Northeast Islamic Community Center of NY held an Quran educational workshop in Brooklyn,NY on October 29, 2017 to train both new and old  Quran teachers  in the methods and functioning of Quran education. Saliha Durmaz, who is NEICC Quran Education Coordinator served orientation to NEICC NY members. She shared techniques that are encouraged in all divisions of our education service and best-practices to improve the overall quality of Quran academy.

NEICC Quran Academy offers help in learning the Quran. The classes are some weekdays and weekend two hours a day.The kids and adults  learn how to read Quran while learning Tajweed.

Quran requires extra practice that is why two hours a day twice a week is good for the kids. We don’t only just teach, but also help the kids build a lifelong relationship and furthermore reading and reflecting over the Quran fulfills an Islamic duty. Learning how to read Quran at a young age will make it easier for the kids to grasp the knowledge, because learning it later may take longer time and effort.

Students get opportunity to recite the Holy Quran with proper makhraj and tajweed. In three hours classes, which is free and open to public, students learn not only about the Holy Quran, but also Muslim Beliefs; Allah (God Almighty), Revered Prophets, Divine Books, Divine Destiny and Decree, The Hereafter, Angels. 5 Pillars of Islam; Testimony of Faith, Prayers, Fasting, Alms and Charity, Pilgrimage (Hajj). Muslim morals and manners etc.
