Volunteer Teaching Aides

Why Volunteer At Marifah School?

At Marifah School, volunteering as a teaching aide is not just an opportunity to contribute to the education of young minds but also a chance to be part of a vibrant community committed to Islamic values. By offering your time and skills, you become an integral part of shaping the future generation, gaining hands-on experience, and building lasting connections within our school family. Volunteering is not merely a selfless act but an investment in personal growth and community support.

The concept of charity and good deeds, including volunteering, is well-established in Islam. The Hadith literature contains numerous statements attributed to Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) encouraging acts of kindness, charity, and helping others. One commonly cited principle is the idea that even a small act of kindness can be considered charity. Scholars and Islamic teachings often emphasize the value of community service and volunteering as a means of helping others and earning spiritual rewards.
