ISF’s Sunday Islamic School objective is to provide a healthy and rewarding Islamic learning environment for students. we are committed to spreading knowledge and doing our best to provide a sound, basic Islamic education.
Muslim children growing up in the US are facing diverse challenges and conflicting pressures at schools and within friend circles, constantly influenced by mainstream youth culture. It is difficult to isolate them from these influences and it is painful to let them sway into the mainstream. Excessive consumerism, peer pressure, media culture, internet, and technology confuse the youngsters’ minds regarding their objectives and ideals in life. Parents are the main source when it comes to instilling moral values in their children—However, parents can do only so much. Therefore Islamic schools have a responsibility to instill Islamic ideologies in the youth. It is a tough job to help them balance their Islamic identity with their ‘American’ identity, and ISF Sunday School is here to help.
While Islamic schools can also only do so much, we do not want to stop trying. We hope ISF Sunday School will be able to help students appreciate and understand Islam – its rich heritage, principles, values, and teachings. We aim to provide stepping-stones for youngsters so that they understand and accept Islam as a chosen way of life.
