Weekend Islamic Studies in London
Understanding the Quran and the teachings of our beloved and final messenger, Muhammad (ﷺ) is a key aspect of our faith. It is with this that we are not only able to recite the Quran correctly but also relate to the message that our Creator, Allah, has provided for us. Alongside the knowledge taught, it is equally as important to put this into practise. At Fussilat Academy, we relate each Islamic Studies module to the students of today’s society.
What we teach
At our weekend Islamic school in London, we offer beginner, intermediate and advanced classes in Islamic Studies. Each topic is taught at an appropriate level for each student’s ability and age. The 3 topics covered are:
3. Stories of the Prophets
Aqeedah and Fiqh are taught weekly for 30 minutes each, with the story of a Prophet being taught every 2-3 weeks.
Aqeedah covers the basic core beliefs of our religion, the beliefs that distinguish us from other religions. Here, we cover the 6 articles of faith:
Prophets & Messengers
Qadr (Divine Decree)
Fiqh, jurisprudence, realtes to the day-to-day practical aspects of our religion which enable us to worship Allah in the manner He requires us to worship him. Through this, we learn the methods of each worship, their requirements and what would validate or invalidate them. We cover:
Zakah Sawm (Fasting)
Hajj & Ummrah
Stories of the Prophets
We all enjoy a good story, and there is none better than factual stories that Allah has mentioned in the Quran. We discuss each and every prophet, learning the lessons that Allah wants us to learn from each story as well understanding the relevance of these stories in the light of our own daily lives.
At the end of each term, all students will be assessed, allowing them to demonstrate what they have learnt to the teachers and their parents. With this, the teachers and students gain an insight as to the level that the student is working at, as well as which topics, if any, would need to be revisited in the following term.
The following highlights the exam types for each level
Beginner: Oral exam
Intermediate: Oral, practical and written exam
Advanced: Oral, practical and written exam
