QURANIC STUDIES PROGRAM
Quran Teacher – All Levels
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!
