This module focuses on the dimensions of religious meaning and practical expressions in a community of faith, as understood in the Shia Ismaili and other Muslim traditions. These aspects are approached from a variety of perspectives by exploring the significance and functions of faith, prayer, ritual, devotion and spaces of worship in Muslim contexts. Students are guided to reflect on their own experiences as members of the Ismaili community, while also making reference to other religious traditions. The exploration here is intended to enable young Ismailis to appreciate the significance of their faith and practice as a source of ultimate meaning in their life.
The Institute’s Pre-school Curriculum forms part of the broader programme of Early Childhood Education for Ismaili children.
Ta‘lim is an international programme in religious, moral and cultural education for Ismaili children at the primary level.
