“Sacred education is a God given right of each person that begins prior to birth. Our mission is to deliver this inalienable right thereby facilitating our ultimate purpose, to know God.”


The resulting personalised learning is realised by recognising and translatingindividual needs into a curriculum framework. The micro-madrasa model supports flexibility and naturally facilitates change by, enabling curriculum patterns to be reshaped according to changing needs. Sessions are divided into four distinct areas;

  • 01/ Weekly Sessions

    These sessions are the foundation of the course in which the core teachings are imparted. Seven of the eight curriculum areas will be covered over the three year duration of the course. These are Arabic Language (al-Lughah), Quranic Studies (Ulum al-Quran), Sacred Law (ash-Shari'ah), Islamic Theology (at-Tawhid), Prophecy (an-Nubuwwah), Hadith Studies (Ulum al-Hadith) and Islamic Spirituality (al-Ihsan).

  • 02/ Monthly Sessions

    These are thematic sessions delivered by guest lecturers on the last Friday of each month. The main aim of theses sessions is to bring greater definition and clarity to the religious philosophy of the micro-madrasa, more commonly known as the Three Objectives; knowledge (al-'ilm), spiritual excellence (al-ihsan) and prophetic conveyance (ad-da'wah an-nabawiyyah).

  • 03/ Annual Sessions

    The Trodden Path Sacred Retreats function as a crucible in which theory can be translated into practice within a condusive faith based environment. Texts covered are usually drawn from the more practical sciences of the sacred such as prophecy (an-nubuwwah), spiritual practice (as- suluk), etiquettes (al-akhlaq) and prophetic conveyance (ad-da'wah an-nabawiyyah).

  • 04/ Vocational Sessions

    The enduring aim of these sessions is to help bridge the micro-madrasa curriculum back into our communities by harnessing the knowledge, understanding and spiritual excellence needed for students to make a positive and enduring contribution to the fabric of faith in contemporary society through the development of sustainable grassroots initiatives in our communities. The sessions will endeavour to promote religious, ethical and social responsibility through a variety of relevant and structured workshops, short courses and lectures and are viewed as an essential part of the overall curriculum.
