Texts (Mutoon) that will be covered in the program:
llmiyyah strives to foster an understanding of Islamic principles, ethics, and morals through the study of Qur'ān, Hadith, Aqīdah, and Arabic. Accomplishing this through obtaining proper knowledge, implementing the actions into one’s life, and serving the community at large ultimately to strengthen one’s faith. Within the program itself students will learn Arabic grammar, syntax, morphology, and semantics. While also learning the art of reciting the Qur'ān with proper Tajwīd. Through the study of Hadith, students also learn the methodology of interpreting, analyzing, and applying the Prophetic traditions. Through the guidance of qualified Hirz instructors students will develop an understanding of the Sunnah and its relevance to modern contemporary times, and thus how to apply it in their personal and professional lives. However, Ilmiyyah strives to foster more than just an understanding, but instead to foster the next generation of Islamic leaders who will guide their communities, helping to spread the message and continuing to legacy of the preservation of Islam.
*Students will be tested on their Ḥifdh and Arabic understanding prior to admission in the program, and only those who pass the screening will be granted admission into to the program.
“ If Allāh wants to do good to a person, He makes him comprehend the religion …”
(Saḥiḥ al-Bukhārī - 71)
Currently Al-Hirz Institute offers this class in an online format with classes being held over zoom.
The student will be asked to recite through a commonly used application based on the instructors discretion. The student will be notified of this application in class. Students will be asked to submit recordings of memorized texts on a bi-weekly schedule based on the instructors discretion.
The Ilmiyyah program is typically a 2-3 year program based of the speed of the batch and how long it takes them to cover a certain topic.
An Ijāzah in any field can be summed up as a certification of mastery given by one’s teacher. An Ijāzah in the memorization of Qur'ān will link the student back to the Prophet ﷺ.
In this class, instructor’s will grant Ijāzah upon their discretion based on whether the student upheld the requirements of the class.
The requirements to be certified will be mentioned in class.
The more a student has memorized from the Qur'ān, the better it will be for them, and their ability to understand the basic concepts of Arabic and Qur'ān which serve as the foundation of this course. Al-Hirz plans on starting a full time and part time hifdh program. Insha'Allah it will be announced once the programs start date has been finalized.
