After-School Qur’an Classes

MCC’s after-school Qur’an & Hifz program is designed to bring the Book of Allah to children ages 5 to 18. The program spans from beginners (basic reading) to Hifz (memorization). Space is limited and fills up quickly.

Qari Amar Bellaha, a seasoned Arabic teacher, oversees the Quran program. The Qur’an Program runs concurrently with our after-school Arabic program from August 7, 2024, to July 31, 2025.  School year calendar

We offer in-person instruction at MCC for beginners, advanced, and Hifz with Qari Amar Bellaha on Mondays and Wednesdays. Ustadha Muna Shwan leads instruction for beginners and advanced programs in person on Tuesdays and Thursdays and online on Mondays and Wednesdays. Both programs work with your child at their pace.
