The Road to Healing
Darul Arqam Educational Trust has been successful in providing a much-needed service. Enabling Muslims to have easy access to learn about their religion in a fruitful and interactive manner. By offering such avenues of education the Trust also seeks to provide the Muslim community with social, cultural and educational activities to create a sense of identity, moral responsibility, self reliance, community spirit and to empower alienated groups to play a meaningful part in a multicultural society.
Darul Arqam Trust provides accessible e-learning platforms, enabling a wider audience to benefit from the lights of the Divine Revelation and the Prophetic Guidance. In addition to serving the educational needs we offer the global Ummah guidance as believers; as a minority in a secular context – hoping to fuse the best from the Islamic civilisation and the Western civilisation using an Islamic scholarly approach.
The Prophet ﷺ said: “Mankind has not spent in charity anything better than the spreading of knowledge.”
For ultimately, Allah (Glorious is He) has manifested us upon this earth for the betterment of the creation, in guiding mankind to His worship. The Prophet ﷺ has said: “All of you are from the slaves of Allah and the most beloved of you to Allah are the ones who are the most beneficial to His slaves.”
