Community based Sunday school - Coming Soon
This program will be based on traditional Islamic knowledge that is taught by a qualified instructor, and has a chain of narration back to the beloved Prophet ﷺ
These sessions with bring together a holistic approach to learning for the whole community with the emphasis on enriching the family learning experience. However the program is open to all families with/without children, single brothers and sisters, the seniors of our community.
