Part Time Hifz

Excellence is Religious Education

Our Mission

Our Vision

It is the aim of the IFT Evening Hifz Program for students to complete the Hifz-ul Qur’an under the guidance of qualified and experienced Teachers according to the tenets of Tajweed and Tarteel. We seek to develop in each student a positive identity as a Muslim who is equipped spiritually, physically, and intellectually to compete is today’s world, in accordance with Islamic principles. We hope to establish within each student a strong commitment to faith, family, community, and humanity.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How will I know about upcoming events at the IFT Evening School?

A. There are multiple ways to keep informed of upcoming events. Emails will be sent out periodically with any important notices or reminders. Notices and reminders will also be posted in the Evening Madressah section of the Islamic Foundation website, insha-Allah.

Q. What do I need to know about visiting the school?

A. We take educating your child seriously and try to keep distractions to a minimum. As such, we request that all parents arrange an appointment with their child's teacher either before or after class if you would like to have a meeting.

Some children, especially those new to the school, may cry and get upset when arriving for class. Parents may soothe their child outside the classroom but should not come inside in fairness to all students.

Q. How often will I receive information on my child's progress?

A. Report Cards are distributed twice a year: mid-term and at the end of the year. Parents are encouraged to contact their child's teacher any time they have a question or concern. Parent/teacher communication is vital for the success of your child.

The agenda is also an important communication tool and should be checked and signed daily.

Q. Who will contact me when my child is having difficulty?

A. If your child is experiencing academic difficulties, the classroom teacher will contact you.

Q. When will my money be deducted from my bank account?

A. Fees will be deducted from the bank account between the 8th and the 15th of every month, from January to December, excluding the month of Ramadaan.

Q. What will I need to do if I wish to remove my child from the Full-Time Hifz program?

A. Parents who wish to remove their child from the Evening Madressah will need to complete a “Withdrawal Form” and submit it before the 5th of the month in order to put a stop on the withdrawals of fees. Parents may also email us at to notify us of a withdrawal. Verbally informing the teacher or office is not enough.

Q. What happens in the event of bad weather?

A. In the event of a school closure due to bad weather, a notice will be posted on our website and an email will be sent, notifying of a school closure. Insha-Allah, parents will also receive a call home whenever possible informing of the cancellation of school.
