Our Qaidah courses in Birmingham are distinguished as exceptional educational programs. These classes, led by committed teachers, impart the knowledge of not only the recognition of Arabic letters but with a strong focus on impeccable Tajweed— the precise articulation and rules pertaining to the recitation of the Qur’an. Tailored to accommodate diverse abilities and age groups, we meticulously evaluate each student, ensuring their placement in a class that aligns perfectly with both their age and proficiency.

Acknowledging the varied learning paces among students, we set ourselves apart at Dar al Zahra by wholeheartedly committing to every individual. Our unwavering dedication ensures that each student receives personalised attention and comprehensive support, fostering their journey to unlock their fullest potential in Quranic studies.

Recognising the foundational importance of Qaidah in Quranic education, we consider it one of the most vital elements in learning how to recite the Qur’an correctly. Mastering its fundamentals lays the groundwork for a lifelong connection with the Quran. By instilling a correct understanding from the beginning, we pave the way for our students to effortlessly articulate the Quran with precision throughout their lives InshaAllah Ta’ala.


Upon successfully completing the Qaidah curriculum, each student undergoes a thorough evaluation to assess their proficiency. If the teacher identifies a satisfactory grasp of the Qaidah, the student transitions to learning the Qur’an, commencing with Juz A’mma, the 30th section of the Quran. After achieving mastery in this segment, students progress to the starting the 1st Juz until the entire Qur’an is completed with correct Tajweed inshaAllah Ta’ala.

This intentional initiation with the 30th Juz is grounded in a thoughtfully crafted educational approach, recognising that students often experience increased ease and fluency in recitation after the meticulous completion of the Qaidah. This considerate approach not only facilitates a smoother transition but also empowers students to build upon the solid foundation established during their Qaidah studies. As they gradually advance through the Quranic chapters, students refine their memorisation skills and deepen their understanding of the sacred text*, creating a seamless bridge between foundational learning and the more intricate aspects of Quranic recitation*. This deliberate sequencing ensures a smooth and enriching progression in their Quranic education, fostering a profound connection with the divine verses.
