Q&A

Outline of Safar Publications:
 
Safar Publications is part of Safar Academy Trust, an Islamic supplementary school with branches across the South East of the UK founded by Shaykh Hasan Ali in 1998. Safar Publications is a growing publishing arm of the trust, and through this dedicated and distinct service, we aim to create the best and most innovative tools to meet the learning needs of today’s students, particularly in Islamic education.

Our work focuses on two key areas: creating the best teaching tools and resources and providing the best support to all the users of our curriculum. Our growing range of services includes syllabi, teaching resources, teacher training and development, curriculum implementation help, administrative support and continued development of institutions and leaders in our communities. We do this with the vision of making learning and teaching engaging, effective and innovative.
