We are very lax in paying the Madrasah fees. We generally pay the school fees, give our children their pocket expenses, etc. The pocket expense is sometimes more than the fees. In fact if we are wealthy, we should pay on behalf of those kids that are unable to afford the Madrasah fees.


Ar-Raheem - The Most Merciful

Repeat ..... “الرحيم Allah Ta’ala is Most Merciful.” Our Allah Ta’ala is full of mercy.

·      Mummy has mercy for her baby. She won’t leave the baby to cry.

·      The mother cat has mercy for her baby kittens. She won’t leave them to die.

·      Now, if we put all the mercy of all the mothers of this world together, then our Allah’s mercy for us is still so much more.


Rules of the Maktab


  1. Attendance and punctuality is of utmost importance as absenteeism and late coming seriously retard the pupil’s progress as lessons cannot be repeated for one child due to limited time.


Advice for Parents

Respected Parent / Guardian

Assalaamu alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuhu

All praise is to Allah Ta’ala who has blessed us with Islaam and Imaan. May peace and salutations be in abundance upon our beloved Nabi b.

Allah Ta’ala declares in the Holy Qur’aan: ”O You who believe! Save yourself and your family from the fire of Jahannum whose fuel is mankind and stones!”


Muzaakarah for Maktab Asaatiza (Teachers)

  1. Punctuality: Try and be in the class at least 5 minutes before the class time commences. This will Insha Allah assist the pupils also to be punctual in class. The Ustaad /Apa should leave the class only once the period is over. If for some reason we have to arrive late or stay absent from class, phone your principal or Supervisor and inform him of your absence.


End of the Year Jalsa

1. The purpose and object of a jalsa is to;

  • Please Allah Ta’ala
  • Motivate the pupils by allowing them to participate and giving them prizes for outstanding achievements.
  • Pass on some message of Deen to the parents and others who will be attending the madrasah jalsa.

2. Preferably have the jalsa in the third term as having the jalsa in the fourth term affects the preparation of the final exams. Pupils start focussing more on jalsa items than on the final exams. On the last day of the fourth term, an in house prize giving jalsa maybe conducted.



Objectives of conducting Imtihaan
  • To assess the standard of ta’leem (deeni education) at the Makaatib.
  • To assess the standard of TEACHING of the Mua’llimeen in various subjects of the Curriculum offered.
  • To assess students’ performance in the subjects taught, both, practical as well as theoretical.

The Method of Ta'leem & Importance of the Makaatib

by: Hadhrat Moulana Yusuf Motala Saahib (db). If you study and ponder over the history of Muslims who came after Nabi [sallallahu alayhi wasallam], you will no doubt find numerous examples and incidents which will clearly testify that this method of ta’leem i.e. establishment of Maktabs, has remained the most vital and effective way of retaining and preserving our Deen in its original pristine purity.



The Key Feature in a Teacher

Attendance and punctuality are the key features in any teacher, more so a teacher of the Qur-aan and Hadith. In order to produce excellent results in the classroom, a teacher has to imbibe the attribute of punctuality in his/her life. In fact, punctuality is the stepping stone towards success in any field.
