Islam has defined the goal of education to be the development of Shakhsiyah Islamiyah, (the Islamic Character).
This is our goal, our work and our ethos. Over the past 10 years we have been working on and developing a 'Holistic Islamic Educational' framework to achieve this - The Shakhsiyah Model. We have also developed an extensive teacher education programme exploring Islamic philosophy of education and synthesizing classical Islamic pedagogy with modern techniques..
There are seven main elements to the Shakhsiyah Framework. Please click on the links below to find out more.
Our intention is that this model is able to produce persevering Islamic personalities for the challenges facing us living here in Britain in the 21st century.
Our approach is that the educational framework is derived from Islamic sources as opposed to adding Islam into existing education systems. It was with this approach that Muslims at the time of the great Islamic civilization were able to make immense achievements and advancements.
We seek to work with all members of the Muslim and wider communities who share our goals. We welcome you to contact us and participate in or make a donation towards this work.
Islamic Shakhsiyah Foundation runs the following:
Donations raised so far: £171,694 (updated: 03 December 2013)
'Islamic Shakhsiyah Foundation’ is in desperate need of raising funds up to around £350,000 within a few months. Please, for the sake of our childrens' future especially in countries where Islamic Educational Institutes are sparse, we urge you to donate as little (£1) or as much as you can, every penny counts right now. The children will lose a school otherwise and we a chance to make a difference. May Allah (SWT) Give you ever more reward in this life and the next for this Sadaqa-e-Jariya.
“Ramadan has come to you. (It is) a month of blessing, in which Allah (swt) covers you with blessing, for He sends down mercy, decreases sins and answers prayers …
… In it, Allah looks at your competition (in good deeds), and boasts about you to His angels. So show Allah goodness from yourselves.”
—The Prophet Mohammed (pbuh), as narrarated by Tabarani
Ramadan is a blessed month of reflection, prayer and fasting for Muslims. During the month, observers gain a better understanding of and appreciation for the suffering of needy people around the world. Ramadan also serves to remind Muslims of the importance of charity, and their obligation to be charitable during the month and all throughout the year.
