YKI Programs

1. YKI Fityan (Saturdays & Sundays)

Interactive approach classes for youth, 13yrs - 24yrs

FMSA has been conducting weekend religious classes in English tailor made for students between 13 and 24 years old since 2007. Our curriculum covers the five essential areas namely, Aqeedah and Akhlaq, Tauheed, Fiqh, Seerah and Qur’an. Integrated into the classes includes organised holiday activities for our students such as Science Centre Trip, Fiqh Picnic, Talks and camps.


2. YKI Syabab (Saturdays & Sundays)

Classical approach classes for youth, 13yrs – 24yrs

Our Syabab class offers a more classical approach to Islamic learning. Here, we emphasise tahsin and hafazan of the Qur’an and include a monthly usrah session into the curriculum for youth from 13 -24 years old. Through the syabab class, we hope to empower the Muslim teens with a strong and comprehensive knowledge in Islam based on authentic sources of the Quran and Traditions of the Prophet s.a.w. and to develop a complete personality built upon sound Islamic worldview.


3. YKI Iqra & Tahfiz (Weekdays, Saturdays & Sundays)

Beginners, Internediate & Advance classes, 7yrs – 17yrs

Our Iqra class aims to produce a generation that is Quran literate and will focus on the proper reading of the Quran. It will start at the very basic level of reading (Naadhirah) and will progress to the intermediate and finally the advance module, where the emphasis will be Tahfiz (memorization) and Tajwid. The Quran is a modern day miracle that should be taught and learned by our children who will then become inheritors of Paradise.

“The best among you are those who learn and teach the Quran

Potluck Iftar

Picture worth a thousand words ...
Alhamdulillah, the potluck iftar for YKI parents, teachers and students was for the first time organised in the first weekend of the blessed month of Ramadan. It was 'foods galore' thanks to parents and teachers who contributed food (dates, bubur, macaroni and many more) and drinks as well as those who helped out during the program itself. May Allah swt reward them with the rewards of the fast of those who broke their fast on that day, Ameen ya Rabb.

It started with the reading of doa Ma'thurat. A good opening that is blessed by Allah swt with the recitation of the Quran by Bro Hidir and the translation by Bro Uzair (both YKI Fityan students) stressed the importance of understanding and nor mere reading of the Quran. May Allah shower his Mercy and Blessings on those who were present on this blessed occasion.

Ustaz Asmadi, the Mudir of YKI presented the philosophy of YKI 'tarbiyah centric' education roadmap to all parents and students. He stressed on the importance of a strong 'partnership' between FMSA and parents for the sake of our children and the future of our Ummah through an effective complementary weekend Islamic education. However, he reminded that the YKI is a wholistic and comprehensive tarbiyah based program that is made up integrated components that include camps, outdoor trips and iftar programs like this one. Therefore parents were reminded to motivate and facilitate the attendance to all the programs by their children for their truly effective development.

Subhanallah, the terawih was led by Akh President Damanhuri and the Head of Tarbiyah Akh Hafiz and by Bro Afdhal, a YKI Syabab student with an impressive reading of Surah Al Mursalat & Al Jum'ah. The tarawih was made complete by Ustaz Asmadi who then gave a lively reminder about the beauty of the month of Ramadan.

I think everyone present were looking forward to the next Ramadan program looking at the 'wild' chattering and discussions between parents, teachers, students and FMSA members after the event. Insya Allah, hope to see everyone and more to FMSA Keluarga Fellowship Iftar on the 12th September at Masjid Kampung Siglap. Yes everyone is invited! Please RSVP to yki@fmsa.sg for your attendance and bring along some extra clothes and toiletries for the iktikaf session as well.

Ramadan Mubarak & Wassalam.

YKI Y2 Museum Visit

Getting Inspired Through a Museum Visit

Date: 15 Aug 2009

Venue: Asian Civilisation Museum, Empress Place

Many of us may have been to a museum many times. From these museum visits, how many of us ended up with just a ‘look and see’ experience and no more beyond that?

Through our YKI Museum Visit, we hope to teach students how to appreciate museum exhibits and be inspired by them. The museum is a place for reflection and learning. The things that you can do in a museum include observing the exhibits, reading the information provided and listening to audio narrations and sounds. Through these, we get to know the exhibits well and are able to relate them to our own existence. In fact, the exhibits tell us the story of people and civilizations of the past. This should remind us of our own mortality.

The main exhibits that students are required to visit are the South Asia, Southeast Asia and West Asia/Islamic galleries. They are then required to complete some questions in the handout under the section ‘Knowing the Asian Region’. Students share their thoughts by answering questions about how the museum can serve Islam as well as writing down their feelings and impressions after the visit.

After this museum visit, students may not immediately acquire the art of appreciating museum and get inspired by them. However, it is hoped that they have learnt how to acquire the skills which can benefit them in their future visits to the museum.
