As in other levels, the stories of some of the Messengers are discussed in Unit 2. A few other fascinating stories from the Qur’ān are presented in Unit 3. Unit 4 discusses the life and contributions of two companions who shaped the early history of Islam. Several diverse topics to enrich students’ knowledge are discussed in Unit 5. Unit 6 describes several moral and ethical issues addressed in the Qur’ān. Proper adab and akhlaq learned from the Qur’ān is the best.

Some topics are covered in multiple grades to add different perspective, details and additional emphasis. The teachers and director of the school will find continuity in the curriculum as it unfolds year to year. Teachers will know how much each student will learn year to year, and how much they will have learned at the end when they graduate out of the school.

The lessons are tailored for 50-60 minute classes. Students in all grades will love the simple and child-friendly language and sentences in the books. The language of the lessons and the treatment of the subjects are made from children’s perspective. Even English spelling of Arabic words is age appropriate. The books do not simply disseminate knowledge, but make it relevant to the students’ life and their world. The lessons do not use a lecturing tone, but engage the students in a respectful discussion.
