  • Modular Programme

  • The CIL Youth programme is a modular programme designed to give students - at key stage 3 and 4 level - a basic foundation in farḑ al- ‘ayn knowledge; knowledge that is essential for every Muslim to learn. This unique one year programme will cover book 2 (CIL Youth 1 students) & book 3 (CIL Youth 2 students) from the iSyllabus for Schools series.

    Featuring 36 interactive lessons, the books provide a detailed introduction to the basics of Islam. Additional material will also be covered throughout the year.

    The course is based on a traditional understanding of Sunni doctrine and the Hanafi school of law, and is taught by traditionally trained and authorised teachers. Upon completing the programme, students will have acquired a good foundational knowledge in the core disciplines as well as an exposure to formal Islamic studies.

    How are the classes taught?

    We run both CIL Youth 1 and CIL Youth 2 classes simultaneously. The classes are taught at the New Bucks University main campus. What's the Format of the lessons? The lesson is 2 hours long with a 10 min break in between. All lessons are taught from the book and have accompanying powerpoint slides which are used to display via the overhead projectors.

  • So what is unique about this course?
    1. Shaykh Tanveer & Imam Haseeb will deliver the course over 36 weeks, teaching 2 hours each week.

    2. 36 different lessons will be taught, covering an array of different, exciting topics related to Islam, Imaan, Ihsan, and living Islam.

    3. Each class will be interactive and delivered by British born, tradionally trainded Imams; so as to maximise understanding.

    4. The students will have lots of opportunities to ask the questions relevant to them.

  • Is CIL Youth for my child?
  • The Cil Youth programme has successfully been running for the last 2 years with over 150 children between the ages of 11-16, Alhamdulillah.

    The programme was thoroughly enjoyed by both; the children and the teachers.

    This programme will allow the children-at this vulnerable and delicate period of their lives- to not only have access to fundamental knowledge, but more importantly to mentors who shall serve as role models and guides in this sensitive period of their lives. Safeguarding one’s faith and identity as a Muslim is of upmost importance; and it is hoped that this programme will facilitate this for our next generation.Who should attend? This programme is tailored for Muslim boys and girls between the ages of 10-16.

The topics listed above cover a number of different subjects. A unique aspect of this course is that it hopes to deal with certain contemporary issues facing Muslims living within the UK; such as, identity, gender and being Muslim at school. It is hoped that this course will give our children a much needed framework of what it means to be a Muslim living in 21st century Britain.
