Our Mission

Founded by Markazi Imam Bargah Al-Murtaza, the Sunday School is committed to providing Islamic education to children of the Greater Houston Muslim  community. The Sunday School is dedicated to nurturing spiritual growth and developing God consciousness through the teachings of Ahlulbayt  (a.s) and the Qur’an.

Our Vision

The Sunday School aims to develop, for its students, self-assurance as American Muslims with a commitment to honoring family, community involvement, and respecting others. The Sunday School strives to instill ethical values in the students towards becoming productive and responsible members of our society.

Our Goals

  • Facilitate students' learning of Islamic history, beliefs, morals and jurisprudence.
  • Provide instruction for students in recitation of Quran by familiarizing them with Arabic script and recitation rules; promote understanding of Quranic Arabic by focusing on key, repetitive vocabulary; practice memorization of chapters from the Quran.
  • Help students to connect with, and hopefully create a lifetime relationship with, the Quran and Ahlulbayt by illuminating how their teachings apply to daily life.
  • Utilize modern teaching strategies and techniques to help students achieve attainable goals in understanding Islamic teachings and implementing them into their lives.
