Stages of Curriculum

For Children

  • From age five the child starts learning Qur'an with Tajweed, memorizing what he can handle.
  • At the age of six (after one year of studying) the child should be done reading the whole Qur'an with Tajweed in addition to memorizing from half to one Juz' of the Qur'an (From the 30th Juz') depending on his abilities.
  • After this stage, the child starts a program for memorizing the whole Qur'an, scheduled based on his abilities.
  • In order to accomplish the above mentioned part of the program in one year a student should receive an hour a day of the interactive training.
  • If the student is working less than an hour a day, the time needed will increase up to two years or more in order to accomplish the above mentioned part of the program.
  • From six to twelve years, a child moves to the next level, memorizing the whole Qur'an at a pace of four Juz' in the first year then five Juz' a year for the five following years to complete the Holy Qur'an with solid memorization and with perfect Tajweed in six years.
  • A student should be regularly studying one hour a day assisted by his Sheikh in addition to another hour to review what he had memorized.
  • Review can be done by a qualified family member, although it is always preferable that his Sheikh reviews with him to ensure solidification of Hifz.
  • After finishing the stage of memorization and Hifz of the Holy Qur'an, the student is evaluated and given a certificate of what he accomplished.
  • In addition, the student will memorize Matn Tuhfatul Atfaal and Al Muqadimah al Jaziriya and will study the rules of Tajweed.
  • The above mentioned program takes as a reference the Qur'an recitation by Sheikh Mahmoud Khalil Al Husary (Al Mushaf Al Mu'alim-Al Mushaf Al Muratel). You can check the following website:
