Institute Of Quran Recitation and Application
[Quran 96:1] "Read, in the name of your Lord, who created."
Within a warm and caring Islamic environment, the IQRA program provides students the fundamentals of an Islamic education in a part-time school. With consistent attendance and parental support, students will learn to read the Qur’an following the Noorani Qaida methodology. Students will also learn to spell and to write words in Arabic reinforcing knowledge and meaning of the Arabic words.
On Saturdays, when there is a longer day, core Islamic knowledge will be taught in Islamic Studies classes where there is more time for learning the ways of the Prophet, (pbuh) and the companions, as well as the history of the Islamic culture. Competitions will be held to hold the interest of the students as well as to motivate learning.
Students will learn all of the Islamic basics such as how to pray, how to make wu-du, call the athan, and the characterisics and manners expected of all Muslims, both of sisters and of brothers.
Report cards will be issued mid-year and at the end of the year. Parents are invited to visit the classrooms and to observe learning in action. Teachers will maintain contact with parents to inform them of lessons taught, and to keep an open dialogue to assist in student achievement and Islamic development.
