission/vision, objectives, programmes, teaching policy, facilities, student admission and registration procedure and our fee structure.
As an institution committed to the promotion of sound spiritual, moral and academic excellence, Al-Hikmah University will serve as a viable option of sacrifice to complement the efforts of Government at State and Federal levels in the process of nation building and educational development.
The mission of the University would be, among others,
1) To train and equip with sound university education men and women who would be mentally resourceful to contribute their quota to the development of the nation.
2) To provide Nigerian youth with quality higher educational opportunity, this will serve to complement the efforts of government, at State and Federal levels.
3) To give qualified scholars and professionals the chance to seek and also contribute to knowledge. The university will achieve by making the admission of Students and recruitment of Staff open to all irrespective of religious inclination, gender, nationality, tribe, and political persuasion
