Islamic Education

Our curriculum is designed to ensure that all the course work fits into a specific theme of character reformation. We believe that character reformation is the key to not only working with current or formerly incarcerated men and women, but also to their eventual release and reintegration into the greater society.

Our curriculum incorporates a significant amount of spiritual and behavioral modification geared towards developing qualities which increase accountability for actions. These components of our curriculum are thoroughly reinforced throughout all the courses. One of the primary areas of focus is understanding and changing the criminal personality.  To inherit their contributory role in society, the incarcerated must develop emotionally, mentally, spiritually, and socially. Our curriculum offers a methodical development in all these phases.

The three core components of the program are:

1) Sound Islamic knowledge

2) Realization of the prisoner’s experience

3) Recognition of the security concerns in dealing with prisoners
