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.
