Safar Publications is part of Safar Academy Trust, an Islamic supplementary school with branches across the South East of the UK founded by Shaykh Hasan Ali in 1998. Safar Publications is a growing publishing arm of the trust, and through this dedicated and distinct service, we aim to create the best and most innovative tools to meet the learning needs of today’s students, particularly in Islamic education.
Our work focuses on two key areas: creating the best teaching tools and resources and providing the best support to all the users of our curriculum. Our growing range of services includes syllabi, teaching resources, teacher training and development, curriculum implementation help, administrative support and continued development of institutions and leaders in our communities. We do this with the vision of making learning and teaching engaging, effective and innovative.
A values-based approach
Safar Publications provides a robust and comprehensive curriculum to equip learners with the necessary knowledge and tools to develop a deep-rooted love and relationship with Islam. Through learning, understanding and embodying the Quran and Sunnah, users of our curriculum learn to fulfil their religious rites and duties in an informed manner. And through a focus on personal development, they grow to make moral choices and decisions as confident Muslims living in a globalised and modern world.
Our curriculum and extensive teacher support services privilege the art of learning and teaching in a holistic, contextual and student-centred manner. Furthermore, the curriculum includes the learning of key Muslim values, skills and attitudes, such as God-consciousness, respect, tolerance and mercy for all life. It also aims to give learners the skills to live and build healthy relationships with others in furthering the common good. Through such a values-based approach, our learners can grow to realise their full potential and play an active role as Muslims in their communities and wider society.
