A back to basic approach that will effectively teach the correct recitation of the Noble Qur'an, starting from joining letters and words, moving onto rules and application of makharijul huruf (i.e. points of articulation), sifatul huruf (i.e. manners of articulation), and practice reading of the Holy Qur'an (i.e. nazra/tilawah).
The Noorani Qaida programme consists of:
- Teaching of a full Qur'anic Arabic qai’da;
- Qur'an tilawah;
- Etiquettes with the Qur'an and its pre-requisites;
- Necessities of prayer;
- Weekly homework.
Ustaad Hamza has been an excellent teacher throughout, and has really helped my daughter quickly progress on the Qaida is such a short period of time, we will being the Qur’an soon. I was surprised how quickly she grasped the rules of tajweed, and can only put this down to Ustaad Hamza's great teaching skills. I have now also enrolled my five year old son onto the Quran Academy course.
My seven year old has only been studying the Qaida for a few months but has progressed so quickly. She can easily join letters and pronounce difficult Arabic words. Cannot recommend this course enough. Very flexible and amazing support – which has been much needed in the current climate we find ourselves in.
Just wanted to let you know how fantastic the Qaida lessons were last week. The children are really looking forward to this weekend. So much so, that my 11 and 15 year old want to join in with the lessons with Ustadh Hamza
We are very happy with the teaching and how the children have progressed over the five weeks. We can see how confident our little one has become. He was not very familiar with the whole Arabic alphabet at first, however as we go through the exercises, we can see how he is picking up each exercise with more ease. JazaakAllah for all your hard work.
You have created a beautiful Qaida, where the laughter of children and learning go hand in hand, a sound so beautiful and rare. Well done to you and your team for this ground breaking curriculum and I am honoured my child is part of this journey. JazakAllah Khier. May Allah SWT reward you and your team. Ameen.
One of the best classes ever!! The speed the child learns, the interaction, curriculum and learning style is ground breaking. 100% reccomend it!
I have 2 children studying with Essential Islam and I have nothing but positiveness for what is an outstanding course.
For both of my children, they were nervous about online classes however, now it has become second nature. What I really like about the course is that the resources, teaching and support available are centred around the learner. For example, I like the fact that lessons and important concepts are recorded and available for learners. This means my children have been able to watch the videos at their own leisure and importantly, pause, replay until they have mastered what they need to learn.
I also admire the way Essential Islam has pathways that lead on from what the children are learning now. These pathways give our children the option to further study.
The course content, the pace of learning and the interaction with the EI team makes this a must to do on every parents list. We've had the pleasure of enrolling our son in the initial cohort of students and alhumdulillah, seeing him complete his Qaida in just 24 weeks, with correct Tajweed is truly jaw breaking stuff!
Ustaad Hamza has a brilliant connection with the students and uses his array of knowledge and skills to help the students understand and grasp the challenging aspects of Tajweed. Given the modern times we're living in I strongly urge every parent out there to enrol their child - don't delay, earn your barakah (in this world and hereafter) today! !
This is just the beginning Insha'Allah and I personally, cannot wait to see how my son (and the rest of the students) develop and mature over the coming weeks, months and years Insha'Allah. Keep up the fantastic work Team EI!
An honest team of personalities, facilitating and fostering a learning ethos to equip our children with the correct tools, in order for them to prosper in their spiritual quranic journey. An Excellent all round service!
My three children are all enrolled in the programme. They've all made tremendous progress, especially the youngest, who was a complete novice. Results will be seen if utmost effort is put in at home using the online tools. Qaida was completed in about six months. The fact that the children look forward to the classes speaks much about Ustad Hamza and his team.
My youngest when he began wouldn't sit, concentrate or try. A few months later after trusting the process my child has made a massive amount of progress. Ustad Hamza is an amazing role model for our children but crucially he's built relationships and supports us so much. I'd recommend the classes to anyone!
Highly recommend the course, my daughter is only 6yrs old and she is very fluent at reading, a big Thank you to the teachers. I have registered my eldest children also, as I would like to learn Tajweed with them. Jazakallah, keep up the good work, may Allah swt bless you reward you in abundance.
I would highly recommended Essentials Islam Quran Academy classes. Their classes are structured but also tailored to the learning needs to the child. This ensures they attain a solid foundation to equip them to advance their reading. Ustadh Hamza is knowledgable and skilled at what he does. He undertakes his job with great responsibility and passion. You know your children are in good care with Essential Islam! Alhamdulliah
Essential Islam Quran academy has single handedly taken my six year old (who had been accustomed to normal madrasah learning), from a little boy who thought learning Quran was daunting to a little boy who not only willingly wants to learn but has grown in so much confidence in his essential Islam journey and has thrived. It is a process and one which you can definitely trust. There were times that you felt it was going at such speed that he would never keep up. Constant reassurance from ustaad to trust in the process has paid off. Ustaad Hamza is able to identify when a child will struggle and when it will click into place, as it has done for my six year old. My son enjoys Quran and wants to learn and his thirst for learning has only been developed by the process of essential Islam and the way they deliver qaida. Cannot recommend it enough. I only wish we had known of it sooner.
I want to say that Ustadh Hamza is an amazing teacher, very gentle and patient, and he works to each child’s abilities. He teaches the rules in a very relatable way for the kids when they’re struggling and that really helps! The whole setup and all the content provided is just something else, and I’m really pleased with it! I can not praise Essential Islam enough for how you they have come up with teaching this way. I always wondered how online Quran classes work and assumed it wouldn’t be as beneficial as face to face teaching but with this setup I’ve been proved wrong! This Saturday I had a friend and her daughter sit in with us during the class as they are interested in joining. She was very positive by the end of it and will in shaa Allah be enrolling her daughter soon.
I just want to congratulate you and all the teachers at the Quran academy for creating such a wonderful programme and not only are the children learning to read the holy Quran they are developing a love for the Quran, something that I have never seen anywhere in the UK. Most children actually fear the masjid and their teacher whereas my daughters actually want to logon and do extra practice because of the loving environment and Ustadh Hamza's kind teaching methods Mashallah. May Allah give you all immense rewards for this and give you all the strength to continue with great success, ameen
It is great to hear how well my kids are doing. They do seem to be enjoying the classes and are very well engaged in the course. This is purely down to the organisation, structure and delivery of the course. So, for that, many thanks to you and the whole team particularly Ustadh Hamza.
Alhamdulillah we are really enjoying the course - the one to one support and online facilities are excellent.
