Meet our Students
Praise be to Allah for the second year, Mirage Academy opened its doors to new and returning students who are eager to expand their knowledge of Islam and start on a path to inner wisdom and self-discovery. This year, we’ve welcomed one new student and five returning students who are pursuing an Islamic education. The students are looking forward to memorizing the Quran, mastering Tajweed, improving their Arabic skills and engaging in community service.
First Week of Qur'an Memorization
When asked about their hopes for the upcoming school year, many of the young men expressed their desire to deepen their knowledge of Islamic values and to develop as community leaders. Our staff and administrators are so pleased with the zeal of our new and returning students. With Allah's help, we anticipate providing the guidance, knowledge, and encouragement to challenge and inspire these promising young students throughout this phase of their spiritual journey.
A Unique Learning Experience
As part of Mirage Academy’s proprietary MUFTI (Mastery and Understanding for Future Teaching and Implementation) methodology, all of the students participate in character-developing activities that promote spiritual and personal wellness, self-awareness, and leadership skills.
Learning the Prophetic Trade
During the first week of school, our students spent the day at BRIDGES USA, an organization focusing on developing young community leaders through workshops, fellowships, and team-building programs. At the BRIDGES center in downtown Memphis, our students encouraged each other through an obstacle course complete with rock-climbing walls, rope courses, and problem solving exercises.
Through these fun and engaging activities, the students learned to communicate effectively and tackle challenges as a team. Allah willing as the school year progresses, we are sure to see the connections made during this rewarding workshop evolve into camaraderie/fellowship and solidarity amongst the students .
By Allah's Mercy Our Work Is Made Possible by You
The beginning of his journey to memorize Qur'an
This year, Mirage Academy accomplished its goal of raising over $60,000 to fund tuition costs for four students this school year. On behalf of our program and our wonderfully-talented students. We would like to send a heartfelt thank you to all of our generous donors who have graciously contributed to our cause. Allah willing keep us in mind, heart and prayer as we start preparing to select the next cohort of students.
