About our School

Our School is one of Chicago's Best Islamic Schools.
We focus on scholastic development, personal growth, and ethical enrichment.

Our expansion project brought us more than new class rooms. As we move classes into the new building we are also happy to add new courses and expectations to our well established, challenging curriculum and programs.

The new building has added a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) lab and STEAM classes for 4th through 7th grade, art club after school, and Lego Robotics Rookie Team in Middle School.

We are focused on expanding our Positive Behavior Intervention System PBIS and School wide expectations for students and faculty alike. A kind word can go a lot farther and last forever in the heart of a child.

I pray that Allah (SWT) will allow me to serve this school, teachers, students and families with the best of intentions and the wisest of actions always. The Qur’an teaches us that our actions should always encompass fairness, morality, compassion, mercy, modesty, self-sacrifice, tolerance and peace. I intend to apply these values to the best of my ability as the Principal of Universal.

Prophet Muhammad (SAW) was always concerned with teaching Muslims to have the best manners and personal characteristics as well as to excel in everything they do. This is our focus and goal with one another and our students.



Secondary School was founded in 1987 to provide students with excellent academic programs and a nurturing environment with close student-teacher relationships. Secondary School is a private yet affordable elementary school offering a stimulating curriculum and a supportive environment to ensure our students experience success every day.

Universal School’s main objective is to provide a safe, nurturing, and stimulating Islamic learning environment that enables students to achieve their maximum educational potential and prepare them for their future roles in society as responsible and contributing citizens.

At Universal I work to promote a safe and positive school environment through providing individual and group counseling to students who need support for adjusting to academic contexts, developing coping skills, managing mental health challenges, dealing with grief and loss, in need of spiritual guidance, and any other concerns that might impact their positive development as young American Muslims.
