Juzu Tabarak Group
Sr. Hajar Essemlali has done an amazing job with them, even challenging them to memorize with page numbers. The children range from ages 7 to 13 years, and yes age gap is irrelevant for reciting the Qur'aan or Islamic learning. The young respect the elder students, and elder students are humbled in presence of young.
Read, Rise, Begin your Journey!
We share with you some of the work our children, some as young as 7 years, are capable of when we provide them with a comfortable learning environment and raise our expectations of them. Qur’aan is first of the Islamic Sciences recommended to learn, as advised by our predecessors, and when our youth and children learn to be patient and persevere as they learn Tajweed concepts, write the Surahs, analyze the rules, and sharpen their memorization skills, inshaa Allah we hope they will continue to do so with other areas of Islamic learning, as well as learning of any subject in general.
Daniah Khan - 7 years
Daniah has been with Izzah since she was 5 years old. She is an excellent student and has memorized Juzu Tabarak this year.
Rakan Elghirani - 10 years

Batoul AlHussein (15 years) & Sidrah AlHussein (14 years)
2 young sisters from Syria, Batoul AlHussein (grade 10) & Sidra AlHussein (Grade 9) in IB program, speaking 3 languages while keeping up their commitment to studying Qur’aan every Sunday. They were too shy to share a video, may Allah (swt) preserve their hayaa’/modesty! They are truly examples for our young sisters to strive for best in this life and hereafter, may Allah (swt) protect them and keep them steadfast on the right path of Islam.
