Who We Are?

Our Mission

IISS is a not-for-profit institution set up in 1997. The Insititution strives to provide quality education to the muslim community. It provides an Academic, Islamic and moral education from Pre-Primary upto Higher Secondary Level. Our Institution also provides a unique opportunity where your child can do hifz-ul-Quran while pursuing their academic studies.

History

IISS was founded in by Dr. Mehsan Mauthoor on his return from South Africa. There he witnessed the success of this type of educational establishment. With the participation of South African educators, namely Ml. Abbas Ali who established several Islamic schools in Australia and South Africa, IISS opened its doors in January 1997 with 190 students (two kindergarten classes, four primary, two Form 1 classes and one Hifz Class).

 

Classes stated in January 1997, alhamdu lillàh, thanks to the initiative and perseverance of its founders, the expertise of educationists from Springs Muslim School of Johannesburg (South-Africa) and the co-operation of concerned Muslim parents. Eight classes (i.e. 2 pre-primary, 4 primary and 2 secondary classes) were in operation in a rented building owned by a Muslim society, the Jamia Al Uloom Al Islamia.

 

By the grace of the Almighty, the IISS has progressed steadily. From a population of about 180 students, today it has a total number of 36 classes and a school population of 650 students all sections combined.

 

The school’s main objectives since the beginning were:

  1. Our students’ success both worldly and spiritual

  2. To produce highly qualified professionals, Islamic Scholars and ethical individuals who will serve mankind in their respective fields

  3. To encourage able students to learn and memorise the Qur’àn alongside their academic education

Une note sur l’éducation en Islam

Les parents sont les premiers et les plus importants des éducateurs de leurs enfants et tout dépend d’eux (par la miséricorde d’Allah) pour assurer le bienêtre et l’avenir de leur enfant.

 

Le premier verset du Qur’an révélé au prophète Muhammad (paix soit sur lui) est :

 

إقْرَأْ بِاسْمِ رَبِّكَ الَّذِي خَلَقَ

« Lis ! au nom de ton Seigneur qui a créé »

 

Le Prophète Muhammad (pssl) dit :

 

« La recherche de la connaissance et obligatoire sur chaque musulman et musulmane. »

 

Malgré qu’en l’islam, plus d’importance est mise sur la connaissance islamique, l’emphase sur une bonne éducation académique ne saurait être minimisée, car cette éducation séculaire nous permet de subvenir aux besoins de notre vie matérielle dans ce bas monde. Mais en tant que musulmans nous savons avec certitude qu’une autre vie, éternelle, nous attend après la mort et donc, qu’il est impératif d’acquérir une connaissance qui nous y assurera le succès et le salut.

 

Ainsi en tant que parents responsables, il est de notre devoir d’éduquer nos filles et garçons selon les enseignements islamiques, afin qu’ils développent une personnalité équilibrée et vertueuse et réussissent, comme de vrais musulmans, dans ce monde et l’au-delà.
