My second home to learn the Quran language ...

Al Faruq Arabic School

“Allah raises ranks those of you who have internalized Faith and those who have been given knowledge (…)” Sure 58 verse 11.

Arabic lessons:

One of the numerous educational opportunities for children and young people at the Al Faruq School is Arabic lessons, which currently covers all age groups from 5 to 25 years. In age- and level-appropriate groups, more than 250 international mixed students are taught by more than 15 volunteer teachers in the classrooms of the Alfaruq Arabic school on the weekend days (Saturday and Sunday) from 9:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Each of these classrooms was given the name of one of the Companions and Followers and that was in 2016, As a Muslim Model to which the students orient themselves and to whose knowledge and eagerness they look up with pride, among other things the names of the four mistresses of Paradise were chosen and those of the four righteous leaders after the Prophet (peace be upon him), may Allah be pleased with them.

The selected teaching program includes reading books and workbooks that build on each other, through which the students learn to read and write the Arabic language easily and effectively, using proven methods such as reading exciting texts and repeating and practicing the Learned to consolidate the knowledge acquired. At the end of each school year, the students are also prepared for the upcoming exams, which are essential and passing them is a condition for advancing to a higher-class level.

We always strive to train our teachers and improve our methods and procedures in order to give the children the best possible basis to learn the Arabic language effectively and with joy.

Individual support is important to every teacher and so the teachers are constantly in contact with the parents of the pupils in order to convey their learning successes and to find solutions to problems together.

Religious instruction:

In order to educate the students of the Al Faruq School not only in Arabic, but also religiously and historically, once a month, instead of Arabic lessons, joint religious lessons take place in the large mosque room.

Religious instruction are adapted to all age groups, so young and old can learn new things about their religion or refresh old knowledge every month. During these times, the Lecturer tells stories from the life of the prophet or his companions, other prophets from the Koran and their instructive messages are conveyed and everyday ways of life, rules and duties of Islam are explained. For example, the children learn the correct prayer and all that what goes with it in terms of purity rituals and are also educated on a case-by-case basis, i.e. they experience the origin of the Muslim holidays and the meaning that Allah wanted to convey to us. The content of religious education is queried in the exams at the end of school, so the grade in religious knowledge counts for passing the grade and is decisive for advancement to the next class. Through the joint lessons, the children and young people have a lot of fun learning the most important aspects of their religion and are motivated to ask questions and to write up on certain topics themselves and to give lectures towards the end of the year. With these lessons, the mosque does both preventive and educational work at the same time, because the children and young people should get to know true Islam from the beginning and know what their religion really dictates to them, in order to follow the true path of compassionate, moderate Islam.

Lesson times:
