Islamic Services Foundation

ISF (Islamic Services Foundation) is a non-profit organization established in 1989 by a group of Muslim families in the Dallas area dedicated to establishing an educational institution conducive to an Islamic environment that would not only provide a great academic foundation for the children of the community, but also a strong Islamic foundation that would benefit the Ummah/community in years to come.

The first ISF project, Brighter Horizons Academy (BHA), has blossomed to almost 900 students and has graduated eight senior classes. To this day, it continues to provide a positive learning environment for Muslim children in the DFW area and to deliver leaders for our Ummah that are not only academically prepared for the real world, but have a solid Islamic foundation to help them navigate the challenges faced by young adults on a daily basis and stick to their beliefs and values.

Additionally, ISF has expanded to include a few other entities:

  1. Brighter Horizons Academy
  2. My Islamic Books Series – Books designed to help teachers and students in Islamic studies throughout North America, taking what was developed for BHA and sharing it with other Islamic schools.
  3. The Muslim Yellow Pages – Bringing businesses and consumers together.
  4. IQI, (The ISF Quranic Institute) – Designed to facilitate a strong Hifz program for parents and students seeking that extra edge.

Some of the key goals for ISF are:
