HIFZ OF QURAN
Students are taught the method of memorising the Qurān with proper tajwīd. Special emphasis is placed on reinforcing the rules of tajwīd during memorisation. Periodic testing of the memorised portion of the Qurān is done after each section (juz) of the Qurān, which the student is required to pass in order to progress.
This course caters for each individual student according to his capabilities and potential. The syllabus has been prepared in a manner that will enable each student to memorize the entire Qurān and retain it by completing a one-year revision of the entire Qurān after complete memorisation.
