Teaching material by educators, for educators.
As teachers, we know what it’s like to feel defeated by outdated textbooks (or no books at all), disengaged students, tough faith questions, and little to no support. So we created Yaqeen Curriculum™ to change that. It’s packed with everything you need, designed by educators and backed by scholars.
What’s special about it?
Principles of faith
In our units on principles of faith, we cover the fundamental truths in Islam that serve as our foundation for being Muslim. Through these units, we hope to cultivate a God-centered worldview that approaches contemporary debates and topics through a critical and thoughtful engagement with revelation.
Faith in action
In our units on faith in action, we move beyond the scope of the mind and into the realm of practice. In these units, students are taught the foundational rituals of Islam, such as the five pillars, in order to cultivate a meaningful relationship with God.
The everyday ethics of life
The everyday ethics of life units cover a wide range of relevant topics on how to carry out our day-to-day lives. In these units, we approach contemporary issues and themes in light of the Islamic tradition.
