- So the existing books (‘I Love Islam’ & ‘Learning Series’ series) will not be taught anymore in the UAE.

- The Curriculum comprises of Six Elements called ‘Themes and Standards of the Islamic Education Curriculum as described graphically in this picture:
- PS: 15 November 2017: As new books have been introduced in the UAE, we are awaiting for the new and updated Syllabus. I will upload the new syllabus as and when I receive the official communication, inshaaAllah.
- PS: In the first week of October, we received a new syllabus through unofficial channel, a glance at which reveals that the new books are in the pipeline. As for now, there is no need to panic as it will be implemented in a phased manner (and not necessarily during the current academic year)
