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.
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.
These include funding our much needed social branch addressing the needs of the community through projects such as our upcoming Youth Club and Sisters Coffee Mornings.
Your donations will go towards helping the Madrassah running all the current courses and activities including our FREE courses and Maktab Prizes, along with supplies needed for youth projects.
Both daily Salah and Jummu'ah take place in the building. Your donation will be a means of reward for you for all of the people worshipping and benefitting from the facility on a daily basis.
We have many students that interact with us daily online, whom benefit from the content we produce and distribute. Donations will allow us to expand our online platform to reach a wider and more diverse audience.
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.
