The Madrassah in Western Europe and North America, in its current form, is largely a product of the 20th century and is thus still in its infancy. The educational quality of these Madrassahs varies vastly and thus affects the pupils experience with religion.

It is therefore essential that the Madrassah develops in the healthiest and most constructive way possible in order to provide maximum benefit to the young Muslims who attend and the society they contribute to.

The Madrassah Quality Standard Framework (MQSF) facilitates the development of leaders, teachers and administrative staff as well as the institutions they serve. It will work towards quality of Islamic education within a safe, sustainable and spiritually uplifting environment.
