The Story

Assalamu Alaykum! 

Dear Community Member,

Ever since Al-Furqan Academy was established back in 1997, it relied on the support and generous contributions of the Jacksonville Muslim community members to grow throughout the years. Since then, our full time Islamic school has grown so much! Starting in a few small classrooms in the Masjid almost 2 decades ago with just a few students, Al-Furqan Academy has now grown to have a total of about 150 students in pre-kindergarten, elementary, and middle school! This year has been an exciting year for our school, as we are currently going through the process to get the whole school accredited Insha Allah! We have a diverse team of highly qualified teachers, a rigorous curriculum that is aligned with the Florida State Standards, and a mission that is driven by the pure teachings of Islam! 

As you may know, private schools don't receive any substantial funding from the government the same way public schools do. Therefore, almost every school out there tries to raise some additional funds to support its operations every year. While the funds that are collected from tuition are usually used to cover the basic operational expenses of the school such as salaries and books, drives that aim to raise additional funding from donations usually go a long way in helping further develop the school. These funds help the school purchase additional resources and equipment, such as laptops for students to use, projectors for teachers, PE equipment, Art supplies, supplemental Math and Reading programs for students such as RAZ-Kids, professional development workshops for the staff and teachers, designing and printing marketing materials for the school, and other tools and programs that help the school excel further in providing a holistic educational experience for our students. 

It is our hope that you would support this fund drive for operational expenses in any way you can, and that you encourage others to do so as well. Every dollar counts, as every dollar that you spend to support our Islamic school in its mission to educate our youth will be highly rewarded by Allah swt in the dunya and akhirah! 

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, "When a man dies, his deeds come to an end except for three things: Sadaqah Jariyah (ceaseless charity); a knowledge which is beneficial, or a virtuous descendant who prays for him (for the deceased)."  
[Muslim].
{The example of those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah is like a seed [of grain] which grows seven spikes; in each spike is a hundred grains. And Allah multiplies [His reward] for whom He wills. And Allah is all-Encompassing and Knowing}  [2:261]
Jazakum Allahu khairan, 
Assalamu alaykum!
