 What is Islam? The purpose of life.


 
 About Islam.

Islam teaches us that this life is a life of worship. We are placed on this earth in order to worship Allah and obey His command. During this earthly life we are subjected to a series of trials. We have the option of enduring these trials and conforming to certain laws, and our reward will be great in the next life, or we may decline to endure these trials and choose to not conform to the law, then we will be made to regret it in the next life.  

Each person will be solely and completely responsible for their own final reward. We are also told that God has designed these laws to make this life a better, safer, and more tolerable one for us. If we elect to conform to them then we will see the result in this life even before moving on to the next.

We are told that the earthly life is a life of faith and work, and the next life is one of reward and no work. We have been placed on this earth to worship God, fast, pray, be industrious, good, kind, respectful, and a source of uprightness and morality. We are told that God has no need of our worship. Our worship can not increase the kingdom of God nor add to His power, however, it is in our best interests both in this life and the next that we do.

Unlike some other religions which claim that God entered in a covenant with a certain group of people and that this group is genetically better than all other human beings, or closer to God, Islam on the other hand teaches that no color, race, tribe, or lineage is better than any other. Islam teaches that all humans are equal in the sight of Allah and that the only thing that can distinguish them in His sight is their piety and worship.

"O humankind! Verily! We have created you from a male and female, and have made you nations and tribes that you may know one another. Verily! the noblest among you in the sight of Allah is the most God-fearing. Verily! Allah is The Knower, The Aware." The noble

Islam consists of three levels, each building upon the lower ones. They are:

 

  1.  Islam:

         •Testify that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is the messenger of  Allah
         • Establish the daily prayers
         • Pay Zakat (Obligatory charity due the poor)
         •Observe the fast of Ramadan
         • Perform pilgrimage to the
     
  2. Faith (Iman):
 To believe in Allaj
 To believe in His angels
 To believe in His Books (Scriptures)
To believe in His Messengers
To believe in the Day of Judgment
To believe in the Divine Decree (Divine fate) whether good or evil

Islam is built upon five major pillars. A Muslim is taught that anyone who dies observing these five basic pillars will enter heaven. As mentioned, they are:

 

  1. To bear witness that there is no entity worthy of worship except Allah(God) alone, and that Muhammad (pbuh) was His messenger. This establishes obedience to God Almighty alone.

  2. To perform five prescribed prayers to God every day according to a specific prescribed method and at specific prescribed times. This continually reminds us to bear God in mind in all actions, either before or after any given prayer.

  3. To pay two and a half percent (2.5%) of ones wealth to charity every year if their savings exceed a certain minimum level which isconsidered above the poverty level. (This is the basic concept, the actual calculation is a little more complex).

  4. To fast the month of Ramadhan (from the Islamic Lunar calendar) every year from sun rise until sunset. This involves not eating, drinking, or having marital relations, from sun rise until sun set.

  5.  To perform a pilgrimage to Makkah (in the Arabian Peninsula) once in a Muslim\\\'s lifetime if it is financially possible and their health permits. During this period, Muslims come from all over the world to join together for six days in a prescribed set of acts of worship. All Muslim men are mandated to wear the same garment which was designed to be very plain, simple, and cheap to obtain.

Mu\\\'ad ibn Jabal said: I said to Allah\\\'s Messenger (peace be upon him): Inform me about an act which would entitle me to enter into Paradise, and distance me from the Hell-Fire. He (the Prophet) said:

"You have asked me about a matter [which ostensibly appears to be] difficult but it is easy for those for whom Allah, the Exalted, has made it easy. Worship Allah and do not associate anything with him, establish prayer, pay the Zakat, observe the fast of Ramadhan and perform Hajj to the House (Ka\\\'aba)." (Narrated by Ahmed, al-Tirmathy, and ibn Majah)

AFTER SCHOOL CLUB INFORMATION:-



 

NEWS FLASH FOR THE COLD WINTER MONTHS-
Dear parents.
We would like to inform you that this is a final admission time for the extra after school reading clubs, we have opened them with native British and American teachers.
We understand the importance for reading, and some parents have very long work hours and cannot spend as much time as they would like at home following up with their child/ren....

The reading clubs are run daily after school and held in our school library and multimedia lab.. The places are very limited and it will be a first come first served basis. Any age can attend and the children will have a reading log and special program at their own pace and read to the teacher and be taught how to read at their own pace. There will be 5 different native teachers teaching your child/ren to read so they can offer their wide and varied skills in many different ways. Each teacher has her own way and gift a great teacher is like a burning candle that sets a light on their path ahead in life. There will be 2 native teachers teaching each session.

The teachers will be as follows.
Saturday - Native Pure American teachers.
Sunday- Pure British Native teachers.
Monday- Pure Canadian native teachers.
Tuesday -British/Scottish native teachers.
Wednesday - Pure Native Canadian /Aussie teachers.
Master’s degree in English - evaluator of the week’s progress. This teacher will attend in every sessison, supervising and recording the childs progress.


The reading clubs will give the student a very easy one to one creative reading experience. The child will have the chance to log out books at their age range from the library and read one to one with their teacher. For those children whom cannot read at all the teacher will do her level next to teach the child at his or her pace to read using the jolly phonics scheme and smart board interactive programs for reading. The library hosts one of our smart boards and interactive lessons may be in use to give the child the best possible experience and a head start. As the cold winter months are upon us if parents are going to be late in pick up this gives both the student and parents a good option. The child will remain in a warm supervised environment having fun and learning to read. The clubs have conditions and rules should be applied.


If you feel this program may help your child, please feel free to contact the admissions office on 0530208907 / 01 4649666 where the dedicated admissions team would be happy to answer any questions on this matter. You may enrol for this at any time limited places are available. Thank you
