Islamic History Syllabus

This subject is often taught using stories for the children. At a young age, the children enjoy listening to stories and pick up a lot of information from them. Therefore this is used in association with other activities to help the children remember the main points of the stories.

As the children progress, they not only cover the basics of the Imams and the Prophets, but also analyse the situation at the time of each of these.  The social context provides n insight into the reasons for the actions of the Prophet and Imams.

At a more senior level, the children also look into the spread of Islam into areas such as Spain as well as the way in which Islam has played such a vital role in the development of Science, Art and Mathematics.
