The British Muslim School is dedicated to providing the full meaning of education by offering an opportunity to study, comprehensively & critically, the syllabus of a classical education in the Islamic sciences sensitively adapted for our time. We aim to provide opportunity for the young generation to meet the potential and fulfil their needs in Islamic studies.
We believe, the basic function of education is to equip the young people with the skill and knowledge that will enable them to play a significant role in the world. Our aim to expand their ability and for them to become qualified Islamic scholars in the wider field of Islam. Hence, the pupils of BMS will embark on an A’lim Course (Islamic Sciences) after completing their GCSEs.
Our Hifz class, dedicated to the memorisation of the noble Quran, employs the traditional style of committing surahs to memory until the pupil has memorised the whole Quran. We have a teacher with years of experience under whose tutelage pupils will become Huffaz Insha Allah. In addition to this the teacher has excellent qira’at in the proper method of Tajweed recitation, and therefore children learn with clarity of right pronunciation of the Quran.
He will be given a crown of honour and a garment of honour to wear. It was narrated from Abu Hurayrah that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The Qur’aan will come on the Day of Resurrection and will say, ‘O Lord, adorn him.’ So he will be given a crown of honour to wear. Then it will say, ‘O Lord, give him more.’ So he will be given a garment of honour.’ Then it will say, ‘O Lord, be pleased with him.’ So Allaah will be pleased with him. Then it will be said to him, ‘Recite and advance in status, and for each verse you will gain one more hasanah (reward for good deed).”- Tirmidhi, 2915.
InshaAllah , we have an affective routine and statistic plans in place to help our pupils in order for them to achieve their potential and become a Hafiz. For instance: If a pupil memorises 10 ayes each day only in the Academic year he will memorise the noble Quran in 3 years and 5 months. If a pupil memorises 3 ayes each day he will memorise the noble Quran in 5 years 10 months and 13days.
