The syllabus used for the An-Nakhlah Academy has been designed and written by us. Two separate course booklets running from levels 1 to 10 have been produced for our students. Children between the ages of 4-9 will study the “Workbook” booklets, whilst those between the ages of 10-15 are taught through the “Coursenotes” booklets. Whilst both booklets incorporate similar subjects and sciences throughout its levels, the “Coursenotes” booklets are designed for a more advanced study and discussion of its content, whereas the “Workbook” booklets are heavily based on activities, arts and crafts and lessons through stories and incidents.
Both booklets consist of a number of subjects including Quran, Arabic, Tafseer, Fiqh, Seerah, Aqeedah, Hadith, Du’as and Islamic morals and etiquettes. However, our five core sciences designed to educate our students are Aqeedah, Fiqh, Hadith, Seerah and Stories of the Prophets.
Our Aqeedah classes are designed to teach our students core principles of Islam, the pillars or Islam and Eeman as well as core, fundamental principles of Tawhid, worship and its nullifiers. Moreover, students will be taught the names and meanings of Allah and how to apply them in their lives. “Coursenotes” students will partake in numerous discussions and debates proving the existence of Allah, evidences that Muhammad ﷺ is His Messenger and evidences that Islam is the religion of truth. Our goal through our Aqeedah classes is to ensure that every student is absolutely certain that Islam is the only path to Paradise, and that all possible doubts they may have or are taught in schools are correctly and appropriately dismantled.
Fiqh is the second core science all students study at An-Nakhlah Academy. Students will be taught everything a Muslim is required to know to worship Allah and live the life of this world in the pleasure of Allah. Topics covered will include but are not limited to:
