The Islamic Learning Institute, Inc. (ILI) has a strong focus on teaching Qur'aanic Arabic and motivating students to love reading Al-Qur'aan.  This two-day Intensive is a part of our "2024 Year of The Qur'aan Tour."  It is meant to inspire and encourage participants to commit to learning Qur'aanic Arabic and improving their relationship with Allah through the Qur'aan.  This family friendly event is open to all skill levels.

Day 1 will set the tone providing insights from the Qur'aan conditioning the heart to receive its message.  Day 2 will provide two concurrent sessions for beginners and advanced readers of Qur'aan.  The beginner's session will include a unique and memorable way to learn the alphabet and the basic skills for reading Arabic. The advanced session will include some of the basic tajweed rules for reading Arabic with proficiency. Both sessions aim to leave participants knowing, "You can learn Qur'aanic Arabic!"
