School is not just a school, but the beginning of an educational mission at the
national level. It has been named after Mus‘ab Bin ‘Umayr (rta), who was sent by
the Holy Prophet (sws) to Madinah to teach and preach Islam, before the Prophet
(sws) migrated to the newly converted town.
this school has been established as a centre of excellence in general education.
The underlying object in the establishment of this institution is that the
doctors, engineers, lawyers, politicians, scholars and academics that this
institution turns out be not only highly competent in areas of their choice but
also good, diligent and honest human beings; above all, that the awareness and
spirit inculcated in them make them embodiment of the rich traditions of our
religion, culture and history.
for this objective is based upon the following foundations:
curriculum from class I to VIII shall centre round instruction of languages
which are to be the media of instruction for various disciplines at the
secondary and higher secondary levels. With this aim they shall acquire
reasonable proficiency in English, Urdu and Arabic languages, so that they do
not face any obstruction whatsoever on this account at later stages.
2. Since a
reasonably good command on mathematics is necessary to understand physics,
chemistry, engineering and other disciplines, it shall form a part of the
curriculum also and shall be taught intensively right from the lowest levels.
3. A new
subject of Islamic tradition shall be introduced to enhance the students’
awareness of the rich scholarly and literary traditions of the Muslim
civilization and culture. The instruction for this course shall begin from
nursery to intermediate classes. This subject includes the story and history of
civilization and culture through the ages, important events of Islamic history
and introduction to notable Muslim personalities. Selection from fine pieces of
Urdu, Persian and Arabic literature shall also be taught with special emphasis
on Iqbal, the poet of the East.
4. Fine arts
shall also be part of the curriculum from nursery to class VIII with a view to
provide some recreation to students and to develop their creative abilities. The
students shall be taught how to write in an informal manner during fine arts
classes and subsequently when they are able to draw shapes and alphabets, they
shall be instructed in dictation and calligraphy.
shall be the medium of instruction for science and related fields, Urdu for
social sciences and Arabic for Islamic Studies. So long as the students do not
have a reasonable command over the languages, they shall be trained in these
disciplines in an informal manner only.
In class IX,
the students shall be given the opportunity to select their fields and subjects
of interest in science, arts, literature, etc; they shall then be helped to
excel in these subjects from class IX up to Intermediate.
language shall be taught primarily to comprehend the Qur’an. The students shall
read the entire Qur’an during the last two years of their secondary level. It
shall be ensured that during these two years, the students absorb as much of the
Qur’anic message and content as is expected of a Muslim.
7. Keeping in
view their needs and aptitude, the boys and girls in the school shall be
formally introduced to home economics, computer operation, crafts and
selecting teachers, weightage shall be given to not only their professional
skills and teaching acumen but also to their conduct as a Muslim. It shall be
judged whether they have a commitment towards their faith and community and
whether it is their mission to enlighten the coming generation and to produce
ideal citizen for the society.
well-equipped library shall be set up for the students. They shall be motivated
to study modern techniques and to use latest technology. Education shall be
imparted through means which have been tried out and found useful
internationally. The students shall be relieved of carrying heavy satchels on
their back and getting burdensome homework. The teachers shall be paid handsome
salaries and shall be strictly forbidden to go for tuition to the students of
School began functioning in January
1994. At that stage, admissions we offered to nursery, kindergarten, class I and
II. Now, instruction up to class IV is being given and around 140 students in
all are enrolled.
institution is purely altruistic with no motives for any pecuniary advantage,
the current income generated by it is not sufficient to achieve the aim that a
mission of this nature entails; for example, the acquisition of a larger
building and of a fully equipped library have now become vital. More funds are
needed for the continual and enhanced utilisation of the services of competent
teachers. A well-equipped laboratory is also essential requirement for
instruction in science.
In spite of
all these difficulties, the institution has managed to keep the school fee far
below that of other schools and continues to give concessions to deserving
was undertaken with a well ground faith in Allah’s benevolence. Therefore, the
management of this institution have great hope that God Almighty will help them
us to achieve their objectives. However, they feel that it is also their
responsibility to communicate the difficulties being encountered to such people
of our nation as have always felt a yearning in their bosoms for a chance to do
something for our future generation to build a stronger Pakistan and stronger
ummah. Therefore, such people are informed of these efforts so that they may not
lag behind in sharing in a mission which is as much theirs as it is any one
else’s. The book of God says ‘O believers! Co-operate with one another in
goodness and piety’. Therefore, to such people, all that the management of
Mus‘ab can say is: Let’s keep the torch burning!
