Boy Scouts: Hafidh Program: Qur’an Class: Tae Kwon Do:
The ISCJ/NUI Boy Scout Troop #114 is Central New Jersey’s First Official Muslim Boy Scout Troop that was established in the Fall of 2002 by active community members. Since then, the ISCJ/NUI Boy Scout Troop #114 has grown from just under a dozen scouts to a Troop of about 75 scouts. Scouts range from ages eleven to eighteen. Scouting is a unique way of supplementing and complementing the current academic, religious, and physical education program at Noor-Ul-Iman and other schools with after school, weekend and summer scouting activities.
NUI has a special Two Year Hafidh Program for those students who excel in the After School Qur’an Memorization Program. Shaikh Mamdouh and a committee of teachers select the top two or three performers in grade six from the After School Qur’an Memorization Program for the Two Year Hafidh Program. Alhamdu Lilah, thirty-five students have completed memorizing the entire Qur’an through this program and there are an additional eight students who are currently in the process.
Noor-Ul-Iman School has been blessed to have an After School Qur’an Memorization Program for the past seventeen years. The program is led by NUI’s resident Hafidh, Shaikh Mamdouh Selim, who taught Qur’anic Memorization and Tajweed for seven years in Saudi Arabia before coming to Noor-Ul-Iman School. The After School Memorization Program is open to students starting in First Grade. There are three levels for the After School Memorization Program: Beginners (open to first and second grade students only), Advanced and Independent (open to students in grade three and above). The classes are offered Monday through Friday after school from 3:30-4:30 and parents are given the option to choose the meeting days depending on the students’ levels.
Noor-Ul-Iman School organizes a Girls only Tae Kwon Do Class for girls four years old and above. The class meets once a week to learn self defense skills as well as improve mental discipline and emotional self-control. The class is taught by one of the NUI Health and Wellness instructors who has earned a third degree black belt and is recognized as a world champion in Tae Kwon Do having played on the Egyptian National Team.
