The course is based on authentic hadith, classical sources of scholarly tafsir, and the lives and teachings of the virtuous believers who were the embodiment of the Qur’an. The emphasis is on understanding the depths of Qur’anic wisdom and to highlight spiritual insights and practical advice from the meanings of the Qur’an with the purpose of increasing our heartfelt connection with Allah.

Q: How many hours a week am I expected to commit for the Program?

Ans: 3 hours/week Qur’an class. However, time commitment per week can increase till 5.5 hours/week for some terms, owing to Required Foundations Modules and Short Courses. Out of class, students are expected to spend around 2-3 hours a week to review the material.

Q: Will there be an exam?

Ans: Yes. Those students who wish to receive a diploma at the end of 3 years need to give Term Assessments. In addition to the Term Assessments, occasional quizzes might be taken during the terms too, to help students review important material covered during classes.

Ans: Recordings are available for those students who miss classes for genuine reasons or just to listen to any class again.

Q: What if I have to miss classes during the year because of my University exams or family engagements?

Ans: The Qur’an Program has been designed to cater to working women, students and housewives alike, so we do understand that there may be occasions when you may not be able to attend class for genuine reasons. Recordings are available so that students may catch up with the classes they have missed. They will have to provide reason in advance for missing the classes.

Q: Is there an Attendance Policy?

Ans: Attendance will be regularly marked for the Qur’an Program. In order to qualify for the next QP term, students need to maintain at least 90% attendance each term (live classes & via recordings).
