Teaching the Islamic sciences by bridging the traditional and modern approach.
What Parents are Saying
Salih D. R. Erschen, USA
"Bismillah... Our children have been studying Qur'an and have enjoyed Aqidah, Seerah, and Arabic courses. They often share with enthusiasm the lessons that they have covered with Ustadh Ismail. We are thankful to Allah for the positive blessings our children have gained through their connection with the online academy."
Tradition Meets Modernity
Rawdah provides an enriched learning environment for Muslim teens (13-19) to learn about Islam, develop critical thinking skills, and enlighten their hearts. Our youth face ideologies that promote atheism, LGBTQ, materialism, evolution, among others. Our program is designed to illuminate their context with the light of knowledge.
Our structured curriculum includes classes on faith, practice, history, character, lives of the Prophets, Hadith, Tafsir, and much more.
Rawdah is for teens who are either homeschooled or want to supplement their secular education with a strong foundation in Islamic learning.
A Structured Curriculum
Our curriculum is curated for Muslim teens in the west. Subjects follow classical texts, yet are accompanied with a relevant explanation. Upon the completion of a subject, students receive a personal certificate.
Students are able to log in to the live lessons from anywhere in the world. The online platform includes downloadable textbooks, a Q&A messaging section, and quizzes. In person retreats are held in the summer (TBA).
Live Weekly Q&A's
A live one hour meeting is held online each week for Q&A's, discussions, and to hangout with classmates and the Ustadh.
