It has greatly increased my knowledge of the Qur'an, and has triggered my desire to learn more about the Qur'an. The course has also encouraged me to think critically when studying the Qur'an.
– Bro Nuur Sufi –
The FIQS course helped me gain a better understanding the Qur'an as a whole - the etiquette in handling and reading the Qur'an, the basic recitation rules when reading the Qur'an and the application of it as well as the meaning behind certain surahs. It definitely increased my love for the Qur'an and makes me more 'present' when I'm reciting the Qur'an because I am now more aware of the rulings and I find the need to correct myself or clarify my doubts when I am unsure.
– Sis Nur Fatin Amir –
As a new convert/revert, FIQS Course has benefited me so much. It enhanced my understanding in tafsir, taught me the etiquettes of how a Muslims should behave and learned the proper way of reading with Tajweed. I am so grateful for Allah (swt) has given me the opportunity to enrolled in (FIQS) Course as it really guided me to embark my journey as a new Muslim. Looking forward for enroll again in future courses In Sha Allah.
– Sis Ainun Leslie Selarta –
The topics covered under FIQS are important and interesting. And it's the 1st that I have encountered locally which is comprehensive and in English. The instructors are well-qualified and excellent in knowledge. I appreciate that the course has compulsory assignments and exams which reinforce the learning, and thereby underscores the importance of this 'ilm. Thus, this course is really for serious adult learners who are willing to commit time and effort.
– Bro Zainal Muttakin –
FIQS caters not only to those who are starting to learn or relearn the religion, but also those who are already exposed to various circles of knowledge. In a time of vast knowledge which is very accessible, FIQS has given me the space to relearn fundamental aspects of the Quran in order to learn more and value add my existing knowledge.
– Bro Muhammad Adil Bin Muhammad Kamil –
FIQS is a well-structured and comprehensive course to cover the fundamentals of 3 very important aspects - Adab, Quran and Understanding. This course accompanied by additional time spent on assignments and self-help tips and tricks shared by the asatizahs have helped me to develop an interest in learning more. I feel this course would benefit any soul who attends with an open heart and a willing mind in search for knowledge, in shaa allah.
– Bro Muhammad Firdaus M.S –
I find the subjects offered relevant and comprehensive. The course conducted in English is an advantage. It has enlightened me on the various rules of Tajweed and refined my Qur'an recitation. The Sciences of the Qur'an and the Tafseer are an eye opener. I will recommend this course. In Syaa Allah.
– Sis Kasmah Akbar –
I learned a lot from this course, I’m able to recognise tajweed rulings and apply it. Alhamdulillah I could now read the Qu'ran with proper tajweed and aware of the dos and don’ts when reading the Qur'an.
– Sis Elvira Delfin@Huma Zaafira –
Equipped with some basic tajwid knowledge, FIQS helped to open many more chapters for me as the course encompasses Quranic Exegesis, Recitation & Quranic Sciences as well. A good course, with relevant notes & excellent teachers, motivates one to learn more about the Holy Quran.
