Our Concept

Islamic Montessori was created by Hjh Roselina Hussein who was…….Islamically Guided!

As Muslims we are compelled to guide our children in accordance to Al Qur’an and As-sunnah of Prophet Muhammad صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم the rightly guided. Rasulullah was send to guide us through life to be successful in the world and hereafter. A father must protect his sons and daughters from everything that may bring them close to the Fire.

Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“O you who believe! Ward off yourselves and your families against a Fire (Hell) whose fuel is men and stones, over which are (appointed) angels stern (and) severe,who disobey not, (from executing) the Commands they receive from Allah, but do that which they are commanded” 

[al-Tahreem 66:6]

Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“And (remember) when Luqmaan said to his son when he was advising him: “O my son! Join not in worship others with Allah. Verily, joining others in worship with Allah is a great Zulm (wrong) indeed”

[Luqmaan 31:13]

And as been narated in Sharh al-Nawawi ‘ala Saheeh Muslim, 8/44 :

The father should bring them up with good manners in all things, eating, drinking, dressing, sleeping, going out of the house, entering the house, riding in vehicles, etc, and in all their affairs. He should in still in them the attributes of a good man, such as love of sacrifice, putting others first, helping others, chivalry and generosity. He should keep them away from evil characteristics such as cowardice, stinginess, lack of chivalry, lack of ambition, etc.

It is clear that as practising Muslim parents, it is our duty to educate our children in accordance to the teachings of Al Qur’an and the Sunnah of our beloved prophet Muhammad صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم. Our hope and prayer that Nuh’s Ark is rightly guided and has taken the blessed path in doing so.

Ameen.

Maria Montesori

…….And Montessorily Inspired! by one woman who change the world.

Dr. Maria Montessori has developed a method that is now widely known as The Montessori Method of education. It is a child-centered educational approach based on scientific observations of children from birth to adulthood. Montessori Method has been time tested, with over 100 years of success in diverse cultures throughout the world. Montessori view the child as one who is naturally eager for knowledge and capable of initiating learning in a supportive, thoughtfully prepared learning environment. It is an approach that values the human spirit and the development of the whole Child—physical, social, emotional, cognitive and spiritual.

“Education is a natural process carried out by the human individual, and is acquired not by listening to words, but by experiences in the environment.” – Maria Montessori
