Tahir Academy is the home of Atfal and Nasirat. It’s a Sunday school for children between the ages of 5 and 15. We want Ahmadi children to be role models, not followers, among their peers. This is possible once children are capable to defend their faith with argument and logic.
Here are its key areas of focus:
- Purpose of creation of life and the tools required to achieve this purpose.
- Understand the rights of Almighty God and the rights of human beings.
- Understand purpose of religion and why there are so many religions in the world. Focus on Islamic history and revival of Islam through Promised Messiah (as)
- How to live a balanced life as law abiding citizens of the country and the world at large.
If you have any questions, read the answers to our frequently asked questions here (PDF). Not answered there? Ask on our forums. You can find out more about Tahir Academy from the Jama’ats where the education model has been implemented, including Los Angeles, Baltimore and New York. We’ve compiled some of the resources they’ve used here, and you can find their responses to our survey here.
