OUR APPROACH TO TEACHING-
As-Suffa teachers aim to create a safe, and stress-free environment in our Hifdh classes. The method we have adopted is to recite the reading (this depends on the capability of the student), then revise previse juzz’ (approx. the previous ½ juzz memorised) and dorr (the previous juzz memorized). If a student has memorized from 1-2 juzz, they are required to do ½ page of dorr every day, between 3-5 students are required to do 1 juzz of dorr every day, for more than 6 juzz, students must do 2 juzz of dorr each day. After the completion of each juzz, students are tested to recite the entire juzz in one sitting and must pass to progress. We heavily emphasise on tajweed, and this is marked daily, and weekly goals are set to perfect tajweed application.
Ustadh Omar Dridj
Ustadh started his journey of seeking Islam after university in France before travelling to Karachi, Pakistan. He there finished his Hifdh over a few months, before joining the Alimmiyah. Unfortunately, due to visa issues, after 3 years of studies, he was unable to complete his studies. Upon the advice of his senior teachers, Ustadh travelled to Mauritania in 2018. In Pakistan, like the UK, Islamic establishments follow a structured and set curriculum, with little flexibility. However, in Mauritania, this was different, where institutes have the mosques within, and 80% of the population is Hafidh. Ustadh Omar then studied 2 years before coming to UK in 2020, as it caters well to the Muslim community. Ustadh is currently an Imaam, as well a student and teacher of deen, and with his vast experience, hopes to better the Hifdh system in the UK .
Ustadh Muaaz Amiji
Ustadh was born in Surat, India. He completed his Hifdh at the age of 15 with his beloved teacher Hafidh Masuood Feyzabadi in Madrasah Darsghah Mulla– one of the oldest Islamic schools in the city. He continued to further his Islamic education until Hidayyah in the same institute, before transferring to Darul Uloom Jamia Asharafiyya for his final two years. Here, he studied Ahadith with some of the great scholars, namely Mufti Aarif Hasan Agravi, Qari Abdur-Rashid Ajmery, and Mufti Habib Paalanpuri (May Allah be pleased with them all). Ustadh Muaaz has been teaching Hifdh for ten years and is a senior hifdh teacher at As-Suffa, where he recites the Taraweeh prayer in Ramadhan.
