What is Tarbiyah?

`Tarbiyah` is an Arabic word that means development, increase, growth, and loftiness. In Islam it means the development and the training of people in various aspects. At Al-Hijrah Tarbiyah refers to the systematic development and training of our pupils in the light of Islamic teachings. It is a continuous and comprehensive process of developing all aspects of our pupils’ character and personality, i.e. spiritual, intellectual, moral, social and physical aspects.

The real aim of Tarbiyah is to develop Taqwa and to put all members of Al-Hijrah school on the path of constant self purification, self-correction and self-development and instill in them the passion for truth, righteousness, justice and respect for others. The focus of Tarbiyah is to train pupils who are distinguished, strive for excellence, are self-motivated, conduct a balance life, live in peace with themselves and their environment, be equipped with the necessary knowledge, understanding, and skills to make difference in the society by taking an active role in the reform process that seeks to make the betterment of our community, our country and the entire world. The full impact of Tarbiyah is truly realised when parents, pupils, staff and other stakeholders all work cohesively together.
