Who We are
that is committed towards uplifting the education landscape in the region.
Madrasah Irsyad was a forgotten entity that was striving to find relevance within a modern city state. It pursued to adopt the best practices in the world-class Singapore education system while remaining true to its religious roots. Alhamdulillah, its endeavour was recognized in the international Journal as it was branded the “Future of Islamic education” by Muslim pedagogues.
The recognition was a realization that there are many Islamic schools out there which are similarly going through their own soul searching and looking for a model to emulate. This sets out a noble cause within Irsyad to share its experience with the larger Muslim ummah. Irsyad formed a small team in 2008 and started to slowly ‘export’ its experience and model to the region.
Indeed, the Muslim ummah is in dire need of a reformation in its education system. It was time for the sharing of Irsyad’s experience be made a strategic mission. Irsyad’s management decided to setup Irsyad Trust as a non-profit entity to enhance the export of Irsyad’s experience and expertise. We actively seek partners to create more impact and difference in our work.
