Greetings from Managing Director
Praise be to Allah S.W.T. May His peace and blessings be upon our Prophet and Messenger Muhammad S.A.W, his family and those who follow Him in goodness until the day of judgment.
It is a pleasure to welcome you to the Khalifa IMS Website.
Studying at school is part of a lifelong journey that begins with Allah SWT, for Allah SWT and ends with Allah SWT. When we travel, we try as much as possible to become a better person and be useful for ourselves, for our families, for our country and so that when we return to Allah SWT, we have sufficient provision of pious deeds.
Allah SWT says in the Qur’an Surah Al Baqarah : 155:
“And We will most certainly try you with somewhat of fear and hunger and loss of property and lives and fruits; and give good news to the patient.” (2:155)
However, we must believe that with the grace of Allah SWT and with the support of all Khalifa IMS residents, we are able to conquer all challenges because we are tested by Allah SWT according to our capacity.
“Allah does not impose upon any soul a duty but to the extent of its ability.” (2:286)
As living beings, we all go through a process. We need to always try our best to be better and more obedient. We should always live life with the existing reality. The most important thing is that we need to have a clear purpose in life, namely: Worshiping the Creator, not worshiping creatures.
Our highest achievement in life in this world is to live happily in this world and when we return to Allah SWT, we enter heaven. We only live once. Regret is then useless. The right thing to do is to prepare our provisions for the welfare of life in this world and the hereafter.
For the provision of the hereafter, let us always try to involve Allah SWT in every activity we do and make Allah SWT the only reason for us to do everything. We must always remember:
Wherever we are and with whom we are together;
No matter how confusing the words others say;
No matter how confusing the books we read;
No matter how confusing the movies we watch are;
No matter how confusing the TV Shows we watch;
However misleading the words of influential people may be;
No matter how difficult life is;
Miraculously there is always guidance and answers in the Qur’an and Hadith when we use them as a guide for our lives. Problems will only arise when we don’t stick to the Quran and Hadith. Let’s go through the same process to understand and apply the Qur’an and Hadith in our daily lives so that our mindset is in accordance with the Qur’an and our hearts are always connected to Allah SWT on this journey.
Our first and foremost priority is to support all students in their learning journey.
We are grateful and happy that so many students have started their educational journey at our school to become better persons. Trust from parents, passion to learn from our teachers and education staff and the will of Allah SWT are three recipes that will help us achieve the vision and mission of Khalifa IMS.
