Amazing post — for anyone who wants to learn Qur’anic Arabic
The Truth about Al Huda Institute, Quranic Arabic & Lectures in English by Ustadha Taimiyyah Zubair.
Sometimes it is important to make it known the value of certain things so that people become aware of it, appreciate it and use it.
Ustadh Nouman’s lectures definitely sparked my interest in Balagha but I must say what changed me was enrolling in a Quraan class run by Al Huda Institute (online) 2-3 years ago. It changed the seasons of my heart by the Mercy of Allah SWT and I think it sowed the seeds of love for the Quraan in my initially feeble and somewhat sick heart. And that was just by attending it for 3-4 months. Alhamdolilah, Allah SWT’s knowledge strengthened me as a Muslimah (emotionally & spiritually) and ever since that day I haven’t looked back and regretted anything in my life. The lectures are available right here. The lectures on ‘Word Break-up’ are very interesting. The whole program is designed by Dr. Farhat Hashmi and are under her supervision. However, it is taught by Ustadha Taiymiyyah Zubair. For more info on courses, feel free to visit this weblink or contact me inshaa’Allah. Many students of knowledge such as Sh. Kamal el Mekki, Sh. Riad Ourzazi, Sh. Saeed Rageah, Sh. Muhammad al Shareef, Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan, Qari Wissam Sherief and so on recommend Al Huda Institute for women! I have heard some of them by my own ears say that LIVE while others in certain recorded lectures of theirs.
Interesting fact for all those Bayyinah fans out there (I’m one too by the way so don’t get me wrong): there’s only one female teacher (acc. to my limited knowledge) who teaches at the Al Bayyinah Institute and she has studied from Al Huda Institute. She teaches root words and basic Arabic linguistics. So there. If you don’t get a chance to go to that Dream Program, you have tons of other opportunities. Seek relief & comfort in that if you’re truly seeking Allah SWT’s Pleasure! :) You don’t gain knowledge only by attending Islamic University of Madinah, Umm Al Qurra, Al Huda Institute, Fajr Institute or Bayyinah. There are many other opportunities available inshaa’Allah so never ever give up your goals!
That was just a short ‘press conference’ for 2 sisters who told me right about the same day that they wish to attend the Bayyinah Dream Program but are facing certain challenges. Interestingly, they’re continents apart but they have similar issues. This is also for those who have doubts regarding Al Huda Institute. There seems to be propaganda everywhere about several Institutes nowadays. We must take from the right sources and while we do that, we must keep in mind that no Institute, program, teacher is perfect. We must take the good and leave the bad!
May Allah SWT make it easy for us our goals and increase us in beneficial knowledge.Ameen!

truly said sister,even I am currently doing the Al huda taleem ul quran course online from the comfort of my home in dubai,I think it is an amazing opportunity and blessing from Allah swt to enable us women to study such a well organised and amazing course from the safety and comfort of our own homes.
May Allah swt reward Dr farhat hashmi and her family for their continous endeavours to take the understanding of the quran to every one ameen
do try it all of you atleast the easy courses to begin with, it will change your lives for ever in sha Allah.

Very nice post sister. Dr farhat hashmi was the first woman I listened to when I started taking Qur’an seriously. She has an amazing way of explaining it linking it to our everyday life experiences. I’m a big fan of ustad Nouman Ali Khan as well and his approach is more attracted to my children, as he speaks their language and he also connects with them through their experiences. Bottom line is, both these teachers are doing an awesome job. Both have lectures on YouTube and yes, we can find free links to understand word to word Qur’an by dr farhat hashmi but we have to pay to get that knowledge from brother nouman ali khan. May Allah reward them for their intentions and efforts and give us the strength to understand and follow our Qur’an. Aameen.
