About Our Qur'an Program

Our Beautiful Qur'an Journey is an exclusive, groundbreaking "heart and soul" Qur'an program facilitated by internationally acclaimed author and teacher Umm Zakiyyah, along with a carefully selected team of UZ Ambassadors and qualified Qur'an teachers with ijaazah (official certification of prophetic recitation). Our ijaazah-holding teachers are certified in Hafs (via Tajweed and/or Hifdh). 

Our Philosophy and Goal

Here, we believe that your Qur'an journey should be "heart and soul" centered, and should lay the foundation for a lifetime commitment to reciting like the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him), for living an emotionally and spiritually healthy life, and for ultimately raising your rank in Paradise, bi'idhnillaah.

Sponsor Their Beautiful Qur'an Journey

In our sponsorship program, with as little as $27 month, you can earn the blessings of sadaqah jariyah (ongoing charity) for your lifetime and beyond. In this sponsorship level, you contribute toward the monthly tuition of students in financial difficulty who are studying Tajweed, Hifdh, and/or Tadabbur at the "Our Beautiful Qur'an Journey" program.

These students are either currently studying in our program on a full or partial scholarship, or they are awaiting financial assistance before they are admitted.

Once accepted into the program, in addition to our Tajweed, Hifdh, and Tadabbur courses, our Qur'an students have access to an array of UZ courses and eBooks.
