Students of all levels and experience are welcome to register by filling out the form below. If you are a beginner student, please click here.
If you are a student currently learning from a teacher in your local community, face to face, please do NOT register for this program. Unless the local teacher can no longer provide you the instruction you require, a teacher is simply not available, or a student cannot reach a teacher, there is no substitute for in-person instruction.
The Halaqah is taught by Umm Zahrah, in English. She holds an Ijazah from Sh. Waleed al-Meneesey حفظه الله in the 10 authentic ways of recitation:
Students are taught according to their respective levels, by turn, whether that is a beginner level (practising reading) or advanced (learning the Qiraa’aat).
The rules of recitation are taught as needed and required by the recitation itself; they are not taught separately, nor does instruction involve delving into Tajweed theory in depth. The recitation will remain the one and only pathway through which the rules are mastered and understood; focus on the rules of recitation will be for the purpose of practical application only.
All Halaqaat take place on Skype as a group; anyone, from any part of the world, is able to join these groups if the timing is suitable. Additionally, the group as a whole will communicate via the Well Versed WhatsApp group for important announcements.
There are specific days of the week and times that the teacher is available to teach. Students are at liberty to come on any day they wish, and as frequently as they are able. They need not inform the teacher about when they will be attending. This allows for learning to become flexible enough to allow a level of customisation; if one day does not work for a student, they are free to come on any other day the teacher is available and comes online.
