Program Overview

Islamic Learning Foundation of ICNA-NJ is excited to announce its first ever Qur’anic Arabic Summer Intensive! It will be a five-week course taught by ILF instructor Imam Asif Hirani, covering course material from his Arabic 101, 102, and 103 class series. This program will consist of two parts: a comprehensive understanding of Arabic grammar, and a grammatical tafsir of some of the most frequently recited surahs of the Qur’an. This will give the students an opportunity to practically implement what they are learning in class. The only prerequisite for this class is to be able to join Arabic letters and read words and sentences, no prior knowledge of Arabic grammar is necessary!
We also have some exciting field trips planned for our students, such as a hiking retreat and a Fajr tafsir session at the beach! Local scholars such as Sr. Sumara Khan and Dr. Abu Zayd will also be joining us as guest speakers during the course of the program inshaAllah. Take advantage of this exciting opportunity and spend this summer increasing your understanding of the Book of Allah. As the Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “The best amongst you are those who learn the Qur’an and teach it” (Bukhari). Don’t miss out!

Imam Asif Hirani attained a Bachelors of Business Administration in Fashion Designing before he switched his field to Islamic Studies. He then completed a one-year course on Qur’anic Understanding from Quran Academy (originated by Dr. Israr Ahmed), followed by a Masters in Islamic Studies from Karachi University. He is currently in the process of completing his PhD in Quran and Tafseer at Al-Madina University in Malaysia. Imam Asif served as an Imam of MCNJ for almost 3 years before he joined ICNA. He is not only an outreach director, program manager, youth leader, and family counselor, but also teaches various courses within the ILF and WhyIslam departments. He conducts various seminars and programs throughout the state and at other ICNA units throughout the US.
