There is nothing more pleasing to the parents’ eyes than to see their children being raised upon the obedience of Allah Subhanahu wa ta’ala. However, raising them in this way demands great effort.
One of the ways to accomplish this great journey of memorization of the Qur’an is to dedicate all efforts and time for it and to leave academic studies for the time after the memorization is completed. If the Hifdh program lasts for 2 or 3 years then it is not seriously impacting the progress of the academic studies. However, I have seen many students whose memorization period extends over several years and creates a problem for children to return to school.
Personally, I don’t think that process of memorization has to be that long if right methods of learning are implemented. In the same manner, academic studies don’t have to be overwhelming. Public and private schools suffer from textbook and worksheets fatigue overwhelming students with work that is not necessary. Academic material can be covered in easier and more effective way.
As a result of years of experience in working with Hifdh students, this program has been designed to meet their needs.
