Junior College

OBJECTIVES

It is said that the journey to acquiring knowledge is a noble one but also among the most trying of tasks with a few of the conditions to acquiring knowledge being patience, perseverance, the guidance of a teacher and the length of time.

Due to this, Daar Ibn Abass College has made the Junior Shariah course available to not only meet the growing need for classes and quench the thirst for knowledge, but also to assist in achieving what is by no means an easy task. Through the course, Daar Ibn Abbas College endeavours to ‘plant’ the love of Islam in the hearts of the next generation through the foundational Islamic teachings of Quran, Hadith, Seerah and Adab in an environment conducive to learning and suited to prepare and equip students with the knowledge required to live as practical Muslims.

INTENTION

‘Planting seeds of righteousness’.

CLASS HOURS ON OFFER

Parents have the following enrollment options subject to class capacity:

•        Weekday Evening: Monday and Wednesday 5pm to 7pm. (boys only)

•        Weekends: Saturday 9am to 1pm. (Boys & Girls)

 

COURSE PROGRAM AND CONTENT
QAIDA:

The approved text source for this area of the course is ‘The easy way to read the Quran’ (available in the reception). All teachers will simplify and deliver the theory of the lessons in English with Arabic demonstrations/examples to maximize each students understanding (of the makhraj (pronunciation), vowels, extensions, sukoons, shaddas and their applications) and give them a degree of independence in learning/revising via the ‘spelling technique’. The rate for progression will directly result from the amount of time and effort they invest in the lesson. In assistance to this, Teachers will consistently encourage students to improve and work hard and may offer praise to those students who deliver lessons consistently, display good Adab and a strong work ethic.

Progression will occur when the student displays a good understanding of the given exercise and applies all previously learnt knowledge correctly and appropriately. Repetition/Revision of a given lesson is required when this is not the case as progression without the correct understanding and application of each successive concept will only add to the workload of a student and may have a negative effect. (The ‘spelling technique’ will see that all learnt concepts and applications are carried through to the end of the Qaida process and thus ensure a high quality outcome).

Grading of lessons will be based on quality and strength of lessons, number of mistakes made, level of understanding and execution, but most of all, grades will be used as a means of encouragement.

QURAN:

All students are required to bring their own Mushaf of which any print may be used (13 line/15 line). Upon graduation to the ‘Quran class’, students will receive short recited lessons (not memorisation) and be introduced to tajweed (printed handout). With each lesson, one/two tajweed rules will be learnt and applied in the recited lesson. Given tajweed rules are to be memorized and marked (pencil) within each given lesson (by the student) to display a demonstrated understanding of these rules in identification and application before progressing. As in case of the Qaida, the rate for progression will directly result from the amount of time and effort students invest in the lesson.  In assistance to this, Teachers will consistently encourage students to improve and work hard and may offer praise to those students who deliver lessons consistently, display good Adab and a strong work ethic.

Progression in Tajweed will occur when the student displays a good understanding of the given exercise and applies all previously learnt knowledge correctly and appropriately. Repetition/Revision of these lessons is required when this is not the case as progression without the correct understanding and application of each successive concept will only add to the workload of a student and may have a negative effect.  The successful memorization, comprehension and application of the Tajweed rules in the complete recitation of Juz Amma will result in the students’ graduation to memorisation.

Grading of lessons will be based on quality and strength of lessons, number of mistakes made, level of understanding and execution, but most of all, grades will be used as a means of encouragement.

ADAB/ISLAMIC STUDIES

Through the use of the text ‘Islamic Tahdib and Akhlaq’, we aim to expose and encourage students to learn and practice proper Islamic etiquettes (Adab) in their everyday lives so they can exhibit/display the character of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAW).

The source text for the ‘Islamic Studies’ area of the program covers a broad range of subjects based on the teachings of Quran and Sunnah. New topics will be introduced each week in accordance to the ‘age group’ and needs.

DUAS/SEERAH

The source text (‘Daily Dua’) for the Dua section of the program will follow on from the last Adab lesson and introduce one short practical Dua every two weeks for memorization and implementation as scholars say that that the result of acquired knowledge is practice (e.g. Dua before eating).

The Seerah portion of the program will see students exposed to the life of our Prophet (SAW) through the use of the ‘Makkan Period’ book in the weekend learning series to give them a better understanding of the history of Islam as well as to cultivate the love of our Prophet (SAW) in their hearts.

SHARIAH (TAHAARAH & SALAAH)

Using an approved text ‘SALAH: for Boys’, teachers will simplify (when required) and explain to students (via handouts, note taking (Allama Bil Qalam) and practical demonstrations) the importance of Tahaarah, Salaah and the religious conditions and steps attached to it.

HOMEWORK: QURAN/QAIDA

It is of paramount importance that parents are proactive in their child’s learning and assist in the preparation of given homework (recorded on individual ‘Progress Card’ together with any concerns or comments of the teacher) to ensure progression that will directly result from the amount of time and effort invested in the lesson.

All Teachers will be qualified to teach their subjects and are assessed by the Daar Ibn Abbas Head teacher. All of our teachers will respect the ethos and rules of the college and set the highest Islamic standards to our pupils.

HEALTH AND SAFETY

The College Director and Head Teacher have both undergone First Aid training. They will be the dedicated First Aiders in the unfortunate event of an accident.

All students attendance will be recorded daily which will provide a record should an emergency evacuation take place.  All rooms are fitted with smoke detectors and emergency evacuation muster points have been identified at theBankstownsite.

Students will be required to sit a short Health and Safety Induction that covers:

– What to do in an event of a fire.

– Emergency muster points

– Dealing with strangers (students will ALWAYS be accompanied by an adult teacher)

– Introducing them to their first aiders

All students will be required to sign a document confirming that they understand the above. This is a system that we have developed to ensure that all of the students in our care have been informed of these important aspects of our Health and Safety procedures.

CLASSES DURING RAMADAN & EID

Classes during Ramadan will be held on location on Saturdays from 9am to 1pm irrespective of the normal class time. A reminder will be sent out beforehand to ensure that parents are aware of the adjustment.

No classes will run during the periods of Eid. If students miss out on class as a result of Eid, then a make-up class will be offered.

CONGREGATIONAL PRAYER

Our Bankstown premises allows for students to attend at least one congregational prayer with us in the Musallah. Not only will this give students the opportunity to gain practical experience in the ablution and prayer but also an opportunity to learn the Adaab (manners) of conducting ones-self in the house of Allah.

DISCIPLINARY POLICY

The school holds a ‘zero tolerance’ policy toward unislamic behavior such as bullying and vulgar language. Parents of any student employing such habits will be contacted immediately to discuss appropriate disciplinary action.

SUGGESTIONS AND COMPLAINTS

Daar Ibn Abbas College is constantly striving to improve its facilities and programs and welcomes any constructive suggestions and concerns from parents.
