There are 2 aspects to the study of Islam: Taleem and Tarbiyyah.


Taleem refers to the knowledge of Islam and information viz Aqeedah, Fiqh, Seerah, Tafsir, Hadith, etc. At the school all these branches of Islamic knowledge are taught by our qualified Ulema and Alimah using the methodology and materials suited for each particular age group. Alhamdulillah, learners enjoy and understand their lessons.


Tarbiyyah refers to the nurturing of the personality and spiritual development viz Love of ALLAH and Nabi SAW, promoting good and forbidding evil, developing a love for following the command of ALLAH and the Sunnah, displaying good morals and values (respect, greeting, humility, trust, etc). Tarbiyyah Is a parental / family responsibility which the child develops through interaction within the home with family, neighbours and friends and requires effort and duas. Tarbiyyah comes from within the home-culture and the value-system of the family:

  • What is the status of ALLAH and Nabi SAW and the Sunnah in my home?
  • How do we teach humility in the home?
  • In what tone do we talk to people?
  • What are our values? What is it that we do not and will not compromise on?
  • Are we consistent with our Islamic belief and practices.

    The future of our children’s Iman is in the parental responsibility of Tarbiyyah which cannot be transferred or out-sourced. May ALLAH make it possible for us to fulfil this responsibility.

Alhamdulillah, Al Falaah College has been at the forefront of the establishment of GAIS, an association which membership spans across over 30 countries representing millions of learners from mainly Muslim minority countries. Mr Z. Ahmed, the Principal of our High School has been the main motivator for the formation of GAIS and currently serves as the Chair of GAIS. Alhamdulillah, AFC has benefitted through this association with access and information to best practice from Muslim schools globally. We are very honoured and proud to have Mr Ahmed as the Chair of GAIS. May ALLAH guide him and his executive to lead GAIS to its vision and mission.

Toastmasters has been a transformative journey for us which started in March, providing us with a platform to enhance our communication and leadership skills. From the moment we stepped into the welcoming environment, we were met with a supportive community that encouraged growth and self-improvement. Through regular speeches, constructive evaluations and impromptu debates and speeches, we gained confidence in expressing ourselves articulately and connecting with audiences.

Toastmasters has truly been a remarkable experience, fostering personal growth, and unlocking our potential to excel in public speaking and leadership.  The culmination of our efforts was recognised at our Toastmasters graduation on the 1 June resulting in the top two students of each category to take part in the inter school contest later this year.

The AFC Physical Sciences department hosted its first-ever Quiz on Saturday, May 4th, 2024, welcoming participants from Grades 7 to 12. 

Fifteen learners chose to participate, while others contributed as ambassadors, assisting in organisation, marketing, and general tasks, earning community service points in the process. 

Teams were composed of learners across different grades and who engaged in various quiz rounds to showcase their knowledge. 

The competition was intense and nail-biting, but as usual we can have only one team as the winners. 

 The winning team-

Aaisha Haffejee Gr7D; Naseeha Omar (9D); Ahmed Joosab (10A); Deeyana Randeree (11C) and Faatima Asmal (11C)

emerged victorious by a narrow margin of two points. MashaAllah!

Congratulations to ALL contestants, ambassadors, and audience members for their participation.
