Al Haramain Qur’an Schools is a UK based body which operates with the singular aim of inspiring people to appreciate the beauty of the Qur’an through recitation and preservation. This representative body is non-partisan, non-theological, and politically neutral, focused only on its stated aim of extolling the beautiful Qur’an.
The beautification and eloquence of recitation at the heart of Al Haramain Qur’an School’s programmes serve several purposes. We seek to spiritually develop individuals and communities while perfecting and reflecting upon the reading of the Qur’an. In addition, we seek to elevate and advance the Qur’an’s pristine understanding to our students and, indeed, the wider communities we serve. We are proud to have assistance in this endeavor through the support and endorsement of a number of notable, non-controversial world-renowned reciters of the Qur’an including the Imams of the Haram (Makkah and Madinah).
Principles and teachings in the Qur’an transcend, and resonate with, the UK Muslim community. Al Haramain Qur’an Schools aspire to educate through sound Qur’anic teachings, with the explicit intention of avoiding misunderstanding and promoting the adoption and adaptation of Qur’anic practices and principles by Muslims in the UK. These virtuous principles underpin strong and harmonious community relations, as well as facilitating dialogue, encouraging advocacy, and rectifying intolerance and bigotry. These are universal practices and principles entirely in keeping with cohesive Islamic and British values.
Tangible role models are vital for children to model themselves on in specific areas of their learning. As such, we are delighted that the Imams from the Haramain (Makkah and Madinah), the very inspiration behind these schools, are wholeheartedly in support of our endeavors.
Technology is no longer an optional extra for any institution dedicated to meaningful education and Al Haramain Qur’an Schools are committed to reaping the benefits of technology in delivering quality Qur’anic education to students in the UK. Only in this way can we truly involve future generations in their own learning and keep the beauty of the Qur’an relevant to them.
Thanks to improved technology, schools across the world now have access to the latest equipment and teaching methods in their classes. All this technology serves a number of purposes. First, it helps connect with students through mediums they use every day. Facebook groups, for instance, are widely used by teachers to supplement learner and encourage collaboration between students. Second, integrating technology into educational environments keeps children engaged. In a world where children frequently learn to use tablets and other technology as part of their development at home, it seems counterproductive to remove this technology from their lives during their official education at school. Integrating technology ensures that children are learning in a way that is both familiar to them and which can challenge them, often more so than traditional learning methods. Finally, it’s worth noting that the idea of the passive learning model is all but defunct. Children are no longer willing to be taught in sterile, boring ways. If teachers want to invigorate and enthuse their students, technology must be in the room.
It is equally vital that technology is involved when Qur’anic studies are being taught. Now, more than ever, innovation is required to ensure that future generations are as engrossed and energised by the teachings of the Qur’an as their ancestors. We can no longer hope to keep them interested by passive learning or textbook teaching alone. If we want to
ensure that the teachings of the Qur’an are taken forward from generation to generation, technology must be brought into classical teachings. Educators in the West have adopted these technologies and Muslims owe it to their children and grandchildren to proactively pursue these teaching methods too.
Al Haramain Qur’an Schools are the first in the UK and Europe to incorporate augmented reality (AR) technology into Qur’anic teaching materials. We understand that instilling a lifelong love of the Qur’an into students can only be achieved by making use of the technology that’s available to us. This is only one way in which Al Haramain Qur’an Schools are doing things differently to other Qur’an schools in the UK and beyond.
The pioneering education system offered by Al Haramain Qur’an Schools is unlike that on offer from any other Qur’an school or Madrasah in the UK. We are dedicated to quality teaching of traditional Qur’an-related studies using the very best in modern technology, ensuring that exclusive innovation and interactive study materials enhance learning.
