One hundred years more

One hundred years from now.. What would iLuvQuran look like... Perhaps it's premature to discuss this when we're barely a month old. But all great companies start with vision and direction. 

What would iLuvQuran look like 100 years from now?

A company that's changed the way people see and interact with Quran. 

A company whose customers, the young children we are teaching today, are the world's current capable leaders, with great thinking guided by the Quran. 

A company that continues to be grounded with the message and beauty of Allah's words.. But is continuously engaging, innovative and creatively empowering in our approach.   

The company values act as our compass to get us there.. Amin and inshaAllah. 

Be the change you wish to see in the world.

First Month- Progress Report

On this morning's weekly meeting we are discussing our students' progress. Alhamdulillah, varied hafazan levels- for the Mon- Fri Quranic Generation class- some students are memorizing half page a day, some two to three lines a day and some a line a day depending on the students' capabilities and the complexity of the verse. 

For the Quranic Seedling classes, some students have finished memorizing their first and second surahs.. Some are still working diligently on their memorization :). But alhamdulillah we are very happy that the ustaz and ustazahs mentioned that most of the students are very excited and happy to spend time with Quran and memorize. We believe that is the best news- the positive perception that our children have on the Quran- so that they grow up with their hearts always close to the Quran. Alhamdulillah, mashaAllah. 

Another amazing story shared was on the behavioral improvements seen in one of the students. Alhamdulillah. During the first week of class, he was seen as a but aggressive and had hit some of his friends. Alhamdulillah after almost a month at iLuvQuran, he is no longer as aggressive and even his teachers at his day school shared with us their amazement at his positive change. Alhamdulillah. 

Perhaps it's the daily Quran infused into their hearts, perhaps it's the loving ustaz/ahs, perhaps it's the positive peer environment.. But one thing for sure is Allah has been full of Rahmah to us and the students, giving much of the Quranic values and messages to our students. Alhamdulillah.

The first week of Junior Al-Hafiz

Alhamdulillah we've almost covered a week of the Junior Al-Hafiz programme. Feedback has been good so far, registration still coming in, and we are near our maximum number for this specific programme. Only 3 spots left for the afternoon Junior Al- Hafiz programme. Our challenge is to maintain the quality based our two main KPI's for ourselved, the children's memorization and their love of the Quran. 

We still have a few more spots for the morning teens and primary school Quranic Generation tahfiz programme. Quranic Seedlings programme for 5-8 year olds are almost filled up. So if you're interested, book a place pronto! :) 

Some pictures from this week:

Alhamdulillah when we pick up our Junior Al-Hafiz students from Sek Ren Islam Al-Amin their friends will ask, "Can we join the programme too?" Evidently the grapevine has been talking about the fun tahfiz programme alhamdu lillah ^_^. 

One of our Dream Team ustazahs, Ustazah Fadhilah even mentioned that she would love to have joined this type of tahfiz if she were growing up, alhamdu lillah :). 

We are working really hard to institutionalize our goals and modules while at the same time keeping our eyes out to keep getting better, inshaAllah. All goodness is surely from Allah. 

Wa billahi taufik wal hidayah :)
And to Allah belongs guidance - taufiq and hidayah.

Open day on 5/1 and first day of Junior Al-Hafiz

Bismillahi rahmani rahim

Alhamdulillah it's been three days since our Open Day on Sunday. It was a hectic day with visitors and most of the staff found ourselves voice-less and that we had forgotten about lunch in between the flow of visitors and friends coming in to find out more about iLuvQuran, alhamdulillah. 

Yesterday we had our first day of Junior Al- Hafiz and next Monday will be the first day of the second intake of Junior Al- Hafiz and the first week of Quranic Seedlings class. 

Alhamdulillah we have had excellent feedback, all praise to Allah, from the parents and students. Our ustazs and ustazahs have also been working very hard to deliver on our two pronged strategy of memorizing the Quran while having fun :). 

Among the feedback we've received, 

"My daughter was just supposed to stay for half of the session, but she loved it so much and insisted that I let her stay for the whole session"

"Usually when I pick my son up from school and day care, he will be very tired. But yesterday, when I picked him up from iLuvQuran he was so energetic and happy, alhamdulillah"

"I am so happy that my daughter started reading the surahs that she had already memorized, at home, without me asking her to. She also became more curious about stories in the Quran and asked me to share the stories with her"

"My son asked me, could I join iLuvQuran starting from the morning? I told him he has to go to school in the morning. He said he likes iLuvQuran more than school."

Alhamdulillah.. We are still working hard to improve our modules, our programmes, and to continuously deliver on the quality of fun and loving tahfiz center. Please make doa for us :)

So far our Junior Al-Hafiz programmes are almost full and our Q-Baby programme is already sold out. The Quranic Seedlings programme for 5-8 year olds still have some places and so do the morning teenager Quranic Generation and night/weekend adult memorization classes. 

Among the parents who have registered, is Puan Wardina, the well-known artist and TV host. She has registered all three of her children for our programmes after touring the facilities yesterday. One of UNIC's nashid singers has also registered his child.. And of course all the parents who are all celebrities in their own rights. Alhamdulillah and may the programme be beneficial for all our children's dunia and akhirat. Aamiin.
