IMANIC EDUCATION PROGRAM:
The Imanic Education Program at Charlotte Islamic Academy is based on two hadiths: the famous hadith of Jibreel Alayhi Salaam, in which the Prophet Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam explained that faith has three levels; Islam, Iman, and Ihsan.
The hadith states: "Iman has over seventy branches, the uppermost of which is the declaration La Ilaha Illallah (There’s no God but Allah); and the least of which is the removal of harmful objects from the road, and modesty is a branch of Iman.''
Scholars of Islam identified seventy-seven branches of Iman, which include the love of Allah, love of the Prophet (SAW), to love for your brother what you love for yourself, generosity, cleanliness, visiting the sick, etc.
The Imanic Education program at Charlotte Islamic Education seeks to implement the following:
1. To educate students about the branches of Iman.
2. To integrate the branches across the curriculum.
3. To practice every branch individually and/or in groups.
Excellence (Ihsan) in education is the main academic goal of Charlotte Islamic Academy. Our general studies program has been designed to meet the state and national standards. Students receive instruction in the subjects of English, math, science, social studies, physical education, computer, and electives.
At the core of Charlotte Islamic Academy’s instructional program is the teaching of Quran, Arabic, and Islamic studies. These are required subjects for all students in all grades. They are taught in conjunction with the Imanic Education Program, which helps in integrating these subjects into the general studies curriculum.
In addition to academics, the Academy provides extra-curricular activities like daily assemblies, field trips, student clubs, English Spelling Bees, Islamic Studies Competition, Science Fair, etc.
The Academy’s programs are under constant review and evaluation in order to improve students’ performance and provide the best education for our children.
