This course is designed to enable students to memorise the whole Qur’ān within a period of approximately three years and continue to retain it. Each individual student studies at a pace in line with his capabilities and potential. Emphasis is given to the importance of Tajwīd (Qur’ānic Phonetics) and rules of recitation.

The hāfiz (one who memorises the whole Qur’ān) has historically played a key role in the preservation of the Qur’ān, and continues to do so today.

After Completing the Course
Students completing the course have the choice of pursuing the ‘Ālimiyyah Course in which being a hāfiz is advantageous, though not necessary.

A student successfully completing the Tahfīz-al-Qur’ān course is equipped to play an important role in the Muslim community. A hāfiz is given the responsibility of teaching children the recitation of the Qur’ān, and  leading special prayers during the month of Ramadān. The greatest advantage a hāfiz possesses is literally having the entire Qur’ān open before him at all times, an invaluable tool when engaged in religious activities like delivering talks, writing etc.
Our graduates have gone on to successfully put their skills to use, many being invited to other countries during the month of Ramadān to serve the communities there.
