Syllabus

Tajweed

  • Forming the basis of the madrassah, tajweed is taken very seriously, from the early learners to the advanced Hifdh students, tajweed is prioritized over recitation and Hifdh
  • At the academy, all students are given ‘Read and Rise’ Qaidah which covers all the rules required
  • Students in general are not taken off Qaidah completely until they can fluently recite with tajweed
  • All teachers are hired with the condition their Tajweed is to standard (theoretical and practical implementation) or they agree to take further tajweed classes in order to continue teaching.
  • All teachers are regularly monitored through observation and other means to ensure tajweed standard is maintained throughout madrassah
  • Extra tajweed lessons are taught by the class teacher covering the trickier rules.
  • Homeworks are set surrounding the rulings that are usually harder to grasp. such as ‘ design a poster about idghaam’
  • Currently, many female teachers have been given private lessons with Umm Warda (ijaza) to upgrade and improve on their theoretical and practical skills surrounding tajweed

Quran Recitation

  • After completing the Qaidah fluently the student is moved unto Juz Amma and thereafter Juz Tabarak
  • The madrassah provides these books (Juz Amma and Juz Tabarak)
  • Students are required to become fluent in their recitation by the time they finish Juz Tabarak
  • The books provided are colour coded to help the student with remembering the rules they have learned from the Qaidah
  • Students thereafter bring in their own mushaf to start daily Quran recitation until they complete the recitation of the Quran
  • All students are listened to and are given set homework in their diaries depending upon their level of recitation (1 ayah, 3 lines, 1/2-page, 1 page, 2 pages)

Quran Memorisation

  • t is part of our curriculum for all students to memorise Juzz 30th and 29th with strong tajweed. Students start their Hifdh journey as soon as they begin madrassah.
  • One lesson is dedicated on Hifdh and another lesson just to listen to previously memorised surahs
  • Importance is put on retaining the surahs that have been memorised, this is done through cyclic revision of memorised surahs, set homework and charts have been created for teachers, parents and students to monitor their strength and revision of every single surah
  • Hifdh revision is also carried out through peer testing which is monitored by the teacher.
  • For Hifdh students a gradual introduction of a new mushaf is being implemented in order to enhance their understanding of words and Ayat they are memorising.

Islamic Studies

    • An Nasihah Islamic Curriculum (Level -Year 1 to Year 8) is implemented in the Academy which covers the subjects
    1. Fiqh (Jurisprudence)
    2. Aqaid (Theology)
    3. Ahadith (Prophetic narrations)
    4. Akhlaq (Mannerisms)
    5. Seerah (Prophetic biography)
    6. Tarikh (History)
    • In addition to these books’ teachers have daily discussions with their students on topics which are relevant to the time and situation students are facing, such as, classroom discussions on ‘women in Islam’, ‘bullying’, ‘racism’, ‘social media and its effects’ ‘atheism’ etc.
    • Students are also taught topics which are not limited to the books
    • many lessons also elaborate further into each respective topic the nasihah books cover.
    • Many exciting competitions occur centered around what the student has learned in that term from Islamic studies

Arabic Writing

  • There are 4 levels for the Arabic writing books provided
  • Students begin by learning how to format letters correctly on the line (as done in English)
  • Arabic handwriting practise is done on a daily basis in their Arabic activity books and also in their blue exercise books
  • Students are expected to start from forming letters to writing Ayat by the end of the fourth book
  • Arabic writing is also encouraged in other activities such as making a bookmark with the student’s name written in Arabic, the bookmark is then laminated

Duas/ Supplications

  • Lessons start and end with basic morning/evening supplications
  • Supplications are also done after Salah with the class teacher
  • Safar Academy dua book 1 and dua book 2 are taught for memorisation of supplications with their meanings
  • In order to ensure students, retain all the duas they have memorised charts have been created to be used weekly
  • The charts ensure teachers, parents and the student can visually see their progress in revision and strength in each and every duaa.

Arabic Language

  • Snap Cards for introducing Arabic language to early learners have been used in various class games
  • For Hifdh students the introduction of the translated mushaf (mentioned above) is to facilitate in learning the language through repetition, as the student progresses in Hifdh
  • Some classes begin and end the lesson in spoken Arabic, such as greeting the teacher, and asking ‘how are you?’
  • The madrassah is continuing to progress in teaching this subject and gradually introducing this to all the classes

Daily Updates
