About Us

The Hafiz Academy based at 67 Camberwell road in Crawford was established in January 2000.

We offer adult classes such as Quran reading, Tajweed, and reading the Quran with understanding.

Students intending memorizing the Quran are welcome to attend the Hafiz Academy, provided he/she is able to recite the Holy Qur’an fluently. The rules of TAJWEED are taught to the Hafiz students once they have registered as a student at the Hafiz Academy.

Over the past 20 years, we have produced a number of publications. The iconic Colour Coded Quran was initiated and printed by the Hafiz Academy in Cape Town. In 2019 we launched the Translation Colour Coded Quran where the meaning of the verse is provided below the Arabic verse.

We have commenced with our online Tajweed course on 01 June 2020 and will be offering many more online courses so that a global community can benefit from our lessons.

Our future online classes will include Quran literacy class – Recite the Quran with understanding

and Memorising the Quran with understanding ONLINE

Curriculum

Reading

The simplified definition of Tajweed means to recite every letter and word of the Quran with its proper pronunciation. The Quran is the final revelation from Allah for all mankind.

Reflecting

The Quran is different from any other material that is memorized such as poetry and prose. And this is because the Quran is quickly lost from one’s mind. 

Memorizing

Among the things which aid the memorization is that the memorizer should keep for himself a specific mushaf (copy of the Quran) which he should never change.

 

Platform

The platform being used for this course is Microsoft Teams and the hole office365 suit.  

Why must we recite the Quran with Tajweed & Understanding

simplified definition of Tajweed means to recite every letter and word of the Quran with its proper pronunciation. The Quran is the final revelation from Allah for all mankind. Without a doubt we are rewarded for reciting the Quran, however, reciting the Quran with understanding will be a reward A si ing experience for the soul.

Tajweed Al-Quran

The Quran is a revelation that contains the rules, regulations about this world, and the afterworld. The revelation from Allah shows us the straight path in order to attain the ultimate success and rewards. The Holy Quran is the ultimate infallible source of legislation for mankind to live an organized life.

Muslims must endeavor to recite and understand the Quran. The Quran revealed in Arabic is therefore to be recited in the language it was revealed. The Holy Quran is the book of ultimate guidance. In fact, it’s not a book for reading and reciting only. It’s a book of learning and understanding. Islam is a practical religion and the Quran guides us about every aspect of our lives.

What Is Tajweed

Tajweed is an Arabic word which linguistically means proficiency. Tajweed Al Quran means reading every word of the Holy Quran with the right proficiency. In other words, tajweed means giving every letter of the Holy Quran its rights and dues of characteristics.

Importance of Understanding the Quran

As the Sacred Scripture of Quran is full of information that transforms the lives of millions of people around the world, therefore, it is imperative to recite and understand it in local language for better absorbing its wisdom. The Almighty Lord says:

“[This is] a blessed Book which We have revealed to you, [O Muhammad], that they might reflect upon its verses and that those of understanding would be reminded.” [Quran, 38: 29]

The above mentioned Ayah clearly signifies that it is the spiritual duty of a Muslim to reflect upon the holy verses which are only possible when they are read in understandable language.

Narrated `Uthman:

The Prophet () said, “The best among you (Muslims) are those who learn the Qur’an and teach it.”

5. Understanding is the Way to Memorising

Among the things which greatly aid the process of memorisation is understanding the verses that one has memorised and knowing their relationship and link, one to another
