Children of the Quran Evening School

And his character was the Qur’an

In September 2010 The Academy opened its evening school for the young and teenagers. The Evening School is unique in that all its teachers are native or near native English speaking and highly qualified in the Islamic sciences. The Academy saw the great need for the younger generations of Muslims to be tutored in Islamic studies in a language they understand and a friendly environment.

Essential to the healthy growth of Islam is the preservation of its teachings in the younger generations. It is only when they are excited and moved by an idea that they will carry it forward with passion. Muslims in Britain have suffered in that they were not able to provide a good understanding of their religion, its teachings and ethos to their young in the language that the young find most comfortable.

The Academy hopes to overcome this suffering within its capacity and limited resources. Hence, its evening school teaches recitation of the Qur’an along with daily lessons in various topics of Islam: Fiqh (Islamic rules of worship), ‘Aqidah (Belief), Tafsir (Qur’anic Explanation), Hadith (Prophetic traditions), Sirah (Prophetic life), biographies of notable Muslim scholars and Awliya and Arabic language are core subjects taught at the school.

The Qur’an was revealed by Allah through the Arch Angel Gabriel to The Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him. The Prophet, peace be upon him, was not merely a vessel that carried but rather an embodiment of Qur’anic traits and qualities. This is why when his noble wife ‘Aisha (Allah be pleased with her) was asked about his character she said ‘and his character was the qur’an’. The Academy hopes to twin recitation of the qur’an along with adopting of its traits and qualities.

The Academy class sizes are kept small so that the benefit is greater. Children are provided with recreational activities, day and residential trips throughout the year. Short courses are set-up during school holidays to further enhance student learning in their free time.

The Academy would like to further develop its evening school. We wish to enhance our facilities to match the standards of the modern world to make the presentation of religious sciences and practices more appropriate and appealing.

The Academy started an initiative whereby children and teenagers attend short courses on various topics during the school holidays. This program proved very successful with both parents and children. Parents were able to enrol their children on to a structured learning program which also provided recreational activities. Students at the end felt enriched with much knowledge and uplifted with the atmosphere.

All courses are for both boys and girls.
