MISSION STATEMENT

ABOUT ALFURQAN HIFTH PROGRAM

Alfurqan Hifth Program has been initiated by the Muslim Association of Canada (MAC) and has been established in Kitchener since September 2009.

With four levels and highly qualified teachers, Alfurqan Hifth Program aims to teach students how to read the Quran with proper pronunciation (Tajweed) and teach them the meanings (Tafseer) of the ayahs. Alfurqan Hifth Program equips the students with the tools to enable them to memorize the entire Quran.

Alfurqan provides its full-time program during regular school hours. Hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 9:25 am to 12:35 pm. Students attend the first period with their homeroom class, then they attend the Hifth Program classes from the second period to the fourth, i.e. 9:25 am to 12:35 pm. Students then rejoin their homeroom teacher from 12:35 pm to 4:00 pm to resume the rest of their academic subjects.
