What is iSyllabus for Schools?

iSyllabus for Schools is an Islamic studies curriculum for children aged 10 to 16. Our bespoke teaching materials raise the bar in terms of quality. We have produced a holistic set of resources for the whole Muslim community. Our informative Islamic studies resources are not just for young Muslims, rather they provide a simple and clear insight into the Islamic faith for all.

iSyllabus for Schools has been thoughtfully devised to cater for the needs of all Muslim children, whether they are home-schooled, attend a mosque or madrasa, attend a Muslim school, are members of a youth group or attend a weekend Islamic school. In addition to the workbooks and student journals which include worksheets, we have developed supporting material, including lesson plans, presentations , class tests, end of year exams with mark schemes. All our material has been developed to provide Muslim educators with everything they need to teach their class.

What makes iSyllabus for Schools relevant?

The iSyllabus for Schools Workbooks and supporting material have been produced with the needs and demands of modern societies in mind while at the same time keeping the rigors of traditional Islamic teachings at its core.

Young Muslims face challenges daily in terms of both their belief and understanding of faith. These Workbooks are focused on providing material that encourages students to think deeply about their faith, and to develop the ability to firstly understand and then, if required, to articulate and explain their beliefs.

The Workbooks and Student Journals encourage students to incorporate their Islamic faith into their day-to-day lives and to develop into strong and confident young Muslims who are clear about their place in society.

What do the iSyllabus for Schools Workbooks and Student Journals cover?

Our set of five full-colour and easy-to-use Workbooks, with associated supporting material, cover a complete five-year Islamic Studies curriculum. Our materials are based on Bloom’s Taxonomy and each lesson has varied National Curriculum Levels. These are a set of eight bands set by the Department for Education in the UK which are used to measure a child’s progress against other students of the same age.

The first Workbook introduces various topics in Islam, which are elaborated on in more depth and details in the further Workbooks. The Schemes of Work give a more detailed description of every lesson.
Student Journals include a set of Worksheets and Handouts for every lesson to help support learning in conjunction with the Workbooks. These resources are used by educators to enable students through these exercises to reinforce and review lesson content.

The Workbooks provide a broad and inclusive understanding of Sunni Islam, remaining non-sectarian throughout. They teach young Muslims to be articulate and confident in the core values of their faith. The Workbooks, Journals and associated material have been carefully reviewed and edited by Sunni scholars.

Q7. Is there anything controversial in the Workbooks?

We have kept all of our material neutral and balanced. Any possibly divisive issues have been reviewed and presented in a way that avoids confusion, leaving pupils with a clear understanding of Islam. Importantly, this allows teachers and Imams a degree of flexibility when teaching the material so as to introduce nuances in jurisprudence and creed that they may deem useful for their own pupils.

Q8. How does iSyllabus for Schools compare to other school books?

Our Workbooks are in line with the required statutory standards in schooling. Our writers and editors used Bloom’s taxonomy to structure Workbook content, curriculum learning objectives, assessments and activities.

The national curriculum was continuously consulted, with particular focus on Citizenship, PSHCE, Religious Studies, and other subject areas which help develop the moral and social aspects of a student’s learning experience. Our team has worked hard to ensure that all the content is true to the teachings of Islam, while at the same time taking note of the growing challenges offered by statutory and cultural trends affecting the Muslim community living in the West.
