The Quran Reading Program (QRP) focuses on building students’ ability to independently read the Qur’an in the Arabic language. After learning the Arabic alphabet, students move onto reading short words, and eventually, after much practice, gain fluency in reading. The science of Qur’anic recitation is also taught in these classes, so that students can learn to properly pronounce letters and follow the rules of recitation (tajwid). Some time is also spent on memorization of short surahs. Our Qur’an classes are taught by qualified and experienced instructors of Qur’anic recitation. Classes are available for children ages 5-18, and levels range from beginner to advanced.
Mondays - Thursdays, 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
