How much does ilmburst cost?
It is free to create an ilmburst account. To have full and unlimited access you must subscribe to the gold membership which is a one off annual fee of £50. We also have a subscription package for Islamic schools/Madrasahs.
Do you accept all major credit cards?

What is the welcome page on each resource?
Many of our resources come with a welcome page. This page gives you tips and ideas on how to use the resource. You do not need to print this page off.
Why do you only accept an annual fee and not a monthly fee?
We have strived to make ilmburst cheap and accessible to all. Our gold membership works out to just over £4 a month. To help keep our costs down and admin work to a minimum, we take a single £50 annual fee which then gives you unlimited access for a year. This then helps to keep our fees low too.
Is my membership fee taken every year?
Ilmburst offers a recurring membership which means the fee is deducted from your account annually. However, you have full control over your membership level and can choose to go to free membership at any time, and no fee will be taken. You will receive an email a few weeks before your membership is due for renewal.
Can I cancel my membership?
Yes, you can choose to downgrade to a free membership whenever you choose. However, we are unfortunately unable to offer any refunds. Please refer to our terms and conditions.
Can I share an account with another person?
No, it is one account per person/family. Each person has their own membership and they can then use it for their children.
What if I want to subscribe on behalf of an Islamic school or Madrasah?
For Islamic schools and Madrasahs we have our gold plus package. This allows you to share the login details with all your staff so that you can all benefit from ilmburst. The gold plus package will also soon have unique content like pdf templates and lesson plans.
Which version of Islam do you follow or which madhab?
At ilmburst we respect and love all of the great scholars of Islam. We aim to provide authentic content in line with the Qur’an and Sunnah. Our content is checked by qualified people.
Does ilmburst cover different age groups?
Yes, we cater for three age groups, 6 and under, 7-11 and 11+. The reason why we have age groups and not specific ages is that we realise not everyone starts their Islamic education from the same age, and there is no formal system as opposed to mainstream education. No one is ever too young or old to learn about Islam.
