Our Concept of Islamic Education
Universally accepted, Islamic Education has no segregation between “religious” and “secular” knowledge. It aims at developing the entire human aspects; physically, intellectually & spiritually. It up brings child on his/her nature (Fitrah) and educates him/her to play his roles as: the servant of God; His vicegerent; and as a responsible citizen of the country.
Our Concept of Curriculum
It is not limited to text books but it is a wide concept which covers the whole body of knowledge, pedagogy and learning process experienced by a student that have been planned formally and systematically according to the levels of students.
Need of Integrated Curriculum
“Islamic integrated curricula is essential in-developing every aspect of human potentials and producing a well-balanced being. The development of mental, physical, emotional, ethical and aesthetical aspects cannot be enhanced without the process of Islamic integration in the education system.” – Ghazali Basri (A Malaysian Educationalist).
The Islamic curriculum is based on Quran and Sunnah. We have Shariah board which approves the curriculum and train the teachers. The curriculum teaches basics of Islam. We don’t follow a particular Maslak (school of thought). We teach Unity of Ummah and to struggle for establishment of Islam in individuals and in collective life.

Al Hamdu Lillah, Ulema’s of various schools of thought (Maslak) have visited our school, examined our system and curriculum and appreciated our policy.
