About Us

“He (Allah Ta’ala) gives wisdom to whom He wills, and whoever is given wisdom is certainly given a lot of good.” (Qur’ãn 2:269)


A broad and balanced programme of study is an essential requirement for the development of every individual in society.

‘The aim (of education) must be the training of independently acting and thinking individuals who, however, see in the service to the community their highest life problem.’

Albert Einstein

In ignorance lies deterioration of community and individual values, aspirations, productivity and contribution.

A study of Islamic history will reveal championship of personal, social and intellectual development and leadership.
