Who We Are?

Our Mission

“Love of Allah (SWT) in every soul”. 

Ta’leem Academy is created to teach Qu’ranic Arabic (𝘍𝘶𝘴𝘴𝘢𝘩) and to instill Islamic teachings according to the Quran & Sunnah in the children and youth of the community.

Our goal is to foster and nurture the love of Allah (swt) in our community’s young Muslims and teach them about the beauty and knowledge of Islam.

Our History

Ta’leem Academy was established in 2015 by Sr. Nargis Salman. The goal of the organization is to provide convenient and affordable Islamic education options for parents. She has been a certified Canadian teacher for over 20 years. She works with other teachers to provide  Islamic education in hopes of creating strong Muslims for our community. We went from a single classroom to having a multiclass room environment. All our teachers have the experience and the qualifications to provide the best educational experience for the children.

Our Core Values

We strive to accommodate each child and to follow these values everyday. All teachers are dedicated, and they hold themselves accountable to Allah (SWT) for their work.
  • To make the Deen easy to practice in our daily life
  • To help children adapt the good from their environment
  • To create an environment where students feel comfortable expressing themselves
  • To give the correct options to students
  • To let each child know that Allah loves you

A mother of four, who’s kids are at different levels in Ta’leem Academy, I have experienced all 4 levels at once. Ta’leem Academy has given my children so much. Good Islamic base, extra curricular activities and above all strong Islamic character building.
Sr. Nargis and all the teachers are doing an excellent job for our kids as well as for parents too as they are always available for us at time of need.
All I can say is, may Allah SWT reward Ms. Nargis for all the hard work, dedication and efforts she puts into bring this weekend school where our children are getting good Islamic education.
