Same level of education
When it comes to education, both public and Islamic schools provide the same educational program. Hence, you do not have to worry about missing out on education; your kids will be learning a good academic program just like in public schools. One that will teach them everything required to be prepared for any next step in education.
Learning to read the Holy Qur’an
Fortunately, Islamic schools put a major focus on teaching the Holy Qur’an. Something which they can do on behalf of you. Teaching the Holy Qur’an is our responsibility as parents. Our kids should learn how to read and understand the Qur’an, because it’s the first and most important guidance for Muslims’ life. If they learned and build their fundamentals based on the Qur’an, you can be quite sure that your kids will turn into ethical and decent people when grown up.
Learning Arabic Language
One of the downsides of living in western countries is that our kids tend to speak better English than Arabic, and in some cases Arabic might be totally neglected. Public schools do not offer Arabic language classes at all, therefore the opportunity to learn our home-country language is not obtainable. On the other hand, giving private Arabic lessons might be extremely costly and might not be enough to yield a good base of the language. While in Islamic schools, long time and efforts are devoted to learning Arabic, where your kids can easily master.
Learning basic Islamic values
One of the valuable benefits of Islamic schools, is that your kids get exposed to Islamic knowledge. They get to learn more about their religion and its values. They get to learn Hadith, Dua’a, and Quran recitation and explanation. By naturally forcing them to learn about their religion in school, will prevent you the headache of finding a private teacher do so at an extra time and effort from your kids.
