Minhaj Weekend Learning Academy (MWLA)


The Minhaj Weekend Learning Academy (MWLA) is founded on the belief that proper knowledge and regular practice help to create the Taqwa (Piety / Fear) of Allah Subhan Wa Ta’Ala in a Muslim’s heart. This coupled with the love of Rasoolullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam leads to Allah Subhan Wa Ta’Ala’s favors in this life, and ultimately to the most desired destination of the Hereafter, i.e., Paradise.

MWLA is committed to leading our next generation on the true path of Islam through the Holy Qur’an and the example of our Beloved Holy Prophet Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam. It has a unique curriculum that has been especially designed for children in our community in order to increase their knowledge and practice of traditional Islam.
