Our philosophy of education through our Afterschool Qur’an, Arabic, & Islamic Studies program is focused on aiding Muslim children in reaching their fullest religious potential, enabling them to attain success in this life and in the Hereafter.

Tawheed (Allah’s Oneness): Allah says: “… So Know (understand) that La illaha illallah (none has the right to be worshiped except Allah …” [Qur’an Chapter 47 Verse 19]

At Al Firdaous we understand the importance of studying the matters of Tawheed (Allah’s Oneness) and how it teaches children everything they need to know of Allah's existence. The fact that He is the One and Only Lord of all that exists. His right to be singled out alone with all acts of worship. The purpose in which Allah created mankind. the things that help each soul to attain taqwaa and to refrain from sin, keeping them in the favor of Allah, making them successful in this life and in the hereafter.

The Sunnah of Muhammad (Peace be upon him): Allah Says: “Indeed in the Messenger of Allah (Muhammad SAW) you have a good example to follow for him who hopes in (the Meeting with) Allah and the last Day and remembers Allah much.” [Qur’an Chapter 33 [Verse 21]

We emphasize on teaching how important it is to learn from both the Qur’an and the Sunnah (example) of Muhammad (SAW), so that children can build a good and strong foundation of how to “perfect” their worship to Allah, and truly fulfill the purpose of their lives.
