AFTER SCHOOL QUR’AN MEMORIZATION PROGRAM

 

The After School Qur’an Memorization Program at NUI is very well attended by students from 1st grade through High School. Each year, three students are chosen from this program to enter the NUI accelerated hafidh program which allows students to finish memorizing the entire Qur’an in two years. Twenty-three students have finished memorizing the entire Qur’an in the special accelerated hafidh program at Noor-Ul-Iman under the tutelage of our resident Sheikh, Mamdouh Selim. An additional six students are in the process of completing memorization of the entire Qur’an in this special two-year program. While completing their memorization in the special accelerated hafidh program, students are also required to attend all academic and religious classes and maintain at least a B average in all subject areas. Almost all of the male Huffadh from Noor-Ul-Iman School have led at least two rakaas of Taraweeh Prayer at ISCJ. This past Ramadan a student acted as Imam for the first two rakaas of Taraweeh Prayer almost every night. Some of the male Huffadh from NUI have also been invited to lead Taraweeh Prayer at other local masajid.
