The Islamic studies program aims to instill the understanding and practice of our Shia belief systems. The belief in one God (Tawheed ), the understanding of the lives of the Prophets and Imams and character building (Akhlaq) form the basis of the curriculum.
The rules and practice of Salaat are emphasized at every grade. Practical rules of Taharat and Najasat are taught at the appropriate age groups. Practical lessons are derived from the lives of our prophets and Imams in order to integrate these teachings into our daily lives. It is important that students are able to identify themselves as good practicing Muslims in the multi-cultural mosaic of Canada.
During the holy months of Muharram and Ramadhan special programs are instituted at every grade level to help students learn and appreciate the value of these occasions. Practical assignments are given throughout the year to highlight the teachings of Quran and the sayings of the Imams. Using these important sources of guidance, the higher-grade students are taught to evaluate their actions.
