About me

I have been teaching Quran since I was in high school. It has been my passion to teach Quran recitation and tajweed for the past 33 years.

Even though I have a degree in teaching English, I soon realized my passion lies in teaching Quran and sharing my love for beautiful recitation with others. It’s an honor to recite Quran with my students and be a part of their lifelong relationship with Allah’s book.

While living in Jeddah, I was given the unique opportunity to be the supervisor of the Islamic Center for non-Arabs teaching tajweed and Tafseer to non-native Arabic speakers. I loved being able to translate the beautiful Quran into easy lessons on how to apply it to our daily life.

I want my students to perfect their tajweed but also understand what they are reciting. The Quran is not just for reading but also for living and using the lessons. I celebrate with my students when they pronounce a letter correctly that has been giving them a hard time. I feel it’s my success as well.

Here are responses to some frequently-asked questions

Can I choose to have a female teacher?

Yes. Most women prefer to be taught by a female. Our female teachers are certified with ijaza, have taught for years, and have attained recognition as a scholar. They are all highly qualified and offer a level of comfort to our female students. Let us know your preference and we are happy to arrange it.

How do you pick your teachers?

With thousands of applications a year, we are blessed to be in a position to choose only the best. It is a rigorous application and background check process. They must go through a preliminary round of vetting before being offered an interview. After hiring, they are required to successfully complete a training and onboarding procedure before they teach their first student. All our teachers have regular in-service training sessions to empower them with the latest tools in education.

How do you maintain quality?

Every lesson is recorded. There is no other program that offers recorded sessions and the opportunity to view them. The academic advising team uses it for training purposes and to continually find ways to improve and make it dynamic for the student.
