Qaida literally means ‘base’.
The Qaida is to develop the Makharij or Arabic pronunciation, which is the foundation of Hifz and Tilawaah.
This is the first course that a student goes through before they can start reading the Quran. The course is designed to teach the Arabic letters, their pronunciation, Makharij and how to join them together properly.
The Qaida course also covers the basic rules of tajweed without going into the details of the theory of tajweed. An Ijazah level teacher ensures the best possible start and oversees the Qaida learning process before student’s progress to the Nazirah Course.
The School assesses all students upon entry in regards to their competencies in Arabic pronunciation and ensures that students receive a strong foundation in reading the Quran with the correct Makharij.
