The evening Supplementary School currently teaches pupils Arabic, Islamic Studies, and Qur’an Hifz. The school is currently in session for two hours daily in the evenings during the week and Saturday morning, with over 800 students and is therefore largely an after-school institution.
Weekdays, Monday – Friday 5:00pm to 7:00pm
Weekend, Saturday 9:00am to 11am
There are basic classes for younger children and more intermediate classes for older children with a separate Hifz class for those wishing to memorize the Qur’an, largely made up of older students. Pupils are taught Islamic Studies from textbooks alongside Qur’an and Tajweed.
Senior Girls Classes
The Madrasah has always facilitated classes for older girls taught by Aalimahs to further their understanding of Islam and also learn other personal Masaail which male Ustaads could not teach them. We have over time restructured these classes and provide a well supervised environment for our older girls to learn within.
Saturday Morning, Madrasah Classes
Classes 1-3 and all advance classes are exempt from attending these classes, only classes 4-8 and hifz students attend on a Saturday morning. the Saturday morning teaching consist only of aspects of the Madrasah syllabus that are memorised like the Surahs, Kalimas, duas and other aspects of salah etc. During weekday evenings children are mentally and physically exhausted from a full day of schooling, so expecting them to memorise on top of their normal lessons would be over burdening. We trust parents will appreciate that it’s important to sacrifice some of our rest to achieve the best for our children and also get reward for it in the hereafter.
Madrasah Islamiyah offers Tajweed lessons at different levels for sisters delivered by sister Appa who is a qualified Tajweed teacher. For nearly 18 years we have facilitated ladies classes during three days of the week. These classes take place on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. All praise to our Creator, many women have benefited from these classes to correct their recitation of the Quran and learn other day to day basic masaail.
6:00pm – 8:30pm
We currently run three Aalim classes in the evening between the hours of 6pm and 8.30pm in madrasah time during the week,with 37 boys and increasing yearly. The course is an intense study of the ‘darse nizami’ overseen and monitored by Moulana Hasib Mayet Sb. May the Almighty make it beneficial for the students and the wider community, Aameen.
