Subjects we teach

We teach a range of Islamic courses at Al-Farooq School. We strongly believe that a child’s development in Islamic knowledge is not about completing the Quran but also to understand and implement its teaching. The subjects we teach include:

Arabic: Students learn how to read, write, listen, and speaking.

Islamic Studies: Students learn basic knowledge pertaining to Islam (beliefs, morals, manners, hadith, etc) so that they can be good Muslim role models.

Quran: Students learn Quran with tajweed to ensure that they have the correct recitation of the quran.
