Meet a Madrassah student

Maryam - Age 11

Maryam has been a student at Green Lane Masjid Madrassah since the age of 5. She shares her experience of online madrassah via the zoom classes, the topics she has learnt about and what the teachers are like:

“We learn about the Prophets, the day of judgement, signs that will come near to the day of judgement, five pillars of Islam and the six pillars of emaan.”


"Having the Madrassah online has enabled my son to improve his learning further, which I didn't think was possible. It has the feel of 1-1 learning and the content is structured appropriately."

He expresses that he feels as though the teachers at Green Lane Masjid can converse with the children in the language they understand and can relate to them.  He comments that the madrassah teaches the children about  characteristics they should imitate and emulate from the Quran, sunnah and stories of the companions.
