What makes the BQA stand out is our unrivalled experience of teaching the Qur’an at all levels of a student’s journey, from the beginning to the final ijazah level and beyond.  Teaching the Qur’an is not simply a matter of finding a Qari / reciter but finding a teacher who knows how to teach and can identify strengths and weaknesses of a student.  At the BQA we have a huge range of teachers and this accumulative talent and experience is used to trouble shoot and identify solutions for students who may have struggled elsewhere.  Our primary teaching experience was gained physically teaching thousands of British students here in the UK and Alhamdulillah we are now able to transfer this experience online were it is desperately needed.  Below are the BQA’s distinctive and unique online features that mean you can stay rest assured you are in the best hands.

Teaching students to complete the memorisation of the entire Qur’an.
  • We place a heavy emphasize on effective communication and engagement. As we are based in the UK and serve students from the UK, Europe, USA, Canada and Austrialia, our front line teachers are all British and native English speakers who are experienced in teaching English speaking students.
  • Beyond the basic level we specialise in specialist Qur’an recitation areas such as Qur’an recitation by looking (Nazra) and hifz (memorisation). In fact we are the leading institutes in the UK for the memorisation of the Qur’an however all our huffaaz have come through the ranks with us, starting their journey with us.  We have specialist teachers for every level and dedicated supervisors to ensure that students are progressing as they should!
  • We TRAIN all our teachers to the standards that we expect. For this reason we have a consistent approach to teaching,  a high success rate and huge reputation for teaching English speaking children Qur’an recitation.  If all teachers taught in their own different ways, results would be mixed but with our consistent approach to teaching and standards we aim to never let a student down.
