Grade One: At this level students are introduced to Islam through the shahaadah (testimony of faith). They learn appropriate care of the Quraan and engage in memorization and recitation of surahs from Surah at-Teen to Surah al-Humazah. The life of Prophet Muhammad is introduced to them. They learn the basics of cleanliness and ablution along with the propler performace of prayer. The course ends with lessons on personal hygiene, respect for parents and respect for the property of others. The Students Textbook contains the subject text of the lessons, exercises as well as activities. The Activity Book, however, engages the student in additional activities on the same lessons dealt with in the Students Textbook. The difference is that the activities in the Activity Book are more analysis - and - synthesis based, than simple recall type activities. There is also a more practical aspect aligned to activities in the Activity Book.
