Welcome to the ICUC Al-Mishkat Supplementary School
In our continuous effort to serve the Muslim community in Union County and its surrounding
counties of the State of New Jersey, The Islamic Center of Union County is pleased
to announce Al-Mishkat Supplementary School. We are looking forward to instructing
your children and providing a nurturing environment where they can obtain the knowledge
necessary to become the future leaders. We here at the ICUC believe that an Islamic
Education is comprehensive consisting of Quran, Islamic Studies, and Arabic. It with
the knowledge of Arabic, the beautiful language of our holy book, which your children
will be better, equipped to study the Quran. Equally important, it is with the knowledge
of Islamic Studies that your children will be given the proper tools to implement
the teachings of the Quran into their everyday lives becoming model Muslim citizens.
After much research into the curriculum and methods utilized by neighboring weekend
schools, we are confident that Al-Mishkat will bring your child the best possible
Islamic Education. Al-Mishkat Supplementary School will be a place run by a team
of qualified and eager administrators and top-notch teachers with years of experience
and patience. It was with Allah’s will that we were able to start this institution
of learning and it is with your commitment and dedication that we will continue it
for many years to come inshAllah.
Goals and Purpose:
Allah says in the Holy Quran “Verily, We have sent it down as an Arabic Qur'an
in order that you may understand” (Surah Yusuf, Ayah 2). As a consequence, one of
our main goals is to teach the children the beautiful Arabic language, as it is the
language of the Quran. It is not enough for us to simply teach the children Arabic,
but we will take it upon ourselves to relay to them the significance of learning
this blessed language.
To provide the children enrolled with an education consistent with the Quran and
the teachings of Sunnah and to inspire the children to lead an Islamic way of life.
To provide the children with the necessary tools to undertake the noble act of
memorizing the Quran. It is our firm belief that with the Quran in our hearts and
constantly on our tongues, we are within Allah’s refuge and protection.
With the knowledge that our children are the most important of our assets, it will
be our objective to prepare them to be future leaders.
After all, the future of Islam depends on the time and efforts we spend in educating
and nurturing our children.
