Darul Quraan Institute was established in 2011 and initially functioned as a part time hifz class. Due to the demands of the secular curriculum, the need to initiate a full time hifz program was realized. After consultation with senior ulama, in January 2013, the full time hifz program was introduced with the vision to create an environment that is attractive for both students and parents.
Alhamdulillah through the grace and mercy of Allah Ta’ala, since the inception of the Madrasah, 22 huffaaz have successfully completed the memorization of the Quraan, and Insha Allah this year we will witness the completion of the Quraan by 9 more huffaaz, bringing the total number of huffaaz to 31.
The madrasah currently has a role of 60 students and employs 4 full time and 4 part time Asaatizah. We have adopted a policy that the students are only allowed to deliver their work to an ustad, thus making it easier to achieve and maintain high standards.
Pre - Hifz
This is a preparatory class designed to enable students that are interested in doing hifz to recite fluently and develop recognition and correct pronunciation of Makharij and basic laws of tajweed. Alhamdulillah this class has proved to be very beneficial.
Part Time Hifz
These are school going students who attend madrasah early in the morning and after school. Alhamdulilah, despite the challenges of the school curriculum, students are excelling.
Full Time Hifz
Due to the current demands and pressures of the secular system we have observed that in this day and age full time hifz has become a necessity. This program requires absolute commitment by both the parent and student. It also has a dedicated lesson for Fiqh and Aqeedah which is conducted on a daily basis. The student is required to opt out of main stream schooling and focus on the hifz program. To create a balance, there are options available for the student to pursue some secular education via the many home schooling options available.
To enhance the fluent recitation of the Quraan in the manner in which it ought to be recited, the Madrasah offers special tajweed classes on a Wednesday evening. This opportunity is extended to selected students who show potential, and Insha Allah through this effort we hope that more students would aspire to join the class.
Over the past 5 years the madrasah has successfully facilitated taraweeh salaah during the month of Ramadhaan across 4 venues.
We have embarked on conducting Quraan programs, our aim being to revive and instil the love Quraan in the hearts of all.
We intend starting Introductory and in depth theme based courses on a range of topics designed specifically for our youth.
