The Al-Manar Education Project has successfully assisted many young Muslims who missed out on a sound and vital early introduction to Islamic learning. Initiated in 2004, the long-term aspiration and desire of this initiative was to establish a modern learning institute properly catering for the Islamic schooling and scholarship of our ever-growing community and youth.
The goal was to establish an Islamic seminary which helps produce a new generation of Imams, Alima's, teachers, mentors, and Daee's who embody not only the authentic, precise and eternal message of Islam but whom are also compelled to excel and achieve success in their higher education. Producing tolerant and moderate Muslim professionals, who truly understand, appreciate and respect both British culture, heritage, values and citizenship, whilst also having a strong religious identity and knowledge base.
Course material includes Qur'an studies, Tajweed, Hifz, Fiqh-ul Hadith, Uloom ul Deen (Islamic studies), Arabic language, Tazkiyah (Self-purification), Khuluqul Muslim (Muslim character building) and Islamic history.
The active youth section includes weekly study circles, with snooker and table tennis facilities. The Centre regularly organises youth outings and teenage Qayamul-Layls (Mosque sleep-overs).
Brothers and sisters who require advice or assistance concerning issues of Ibadah (worship), halal/haram (permitted & prohibited), social life, divorce, domestic problems, general Islamic questions or would like to solemnise their marriage with a nikkh, are able to seek the support and guidance of the Centre’s respected Imams.
The Centre’s team of Imam’s engage in regular and in most cases honorary pastoral care for Muslims at local hospitals, schools and prisons.
