"And we have certainly made the Quran easy for remembrance, so is there any who will remember?"
(Surah Al-Qamar: 54_17)
Masjid • Madrassah • Markaz
With Allah’s Will and Help, our Mission is to bring reputable Quranic (Hifz/Nazara) and Islamic Education (Aqaid/Fiqh) to our Youth, and at the same time provide them with excellent secular education in the fields of Science, Math, English, Islamic Social Studies and Qira, by utilizing State of the Art technology and resources. As of today the Madrassah is servicing more than 30 Muslim Kids who are becoming Guardians of the Holy Quran by becoming Hafiz. In conjunction with the Hifz Program the same Kids are receiving their secular education for their respective Grades in Mathematics, Science and English.
Masha’Allah in recent years we did some important upgrades to our Masjid and Madrassah, first being the replacement of the Roof which was in debilitating state and was deemed UNSAFE by Insurance Inspectors. Alhumdulillah after bringing the building up to Code, we were able to obtain Certificate of Use/Occupancy for the first time in 70 years!
Presently, we are diligently working towards getting our Madrassah APPROVED from New York State Board of Education. Insha’Allah this accomplishment will not only make IDE one of its kind in Islamic Education, but will also help us work Independently of other affiliations to conduct our Operations as we see appropriate for our children.
We will conduct New York State exams for our kids which will in essence RAISE the bar of the educational standard.
Alhamdulillah, Allah (SWT) has provided us with the great opportunity to provide service to His House and to help protect and teach His word to our Future Generations. We are humbled by this task, but we also remain much honored by the fact that our mission in this life is to carry out His Will.
