Learn to Teach, Teach to Learn
Working alongside The Open School to educate teenagers
ABOUT THE TEACHERS
All of our teachers have studied with The Open School for Arabic and Islamic Studies (OSAIS) and have completed or are going through the teacher training process. Some of our teachers will also be qualified Maulanas or Imams. However, all teachers will continually be trained and assessed to ensure high standards are always met.
OSAIS has taught Arabic and Islamic Studies to students above the age of 16 since 1994 and has concentrated on developing its ‘learn to teach, teach to learn’ method. OSAIS works to see its students adopt the noble way (Sunnat) of our beloved prophet (Sall-Allahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) and the practice of his companions (Radiy-Allahu ‘Anhum).
The Azhari Madrasat aims to bring this vision to a younger audience and provide a place for children/youngsters to learn and develop the concept of “learn to teach, teach to learn” within their hearts. Through this we aim to develop their attitudes, skills and knowledge in a way which will benefit themselves, their families and the community.
Students at Azhari Madrasat will learn various Islamic sciences and will be trained to teach all the subjects they study through an extensive and challenging teacher training process. The Azhari Madrasat will develop the literary knowledge students are taught into practical application through various projects, events and activities.
With the Tawfeeq of Allah, we will support our students during the learning process and after graduation to become confident, articulate and dynamic seekers of ‘Ilm. We pray that every Muslim will act upon what they learn and pass what they have learnt on to others. Ameen.
Over the course of the 4-year Diploma in Islamic Studies, students will cover subjects including:
- Hifth, Tilawat (recitation) and Tajweed (rules of recitation) of The Holy Qur’aan
- Tafseer (commentary/meanings) of The Holy Qur’aan
- The Seerat of Rasool Allah (Sall-Allahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam)
- “The Forty Hadeeth” and “Riyad Al Saliheen” Hadeeth collections of Imam Al-Nawawi (r)
- The Arabic Language: Quranic and Modern Standard Arabic
- Fiqh (Jurisprudence): The Four Mathhabs (Schools of Thought) of Ahl Al Sunnat Wal Jamaa'at
- ‘Aqeedat (beliefs) of Ahl Al Sunnat Wal Jamaa’at with some comparative studies
- Introduction to Ilm Al Fadha’il and Adaab (Science of Virtues and Etiquette)
- Dua and Thikr: Masnoon Duas that cover acts during the night and the day.
EXTRA CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES
We believe in a holistic approach when it comes to the education of young Muslims. We run regular programs over the weekends for tuition and other forms of education including sports activities Alhamdulillah.
We offer day trips to places of interest like different museums and government buildings to broaden Madrasat students' understanding of the world around them. There are also weekends where subject-focused talks will take place regarding modern day issues or pressing matters in the Muslim community which parents will also be encouraged to attend. This ensures our students are well aware of the needs of the local community and learn about possible solutions or means of helping alongside their studies.
Our students will also have the opportunity to attend tuition sessions for KS3 and GCSE. Students will not only keep up with their academic studies but will excel in them and perform exceptionally well In Sha Allah.
