Al-Muqaddamiyah Madrasa (Arabic: المدرسة المقدمية‎) is a madrasah complex located in the Jallum district in the Khan al-Tutun alley of the Ancient city of Aleppo, Syria. The madrasa was originally a church before 1123. It was converted to a mosque by the judge Ibn-Khashab then into a madrasa in 1168 by Izz Eddin Abdal Malek al-Muqadam during Nur al-Din's reign. It is the oldest madrasa still remaining in Aleppo.

The madrasa is formed by a main prayer hall and rooms on its west side. The lintel on the door carries the oldest known Naskhi inscription in Aleppo.[1]
