Miraaj Academy is a school dedicated to establishing a prophetic brotherhood founded in Qur’an, sacred knowledge, and beautiful character.
The prophet told us himself, as reported by Malik, “I have been sent to perfect good character.”
With these tools the young men of Mirage are trained in leadership and taught how to engage in the world with the best our religion has to offer.

Miraaj Academy is a foundation upon which people of nobility are made. It is the bridge that reaches between the tradition of the east and the cultural norms of our westerns society, selectively molding together the best of what Allah has given us.

As all Muslims pray:
“Our Lord! Give us in this world that which is good and in the Hereafter that which is good, and save us from the torment of the Fire!”
