Do you have a Hifz (Qur’an Memorization) Program?

Our approach to the Qur’an is to have the students connect to the book as a book of wisdom and message from God and therefore we believe it’s important for them to understand the meaning of the Qur’an and not just memorizing it.

We also believe that children need to memorize the Qur’an for prayer purposes and to be close to the Book of God. So, we offer memorization, reading, and recitation opportunities in the curriculum. In the past two years, we have adopted the Nuraniya program which places a strong emphasis on developing students’ reading and recitation skills and helps them memorize more easily. Our teachers are certified in teaching this program.

For families who wish to provide more training in this area, we offer an after-school program.
