Mission, Vision, Beliefs & Values


Calgary Islamic School strives to develop an enriched learning community that promotes academic achievement, leadership, and Islamic values.


To build and maintain a learning community that produces leaders through faith, knowledge, and ingenuity.


We believe that God is One in being without partner, Unique without peer, Ultimate without opposite, Alone without equal. He is One, Pre-Eternal, Beginninglessly uncreated; Everlastingly abiding, Unceasingly existent, Eternally limitless; the Ever Self-Subsisting through whom all else subsists, Ever-Enduring without end. He is, was and ever will be possessed of all attributes of Majesty, Unannihilated by dissolution or separation through the passage of eons or terminus of interims. He is the First and Last, the Outward and Inward, and He has knowledge of everything [Quran 57:3].

He is not a body with a form, or a limitary quantitative substance. He does not resemble bodies in quantifiability or divisibility, or in being a substance or qualified by substance, or being an accident or qualified by accidents.   He does not resemble anything that exists, nor does anything that exist resemble Him. There is nothing whatsoever like unto Him [Quran 42:11].

We believe that God, Most High, sent Muhammad (God bless him and give him peace), to deliver His inspired message to the entire world. God has favoured him above all other Prophets and made him the highest of mankind.

We believe that acquiring knowledge is a foundational attribute of the human being and that every student has the capacity to learn and grow. We believe that teaching is an essential attribute of our Prophet Muhammad (God bless him and give him peace), and as such, our teachers follow in his footsteps, are cognizant of their professional role, religious responsibility and spiritual significance to students, staff and the school.
