The Hifz Programme started in 2010 with 12 learners from our primary school campus under the guidance of Moulana Luqmaan Adams. It has since grown to encompassing both primary and high school learners, about 17 in total, with Hafiz Sharief Tifloen assisting Moulana Luqmaan.
Alhamdulillah, 3 learners have completed thus far and have since also matriculated from our high school, having started at our primary school. They are also actively involved in leading the Taraweeh Salaah at various masajid in Port Elizabeth.
Learners are selected in Grade 3 and undergo an assessment procedure in order to qualify. They start attending classes from Grade 4: primary school boys from 3:00pm – 4:00pm and high school from 3:15pm – 5:00pm. In addition they also attend a holiday programme during certain holidays and perform Taraweeh salaah at the high school campus for part of Ramadhan in order to prepare learners to fulfill this role when they graduate.
Due to the fact that we incorporate the Hifz Programme into our school’s schedule the learners can memorise at their own pace taking their schoolwork load into consideration.
