The Madrasa al-Firdaws (مدرسة الفردوس), literally meaning the "Paradise School", is a 13th-century educational complex located southwest of Bab al-Maqam in Aleppo, Syria and consists of a madrasa, mausoleum and other functional spaces. It was built by the queen regent Dayfa Khatun between 1235-36, in the suburb of Aleppo, some distance outside the medieval city walls of Aleppo in the neighborhood known as al-Maqamat.
