    Integrating Social Justice in Islamic Education

    “…make us righteous leaders”– al-Furqan (25:74)

    “O My servants, I have forbidden oppression for Myself and have made it forbidden amongst you, so do not oppress one another.”  Hadith Kudsi

    Allah will not wrong His servants and will not accept His servants to be wronged. Justice is the foundation of Islam; it encompasses all that we are and all that we do. How do we implement justice? How do we teach justice to our students?

    The ISNA Education Forum Programming Committee invites you to attend the 20th Annual ISNA Education Forum to be held in Rosemont, Illinois on the topic of “Integrating Social Justice in Islamic Education: Ensuring equal access to success for all students, parents, and teachers.”

    Be a part of the most widely attended conference that promotes excellence in Pre-K through 12th-grade education and provides an exceptional experience in professional development, networking, and effective leadership, especially designed for Islamic full-time and weekend schools.
