About Us

Our Ideology

Al-Mu’minah School is an Islamic School; born out of the ideology that only worldly academic education is not sufficient for our ultimate success. Ultimate success for a believer is to be successful in the Hereafter.

The past century has seen an increasing dichotomy emerging between religious education and worldly academic education. On one hand we have the Madressas that teach only the Islamic theology and on the other hand we have the academic schools that teach only the ‘worldly’ curriculum. Because of this dichotomy, some religious people look at worldly education as an evil. However, this dichotomy does not exist in the teachings of the Qur’an and the Sunnah which encourage us to ponder on the things around us and seek all ‘beneficial knowledge.’
 
 
We have reached a stage where an average Muslim, educated in pure worldly academics, is unable to understand Islam because the Islamic theologians, who impart the Islamic teachings, are not educated in the Sciences and Mathematics and therefore, are unable to satisfactorily answer with logic and reasoning, the questions asked by Muslims educated in academics only.
 
We have come to a point where the majority of Muslims are unaware about the teachings of Islam. It is surprising that, even though Qur’an is the most read book in the world, it is the least understood book.

Islam has taught its followers to seek all ‘beneficial knowledge.’ Hence giving only religious education also does not suffice. Our aim is to provide both Islamic and 'worldly' academic knowledge to our students. We will strive to nurture girls of upright character and high academic caliber who will be Muslims in the truest sense of the world In sha Allah.
