Islamic Principles

Islamic principles are best taught to children through the concept of ‘leading by example’. Staff members at New Madinah College understand that students are watching and are being influenced by the behaviour of their instructors. By leading the way and walking the talk teachers and staff will become the people students want to be like and follow.

We want to instil in students the Islamic principles of having good character and behaviour. In Islam belief and good actions go hand in hand. In fact, performing good actions with sincerity is proof of having belief in the heart. This is why the Holy Quran refers to true Muslims as “those who believe and do good deeds”. The Quran and Sunnah both emphasise the point that the best of people are those who show the best behaviour towards others.
