Al-Misbaah's Maktab program teaches Muslim children about their religion, fostering a strong foundation for the next generation. Maktab, similar to elementary school in the Muslim world, imparts knowledge on Islam, Qur'an memorization, and recitation.

Our Maktab aims to:

  1. Teach children their individual Islamic obligations (fard 'ayn).
  2. Help children incorporate this knowledge into their daily lives, nurturing piety and God-consciousness.
  3. Foster a stronger connection with the local masjid, promoting community engagement.

Graduating from our Makatib equips children with a confident Islamic identity, enabling them to resist societal pressures and approach the Deen with a healthy attitude.

Our goal is to establish Maktab programs in various masajid and musallahs across Sacramento County. These Makatib will identify students for our Qur'an memorization program, offering them a path to join the Al-Misbaah seminary. The seminary provides opportunities for individuals seeking to deepen their Islamic knowledge, with the goal of nurturing qualified ulama who can serve the local community.

Through our Maktab and seminary programs, we aim to create a community equipped with knowledgeable scholars who understand and address the issues and needs of our community.

How is our Maktab Different?

We do not provide Maktab for the sake of having Maktab. Furthermore, we have metrics that we use to monitor student progress to ensure they are actually learning, retaining, and implementing the knowledge being taught. For instance, we provide 3rd party Quranic and Islamic Studies assessments, attendance tracking, and Teacher Assistants (to reduce in-class distractions). For those students who are looking to take their knowledge to the next level, we plan to establish an Advanced Maktab Program, Hifdh School, and a Seminary IA.

Not only does Maktab focus on educating students in Quranic and Islamic Studies, we also focus on creating a safe social space for our students to help them succeed with their studies. More specifically, we collaborate with our Junior Lanterns department to provide our students with field trips, schoolwork tutoring, and physical education activities.

Fostering Strong Young Believers

The Al-Misbaah Maktab program was established with the goal of creating strong, young believers that are confident in their Muslim identity.

There are nearly 80,000 Muslims in the Greater Sacramento area. Approximately 25% of those Muslims are under 18. Our intent is to make Islamic studies accessible to everyone. Currently, over 95% of the over 400 students are from lower income families, with the majority of them being refugees.
