Welcome to the Quranic Tafseer Department. The ultimate goal of the Tayba Quranic Tafseer Program is to give your children an age-appropriate understanding of the virtues, meaning, and significance of the Holy Quran, surah-by-surah. We aim to get children motivated and excited about the Quran, utilizing vocabulary for comprehension, stories for both education and entertainment, videos and activities for engagement, and special Quranic duaas and instruction for application. Through this comprehensive approach, we hope to help your children build a relationship with the Quran that will deeply enhance and improve their memorization and positively affect them for the rest of their lives.
As students master various surahs, practices, and duaas, they will earn digital badges to encourage them to continue practicing and progressing in the program. At Tayba we like to encourage and reward students for their hard work, so we also host occasional contests and events that will give students the opportunity to showcase all their hard work. Read below to learn more about our program.
The study programs at Tayba reflect our philosophy of Authenticity, Engagement & Exploration. With that in mind, we only utilize texts that adhere to the Quran and Sunnah. We strive to offer a well-rounded and generally universal course of study, avoiding issues of major debate or specificity. We believe this approach allows us to provide a strong foundation in Islamic knowledge to a greater number of Muslim families across the globe.
The Tayba Quranic Tafseer Curriculum has THREE main areas of focus:
- Facts & Virtues of each Surah
- Simplified Tafseer
During each term students will explore these subjects at varying degrees. The content and level of detail is adjusted according to each class level, so that while students may be on the same track, learning the same concepts and information, the depth, detail, and delivery will be quite different dependent upon which class level they are at. As years progress, students will naturally be revisiting some of the same concepts and information, so that the early years give a basic foundation and later years offer a deeper understanding.
Texts & Resources
The Quranic Tafseer program features the Mini Tafseer Series produced by Ad-Duha Institute. The series is based on the Tafsir Ibn Kathir and provides young learners with an easy-to-understand approach to learning about the Book of Allah. The combination of authenticity, simplicity and intriguing worksheets and activities make this series a welcome addition to our curriculum.

At Tayba, we aim to make our online classroom more interesting and exciting for students. Often we incorporate online videos and animations, graphics and illustrations, and other resources; in which case all materials are carefully reviewed by our Department Head to ensure adherence to our standards. Additionally we utilize a wide range of enrichment materials produced by Creative Motivations, a well-known Islamic Educational company in the US. Finally, we also produce many of our supplementary materials and online resources ourselves.
At Tayba we utilize digital badge and point programs to encourage students in their studies. We also launch exciting contests and competitions. Be sure to subscribe to the blog to get updates about upcoming contests and events. Click the image below to learn more about our Badge Program!

Quranic Fluency Teacher
I am a Certified teacher for Al-Qaida Al-Nooraniah and Tajweed. I’ve taught Al-Qaida Al-Nooraniah and Arabic in an Islamic Sunday school and have also been a private home tutor for Tajweed and Nooraniah. My favorite reciter is Sheikh Mohamed Ayob and I really enjoy listening to his beautiful recitations as well as reciting myself. I also enjoy the Tajweed, stories, rules and miracles of our Holy Book,al hamdulillah, the Quran is truly a treasure trove of wonder. Teaching Quran and Tajweed has always been a dream of mine and I am so blessed to be able to pass on the knowledge and skills that Allah has blessed me with to help educate and inspire the youth of the next generation, inshaa’Allah.
I am Sudanese/Canadian and live in Texas, USA and, al hamdulillah, have been blessed to travel a lot between those three countries. In my free time, I love to cook and care for my little ones (May Allah bless them and all the little Muslim children), but my favorite pastime is when the kids all gather around me and we go wild and do our crazy dancing to Islamic Nasheeds! My family is a lot of fun, masha’Allah, and I am blessed to have them. I am so excited to become a part of your child’s journey into the Quran and look forward to meeting you and your little ones in the classroom!
