The goal of the UFD Evening Maktab is to enhance the lives of students through recitation of the Quran, Islamic education, encouraging moral character, development of social compassion and awareness.
Islamic education entails teaching children the basic concepts, values and ethics of Islam, which serve as the foundation for all other human knowledge and sciences. The aim is to develop an Islamic personality so that an individual can choose to live his/her life in this world according to the guidance revealed in the Quran and exemplified in the life of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).
Our children are our future. Investing in their Islamic upbringing is truly a worthy cause. The positive effects they will generate towards preserving our precious deen and creating a better tomorrow will be the best profit we can generate.
Along with the Quran Program, students will learn important aspects of Deen relevant to their everyday life, including Du'as, Kalimahs and Surahs. They are taught and assessed on an ongoing basis and evaluated on their ability to momorize, retain and use them as well as understand their purpose and benefits.
The Primary purpose of the Qaida program is to introduce the children to the Arabic alplhabet, their different forms, how they connect to one another, recognize vowels, their functions and the sounds they produce. They will also be briefly introduced to the basic rules of Tajweed.
The Nazira program develops the ability to recite the Quran in the manner in which it was revealed. Therefore, emphasis in this program is placed on Makhraj, Madd e Asli, Tajweed and fluency. The amount a student recites daily and the goal towards completeing the full recitation of Quran is a secondary objective reflected in their fluency.
The Hifz program creates the opportunity for our children to have the good fortune and blessing of being used as a tool for the safeguarding of the Glorious Quran and attain to memory those surahs of the Quran that have been instructed to be recited daily.
