II. Islamic Studies
Islamic Studies for Sunday School uses various levels of books from the Islamic Studies Weekend Series for each level taught at the school. The first two grade levels in school correspond to the first two level of books from the Weekend series. These series are designed to work with an annual curriculum in Sunday Sessions. To see samples, please visit here. Each Sunday, we have Qur'an from 10am to 11:30am and after a 30m snack break, we have Islamic Studies from 12pm to 1pm.
We also guide students in all levels through Salaat and encourage to join in during prayer times that coincide with school times.
If you have any further questions about the curriculum, please contact us at education@sammamishmosque. com.
