COURSE CURRICULUM

 

The ultimate goal of the Tayba Islamic Studies Program is to give your children a firm foundation in Islamic Knowledge with a correct understanding and application of that knowledge throughout the rest of their lives. We aim to get children motivated and excited about the Deen, encouraging them explore their world through an Islamic lens, feel pride in their Islamic Identity, and gain a nearness and closeness to Allah that will bring them a sense of comfort and direction for the rest of their lives, in shaa Allah!

The Curriculum

The study programs at Tayba reflect our philosophy of Authenticity, Engagement & Exploration. With that in mind, we only utilize texts that adhere to the Quran and Sunnah. We strive to offer a well-rounded and generally universal course of study, avoiding issues of major debate or specificity. We believe this approach allows us to provide a strong foundation in Islamic knowledge to a greater number of Muslim families across the globe.

The Tayba Islamic Studies Curriculum has FIVE main areas of focus:

  • Aqeedah (Belief)
  • Ibaadah (Worship)
  • Akhlaaq (Behavior)
  • Seerah (Prophetic Biography)
  • Tareekh (History)

During each term students will explore these subjects at varying degrees. The content and level of detail is adjusted according to each class level, so that while students may be on the same track, learning the same concepts and information, the depth, detail, and delivery will be quite different dependent upon which class level they are at. As years progress, students will naturally be revisiting some of the same concepts and information, so that the early years give a basic foundation and later years offer a deeper understanding.

Texts & Resources

The primary text for Tayba Islamic Studies is the Safar Curriculum, produced by the Safar Academy in the UK. Though we are based in the US, we have found this curriculum to have a great balance of authentic sourcing, colorful and engaging imagery, and a well-organized educational plan from KG on up.

Safar’s curriculum centers around the principles and values of Islamic teachings, morals and etiquettes based on the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). This relates to our actions, morals, manners and how we deal with and respect people in addition to the environment around us. This ethos is embedded in the curriculum and the learning environment and can also be seen through the teaching methodology of praise, encouragement and reward staff having high standards and expectations of pupils; morally, spiritually and academically positive and caring staff-pupil relationships promotion of a positive learning environment.

You can learn more about the Safar Academy Ethos HERE.  Learn about the textbooks and workbooks we use HERE.

At Tayba, we aim to make our online classroom more interesting and exciting for students. Often we incorporate online videos and animations, graphics and illustrations, and other resources; in which case all materials are carefully reviewed by our Department Head to ensure adherence to our standards. Additionally we utilize a wide range of enrichment materials produced by Creative Motivations, a well-known Islamic Educational company in the US. Finally, we also produce many of our supplementary materials and online resources ourselves.

The primary goal of the Tayba Quranic Fluency Program is to provide your children with a solid foundation in reading and reciting Allah’s Book with accuracy and fluency. Our program is designed to be effective with absolute beginners, as well as more experienced students. Each student is given a video assessment at the beginning of their first term to ensure that they are placed in the fluency correct level. The instructor will start inexperienced students from the beginning (recognition and pronunciation of Arabic letters), and more experienced students will first review beginning lessons to correct any mistakes or bad habits from previous instruction, before moving on to more challenging material.
