Teachers Training – Curriculum Overview

Narrated from the Prophet(S)
خِيَارُكُمْ‏ مَنْ‏ تَعَلَّمَ‏ الْقُرْآنَ‏ وَ عَلَّمَهُ. وسائل الشیعة ج6 ص167
The best amongst you is the one who learns the Qur’an and teaches it

Thank you for volunteering to join the Quran Teacher’s Training and for your interest in teaching Quran. It is a Sadaqah that will remain as long as your students are reciting the Quran.

Insha Allah, we will post more information here as we progress.

This training requires lots of listening and recitation. Therefore, you are requested to increase your listening and recitation and recite at least 2 pages of the Quran daily and recite along with the recitation of Qari Husary or Minshawi.

The classes will start Jan19th 2024 every Friday 7:30pm – 9pm.

We will have approximately 13 lessons that covers the theory and Insha Allah we will help each other with practical lessons throughout the week and the summer as well.

Several books in Farsi and Arabic will be referred but if you want a concise English reference, you can get Sh. Arastu’s Tajwid Book
