Mahallah Ummu Kalthum


Mahallah Ummu Kalthum is now the new name given to the Female Mahallah which was previously called Maimunah.  It was first relocated and operated on 27th October, 2014 and currently has 3 blocks that can accommodate about 1,000 students who come from various countries and cultures.  
The name Ummu Kalthum refers to the third daughter of Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) from his first wife Khadijah bint Khuwaylid (may Allah be pleased with her).  Ummu Kalthum bint Muhammad (may Allah be pleased with her) was born in the best family, and she grew up to become a beautiful strong woman, just like her mother.  Ummu Kalthum was known to be very close to her elder sister, Ruqayyah (may Allah be pleased with her), the second daughter of Prophet Muhammad; so close that they were said to look alike; both married to the brothers from the same household (sons of Abu Lahab); and embraced Islam together on the same day.  
However their marriages to the two sons of Abu Lahab did not last long, and both Ummu Kalthum and Ruqayyah were divorced by their husbands.  Ummu Kalthum then lived with her beloved father and moved to Madinah during the Hijrah. Ruqayyah then re-married to one of the notable Sahabah (Companions), Uthman bin Affan (may Allah be pleased with him) but she passed away after a few years. After her passing, Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) asked Uthman to marry Ummu Kalthum and because of this, Uthman was given the title of Zun Nurain which means the owner of the two lights. 


The Mahallah is lead by a Principal who is appointed to serve as the Chief Executive Officer responsible for handling all its affairs including administration, student's activities, maintenance, cleanliness, discipline and security.

Fellows are appointed to assist students especially after office hours in matters regarding activities, discipline and welfare.

The Principal is assisted by two full-time staffs and occasional part time staffs concentrate on daily running of the administrative, services and maintenance requests of Mahallah.


Message from the Principal of Mahallah Ummu Kalthum

Asst. Prof. Dr. Intan Azura Shahdan

Mahallah (Arabic for place) Ummu Kalthum was opened in 2013 and is a university residential college owned and operated by the Development Division, IIUM. At the moment, our impact and functions are supported by 9 staff members including academic, science officer and administrative staff.

Ummu Kalthum provides accommodation for female students, both undergraduate and postgraduates alike.  At the moment, Ummu Kalthum does not have facilities to accommodate students with family.

Essential institutional aspects of life at Ummu Kalthum such as the spiritual support, sports, leisure activities and academic assistance are made available to all student residents in keeping with the mission of the Ummu Kalthum as a homely, convenient and relaxing university residential college. The students themselves play a vital role in organising social, sporting and cultural activities that add so much fun, variety, excitement and enrichment to life at Ummu Kalthum.

Our hope is that when students leave IIUM that they do so having been provided with all the possible support and opportunities to have enhanced their personal and academic experience, as well as their spiritual and leadership qualities, ensuring that the combined residential college and University experience is a memorable and meaningful one.


To facilitate development of students abilities through management of quality services and co-curricular activities.
