“The best among you are those who learn the Qur’an and teach it” [Sahih Bukhari]

Al Qalam Board of Education® was established for the sake of Allah as an institution striving to impart the true knowledge of Islam through the authentic sources.  It is the vision of the trust to provide authentic knowledge of the Qur’an and Sunnah & also to inculcate the best character in our students to succeed in this world and moreover in the hereafter. I believe this can be achieved with an adequate system of professional teaching & easy learning processes.

Alhamdulillah, this is the seventh successive year of the institution – solely by the Grace of the Almighty and we’re continuing to grow with each passing year. Al Qalam Board of Education® has been able to provide the required environment and opportunity for the ones who seek the true knowledge with zeal and enthusiasm. We’ve Alhamdulillah practicing much strategies & efforts to increase the existing standards of the institutions under the trust. While striving for it, equal amount of agony have been taken to facilitate the innovative methods of teaching and learning.

I’m grateful to Allah for whatever He has blessed this institution with. I take to this opportunity to acknowledge the cooperation and dedication of all our faculty members and the parent community. I strongly believe that if our education system & the parent community are together in the similar manner, we can bring forth a generation of balanced personalities. I appeal to the entire Al Qalam family – teachers, students & the parents to keep supporting us in the journey to achieve the noble vision and finally attain Allah’s mercy.

May Allah bless this institution to achieve its goal and I ask for His blessing to overcome the shortcomings. May He bless all the individuals who have contributed to this institution with their abilities.

Fa Jazakallahumma Khairan
