Evening Maktab

Evening Maktab Classes

Traditional evening maktab classes are designed to teach children basic Islamic beliefs, practices, etiquettes, and values.

The maktab system is vital for the dissemination of essential Islamic knowledge at a primary level. It is designed to nurture a deep spirit of faith, love, and excellence in the hearts of children, allowing them to grow up with a greater sense of confidence as responsible, caring, upright Muslims, insha-Allah.

We are pleased to announce that Alqalam Islamic Community Center is endeavouring to re-establish regular evening maktab classes for the children within our local community.

Insha-Allah, the classes will be under the care of our Imam, Shaykh Aamir, starting in Fall, 2020.

Further information regarding the evening maktab classes will be provided here, bi ithnillah.
