Madrasa Syllabus (Man`haj) by Islamic Curriculum Development Council. (I.C.D.C):

This curriculum has a strong foundation in Islamic values. Our students receive a comprehensive understanding of Islamic teachings, ethics, and practices, fostering strong moral and spiritual development.

It also has a dedicated focus on Arabic language: Through immersive learning, students gain fluency in Arabic, allowing them to connect with the Quran and Islamic scholarship.
