Al Asr Educational Institute opened its doors to the public in January 2001 and was founded by the late Abdul Majid Omar (B.Sc) who was the leader of the Quran Study Group.
The transformational potential of the Quran motivated the Quran Study Group to initiate an Islamic school based on Quranic principles that would provide affordable quality education for the community.
The school has grown from strength to strength with one unit per grade from Grade RR to Grade 12. At present the School comprises of 360 learners 35 teachers and 9 supporting staff.
“ …Teach them the Book and the Wisdom…”
The vision of Al-Asr is to create a Quranic generation of people who would act out the principals laid down by the Quran to be beneficial to society.
The vision of Al-Asr is unique in a sense that the name of school was sourced from the Quran in Chapter 103 - Al Asr: The Passing of Time
“By (the Token of)
Time (through the Ages),
Verily Man is in loss
Except such as have Faith, and do righteous deeds, and join together in the Mutual teaching of truth, and of patience and constancy.”
Our mission is to:
