The Benchmark started its journey in 2001, when couple of educationists started to feel that present education system is obsolete and cannot prepare a generation who can take challenges in near future. They realize that the most important part of education is missing and that is Tarbiah. We’ve been going away from the teaching of Islam without realizing the consequences in this world and in the Akhirah.In our current education system, we have more emphasis to lookgood rather to be good. People’s perception is more important than reality. Marks are more important than real achievement. Our success becomes hurdle for us to be humble, respectful, and a good human being. It teaches us to become prominent that make them more self-centered, arrogant and greedy. With this approach, when we win or lose, we react excessively. It increases anguish and greed that make us live a miserable life.
With all these findings, we realize, we have to come up with solution and provide alternatives to the sensible parents and give a chance to our young generation to excel in present modern education without sacrificing Islamic values.
It took couple of years to identify problems and finding appropriate solutions for each problem. We started a few projects and THE BENCHMARK is one of those projects that we are proud of.
At the benchmark, we teach to give importance to others. We embed that results are from Allah (S.W.T) and we can only do our best. Due to this approach, Students never feel jealous with anyone; since, reward is from Allah (S.W.T.). In fact, it increases respect for rewarded brother/sister; on the other hand, successful person do not act arrogantly; since it is from Allah (S.W.T.).
May Allah help us to accomplish our mission. (Ameen)
