In 1981, Brother Zafar Kureshi believed all Muslim communities have the obligation to provide their children with the necessary education to help develop their Muslim identity and strong Islamic character and decided to put this to action. With this goal in mind, Brother Kureshi set out to establish an Islamic Weekend School for this neighboring community. It began as small classes held once a week in different teachers' houses. Today, we are a well established Sunday school with an entire staff run solely on volunteers contributing their time and effort for the betterment of the community. May Allah (SWT) reward Brother Kureshi for all his contributions.
Our objective of our Sunday school is to teach students a curriculum covering three essential areas on Islamic study, practice and history.
Since the inception of this Islamic weekend school, many individuals have selflessly contributed their time and effort for the betterment of the community. We consider all our former principals as vital pillars to this weekend school. Without their dedication for the betterment of this school, we would not be able to work towards our goal for providing the children of this community with the adequate knowledge needed to develop a strong Muslim identity May Allah (SWT) reward them for their valuable contributions.
