Madrasah Muhammad Leeds

At Madrasah Mohammad Leeds, it is our objective to provide healthy and rewarding learning environment for our Muslim students. The Madrasah is open on Saturdays and Sundays which is known as weekend Madrasah.

Muslim children growing in the UK are facing diverse challenges and conflicting pressure at Madrasah and in friend circles. They are constantly influenced by mainstream youth culture. It is difficult to isolate them from these influences and it is painful to let them sway into the mainstream. Excessive consumerism, peer pressure, media culture, Internet and technology confuse the youngsters’ mind about their ideal objective in life. However, parent can do only so much. We admit Madrasah have a responsibility to instil Islamic ideologies in the youths. Again, Madrasah can only do so much. It is tough job to help them balance their Islamic identity with their British identity. 

We do not want to stop trying. We hope Madrasah Muhammad will be able to help Muslims students appreciate and understand Islam – its rich heritage, principles, values and teachings. We hope the Madrasah will be able to provide stepping stone for the youngsters so that they understand and accept Islam as the chosen ‘way’ of their lives. Our success will be measured years later if these youth grow and say: “Thank you, you made a difference in our lives!”

Our request to the parents – Please invest in your child. They are innocent and precious!

The guide is designed to help Parents, Teachers and Students what to expect from the Madrasah and what the Madrasah expects from them.

Our Curriculum

The Madrasah follows a systematic and comprehensive curriculum. The objective of the curriculum is to provide a broad understanding of all aspects of Islam as envisaged in the Mission Statement. The teachers, student and parents will know the curriculum – thus, everybody will know what is being taught and what to expect from students at each grade and collectively from the entire program. The teachers will carefully follow the curriculum.

The curriculum includes:

  • Recitation of the Holy Quran with meaning and reflection.
  • Study of Hadith (Sayings of the Prophet Muhammad S.A.W)
  • Study of Aqeedah (Islamic Relief)
  • General Islamic Study
  • Guidance of Islamic Manners, Morals and Etiquette
  • Seerah

Our Class

Our classes are co- educational. Boys and Girls are separated in groups. In foundation classes, teachers determine if they can co- mingle in the class during learning activities. Placement of a student in Quran Recitation lessons may not follow the regular the Madrasah grades. Regardless of age of a student, based on her/ his ability in general may be placed at a higher or lower grade. The decision about search placement will be made the head teacher in consultation with the class teacher.

Our Teacher

The Teachers have had experiences of Islamic knowledge which makes them capable to educate our students to be become better Muslims. As well as speaking Swahili they speak English and Arabic. This is an advantage to our students to understand the lessons more in details.

Our Students

Admission is open to any students, male or female, irrespective of their immigration status. Since the main medium of instruction is English, the ability of students to understand and communicate in English is important. Students are placed in a grade commensurate with their age.
