Quran Recitation + Memorization

There are two class levels – beginner and intermediate – taught by our Religious Director, Sheikh Asim Buyuksoy.

Beginners
  • Learn the alphabet
  • How to read with proper pronunciation (tajweed)
  • Learn and memorize the short chapters (suras) in the 30th part of the Quran
Intermediate
  • Enhance your basic reading proficiency
  • Memorize longer chapters (sura) of the Quran
How the Class Works

For beginning students, Sheikh Asim helps them practice the alphabet and pronunciation in front of the class. Intermediate students work to memorize one page of the Quran or practice their memorization during this time. Students are called on to recite what they have practiced and are given feedback for the benefit of the entire class.

Reading Material

Beginners use “How to Recite Quran” (copies are provided in class) and all students are asked to bring their own Quran.

Parents Circle

It takes a village. All parents want to raise healthy and responsible human beings. As American Muslim parents trying to instill faith, pride and service in our kids, we have unique challenges and few spaces to share notes with other parents. It’s not an easy task and no one should do it alone. Become a community of parents helping parents when you join the ICSC Parents Circle.

Facilitated by ICSC members Tarek Shawky and Edina Lekovic, the Parents Circle is a safe and supportive environment where parents can be open and honest.

Every Sunday, we teach each other by sharing and learning from our collective experiences, and no topic is off limits. Each session is an opportunity to meet other parents and discuss a common issue we face by drawing on research and tools from parenting experts. From screen time to discipline to nurturing open and honest relationships, we tackle a host of questions faced by parents of all ages.

The Parents Circle is open to all so bring an open mind and positive attitude and let’s build our village together.
