Taḥfīẓ Department

The Taḥfīẓ Department or Qurʾānic Memorisation Program—as suggested by the title—is devoted to the memorization of the complete Qurʾān. The average student is able to do so in 3 years of devoted study with some dedicated students completing in less than 2 years.

The day starts at 06:00 in the morning. Class then closes at 07:00, thereby allowing students to partake of breakfast and morning tasks. Classes recommence at 08:00 and then break again at 11:00. Students are then allowed to partake in the sunnah pre-noon Qaylūlah [siesta], thereby allowing them to recuperate their energies for the afternoon class. Lunch is served before Ẓuhr ṣalāh, which is normally performed between 13:45 and 14:10. Class recommences at 14:10 and then closes for the day at 16:00. Students are strongly advised to revise their daily lessons at night between Maghrib and ʿIshāʾ prayers, and teachers periodically attend to ensure its occurrence.

Students are generally expected to reside on premises to facilitate their attendance of the above sessions. Classes are conducted 5 days a week from Monday to Friday. The Monday to Thursday program is as indicated from 08:00 until 16:00. However, Friday classes end at 11:00, after which students may leave the premises and return to their families and/or relatives for rest, recuperation, and personal revision/preparation over the weekend. Students are expected to return to the institute Sunday evening before Maghrib to prepare for class the next morning.
