Why a National Association?
The National Association of Madrassah recognises the need to support young people in reading, understanding and following the teachings of the Qur’an. The Madrassah in Western Europe and North America, in its current form, has mainly come about in the 20th century, as such this Islamic educational sector is still in its infancy. Therefore, it is essential that it develops in the healthiest and the most constructive way to benefit the society it operates in.
The National Association of Madrassah recognises the need for a national support structure that will facilitate the development of leaders, teachers, administrators and the institutions, that serves children in the development of their Islamic faith identity, outside of mainstream educational settings.
The National Association of Madrassahs is non theological in its outlook, with a focus on good governance, safeguarding and effective teaching practices
