Full-Time Hifzh School

The Mission

From its inception, Dar-us-Salaam’s mission has been to establish a strong community of believers that strives to establish Islam in all aspects of life. Our goal is to nourish the Muslims’ minds, bodies, and souls with the knowledge of Islam, as well as to assist people in applying and benefiting from this knowledge. The mission of the Hifzh School is to prepare Huffazh who would carry the Book of Allah in their hearts, understand it and share it with others, Muslims and non-Muslims.As part of this mission, many of the Hifzh School students and graduates are currently teachers in the Qur’an Programs at Dar-us-Salaam and at other Masjids.


What do students do at the Hifzh School?

The Hifzh School primarily focuses on the recitation, memorization and review of the Qur’an. Students spend most of their day at school reading Qur’an: memorizing new verses, reviewing what they have previously memorized, and reciting it.Students who enter the Hifzh School with fluent reading abilities start memorizing the Qur’an immediately. Students who need improvement in their reading proficiency have to go through a 3-6 months intensive reading program before they can start memorizing.

In addition to studying Qur’an, students also have the following activities during the week:

  1. Translation / Tafseer: This class is held once a week for about 45-minutes. Students go over the word-to-word translation of the Qur’an, and a brief interpretation of the verses covered.
  2. Aqeedah: This class is held once a week for about 30 minutes. Students are taught the various articles of our faith, and their implementation in our daily lives.
  3. Physical Education: Students have P.E. twice a week for about 30 minutes.
