Dar al-Ulum (Arabic: كلية دار العلوم‎, kullīya dār al-ʿulūm), is an educational institution designed to produce students with both an Islamic and modern secondary education. It was founded in 1871 and is now a faculty of Cairo University; it may be called Faculty of Dar al-Ulum.

It began as a means to introduce those in mosque colleges to new knowledge emanating from the West. Its graduates include activists like Hasan al-Banna (died 1949), the founder of the Muslim Brothers group and Sayyid Qutb (executed in 1966 for plotting the assassination of Egyptian president Gamal Abdel Nasser), the author of “Social Justice in Islam,” and “Milestones.”

Dar al-ʿUlum was incorporated into Cairo University in 1946 and is now referred to as “The Faculty of Dar al-ʿUlum.” The Faculty is delegated by Cairo University to offer B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. degrees
