This authentic, comprehensive, and well-paced curriculum was produced by the education board of Jamiatul Ulama, Transvaal, South Africa. The 70 year old organization has put the education of Muslim children as one of its top priorities. This curriculum is being used in Australia, Canada, Chile, Malawi, New Zealand, Pakistan, South Africa, UAE, UK, Zambia, Zimbabwe, and across the US. The series has also been translated in Thai, Kosovan, French, and Spanish.
Each package contains books in Tas-heel (Made Easy) series on Aqaid (beliefs), Akhlaq, Fiqh, History, Qur'an, Hadith, and Seerah.
Tas-heel-ul-Aqaid (Beliefs Made Easy), for example, deals with articles of faith in gradually increasing depth. The books are marked Tas-heelul Aqaid (1) through (10). All other Tas-heel (Made Easy) series books are organized in a similar fashion. Exercises, worksheets, and illustrations are included.
We are not aware of any other textbook package that can even come close to these books in clarity, authenticity, breath of coverage, and suitability for the children. The books on Akhlaq and Adab cover Islamic morals, manners, and etiquettes in such a manner that they can go a long way in inculcating good morals and manners in the children.
The books on Aqaid (beliefs) also handle the subject very thoroughly so that those who benefit from them, Insha-Allah, would not encounter the confusions one finds commonly among the western educated Muslims today.
While all material is good, the one on history is exceptional. It is lucid, focused, and well presented. Even difficult subjects like the earlier internecine wars have been handled expertly. In fact, while these books are meant for young Muslims, they could be of tremendous benefit to the adults also.
We enthusiastically recommend that these books be used in the full time Islamic Schools, weekend schools, as well as Islamic home-schools.
