We are here because we want to establish an institution. A place where whoever comes will feel empowered, safe, and challenged to be proactive. This translates to teaching our children through the lens of what the Prophet Muhammad (s) did – modeling his characteristics and creating an environment for excellence in everything.
We are here because we know that the people around us – the teachers, the parents, the volunteers, friends of AFA, and especially the students – are in this for the same reason, and with the same passion. We all want to make big ripples through small actions and incremental but sustainable changes.
We are here because the global community needs our determination; we can build a model of cooperation and positivity. We will hold fast to our mission.
Our “why” is important because what we've built, with the mercy of Allah(s), is different and special. We have built something that stands on its own because we all care passionately, these children are a priority for us.
We ask Allah (s) to guide us, to protect us, to embrace us and to purify our hearts. Ameen.
