“The madrasah not only brings our children benefits in relation to the hereafter, it also provides them goodness in this world. Parents too, receive worldly gain: a child that spent its time well at madrasah will become a means of comfort and joy for its parents. The madrasah is a boon for the country as well because it produces good citizens, regardless of whether it operates in an Islamic country or a secular state.” 

(Madrasah: an asset for us all, Shaykh-ul-Hadith, Hadrat Mawlana Muhammad Saleem Dhorat hafizahullah)

One of the fundamental aims of Al-Hidayah Foundation is to equip young people with the basics and essentials of their religion. To achieve this a Maktab (evening Madrasah) was initiated for children aged 4+ (school year reception +), operating  Monday to Friday, wherein children are taught Qur’an alongside many other subjects including Aqidah, History, Fiqh and Duas, with a key focus on Tarbiyyah (the nurturing and upbringing) of the child in aspects of their religious and moral development. 

At present the timings for Madrasah-Al-Hidayah is as follows;

1.     4:45 pm – 6:15 pm

2.     5:45 pm – 7:30 pm

The parents of a Hafidh will be given a crown to wear which will be brighter than the sun. (Al-hadith)

A Hafidh will be able to grant ten people entry into Jannah on whom Jahannam has become their place. (Al-hadith)



What is Hifdh and who is a Hafidh?

‘Hifdh’ means to memorise. And when used in relation to the Glourious Qur’an it means to commit to memory the verses of the Glorious Qur’an which are over 6,000 in number. A person who has achieved such a task is honoured with the title ‘Hafidh’. The Hafidh is an important person in the Muslim community as he plays a role in the preservation of the Qur’ān. the virtue for a Hafidh  in the Ahadeeth is great, which can be understood from the above.

Alhamdulillah Madrasah al Hidayah has a Hifdh class operating. This course is designed to cater for each individual student according to his capabilities and potential, with an emphasis on the importance of Tajwīd (Qur’ānic Phonetics / Intonation) and rules of recitation. The syllabus has been prepared in a manner that will enable a student to memorise the entire Qur’ān (approximately over 6,000 verses) and retain it. Alongside the Hifdh, a lot of emphasis and training is given on spiritual and moral development, to ensure these children who will graduate as Huffadh will have the qualities and characteristics expected from a Hafidh.
