We are looking forward to the holy month of Ramadan. The ninth month of the Islamic Lunar Calendar.

Our Special Character

0ur Islamic Special Character is the foundation on which drives our curriculum, teaching and learning and the teaching of Islam. It is the path guiding students on the journey of faith, knowledge, and personal growth. Rooted in the principles and teachings of Islam, our special character serves as the foundation upon which our educational institution is built.

 

قال تعالى: “وَمَنْ أَحْسَنُ قَوْلًا مِّمَّن دَعَا إِلَى اللَّهِ وَعَمِلَ صَالِحًا وَقَالَ إِنَّنِي مِنَ الْمُسْلِمِينَ”.
And who is fairer in speech than he who calls to Allah and acts righteously and says: ‘I am a Muslim’? *36 (41:33)

 

At the heart of our Islamic Special Character lies the belief in the oneness of Allah (SWT), the Merciful and Compassionate. We foster an environment that encourages students to develop a deep understanding of our Creator, nurturing their spiritual connection and strengthening their bond with Islam. Through regular prayer, recitation of the Qur’an, and learning about the life and teachings of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), students are encouraged to embrace their faith and embody its values in their daily lives.

 

 قال تعالى: “قُلْ إِنَّ صَلَاتِي وَنُسُكِي وَمَحْيَايَ وَمَمَاتِي لِلَّهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِين* لَا شَرِيكَ لَهُ ۖ وَبِذَٰلِكَ أُمِرْتُ وَأَنَا أَوَّلُ الْمُسْلِمِينَ“.
Say, “Indeed, my prayer, my rites of sacrifice, my living and my dying are for Allah, Lord of the world. (6:162)

 

Furthermore, our Islamic Special Character instils a strong sense of morality and ethical conduct within our students. They are taught to exemplify virtues such as kindness, honesty, integrity, and respect for others. Emphasizing the importance of empathy and compassion, we aim to cultivate a generation that not only excels academically but also contributes positively to society, upholding the principles of justice, fairness, and equality.
