At the Madrasah, we strive to ensure that the children can begin recitation of the Holy Qur'an from a young age. We therefore try as best we can to allow 1-on-1 teaching. From the very beginning the children learn how to pronounce the alphabet and as they progress, they learn the vowels and how to join words.

Depending on the speed of the child, they are able to recite fluently within a few years. They also learn to memorise Surahs from the Qur'an and, when they have memorised a certain number of Surahs, they receive a certificate to show this. In the later years, they learn Tajweed as well as the meaning behind the Arabic writing of the Qur’an.


It is important that the children learn about behaviour and the way they should act towards others (Akhlaq)


The children in the younger age group learn the basics about Allah as well as about Allah's creation. They also focus on the fundamentals of the religion. As they move through the years, they move onto more complex issues regarding Islamic Law and Ethics.


The younger children learn, through story-telling, the history of the Prophets and the Imams. In the later years, the children learn about the companions of the Imams and also about how Islam moved through the world (from the 8th Century to the 14th Century) and influenced society as it is today.
