Prior to acceptance into the Hifz course, students must either enroll into the Naazra course or have completed the Naazra course at another Islamic institute. The Naazra course starts by teaching each student the correct pronunciation of the Arabic alphabet. Students are taught the principles of intonation (tajweed) in full detail, which will facilitate towards memorizing of the Quran correctly and swiftly. The course ends with the student having mastered the textual recitation of the Quran with tajweed and having successfully read the entire Quran multiple times with fluency.
Students are taught the method of memorize the Quran with proper Tajweed. Special emphasis is placed on reinforcing the rules of tajweed during memorization. Periodic testing of the memorized portion of the Quran is done after each section (juz) of the Quran, which the student is required to pass in order to move forward.
This course is designed to cater 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 Qur’an and retain it by completing a one year revision (daur) of the entire Quran.
