Our Vission & Mission

Our vision is to produce a generation of dynamic young Muslims embodied with an Islamic personality, who are knowledgeable and confidence in their den both theological and practice and able to present Islam comprehensively.

We intend to achieve our objectives through teaching, guiding and assisting our students in developing their Islamic personality and inspiring them to transform themselves in the process through learning, thinking, discussion and engagement.  Education’s goal is to guide and assist students in translating their values into a way of living. It is a process of transformation than giving information.

Welcome Alnoor Madrassah

Alnoor Madrassah was established in 2004 due to the growing of Muslim community in Barking and Dagenham which led to the increasing demand of Qur’an and Islamic studies for their children. Over the years the Madrassah has educated hundreds of boys and girls enable them to understand their religion and how to live by it and be a productive members of the society. We understand that parents are the main source to instill the Islamic moral and values in their children. However, parents can do only so much. Therefore Madrassah has a vital role to instill Islamic values in our youths. Again, Madrassah can do only so much. It is tough job to help them balancing their Islamic identity with their ‘British’ identity.

Muslim students appreciate and understand Islam – its rich heritage, principles, values, teachings. We hope the Madrasah will be able to provide stepping stones for the youngsters so that they understand and accept Islam as the chosen ‘way’ of their lives. Our success will be measured years later if these youths grow up and say: thank you, you made a difference in my life!
