Spirituality

Barnet Hill Academy is an Islamic faith designated school. As such it seeks to promote a values focused approach driven by strong morals, ethics and character with a focus on character education. 

Islam doesn’t view ‘spirituality’ separately from everyday activities. In Islam everything is ‘spiritual’ because all actions must be in accordance with God’s pleasure. This conviction creates a world view, a perspective and a unique behaviour in the individual. This means that all actions – from having a shower to picking up litter from the floor, should be referred to the Creator thereby establishing a constant awareness and consciousness of God in everything that one says or does.

Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w) was the perfect human being who reached the peak of spiritual success such that his legacy is the best of examples for reaching spiritual awareness and an example for us in our daily lives. This spirituality connects the soul to its creator and purifies the human soul of vices such as arrogance, anger, hatred, greed, envy to name some and replaces it with compassion, mercy, love, humility, patience, gratitude and generosity. 

It is through the constant remembrance of God that the heart reaches a state of spiritual tranquillity and it is one of the goals of Barnet Hill Academy that we encourage our students to behave in accordance with a worldview that respects tolerance, is empathetic, humble, generous and aware of God, at all times in our daily routines, in our work, study, rest and play and thereby a loving human being to all of mankind and God's creation.
