The Weekend Learning Islamic Studies books are based on a comprehensive 12-year curriculum. The curriculum contains broad aspects of Islam based on the Qur’an and authentic hadeeth. The topics in the curriculum are laid out in a systematic manner to suit the teaching needs of a weekend Islamic school. Topics are selected based on the age, grade, and learning levels of each grade. Some topics are covered in multiple grades to add different perspectives, details, and additional emphasis. The teachers and director of the school will find continuity in the curriculum as it unfolds year to year. Teachers will know how much each student will learn year to year, and how much they will have learned at the end when they graduate from the school.
All Weekend Learning Islamic Studies books have age and grade-appropriate lessons. The length and depth of each lesson and sentences in the lessons are age and grade-appropriate. The lessons are tailored for 50-60 minute classes. Students in all grades will love the simple and child-friendly language and sentences in the books. The language of the lessons and the treatment of the subjects are made from the children’s perspective. Even the English spelling of Arabic words is age-appropriate. The books do not simply disseminate knowledge, but make it relevant to the student’s life and their world. The lessons do not use a lecturing tone, but engage the students in a respectful discussion.
