My journey with the Fatimah Institutue 2020

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركات ه
This has been a year of growth, development and most importantly of fellowship. What better way to connect with your fellow seekers other than through Quran? Together we learnt what the Divine expects of us and then also on how to fulfil that obligation. Thanks to the skill, knowledge and patience of our teachers, I now have a global picture of what Quran contains. I am also equipped with the grammar tools to figure out the syntax of the Arabic language. Overall, a beautiful, productive year spent building a foundation on which to base the rest of my life; living in the knowledge that Quran is the manual and mine is the labour of love.

My journey with the Fatimah Institutue

And Allah is the best of planners!
The class of 2020 can attest to this
We started on this journey-each of us so different and with our very different experiences and expectations. We had signed up for a Full time face to face commitment. And so we started our journey together each of us with different levels of exposure to the Arabic language, each of us with different abilities to commit extra study time but all of us with the eagerness and thirst for knowledge constantly being spurred on by four of the most committed teachers I have met. And just over 2 months into our journey, Allah had his own plan.
All our lives changed, and we moved to an online programme which came with its minor challenges but none of which the Barakah of studying the Quran could not overpower.
So what started off as a group of strangers pursuing the most amazing opportunity at their doorstep turned into the most amazing sisterhood of the most diverse group of ladies each of which on their own journey but all with the common goal of understanding the Quran and its intimate secrets and mysteries.

So if you are reading this, take the next step-there is nothing more rewarding than this opportunity.
Jazakallah Khair to the Fatimah institute and it’s amazing teachers for starting us on this journey and for this bond of Ahlul Quran.

My journey with the Fatimah Institutue

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركات ه
Participating in the programme with The Fatimah Institute has afforded me the opportunity to learn, share and grow intellectually and spiritually. I have experienced the attitude of the students and educators to be compassionate and accepting and not judgmental of each other. This is a culture inculcated by our educators. There is understanding that we are all on our own quest and so respect for each other is paramount. We have a wide spectrum of students: from teenagers to grandmothers, those pursuing Hifz classes and others taking gap years, to professionals – who have made the time to study the Arabic language and Quraan.
The approach that the educators use is one of mutual respect and positivity.
The coursework is laid out in a logical way and the methodology used is easy to follow. The patience of our educators to explain and reinforce the concepts is a definite advantage as compared with what other students share about other similar programmes. The workbooks used and exercises to be completed align with the theory and they offer adequate examples to apply the theory. The presentations used are a very useful.
It has been a “safe” space where I can endeavour to improve my knowledge and practice of Islam. The most satisfying outcome has been my increased ability to recognize and appreciate the message of the Quraan.
I thank the Zahrah Institute for their unwavering support and will recommend this programme to other seekers of knowledge. The fulltime course requires dedication and so prospective students should invest more time than the actual lesson time to prepare for each lesson and complete the exercises to consolidate their knowledge.
I am truly grateful and blessed to have been afforded this opportunity to study with the Fatimah Institute and look forward to the next phase of my pursuit to understanding the messages of the Quraan next year إِنْ شَاءَ ٱ
