Hifz Program


Mission: To create a healthy environment for children to memorize the Qur’an, with its proper recitation and tajweed, so that they may build a relation with the book of Allah, preserve it in their heart and develop a love for it that will enable them to follow it as they progress in life.  

Details: The lead teacher in the program is Imam Ali Tos, who is the official imam of DCA, a hafiz, and holds an ijazah in the Qur’an and is assisted by additional qualified Quran teachers.  

The school currently caters only to boys, ages 8-14, and this may be extended in age and gender, as demand arises.  The Child needs to be able to read the Quran.  If he is not fluent in reading, then he will be placed in level 1, where he will work on perfecting his reading before he may move to level 2 and begin memorizing.  The estimated completion time for Hifzh is 1-4 years depending on the child’s capabilities.

We have also opened up a pre-Hifz program for children under the age of 10, who do not know how to read the Qur’an and will be taught how to read.

The children benefit from the DCA’s splendid facilities, including the beautiful masjid, classroom spaces, the recreational facility for physical education, including swimming classes, fitness and various sports, and the onsite cafeteria for lunch.

The school runs all through the year with a 2-3 week break in summer and additional breaks through the year in accordance with the Islamic and legal holidays.

Parents also have the option to enroll their kids in the afterschool educational program for secular subject. There is an additional charge for this program.  The hifz program will run from 8am to 3pm, with PE, lunch and salah break from 12pm -1:45pm. The afterschool program will be from 3:15pm to 4:45pm

Fees and Application: The tuition fee is $525 per month, payable in 12 installments by the 3rd of every month, or $6000, if paid in advance for the year.  In addition, there is a onetime non-refundable application fee of $50.
