In Arabic, Maahad Lil Aytam (MLA) means “School for the Orphans.” The significance behind choosing this name comes from the power that orphans possess in having their prayers heard directly. The board of MLA decided to grab hold of this pull and use it for the good of their students, orphan or not. In this way, the name “Maahad Lil Aytam” speaks to the girls the board aims to serve and recognizes the strength of their religious symbolism. This name also reflects the board’s desire to help and focus on others, and to create something larger than themselves for everyone to benefit.
Mahaad Lil Aytam is a Quran boarding girls’ school aimed to ultimately house 50 students ages 8-18 years old. In addition to teaching the Quran, MLA incorporates sustainability practices into its students daily lives so that they may learn about ecofriendly techniques that will help them lead healthy lives. Currently this center of learning is located at Lot 2978 Lorong Melati, Kampong Damai, Kuang 48050, Selangor, which encompasses two acres and includes a 9,000 square foot property.
We utilize the skills and talents of international volunteers who are interested in contributing to the school and learning more about local Malaysian culture and the Islamic faith.
We incorporate sustainable practices into daily routines and be exposed to activities of horseback riding, archery, and swimming.
We incorporate educational field trips to other Quran schools, universities, museums, sporting events and theater shows.
MLA’s curriculum is based on the Quran, but also incorporates a variety of academic subjects to promote well-rounded students.
