Aim of the School

Al Noor “The Light” Aberdeen Islamic School was established in 1984 to fulfill the need of Islamic education for the Muslim Children in Aberdeen.The school has been run and assisted by a group of committed sisters and thus providing a stable foundation of Islamic education for the children and is not in any way neither a profitable nor a commercial entity. The school that operates only over the weekends (Saturdays and Sundays) had always been running the classes in the Spital Mosque since its establishment.

The aim of the school is to instill in the child the love of Qur’an and Sunnah. This is implemented through a curriculum that includes a basic understanding and recitation of Quran with Tajweed rules (progress depends upon the regular practice at home), knowing the Creator through his beautiful names, Imaan, basic duties of a Muslim, and a basic knowledge on Seerah, Aqeedah, Adaab, Fiqh, and Hadith. The teaching methodology involves learning through fun and colouring in younger grades and in higher grades by preparing projects on various topics. The school follows an established syllabus, with committed teachers who keep continuous communication with the parents throughout the year. Other activities include Eid party, Quran competition, and annual award ceremony.
