Recitation of the Holy Qur’an is highly recommended by Allah (SWT) and His Holy Prophet Muhammad (S).

Since all Muslims value the recitation of the Holy Qur’an, we are blessed to offer this series of workshops to serve those who love the Qur’an.

It is highly recommended to attend all three workshops to be able to recite the Holy Qur’an as nicely as possible.

This course offers an excellent opportunity to master a very important language which provides an entry into a rich and diverse culture. Since Persian has not changed significantly in over a millennium, the basic grammar for the classical and modern forms of the language is virtually the same and is relatively easy to learn. One of the benefits of learning Farsi is the ability to access a huge body of literature and sources of Islamic knowledge.

The Islamic College has organized a 12 weeks Classical Arabic Course for those who want to learn the language of the Islamic revelation. Classical Arabic refers to both the language of the Qur’an and of the various works produced during the early Islamic period. This course is designed to prepare students with no previous knowledge of Arabic to read and understand Quranic and classical Islamic texts.
