Hifz Section
Being a renowned Islamic Institution, we have a standard Hifz Section. As ability to recite from the Holy Quran is considered to be an obligatory matter, children are taken care of this subject from the very beginning. This helps each child to have a common basic platform ( Pre-Hifz) on reciting from the Holy Quran which allows them later to easily migrate to hifz and adapt with Nazera section. After completing Hifz no student will be deprived of general education because we provide the opportunity to continue Hifz and general education moderately.
To maintain the International Hifz standard, a good number of Hafiz are present in our Madrasa of whom many are trained abroad and awarded with many national and international prizes. So, the students get proper guidelines to prepare themselves to compete with others in different types of competitions. It is mandatory for the residential students to follow the guidelines of Islam properly.
We teach the students Arabic as a language. So that, they can understand the meaning of the Holy Quran and can implement the teaching of the holy Quran in their lives. Gradually, they achieve the capability of inviting others towards the path of Islam.

Why learning Quran?

The Holy Quran is the last and final message of Almighty Allah through His Prophet ( Peace and Blessings be upon Him) which guarantees success for mankind in this world and life hereafter. Allah Almighty has laid down all the laws of valuable knowledge, good deeds and prosperity of the whole mankind in His Book ( Quran). In the present era the Muslims are politically, financially, culturally and socially reached the verge of decay and destruction only because they have turned a deaf ear to Holy Quran. The only solution to overcome the miserable plight of Muslim is to resort to the teachings of Holy Quran. It is stated in the Holy Quran Surah Al-Qamar, Verses:17 and We have certainly made the Quran easy for remembrance, So is there any who will remember?
• Reading the Quran fulfils an Islamic duty.
• The Quran will be a proof for us on the Day of Judgment.
• The Quran will intercede for us on the Day of Judgment.
• You status in this life will be raised.
• The Quran is the key for peace and satisfaction.
• There are ten rewards for each letter you recite from the Holy Quran.
• The recite’s of the Quran will be in the company of the noble and obedient angels.
• Your position in paradise is determined by the amount of Quran you memorize in this life!
• The Quran will lead you to paradise.
Importance of memorizing of Quran (Hifzul Quran:

Muslim parents wants for their children o learn Quran and some parents want for their children to memories the Holy Quran by heart. It is a great reward for the parents and their child who is Hafizul-Quran. There are simple steps you need to take before memorizing Quran.
 The first step is to start learning Quran from a good Qaari. A processional person who can teach Quran with proper Tajweed rules and who is certified Qaari. It is important to learn Quran with Tajweed because if a child has learnt Quran with wrong accent then it is difficult for him to read with correct accent and it takes time to change his habit. To start with as a beginner a student who is going to memorize Quran, he needs to start reading Quran with Makhaaraj ( Proper pronunciation of Arabic letters). After being able to read Arabic letters and Quran with proper pronunciation, Hifz student needs to learn Tajweed while he memorize the Quran.
 It is important to read Quran regularly. It is important for students who are memorising the Quran or who have already learnt the Quran by heart. Prophet Muhammad Sallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam said in a Hadith which is narrated in Bukhari and Muslim: ”Read the Qur’an regularly. By the One in Whose Hand Muhammad’s soul is, it escapes from memory faster than a camel does from its tying ropes
 Start memorising (Hifz from the sort Sura’s of 30th Para. It is also important to start Hifz from the short Suras. If you know more Suras of the Quran then you have more confidence in memorising rather than if you start from Surabaqrah. When it takes time to memorise only one Sura Al-Bararah you might have lack of confidence. You also need you know what Hizf category suites you. [2]

      The Pagan Roots of Allah

      by Fesenjoon2
      25-Sep-2012

      In spite of the prevalent mainstream description of Allah, there continues to exist a somewhat controversial of Islam, put forth by some scholars and a number of Christian groups [1][2][3], in which it is claimed that the Islamic deity Allah has pre-Islamic pagan roots stemming from local mythology. According to this “popular”[4] view, the chief deity of pre-Islamic Mecca “was the moon-god called al-ilah (meaning the god or the idol), which was shortened to Allah in pre-Islamic times”.[5]

      One line of this argument has been publicized in recent times by the author/pastor Robert Morey in his book ”The moon-god Allah in the archeology of the Middle East”. Morey, who cites among other references a 1950s era archeological excavation in Hazor, Israel, argues that the same name of God of Islam, Arabic ”Allah”, was an epithet of Hubal in pre-Islamic Mecca.
