At the heart of Al-Madinah School is the Quranic and Islamic Studies department, supported by a team of experienced and dedicated members of staff. Our commitment to Islam in the school is reflected by the fact that each week, six lessons will be dedicated to Islamic, Quranic and Arabic Studies in the secondary school along with numerous lessons in the primary school. In this programme, great attention and effort will be geared to subject areas such as Quranic reading with the correct pronunciations (Tajwid), Quranic translation and commentary (Tafsir) and the memorisation of the Quran (Hifz). In addition to this we also teach Islamic Jurisprudence (Fiqh), the flawless biography (Sira) of Prophet Muhammed (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), Islamic history, Islamic beliefs (Aqidah) and Islamic morality (Akhlaq).
We ensure that Islamic Studies is taught outside the classroom and not just in it. Daily morning Duas, daily prayers (Salah), Jum’a and weekly religious assemblies are just some of the ways pupils are constantly reminded to focus on their religious duties and responsibilities, in addition to their academic goals.
At Al-Madinah School, Islamic Studies, Quranic Studies, prayers, PE and lunch are separate for boys and girls at all times. In short, the teachings of Islam are not only discussed, but openly promoted and implemented throughout the school.
