Tarbiyah Academy is proud to announce the 2018-19 after school Qur’an Masterclass Program beginning in November, insha’Allah. The Qur’an Masterclass is designed as an accelerated, part-time Hifdh program which will allow students the opportunity to make rapid gains in their ability to recite and retain large portions of the Qur’an, with an authentic and unbroken chain (sanad + ijazah) of transmission from the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). Interested students will be systematically guided by our instructor using progressively advanced techniques to enhance their reading speed, fluency, and memory capacity, based on their initial level as follows:

  • Level 1: Qaa’ida Nooraniya until mastery, followed by one-half of Juz 30
  • Level 2: Mastery of Juz 30
  • Level 3: Mastery of Juz 29
  • Level 4: Advanced Mastery

The Masterclass program will condense four, 45-minute lessons, into 2 sessions per week lasting 90 minutes each (with a snack and break provided), with a goal to develop a love for the lifelong learning of the book of Allah within each student. Placement into each level, and advancement between levels, will be required by regular assessments and feedback.

(Note: Although TA students receive regular instruction in a tafseer-based Qur’an class during school, the Masterclass accelerated program will concentrate on fluency, memorization, and beautification of recitation.)
