Snippets from the Ta`limul Qira-ah Part 1

1.               SINGLE LETTERS-INTRODUCED WITH FATHAH - this section places emphasis on sound & recognition & is further supplemented by reading & writing exercises.    Revision exercises have been included at regular intervals for evaluation.

2.              JOINED FORM OF LETTERS WITH FATHAH, KASRAH & DHAMMAH - These sections makes the learning of the joined form simple & easy to recognise -with each letter being shown in its different form - i.e. initial, median & end form.  The format for these sections are similar, where each letter is taught with its respective vowel sign i.e. Fathah, Kasrah or Dhammah. Reading exercises have been included at regular intervals for evaluation.
3.        SUKOON - Our experience has shown that pupils have great difficulty in reading letters with sukoon.    Therefore, this includes examples of 2, 3, & 4 letter words that have Sukoon in them.    The examples are set out effectively, where each letter is taught preceded either by a Fathah, Kasrah or Dhammah which is linked with familiar words & vivid graphics.

This is a series of 7 books ranging from Book 1 to Book 7 which encompasses every aspect of human relations and inter-actions as commanded by Allah (SWT) in the Holy Qur'aan and as taught to us by Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him).

N.B.    This is a sneak preview of one of our lessons.


To be honest we have to be truthful, fair and sincere at all times.

Honesty means not to speak a lie, cheat or steal in whatever we say or do.
To be honest is a good deed and action.
We must try to be honest in everything that we do.    We must be honest at home, school, madrasah, at work or when we are with other people.    Even a little lie or a small act of stealing and cheating is being dishonest.
Remember! One lie leads to telling many lies.
Allah (SWT) tells us in the Qur'aan in Surah Taubah, Surah 9 Verse 119:


1.               Honest people are  respected  and  trusted  by everyone.
2.               Parents  are  happy  when they know that their  children  are  honest.
3.               Teachers  are  pleased  with  pupils    that are  honest.
4.               Owners  of shops or factories are  happy  to  employ  (give work to) people who are  honest.

Prophet Muhammad(Peace be upon him)  is reported to have said:



This series of 7 -- Book 1 to Book 7 provides the learner with a concise, clear and sincere effort on the Beliefs and Tenets of Islam, covering topics on Imaan and A`maal, Tawhid, Wudu, Ghusl, Details on Salaah, Zakaah, Sawm, Al  >Ud-hiyyah, etc. The subject matter in these series will be of benefit to Muslim students, adults and reverts who are desirious of equipping themselves with the basic knowledge of Islam and its practical application.

N.B.  This is a snippet of one of our lessons.


Salaah (Prayer) is the most important duty of a Muslim.  In fact, it is the best way of worshipping (praying to) Allah (swt).  Every Muslim must perform their Salaah 5 times a day as taught/shown to us by our Prophet Muhammad  (Peace be upon him).
Allah (swt) tells us in the Holy Qur'aan that reading Salaah regularly keeps a Muslim away from doing bad deeds (things).    In other words, Salaah teaches us to be good Muslims and by being good Muslims we will please Allah (swt).
Reading Salaah regularly helps to make us more aware of our Creator/Maker Allah (swt).
We know that we read Salaah for Allah    (swt) only and that He is watching us and is Aware of whether we are reading our Salaah regularly or not.
Our Prophet Muhammad  (Peace be upon him)  is reported to have said:

"Salaah is the key to Jannah."

Let us now see what are some of the benefits of Salaah.

1.              Salaah helps us to remember and become    more aware of Allah (swt).
2.              Salaah reminds us that we are the servants of Allah (swt) only.
3.              Salaah is the key to Jannah.
4.              By reading Salaah we show our thanks to Allah (swt) for whatever He has given us.
5.              By reading Salaah a Muslim    gets the Mercy and Help of Allah (swt).
6.              Salaah teaches a Muslim to be punctual (to be on time.)
7.              Salaah makes our belief in Allah (swt) more strong.
8.              By reading Salaah, Allah  (swt)becomes happy with us.

Since Salaah is the best way of praying to Allah   (swt), let us make a promise that we will read our Salaah regularly, Inshaa'Allah.


This is a series of 7 - i.e. Book 1 to Book 7 beginning from the Birth of Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) to the Khulafaa-e-Rashideen.

Islamic History at IEOSA does not only cover facts and events that have occurred in the past.    The entire syllabus has been designed to make learners look into our past and to improve on our present and future lives.    These textbooks have been prepared as study material for learners and the illustrations serve only as a supplement to the information contained in the books. Parents will also find the textbooks useful when helping their children to study, as they can read and explain the notes to them.
It is our hope that the textbooks in the Islamic History Series will make enlightening reading Inshaa'Allah.

Birth of Prophet Muhammad  (Peace be upon him)  to Mt. Safa

Simplicity, Courage & Forgiveness
Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) was simple, courageous and firm in his mission throughout his life.    The Prophet's (Peace be upon him) boyhood was a simple and hard one.    He spent his time mostly in the countryside tending to sheep, and seeking the truth.    During his adulthood he chose    a simple, yet busy career, that of trading. He was prosperous in his travels, and had a firm belief in the truth even when he received his revelation.
He (Peace be upon him) was aware of the hardships that awaited him in the future during his mission to spread Islam.   Although he (Peace be upon him) was going to be a leader of a new nation, he was not proud and lived a simple life.    He (Peace be upon him) did not consider himself to be higher than the other Muslims but worked alongside,    rather than apart and above them.
His (Peace be upon him) strong courage and firmness came from his faith and belief in Allah (swt).    He did not fall trap to the bribes from the people who wished for him to stop his mission.    He (Peace be upon him) knew that nothing any human offered to him could ever be better than what the Almighty had given him.
So he firmly and courageously refused lavish gifts and wealth without the slightest doubt in his (Peace be upon him) heart.


This series compiled for Grade 1 to Grade 7 provides selected Surahs from 30 Juz (chapter) of the Holy Qur'aan, as well as Du`aas for daily use found in the Sunnah.    A noteworthy feature is the summarization at the end of each surah which will prove invaluable in giving the learner an insight into the Holy Qur'aan. Together with the Arabic text and translation of each supplication, the etiquettes and virtues as contained in the Sunnah is also provided.

Peace be upon you, and the Mercy of  Allah and His Blessings

And on you be peace, and the Mercy of  Allah and His Blessings.

a)       "And when you are greeted (out of courtesy) respond to it with a greeting better than it, (at least) of equal courtesy." (Surah 4 : Verse 86)
b)       When Muslims meet one another they should greet each other with the Islamic greetings.
c)       That person who greets first without waiting for the other person to greet, is closer to Allah (SWT). (Bukhari, Abu Dawood Tirmizi).
d)       One should greet loud enough for the one (for whom the greeting is    intended) to hear it. (Ibid)
e)       The young should always greet the elderly, those who are walking should greet those who are sitting and the fewer should greet the many. (Bukhari, Ibid)

f)        To greet when entering or leaving home (whether one's own house or that of another).  Allah (SWT) is a guarantee for that person who greets and then enters his house. i.e. Allah (SWT) suffices for him during his life, after his death and Jannah shall be his abode. (Al Adabul Mufrid).

This is a series that promotes an efficiency in the usage of Arabic through speaking, creates an ability of expressing oneself in the written word, i.e. of Arabic, and instils the love for the language of the Holy Qur'aan.

A sneak preview from one of our Workbooks.


Children have very logical minds and they are interested in sequences and order in their daily lives from a very young age.    Pre-Mathematical skills have to do with preparing the young child for mathematical experiences in the formal learning environment. Maths is introduced in a very concrete form and then leads to the abstract in a logical sequence.

Some Islamic examples are as follows:
a.                Islamic concepts of Allah as our only creator,
b.                First and last Prophets of Allah,
c.                5 Pillars of Islam,
d.                5 Daily Salaah,
e.                Allah's creations - our bodies, etc.

These are presented to the children, through various activities in different ways.

U-Ibraaheem (AS) wayenguMprofethi omkhulu ka-Allah uSomandla, owabeka u-Ibraaheem (AS) ezilingweni eziningi kodwa wayeyikholwa leqiniso futhi wazinikela kakhulu endleleni ka-Allah uSomandla.    Ngenkathi u-Ibraaheem (AS) ezama ukufundisa abantu ngesikhathi sokuphila kwakhe ukuthi abakhonza izithombe babi ngani.    Ngelinyeilanga abantu balapha ayehlala khona babehambile wathatha imbazo wanqamula zonke izithixo zabo ngaphandle kwesikhulu, wase ebeka imbazo entanyeni yelesisithixo.
Uma abantu sebebuyile bathukuthela kakhulu ku-Ibraaheem (AS) bambuza ukuthi into embi kangaka uyenzeleni.    Wabe esetshela labantu ukuthi ukukhonza izithixo kubi ngani, wabacela ukuba babuze    isithixo esikhulu ukuthi izithixo ezincane zibulawe ubani.    Babazi ukuthi isithixo ngeke sikwazi ukukhuluma noma siphendule imibuzo yabo futhi ngeke sibenzele lutho njengoba sasenziwe ngamatshe.    Ngenkathi bekuqonda lokhu bathukuthela kakhulu baze benza umlilo lapho bajiba khona u-Ibraaheem (AS)    ukuze afe,    kodwa ngukubambelela okholweni u-Allah uSomandla wamsindisa njengoba atshela umlilo ukuba ubande, usuwehlile umlilo u-Ibraaheem (AS) wavela kuwo esaphila futhi engalimele.    Lokhu kwakuyisivivinyo u-Allah ayemfake kuso noma kunjalo wayingcina yonke imithetho ka-Allah uSomandla futhi u-Allah wathokoza ngaye.

Emva kuka Aadam (AS),    Noah (AS), Ibraaheem    (AS),    nabanye abaPropfethi kwadlula iminyaka eminingi ngaphambi kokuba kuthunyelwe emhlabeni u-Isaa (AS), ukuzoholela abantu endleleni eqondile.
Ngokuhamba kwesikhathi abantu basebethatha ngokungafanele u-Isaa (AS) njengendodana ka-Allah uSomandla ngenxa yemilingo ayenikwe amandla ukuba ayenze, noma kunjalo kwafika isikhathi lapho abantu ababengakholwa kuye banquma ukuba abulawe.    U-Allah uSomandla wayemthanda ngakho wamvikela.
Njengama Muslim siyakholwa ukuthi akabulawanga futhi akabethelwanga esiphambanweni ngamaJuda.    Okwenzeka wanyuselwa ezulwini u-Allah uSomandla.    Lapho aphila khona ngamandla ka-Allah.    Siyakholwa ukuthi u-Isaa (AS) uyobuya ozobhubhisa    izitha ze-Islam.


The first word that Allah(SWT) had revealed to Prophet Muhammad(Peace be upon him) through Angel Jibra`eel (A.S) was IQRA - READ.

Surah Al-Alaq (96), Verses 1-5
1. Read! in the name of thy Lord and Cherisher Who created
2. Created man out of a (mere) clot of congealed blood:
3. Read! And thy Lord is Most Bountiful
4. He Who taught (the use of) the Pen
5. Taught man that which he knew not.

It can be seen from the above statement that the very first word which was revealed from Allah(SWT) to mankind, through Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him)  was to READ.  Allah(SWT)  has emphasized reading, studying, research and the application of the knowledge that we have to fulfil the role of being vicegerents on earth.
Our library therefore plays a very important role in the organisation.    We have research material in different languages.    Some of our reference books go back several years and therefore have become a collectors item.
Our library research centre can be regarded as our nerve centre in view of our policy of constant research, improving our publications, as well as providing resource material in the various educational programs of the organisation.

Magazines, reports, newsletters and constant purchase of new resource material, Alhamdulillah helps us to keep abreast of time primarily in the field of education.  We will highly appreciate it if you could help, by donating to us books, articles, periodicals, magazines, newsletters, and / or audio/visual resource material.
