    Teacher Sarah makes memorizing Quran so fun.

    Amazing place to learn Quran! The teachers are very friendly and engaging. Both my 10 and 8-year-old boys love it! They’ve really progressed in their tajweed and memorization mashaAllah. So glad IQRA Network was recommended to me! Support staff are very helpful and respond to any queries fast. We’re from Sydney so really appreciated IQRA staff going above and beyond to cater to my children’s needs and times. Love the use of Google chat to communicate between parent/child and teacher. Highly recommend.

    I took Tajweed lessons through IQRA for about 8 months, 3 times per week. I was very happy with the quality of the instruction. Their teachers and support staff are professional and extremely helpful. I feel that I really benefited from my whole experience with IQRA and I will use their services again when my schedule allows. I have seen a drastic improvement in my recitation and I definitely recommend them to others who want to improve their Tajweed.
