Our Goals

Madinah College is an institute that offers a range of courses, training and workshops in Arabic language and Islamic sciences to provide a much-needed service for Muslims in Britain. 

 

Goals

The college is committed to a number of long-term aims that will result in positive outcomes for both individuals and society at large. It seeks:

  • To promote the learning of Arabic as a second language, so that more Muslims become skilled and proficient Arabic readers, writers and speakers.
  • To instil a sound understanding of Islam, along with the ability to practice confidently in contemporary society.
  • To spread the message of Islam to non-Muslims in an educational and supportive environment.
  • To provide the necessary tools for parents, children and young adults to be able to fulfil their Islamic obligations and civic responsibilities.
  • To produce a generation of imams who act as effective community leaders and who call others to Islam with clarity and wisdom.
  • To combat the twin enemies of religious extremism and anti-Muslim rhetoric with moderate Islam and the promotion of social cohesion.

 

Objectives

The institute is pragmatic in its approach to serving the educational needs of the Muslim community in London. Its numerous ambitions will therefore be accomplished through the delivery of a range of courses, programmes and services, including:

  • An Arabic Language Centre, which offers Arabic language daytime, evening and weekend courses for adults and children in Classical Arabic, Modern Standard Arabic and Tajweed for students at all levels.
  • An Arabic Saturday School for young learners (teenagers)
  • The creation of partnerships with local educational bodies to increase the resources available for institutions that aim to facilitate the development of Arabic as a second language.
  • An Islamic Studies Centre which delivers structured daytime, evening and weekend courses for adults and children in Tawheed, Tafsir, Hadith, Fiqh and Seerah for beginner, intermediate and advanced-level students.
  • A diploma course which trains Muslims to become Imams who will go on to deliver social services in UK hospitals, prisons and mosques etc.
  • The creation of partnerships with local educational bodies to increase the resources available for institutions that aim to facilitate the development of Arabic as a second language.
