The Waltham Forest Islamic Association’s systematically developed education syllabus has resulted in the development and progression of students in all aspects of the education system offered, including: Islamic Studies, Quran recitation, Hifz classes, Urdu language classes and extra syllabus classes.
Quranic and Islamic Classes
Children are taken on to the Qur’anic and Islamic classes from the ages of 5/6 years onwards. Topics taught are listed below.
- To perform the Wudu (washing)
- To read the Qur’an
- To recite the Qur’an with Tajweed
- The five pillars of Islam
- Prayer in the form of salah
- The basic history of Islam
For the benefit and progression of our students we believe that it is necessary to separate students into classes based on age & individual ability since each child will read the Holy Qur’an at their own pace.
Classes are held on Weekdays (Monday – Friday) at 5pm – 7pm.
Hifz (Memorisation the Qur’an)
The Hifz class, has been run by the Masjid for many years and we are proud of our many competent Hafiz.
The Hifz class is attended by children who have completed their Qur’anic reading classes and have made the commitment to memorise the Qur’an. Islamic studies and Tajweed is also taught alongside memorising of the Qur’an.
We also encourage our students and provide opportunities for recitation at public events.
