Balham & Tooting Madressa

Balham Mosque & Tooting Islamic Centre both provide evening Islamic classes to children from the ages of 5-18 on Monday - Friday from 5pm - 7pm.

Our aim is to provide children with a comprehensive Islamic education, which will complement and enhance their secular education.

Admissions and general enquiries can be directed to the Madressa office which is open from 5-7pm Monday-Friday.

It works at providing Muslim children with extensive Islamic education in order for them to apply, further their understanding and share this knowledge with the wider community.

We teach the recitation of the Holy Qur’an, Surahs (Chapters of the Qur'an), Dua’s (Supplications), Seeratun Nabee (The Life of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)), Fiqhul Islam (Elementary level of Cleanliness, Prayer, etc), Islamic History, Tajweed (Method of recitation of the Holy Qur'an), Hifz (Memorisation of the Holy Qur'an) and A’alim Classes.

There are also several events that are held within the Madressa in order for children to be able to share what they have learnt such as Mosque assemblies; in which children get to perform recitations, storytelling, poetry and plays. We have an Annual Fundraising event that gives students a fantastic opportunity interact with their family and friends and the local community as a whole.

Large scale entertainment and recreational activities are provided such as food stalls, rides, archery, go-karting, wrestling, judo. We also have an Annual Jalsah (Awards ceremony) devoted simply to honour the attainment of our children after their annual examinations and celebrate the talent on Muslim children.
