SOFA Ladies Quran Online

New 2022 Programme
Hijabi Adult Online Learning

The SOFA Ladies Qur’an Class is an online programme to provide a female-only environment to learn to read the Qur’an and apply the rules of Tajweed. 

Courses run every 3 months in which students progress during their learning journey through 5 stages. A syllabus is followed where students learn the foundation levels and work their way up to reaching their final goal of correctly reciting the Qur’an independently.

The classes run once a week for an hour and holds up to 6 students in each class.

Support is given to students where homework is set and recordings are shared on YouTube. A reading assessment is given at the end of each course testing the student’s knowledge and allowing them to progress to the next stage.

How to Apply & Course Fees

All classes cost £20 per month, per student. All proceeds go directly to the parent charity: The Suffa Educational Foundation, that runs completely on donations.

To Apply:

  1. Every prospective student must fill in and submit the online form below.
  2. Following this, the student will have a short online session with Programme Co-ordinator Fatihah to ensure that they are in class level that suits them best.
  3. After the student’s class level has been confirmed, if there is space in the group class, they will be asked to set up the monthly course fee through our separate payments page. Upon setting up the payment the class zoom link will be shared with the student.

    However, if there is no space currently available in the group class, the student will be added to a waiting list instead. If a space opens up they will be invited to the class immediately. If there are multiple students in the waiting list, a second class group may be opened.
