Online Islamic Sessions for Young Leaners

The Dawn Foundation

The Launch Of Islamic Enlightenment Online Courses | PROMO

Today, online courses are just as beneficial as courses you would take in a classroom. The main concept of online courses is to provide a professional alternative and flexibility in learning — at your own comfort, at your own pace and at anywhere. The other key benefit being, that your child is at a safe distance when learning to give you that reassurance you so need in this day and age.

The Need

Young families living in the west are eager to ensure that their children are being enriched with the true message of the Ahlulbayt (as). Far too often we see children losing touch with their faith, leaving parents hopeless of ensuring their children remain connected with their beliefs.

With this in mind, we have devised a systemised online educational platform in english, which is rooted in the core Islamic principles and designed specifically for children between the ages of 10-16.

These supplementary courses will be held virtually in an online class environment on a weekly basis throughout the academic school year. The online courses will be led by experienced teachers, who will be supported and supervised by leading Islamic scholars. The content will be deeply rooted in the vast knowledge provided to us by the Quran and the Ahlulbayt (as). We believe that we can also use this platform to provide students with the basic life skills they need to prepare them for the world ahead.

We aspire to create an environment for students where they can learn, bond and build long lasting friendships.
