You ask, we answer

Here are responses to some frequently-asked questions

When did you begin your business?

IQRA was founded in 2017 by three fathers, an MIT research scientist, a Tufts University educator, and Al-Azhar University Sheikh. With each founder bringing a unique skillset, they saw a need to bring proper Quran, Tajweed and Islamic Studies to families living in the West. All founders are now Board Members and work to secure the legacy of IQRA for generations to come.

What makes IQRA different?

There are many online programs for Quran and Islamic Education, but none match the resume of IQRA. We hold the most prestigious accreditation of Quranic recitation. Sh. Masarawi, scholar and founder of the largest, and most accomplished Quran Institute awarded us the official seal of approval.

How much experience do you have?

We have taught over 1 million hours of Quran, Islamic Studies and Arabic. With over 3,000 active students in 46 countries, 300 teachers and 35 staff members, IQRA is run more like a Fortune 500 company than a local Sunday school, but with the personal touch of a family member. Feel confident knowing we attract the best in the industry and don’t stop innovating to stay ahead.

Where are you located and do you have service in my area?

Our headquarters is in Massachusetts, USA, and we have a satellite branch in Cairo, Egypt. Our staff and teachers are located all over the world. The school is online only, and so, we are able to offer lessons to anyone, anywhere in the world. All you need is a computer, phone, or tablet and an internet connection.
