The Al-Arqam mission is to have an educational institution that teaches and nurtures the "whole" child - intellectually, emotionally and physically, and to instill in each student the principles of submission to the Will of Allah as an essential element in achieving excellence academically and personally.

As-Salamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah,

Last year Al-Arqam students took on a project to build water wells for villages in Somalia that are situated from sources of fresh water. With the aid of Allah ta'ala, Arqam students raised enough to build 3 wells that would provide water around 200 families each. Below are some pictures of the wells built by Arqam students. May Allah reward everyone that aided the project and all those that donated to make this possible. 

Jazakum Allahu Khair
