To establish a learning community of human beings who appreciate and feel connected to G_d’s Will through engaging His creation and who strive to be productive and accountable American and global citizens.
 

Qur'an-guided refers to Clara Mohammed School’s pedagogy, or approach to teaching.  
 

  • The Qur'an appeals to the mind of man (the human being).  There is logic to everything created and Islam appeals to the rational mind of the human person.  It seeks, as other scriptures do, to help the human being make connections that will lead to his reaching his full potential.

 

  • We are speaking of the human being in this sense as a whole.  However, for the individual, it is the same.  The process for developing as a community is the same process for the development of each individual.


Qur'an-guided also refers to how the human being must establish himself as an intellect:
 

  • G_d is the first Teacher and the creation, itself, is the first classroom.

 

  • The universe is always there to involve the human intellect; so learning is continuous throughout the lifetime of the human being.

 

  • The Qur'an is guidance for those who believe in G_d and the Last Day (Day of Judgment).

 

  • It is guidance for those who reverence G_d or have Taqwa (fear of and regard for G_d) meaning they put nothing, no authority, above The Creator of the Heavens and Earth.  

 

  • It is clear guidance that enables us to distinguish true guidance from false guidance  

 

  • It is a form of logic that finds its support in the Creation, itself.

 

  • It is a way of perceiving the creation that demonstrates there is a connection between everything’s origin and its evolution in the world.

 

  • The understanding one gets from the Qur’an is that G_d established the first logic when He made the creation and the Qur’an has the keys for unlocking that logic. Therefore, all logic, all knowledge comes from G_d.  

 

  • Prophet Mohammed is reported to have said that, “G_d has not created anything more excellent than the human brain (intellect)”.
