About the Madrasah
The Islamic education of our next generation is of paramount importance. We are privileged and honoured to have the untainted message sent by Allah to mankind which was given to us and exemplified by the best human to walk this earth, the prophet Muhammed (ﷺ).
Every parent has the responsibility to ensure their child is given the correct guidance is able to practice their religion correctly. It is one of the constitutional aims of Islamic Centre Edgware to also facilitate in providing this education and so we have established our Madrasah to assist parents/guardians in educating their children to enable them to recite the Qur’ān with correct rules and pronunciation (tajweed); perform the ritual worship; have the correct Islamic manners (adāb and akhlāq); know the Islamic rules relating to everyday life; have a good general knowledge of Islamic history and laws.
Our vision is to have a high-quality madrasah which teaches Islam in practical terms in our modern world with a view to creating and nurturing the minds of our youth to empower them with knowledge and confidence about their beautiful religion.
The teaching is done via group classes and individual teaching and checking. Each class is taught through a defined syllabus with group lessons and thereafter each child is checked individually. Every student has and individual learning plan to develop that child and this concludes with end of year tests. These are used to evaluate the progress of the students and provide support where needed.
We have currently adopted the Safar Academy syllabus as a foundation to our Madrasah, including the Qāidah and Tajweed books, Du’ā books and Islamic Studies books.
To run effectively and efficiently, the Madrasah Management Committee has formulated special rules and regulations that must be accepted and adhered to by parents/guardians and students in order to be admitted and to remain in the madrasah. These rules indicate acceptable levels of behaviour, attendance and attainment. The madrasah reserves the right to amend existing rules or introduce new rules at any time.
The madrasah operates both weekdays and weekends. The weekday classes run from Monday to Thursday from 5pm to 7pm. The Weekend classes run on both Saturdays and Sundays from 11am to 1pm. All students are expected to comply with the uniform requirements adopted by the Madrasah.
We are proud to have teachers that take a great interest in the children’s education. Our teachers reflect the diversity of our students and amongst them are fluent in Arabic, Somali, Pushto and Urdu. All teachers are given training in the subjects they teach and additionally undergo safeguarding training and general health and safety training. Specific teachers are also trained in paediatric first aid.
