” In the name of Allåh, the Beneficent,the Merciful.
Read in the name of thy Lord Who creates,
Creates man from a clot,
Read and thy Lord is most Generous
Who taught by the pen
Taught man what he knew not.”
The curriculum of Rabia recognises that all knowledge is sacred and worthy of pursuit and that learning is a lifelong tradition in Islam.
Rabia`s curriculum is designed to foster thought, curiosity and a desire for learning in all students, regardless of their backgrounds, strengths and needs. The curriculum should be a gateway to opportunity and a knowledge-based vibrant community in the United Kingdom and beyond.
The curriculum of Rabia will serve the aims of the school and its community. This is defined through the school’s mission statement:
‘Promoting a culture of educational excellence, from within a caring and secure Islamic environment enriched with values of discipline, mutual care and respect which extends beyond the school, into the wider community.’
The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “If anyone travels on a road in search of knowledge, God will cause him to travel on one of the roads of Paradise. The angels will lower their wings in their great pleasure with one who seeks knowledge. The inhabitants of the heavens and the Earth and (even) the fish in the deep waters will ask forgiveness for the learned man. The superiority of the learned over the devout is like that of the moon, on the night when it is full, over the rest of the stars. The learned are the heirs of the Prophets, and the Prophets leave (no monetary inheritance), they leave only knowledge, and he who takes it takes an abundant portion. – Sunan of Abu-Dawood, Hadith 1631
