  • ISLAMIC EDUCATION is the name of the New Books published & distributed by the Ministry of Education, UAE.
  • These books are supplied through the Ministry’s official outlet.  
  • Many Schools in UAE started teaching from the new books, some from the 2nd Term of the academic year 2017-18 and some (CBSE board) from 2018-19.
  • From 2018-19, all schools in Dubai and other Emirates WILL HAVE TO COMPULSORILY TEACH from these newly introduced books.
  • Teaching of I Love Islam and Learning Islam books have become a thing of the past.
  • For MoE books, Schools must place their requirement through MoE’s Electronic Store. For info, Call Center: 04-5593466 or E-mail address:


Info about old curriculum:

  • Islamic Studies Text Books (for ISLAMIC EDUCATION ‘B’) approved by the Ministry of Education, U.A.E (until 2016-17)                                                                          * For Grade 1 to 6 – I LOVE ISLAM    * For Grade 7 to 12 – LEARNING ISLAM

Year 1         Year 2            Year 3                Year 4                Year 5                 Year 6

  • The books are published by North America-based Islamic Services Foundation.
  • A cursory glance about the books can be had from the links to the Publisher’s website: 1. I Love Islam Series (Primary) 2. Learning Islam Series (Secondary)
  • Syllabus details are given here
  • Even though New Editions of Learning Islam Series (for Grade 7 to 12) have come out in the market, they are yet to be approved by the Ministry as the old syllabus (which is based on old editions) still holds good.
  • A cursory glance of the books comparison shows a vast difference between the content in the old and new books!

    • Wa alaikumus salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu.
      Thank you for your request and du’aa. May Allah accept your du’aa, aameen.
      Dear sir, Please contact local Book Distributors to contact the publisher directly.

  2. Dear Sir,
    Assalamu Alaikum varahmathullah, are there any Power point presentation of any lessons regarding the book of I Love Islam and learning Islam? I use your PPT of Islamic studies text books. It was a great work and Allah may give you reward for this.
    With thanks and regards

    • Do you have official communication from the Ministry?
      As of now, it is I Love Islam series for Year 1 to 6, and Learning Islam series for Year 7 to 12.

  3. i cannot find I love Islam book 6, and learning Islam book 4,5,6 — where can i get the textbook and the workbook/worksheet?

  4. Asslamu Alikum dears…

    Is there any changes in the syllabus for the acadamic year 2015-2016. As I have noted the new book learning islam has been splitted in to six serial… If so please share the new syllabus

    • Wa alaikumus salam wa rahmatullah
      As of now, the existing syllabus holds good.
      If there is any change, it will be updated in this blog, inshaaallah.

  5. respected sir.
    sir i need your help to made Self-Evaluation form Islamic studies .school inspection is there school gave me this work .i am very upset don’t know how can made .please help me .Allah bless u

  6. Dear all,
    Could you please advise regarding the Islamic 2 curriculum?
    I’m covering Islamic 2 classes from year 7 to 12 (British system). Unfortunately, the department does not have solid resources that could develop the students’ learning and understanding of Islam. At the moment the children are using the “Learning Islam” textbooks as following:
    Year 7 Level 1
    Year 8 Level 2
    Year 9 Level 3
    Year 10 Level 4
    Year 11 Level 5
    Year 12 Level 6
    According to my research, the MOE curriculum for years 2012/13 states that students use books upto level 3.
    I appreciate your advice

    • Ignore the 2012/13 syllabus which is non-implementable due to the introduction of new editions.
      Kindly follow the new books Level 1 to 6 as stated by you, and wait for the new syllabus, InshaaAllah.
      We all are having the same problems. Hopefully the ministry will solve the issue by sending the updated syllabus at the earliest, InshaaAllah.

      • Thank you. However, my point is the exam topics as ADEC’s letter states units D, E and A46. I agree the new one, level 6, makes more sense to me. However, nothing is official to prove that we’re on the right track. Could you please send me any official letters from ADEC that could clear this path.

        • Dear sister/brother,
          I think you are based in Al Ain/Abu Dhabi.
          We in Sharjah/Dubai do not get direct communication from ADEC.
          Ours is a different zone.
          Syllabus is made by the MOE and made available through respective zones in all the emirates.

          • Im a brother 😃True. I just thought someone on the blog who is based in Abu Dhabi could help. It’s my great pleasure to communicate with you. The blog is great resource. I appreciate everybody’s hard work in making this happen the way it is. Thank you

            • Thank you so much and Jazakallahu Khayra, dear brother.
              Yes, it is a pleasure for me too to communicate with you and all others who teach this beautiful subject.
              Incidentally, after your comment, just after Isha Salah, I got soft copies of the new portion from a teacher who works in a Abu Dhabi school.
              She says she got it from ADEC. Unfortunately i found lots of discrepancies in the new syllabus as there is conflict between Unit and respective chapters.
              I have replied that teacher to get it confirmed as to the source of the soft copies.
              InshaaAllah will let you know once this is done.
              Baarakallaahu Feekum.

  7. Asslamu Alikum brother….

    Is there any changes in the syllabus for the acadamic year 2016-2017. As I have noted the new book learning islam has been splitted in to six serial… If so please share the new syllabus

    • Wa alaikumus salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu.
      The problem of books is existing since almost three years!
      We do not have any news about the syllabus for the year 2016-17.
      Will definitely share once I get to know about it inshaaAllah.

      Till now we have no news of Teacher’s Guide.
      As Arabic Speakers do have a Guide Book, we hope that there is one for Non-Arabic speakers too, inshaaAllah.
      Hope they will be made available soon by the MoE, InshaaAllah.

  10. I roughly just wen through the new Islamic Ministry’s book which you have uploaded here,but found many typing and grammatical errors in English in first lesson itself. If possible then I request you to drive the attention of authorities before publishing it.
    Jazakumullah khaira

    • I was roughly going through the Grade 1 new Islamic Ministry’s book which you have uploaded here,there are many typing and grammatical errors in English in first lesson itself. If possible please drive the authorities attention so they may do the correction before publishing it.

      • AssalamuAlaykum brother Moqeet hope you are doing well in sha Allah I just want to ask about Khada test for Islamic Studies Teachers as now I am working in Abu Dhabi and soon will move to Dubai in sha Allah your guidance will be appreciated. Note: I am working in an international school and I have approval from ADEK but is it mandatory to give test again in KHADA?

        Thanks best regards Uzma Tabassum

          Yes, sister. It is necessary to appear for the KHDA test if you are planning to move to Dubai.

    Dear Mr. Muqeet, Masha Allah you are doing a fabulous Job through your website, it is indeed sadqah jariah for you In sha Allah. as you know the transformation from I love to Islam to these New Islamic Education books are becoming bit difficult specially in Dubai and syllabus looks so lengthy as well. we request to you if come across teacher’s guide for these book please do let as know.

    • wa alaikumus salam wa rahmatullah.
      Dear Mr. Sabir Ali, Thank you for your comment and your request.
      We all are struggling with the new books but I assure you once you start it is not very difficult as people think otherwise. Of course a little bit of hard work is necessary to come to terms with the changed curriculum, otherwise everything is fine.
      About teachers’ guide, please be informed that nobody is going to make it. It is only we teachers who have do it.
      If you know Arabic and can manage with it, then there are Teachers’ Guides available in Arabic, alhamdulillaah.

    • Wa alaikumus salam wa rahmatullah.
      Please know that all books here are scanned by different teachers taking time and effort and spending money for that. Books are not easily coming, brother. If you don’t find any book, have sabr inshaaAllah. It will be uploaded when it is done, inshaaAllah.
