By the immense grace of Allah, Dar al Zahra was first established in 2015 to provide service to the Ummah of the Prophet ﷺ in teaching Quran and Islamic studies through the prism of the Muhammadan love ﷺ. Amongst our teachers, we have some who have taught for many years, and having first hand experience of way in which Quran and Islamic Studies are taught. It is unfortunate to say, that too often we found the Quran was being taught in a manner, that is far from how it should be.
The Quran should be taught with love, in a manner that makes children appreciate and love their Lord Allah and His Prophet ﷺ. It should be taught in a way that children love to learn, are motivated and eager to learn, but sadly we seldom came across such places.
It is at this point that we decided that we would like a place of our own where we can try and provide a safe, secure and motivating institution where we can teach children the recitation of the Quran with the correct pronunciation and at the same time as teaching them, we would teach them Fiqh, Seerah, Aqidah and most importantly how to love The Prophet ﷺ.
In 2015, Allah Ta’ala, through His Immense Mercy, blessed us with a most beautiful and unique place, and that is when our journey began. We started off with 20 students and one teacher and now Alhamdulilah have hundreds of students and several teachers teaching a range of classes. Please see our classes page for information of this.
Alhamdulilah, Dar al Zahra has been growing from strength to strength, with ongoing training for all staff to ensure they are equipped with the best of skills to teach students in the best possible manner.
We offer a safe and secure environment for children to learn the deen in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere, not only are they learning to recite or memorise the Qur’an, but learning their Fard al Ayn and much more.
