  • Qa'ida Program
  • Ummati’s Qa’ida Program

    Qaida Program:

    The primary purpose of Qaida is to introduce the children to the Arabic alphabet, their different forms, how they connect to one another, and recognize vowels, their functions, and the sounds they produce.  They will also be briefly introduced to the basic rules of Tajweed.  However, perfecting Makhraj and understanding the rules of Tajweed is an ongoing effort that will carry through to Nazira, where it will be given greater attention.  Therefore, their forward progress will be based on their effectiveness in the primary purpose.

    The Qaida program is divided into 13 levels using the NOORANI QA’IDA

    Level A: Page 1-5

    Level D: Page 16-20

    Level G: Page 31-35

    Level J: Page 46-50

    Level M: Page 61-65
