Course Prospectus and Policy Guidance
London Hifz Academy Islamic weekend School has been established in Oct 2007 to improve the quality of basic Islamic education provision within the Muslim Community of East London and surrounding areas.
Small class sizes
We currently have 22 active classes. In each class we have a maximum of 10 students in the level 1 classes (ahsanul Qaida) and a maximum of 12 students in the Hifz classes. In total approximately 250 students are studying with us at the weekend school.
We believe small class sizes are critical to ensure that adequate time can be given to individual students' needs.
To ensure that they receive ample and efficient instruction, students are assigned to a class based on their individual needs and their prior experience.
The objective of the course is to introduce pupils to the teachings of Islam that will enable students to protect their Islamic identity, to practice Islam in its correct form and ensure Islam is central to their lives both as children today and adults in the future. Insha Allah.
As a minimum benchmark, they will be able to offer their daily prayers, recite the Quran with Tajweed, memorise various Surahs and Masnoon duas as well as having an understanding of the five basic pillars of Islam.
The Islamic Weekend School programme constitutes a structured programme taking children from the age of 5 - 15 and offers a comprehensive curriculum that teaches those branches of Islamic knowledge necessary for the fulfilment of a Muslims daily obligations and, inshallah, develop a love for the sunnah.
To achieve this, we intend to deliver this syllabus in an environment where children are motivated to learn by providing a stimulating, friendly and welcoming atmosphere.
