Islamic Studies Overview

With the collaboration of educators and religious scholars, NUI has designed an Islamic Studies and Quran curricula that are both age-appropriate and apply the context of the time and place in which we live.  Students in their early years between ages 3-8 are introduced to the foundations of Islam and Stories of Prophets. The love of Allah and the Prophet are the focus of early learning. They learn salah and a series of duaa that help them build good character. As they begin upper elementary and middle school, students are guided by expert teachers and scholars to help them shape their understanding of their deen. Special seminars are embedded into the curriculum to help middle school students adjust to their developmental changes and learn Islamically appropriate akhlaaq and adaab. By high school, students dive deep into fiqh and aqeedah and are provided with the expertise of the NUI religious scholars to discuss contemporary issues. Our expert teachers cover topics such as seerah, purification of the heart, and marriage.
