Are you an adult, but never had the privilege of learning to read the Qur’an? Do you have trouble reading the Qur’an fluently (baca merangkak)? Do you have doubts or worries about how you are reading the Qur’an, and whether you are reading or pronouncing the alphabets correctly?

16 Hour Iqra’ is designed as a fast-track Qur’an reading and recitation learning class to address these issues faced by many adults seeking to learn to read the Qur’an.

This class will be led by Ustadh Abla, a Moroccan native Arabic speaker. Ustadh Abla is specialised in working with adult learners – he understands the struggles and the barriers facing adult students and knows how best to make this easy for you.

16 Hour Iqra’ is for Beginners who will learn from zero to hero. Attendees will learn all aspects of the Arabic letters, proper pronunciation, vocal projection, as well as Qur’anic Arabic writing practices.

In this class, students will be introduced to the 28 Arabic alphabets, and taught how to read and pronounce them phonetically as letters and words, accurately.

At the end of the course, students will be able to recognise and read Arabic words, leading them towards the fulfilling and rewarding lifelong reading of the Holy Qur’an Insha’Allah.

Participants should maintain a deep passion and commitment to learn the reading of the Holy Qur’an. This short, but intensive course will be conducted over 8 lessons.
