9th grade

Islamic Studies Curriculum​

We know that Islam places a great emphasis on education as a whole. We are honored to be a part of this noble cause through the development and compilation of a 7-12 grade curriculum for Islamic Studies and Qurʾān, along with life skills and contemporary issues related to our daily lives. Islam is a complete way of life and integrating school curriculum is an important facet for the youth of today.
Your generous donation will support the work underway for the 7-12 grade curriculum. The focus is on the four core subjects: ʿaqāʾid, fiqh, history, and akhlāq. InshāʾAllāh, we hope to further develop the fifth core subject, Qurʾān, in areas such as recitation, tajwīd, mafāhīm (understanding), and tafsīr with deeper understanding.
