The Husayni Madressa

OUR VISION:
Husayni Madrasah’s vision is to nurture students to become ‘Thinking and Practicing Muslims.”

MISSION 2021:
We will continue enforcing the mission that began in our previous academic years which is to ‘Build acquaintance with the Holy Quran’ and in addition, the Madrasah is putting in more efforts to ‘make learning more inclusive’ in line with the objectives set out through the
curriculum.

POLICIES:

Hadith from Imam Ali Ibn Al Hussein (AS): ‘Were people aware of what lies in the obtainment of knowledge, they would pursue it even though they had to make voyages and endanger their lives to obtain it.

We take these guidelines very seriously and strongly as they should be. We encourage you (Students and Parents) to read it thoroughly and return the consent page provided as part of enrolment process. This must be returned to the HMBS Office before 5th February 2021. The student will not be able to attend classes if this is not done.

In order to foster core Islamic principles of self-worth, self-discipline and moral conduct, HMBS has established rules and regulations. These enhance establishment of a good productive learning environment that allows effective learning and builds personality with the final goal of being the followers of the Awaited Savior (atfs).

Code of Conduct forms the basis of Akhlaq, hence, the HMBS follows the following system for students to accumulate rewarding points of good conduct or being penalized for bad conduct throughout the year. Each student will be awarded with 100 points to start the year. Points will be awarded or deducted as follows:

A student who abides to the code of conduct and has no offences at the end of every module will receive 5 points. Students obtaining 100% attendance with discipline at the end of the year will receive a special award.

RULES ON QURAN RECITATION PROGRAM

We must maintain a system and order to administer the program successfully. The following rules are necessary to make sure ALL students follow the process for successful administration.

Student’s action Results
Student’s diary is maintained correctly with parents’ signatures and comments are presented in every needed class throughout the year. 5 bonus points for the year
Student comes to Madrasah on his Quran class day without his diary. No marks (= 0) for the homework of the previous week
Student comes to Madrasah with his homework unsigned and parents’ comments missing. Homework must be done as part of coaching in Quran recitation. One mark (1) will be deducted for that week
If a student is absent at Madrasah on his Quran recitation day without notification to the HMBS No mark (0) for the homework of the previous week

Note:

  • The first page of the diary requires the signatures of two parents/guardians. Parents need to fill their signatures at the start of the year. This is to ensure integrity of the program and for security purpose.
  • Parents are required to take part actively in the comments section of each week to display the follow-up of the parents on their child’s weekly Quran homework assignment.
  • If a child forges a signature for the first time he will be awarded 0 marks for that week. If he is caught for a second time then he will be awarded 0 marks for the entire month. If he is caught for a third time then he will be awarded 0 marks for the entire module. Madrasah Management will contact the parents to assess the situation and explore remedies.

For classes 7 – 10, the 4 core subjects are; Qur’an/Akhlaq (Qur’anic Ethics), Aqaid & Fiqh (Islamic belief and law), Taarikh(Islamic History) and Qur’an recitation. Each subject consists of 3 modules and a module exam at the end. Each module carries 30%. For each subject, 10% of marks are allocated at the discretion of the teacher.
