The Al-Arqam mission is to have an educational institution that teaches and nurtures the "whole" child - intellectually, emotionally and physically, and to instill in each student the principles of submission to the Will of Allah as an essential element in achieving excellence academically and personally.


Plans are currently underway for a second floor expansion. Please help us and donate by contacting our office.

Assalamualaykum AIS/ACP Families, 

Insha'Allah this message reaches you and your family members in the best of health and Eman. 

The new theme for the month of March will be: Islam the Truth, "Why Islam, it's time to know the truth?" Read our newletter on the topic here.

Life’s daily grind can often limit faith to brief ritualistic practices that we need to finish as quickly as possible, then return to seemingly more important things. Rarely do we find time to slow down and consider what exactly it means to be Muslims. What distinguishes our faith from any other way of life out there? This month at Al-Arqam, we will briefly step away from our character building tarbiyah themes, and dedicate some time to strengthening our faith at its core.

Islam is the only way of life that has remained consistent throughout the ages. Many of the beliefs and practices that we follow have been around since the day Allah (swt) blew the soul into the body of Adam (as), the father of mankind. In fact, the first thing that happened when the soul entered the body was that Adam (as) sneezed and said Alhamdulillah. Allah (swt) responded Yarhamuk-Allah, bestowing his mercy upon Adam (as). Adam then approached the angels to converse with them, he began by greeting them, As-Salamu Alaikum. Are these not the same mannerisms and greetings that we practice to this very day? Allah (swt) ordained those practices since the beginning of mankind, and only Islam still preserves them!

Allah (swt) has blessed us with the preserved path, guidance that has not been lost over time. A book which is the literal speech of Allah, remains with us in its original form. No other faith or belief system can make that claim. At times we have to take a step back and remember the blessing that we are upon as Muslims. This month at Al-Arqam, our theme will be “Islam-the Truth,” so that we can do just that.
