Islamic Studies Program
In the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful
All praise is due to Allah (SWT) and peace and blessings be upon His final messenger Prophet Muhammad and his pure family and noble companions.
At Unity Grammar, Islamic Studies form an integral part of the Curriculum and is embedded in all aspects of our students’ College life.
This Islamic Studies Curriculum provides a comprehensive K-10 Islamic education program specifically designed to meet the needs of Muslim students. The Curriculum reflects the aims and objectives of Unity Grammar in providing a balanced Islamic education.
One of the most important factors contributing to Unity Grammar’s status as a unique institution in the field of Islamic education is its innovative development of a comprehensive Islamic Studies Program. The program incorporates the application of a complete series of textbooks that are specifically designed to cater for the diverse needs and backgrounds of Australian Muslim students.
Additionally, students in the Junior and Secondary campus take an active role in the practice of Islamic teachings across the board by performing midday prayers daily, engaging in special programs in Ramadan and attending onsite Friday Juma sermons presented by Sheiks, students and special guests.
Unity Grammar has developed its own comprehensive K-10 Arabic program with a complete series of K-10 Arabic textbooks. The main objective of the Arabic Program is to provide the necessary skills and knowledge that enable students to communicate in the Arabic language, using modern standard Arabic (contemporary fus’hah), and to understand the primary sources of Islamic knowledge. In addition, the program aims to enable students to recognise the relationship between language and culture and appreciate social, geographical and historical contexts.
By utilising multiple sources of classical texts and modern Arabic teaching resources, the program was developed with reference to the Arabic K–10 Syllabus and in accordance with the broad learning outcomes of the K–10 Curriculum Framework set by the NESA (The NSW Education Standards Authority).
