Philosophy of ISP

We focus on character because building it is the crux of our faith as – Prophet Muhammad said”……
“Verily, the best people in Islam are those with the best character” (Musnad Ahmad)

– We don’t teach Arabic as a language except whatever is required to understand obligatory Islamic teachings and practices.

We don’t teach controversial fiqh (jurisprudence) related issues except what is generally required for day-to-day practices without imposing one opinion over the other.

Students and parents are free to choose their school-of-thought as long as it has sanction in the Quran & Sunnah. We strongly believe that disagreeing with someone’s opinion does not give anyone the right to be disrespectful to others. This is why disrespecting other people especially people of knowledge, scholars or different sects, faiths, etc. is highly discouraged. The objective of the Islamic Studies Program is not to make the students scholars of Islam. We only endeavor to teach and nurture our students to have the best possible character.
