About Our Workbooks
All of our Workbooks have 30 lessons, which are divided into four Modules: Islam, Imaan, Ihsan and Living Islam.
These Modules are based on the Hadith of Jibreel (a) when the Angel asked the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) the answers to the questions:
What is Islam? What is Imaan? What is Ihsan?
The first Module in every Workbook covers topics related to Islam: the five pillars. The second Module covers Imaan: the articles of faith. The third covers Ihsan: developing personal Islamic manners, values, and morals. The last Module covers Living Islam: the role of Muslims within their own families, communities and society. The topics covered in the Modules are all age-appropriate, in other words the lessons match a student’s progression in terms of learning and development over the five years.
This section covers topics related to the five pillars in Islam, namely, Shahadah, the declaration of faith stating that there is no god but God and that Muhammad (pbuh) is His Messenger; Salah or prayer; Zakah or charity; Sawm or fasting in Ramadan; and Hajj, the pilgrimage to the House of God in Makkah. The lessons in this section cover everything that students require to practice their faith.
This module includes methods of performing prayers and essential duas or supplications which students are encouraged to learn.
The primary teachings of Islam are covered in such a comprehensive manner that students who study these Workbooks are left with a greater knowledge of the main principles of their religion.
In every Workbook the second section has lessons related to Imaan, or Belief.
The articles of faith, or Muslim beliefs, covered in this Module relate to belief and understanding of Allah or God, His Angels, His Books with focus on the Qur'an, Hadith and Sunnah, Risalah or Prophethood, the Akhirah or the Afterlife, the Day of Judgement, Heaven and Hell, and belief in Qadar, divine destiny.
This section expands on a student's broader understanding of the articles of faith. The topics in the Imaan Modules cover all the aspects of belief in greater detail and clarity, allowing students to strengthen understanding of their own beliefs within the context of their religion.
This Module focuses on the ways that Muslims develop their Ihsan, which means 'perfection' or 'excellence' in Arabic.
These lessons teach Muslims how to improve themselves and their character in everything that they do. These lessons are based on the Prophet’s (pbuh) reply:
“Worship God as if you see Him, and if you do not see Him, He nevertheless Sees you.”
In other words, perfecting one's good character, morals, manners, standards of behaviour, appearance and etiquette, are all part of one's Ihsan. The lessons in these Modules encourage the improvement of excellence in every aspect of a student's life by focusing on personal development.
This section covers the role of Muslims within their own families, communities and societies in which they live.
It also covers the duties and responsibilities of being part of the Ummah, the global Muslim community. Additionally, lessons in this section also look at the Shariah or Islamic law, Birth, Marriage and Death in Islam and the Life of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).
Improving one's relationship with others, living as a part of the community and making a positive impact on society is the culmination of learning about Islam, understanding Imaan, and developing Ihsan.
The Living Islam Module in each Workbook develops a student’s ability to interact with their surroundings. The importance of the lessons and teachings contained within this section cannot be understated, especially in today’s society where young Muslims are continuously in the spotlight.
