About Us
Through a values-based approach, our students can grow to realise their full potential and play an active role as Muslims in their communities and wider society.

Our Story

We began as a small class at home, with the first students being Ustadh’s own family, whom have since gone on to become teachers themselves.

As an institute, we now have over 300 students ranging from 3 year olds in Pre-Maktab to some of our eldest students over 70 years of age studying the Qaidah with us in the last year.

Over the last year, we have provided hundreds of hours of classes, courses and activities. We cater to the needs of the community and members of all ages. From Quran recitation, Arabic language, life essentials skills for Teens and Further Maktab, Classes for sisters, Tafseer, Seerah and Lessons from Hadith as well as classes for Pre-Maktab and many more.

Our New Beginning

Moving to a new building

In July 2020 we were able to move to a brand new premises in order to accommodate more students. This was amidst the Covid-19 Pandemic and despite the restrictions and lockdowns, along with switching between online and in person learning, our students have remained with us and our numbers have continued to grow.

About The Ad-Duha Institute

The best of you is the one who learns the Quran and teaches it. (Bukari)

Ad-Duha Institute is a non-profit organisation that was unofficially set up in December 2011 with a humble start by offering Quran reading classes to neighbouring children to address the need in our locality.

Over the years by the grace of Allah the Almighty we have managed to naturally grow and expand our services to meet the growing needs of the local community.

With the growing list of students on our waiting list, we expanded to a new premises and launched more classes for all members of the community including specialised and engaging talks for teenagers, pre-maktab classes for infants, regular classes for adults offering Tajweed lessons, Arabic classes and talks both in English and Urdu.

Our aim has always been to equip students with the necessary knowledge and tools to develop a deep-rooted love and relationship with Sunni Islam. Through learning, understanding and embodying the Quran and Sunnah, students learn to fulfil their religious rites and duties in an informed manner.

We also focus on teaching key Muslim values, skills and attitudes, such as God-consciousness, respect, tolerance and mercy for all life. We aim to give students the skills to live and build healthy relationships with others in furthering the common good.

Through such a values-based approach, our students can grow to realise their full potential and play an active role as Muslims in their communities and wider society.

Madrasah is great and teachers are helpful. Theres a variety of courses they offer which is good as well. I wish there was more courses for working adults however. My child also learns from the madrasah. Im pleased with the progress and how the madrasah makes it fun with activities to engage the child.

The teachers are qualified and my kids progressing very well.
I am feeling blessed to write few words about this Ad Duha institute it’s a nice place to offer prayers and management of the institute is trying their best get community involved in religious activities. Maktab classes are focused on overall knowledge of Deen rather then just teaching kids how to read Quran I can see the positive difference in my child’s overall knowledge of Islam and of course improvement in tajweed. May Allah swt bless the kind people who are doing this great work in highly organised manner.

Friendly brothers who help run the madrasa, cant say anything but good things about them about the way they teach both their students,and how they spread knowledge amongst anyone who is eager for it. I would recommend anyone and everyone to send their children to learn in this institute,and for the others to attend their salah there.

I attend the sisters classes which have been very beneficial for me

They have helped me to correct my quran and salah, and the talks i have attended are always relatable to our lives today.

I think it is important to not only encourage your children but also yourself to improve your deen so the sisters classes are a must for all mother

Alhamdulillah my daughter has been attending for over 2 years and has gained a great deal of knowledge.

Quran tilawah with tajweed, Islamic studies and encouragement and incentive for her to start reading salah, which my daughter has started to do by herself and loves to go madrassah too.

The teachers have an excellent manner and method of teaching and give rewards & awards to keep students motivated with key focus on their Islamic identity.

May Allah swt make this madrassah a success put barakah in all their work and reward the teachers for their hard work and dedication. Ameen

Asalaaam Alaikum. My 2 children have been attending this madrassah for 5+ years and have gained a great deal of knowledge. Not only in reciting with tajweed but also Islamic manners.

The ustadh’s put in great effort within the children’s teaching. I am content that my children have gained excellent education within the deen as they are praying and focusing on their Islamic beliefs and are able to identify the rights and wrongs in Islam.

May Allah Swt make this madrassah a success and reward the ustadhs. Ameen

My daughter has been attending the weekend classes for a few months now and i have noticed a great deal of change in her pronounciation.

Not only is she learning the rules of tajweed but she also has the confidence to teach and correct me in my recitation.

So far she has learnt some stories of the prophets, the importance of cleanliness, how to perform wudu, and other various topics in her islamic studies
