#Tarbiya is a linguistic derivative of the word Rabb, or Lord, and it denotes a comprehensive process of personal progress, whereby an individual grows spiritually, intellectually and socially to achieve a godly life. In the context of Islamic work, its about helping individuals acquire the needed skills and knowledge base through a structured educational process to achieve harmony between their divine obligations and worldly responsibilities.
Tarbiya Institute is an Islamic organization that focuses it’s efforts on restoring the authentic image of Islam, and the empowerment of the Muslim individual through perpetual personal progress. Tarbiya acquired it’s first location in Roseville, California to serve the community in Placer County. The facility is called the Tarbiya House, which offers all the services that a masjid offers, but goes above and beyond to provide a safe space for all Muslims to worship Allah in a mosque environment, but also get involved in their community at their own pace. At Tarbiya, women, youth and converts, natives and immigrants, refugees and professionals, all are welcome.
For that, programs are devised, including mentorship, regular halaqas, ongoing activities, volunteer opportunities, leadership training, classes, camps and much more. This is the purpose of the Tarbiya Institute as we envision it.
At Tarbiya Institute, we strive to cater to the needs of the family by paying attention to the needs of its building blocks.
