Austin Peace Academy students have the option of partaking in the standard Arabic and Islamic Studies curriculumm or to select the more rigorous Hifz program. Students must be approved for admission into the Hifz program, exhibiting a dedication to the memorization of the Holy Qur’an. With the aid of a trained and certified hifz teacher, the student spends time learning the verses and the proper pronunciation.
One student memorized 14 juz in 4 years with APA’s Hifz program—memorizing 4 juz in 2013-2014 alone. Students show impressive improvement over the course of a year in memorization and start absorbing the verses and chapters more readily.
