Our vision is echoed through our slogan ‘striving for excellence in education and piety’ because the pursuit for excellence is an ongoing one which is relevant to all stakeholders at London Islamic School. The governors, leaders and staff will continuously strive to provide the students, parents and community with an environment that inculcates ‘excellence in education and piety’ for everyone regardless of their ability, background, race or any other forms of inequality such that they can reach their full potential academically, socially, morally, physically, emotionally and spiritually.
We aim to produce the next generation of Islamic scholars (Ulama), protectors of Quran (Huffadth), professionals and inviters (Daes) who have a broad and balanced education in Islamic Theology and National Curriculum such that they are God conscious and productive British citizens who are able to make pioneering contribution to society in a way that promotes peace, harmony and tolerance.
To produce well rounded individuals, our objectives are built around the five branches of Islam which are Aqeedah (creed), Ibadah (worship), Akhlaaq (personal character), Mu’asharat (social relations) and Mu’amalat (formal interactions). As we believe by having an active focus on all these branches we can nurture our students to be well grounded Muslims who are proud of their identity as British Muslims.
- Aqeedah (creed): to build a strong understanding and foundation of Islamic creed/beliefs and nurture students with self-knowledge, self-esteem, self-wisdom and self-confidence, while having a deep appreciation of other beliefs, cultures, values and lifestyle choices.
- Ibadah (worship): to support students in building a love for God (Allah) and the prophets and develop spiritually in accordance with the noble Quran and Sunnah through deep Islamic knowledge (Ilm), invoking an attachment to worship and methods to purify the heart (Tazkiyah) in order to practice Islam with God consciousness and sincerity.
- Akhlaaq (personal character): to inculcate in each student an Islamic personality and character which encourages good morals, manners and gives them confidence so that they grow up to be balanced, well rounded, upright and pious individuals who are aware of etiquettes and behaviours within varied environments and communities.
- Mu’asharat (social interactions): to provide pupils with a wide range of experiences so they gain a broad and balanced education in a caring, safe and well-ordered environment to develop their academic skills and Islamic values with the capacity to understand, respect and work with all individuals in a way that promotes integration, tolerance and harmony between different communities to work together to build a better society.
- Mu’amalat (formal interactions): to provide pupils with a broad general knowledge of public institutions, services and to distinguish between right and wrong and respect the law in order that they become responsible and productive citizens who will make a positive contribution to society.
