Part-Time Hifz 

Part-time Hifz program is ideal for those who: 

  • Like to memorize the entire Quran at a moderate pace while actively enrolled in public school.

  • Like to memorize some of the essential portions of the Quran. 

  • Like to join full-time Hifz in the future (we will conduct an assessment to ensure the student's readiness for full-time enrollment in Hifz and the homeschooling program).

This program is a combination of three (3) things: 

  1. Hifz (Quran Memorization) 

  2. Tajweed (The science of Quran recitation)

  3. Islamic studies ​

  • It is designed for a student to spend three - three and one-half (3 - 3.5) hours daily under the guidance of a qualified teacher.

  • Students should attend Hifz class every day in two (2) sessions:

    • Online: Early morning 1.5 hours (6 - 7:30 am)

    • In-person: Evening two (2) hours 5:30-8 pm

  • A highly qualified teacher will be allotted to every two students during the online Hifz session.

  • Students will also learn the fundamentals of their religion to display close attachment with their Deen. ​


  1. A student will be allowed to attend classes after they are fully registered in the school. (For more details, consult 'GIE admission process').

  2. Students will participate in an evaluation process and spend an assessment term of 30 - 90 days.

Quran Memorization

Hifz program helps students correctly recite, understand and memorize the Holy Quran within two(2) - three (3) years.

  • It is practically impossible to guarantee that he/she will complete the Quran at a specific time. Some students may take less than one year to memorize the Quran, while others may take up to three or four years. Our goal is to help the students memorize the Quran in a way that they may never forget.

  • Remember that becoming a Hafiz takes hard work and dedication from both the student and the parents.

  • Your child will go through an evaluation process and spend an assessment term of 30 - 90 days before final enrollment.

  • We will provide eligible students with a personalized tentative memorization plan that gives you an idea about how much progress your child is expected to achieve through the year.
