Essentials of Islam


In a time where misinformation is easily circulated, it is becoming extremely challenging to differentiate fact from fiction when it comes to the teachings of Islam. People who are new to Islam, curious about Islam, or even those who have been Muslim their entire life, need a means to develop a better understanding of the teachings of the glorious Qur’an and Hadith. This knowledge should be sought through the correct channel of Scholars who have dedicated their lives in acquiring this sacred knowledge. For this reason, and by the will of Allah, Masjid Umar Farooq is offering Islamic studies classes for anyone interested in learning the essentials of Islam and beyond.

We encourage everyone, new Muslim or not, to attend these sessions to develop your understanding and strengthen your faith. All are welcome!

Evening Maktab



Day by day it becomes more obvious that the one and only way that will bring the entire mankind to solace, comfort and prosperity begins with the foundations we lay down for the young people in our communities.  An important and key element in this awakening process is the establishment of institutions of higher Islamic learning.  The Maktab program will provide our youth with the true and practical essence of Islam.

What is a Maktab?

In the medieval Islamic world, an elementary school was known as a maktab, which dates back to at least the 10th century. Maktabs were often attached to a Masjid and their emergence played a fundamental role in the relatively high literacy rates during the golden age of the Islamic world and helped drive the inventions and educational developments that Muslims are accredited with today. Traditionally, Maktabs focused on guiding children in reading, writing, grammar and Islamic subjects.
