All praise is due to Allaah, the Lord of all that exists. May the salutations and peace of Allaah be upon His messenger, Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم), his family and all of his Companions (رضوان الله عليهم). To proceed:
Learning and educating the ummah in the sciences of Qur’aan is a wonderful privilege and a great responsibility. Rather, it is the best position that one can aspire towards as stated by the prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم),
“The best amongst you is the one who learns the Qur’aan and teaches it.” (Bukhaaree)
This hadeeth is an evidence for the virtue of learning the Qur’aan which incorporates learning the proper pronunciation of the words as well as the meanings of the verses. Allaah says,
“(This is) a Book (the Quran) which We have sent down to you, full of blessings that they may ponder over its Verses, and that men of understanding may remember.” (38:29)
It is recorded in Sahih Muslim that the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam) said:
“The Qur’an and its people, those who used to act upon it in the world, will be brought on the Day of Judgement. However, Sooratul-Baqarah and Soorah Aali Imraan will precede them and argue in favour of those who memorised and recited these soorahs (in this life).”
Our online campus is only a tool that will, in-shaaAllaah, aid you in perfecting your recitation thus providing ease in pondering the meanings of the Qur’aan and acting upon it by His Grace and Permission of Allaah. We are honored to spend this semester and every one working towards this goal. May Allaah make all of us from the true people of the Qur’aan and allow us to elevate in levels in this World and the Next, aameen.
Welcome to Ummahaatul Mu’mineen Institue.
Asiyyah Mussallihullah, Head of UMMI
Licensed in Seven Recitations
Licensed in a collection of books and texts of tajweed, arabic, and qiraa’aat
UMMI aims to give students the knowledge, insight, skills, and experience needed to become both proficient in the recitation of the Qur’aan and valuable contributors in the field of tajweed and qiraa’aat . The institute’s Ijaazah or Certification program features dedicated haafidhaat, working closely with faculty to foster the quality of their recitation and expand the breadth of their comprehension via internships and extended dialogues between peers, teachers, and analysts.
The vision of UMMI is to aid students in memorizing the entire Qur’aan accurately with a precise and clear recitation. As Allaah says:
And We have indeed made the Quran easy to understand and remember, then is there any that will remember (or receive admonition)? (Al-Qamar: 17)
Or a little more; and recite the Quran (aloud) in a slow, (pleasant tone and) style. (Al-Muzzammil: 4)
We hope that students who graduate from UMMI will recite the Qur’aan with tajweed as it was revealed and implement its legislation according to the way of the salaf as saalih:
“Because this (Qur’an) was revealed to us by Allah in this form
And exactly like this (with tajweed) it reached us.” (Al-Jazariyyah)
Indeed in all matters the aid of Allaah is sought.
History of UMMI
In October of 2012 a group of eleven girls, ages 5-12, gathered in a spare room at a local residence to read and memorize the Qur’aan. Their previous instructor was male and needed a female teacher to take his place. With little to no plan as to how to proceed, the facilitator asked the students: What do you want to gain from this gathering?
Stirred by the question, the girls discussed their personal aspirations and brainstormed ways to achieve them. In the following days, lists were compiled, ideas formulated, and goals set until a mutual vision was established. Together they designed a classroom model and gradually transformed the spare room into a study area. They named their finished classroom: Qur’aan Explorers Academy Girls Exclusive (QUEAGE). Now Ummahaatul Mu’mineen Institute (UMMI), we still aspire to answer that initial question by firstly and foremostly seeking the aid and assistance of Allaah and then continuously expanding academic potential for students whilst accommodating a broader, international audience. May Allaah put blessings in the efforts of all of our teachers and staff, aameen.
We have proudly collaborated with various salafi academic programs past and present. We are willing and happy to coordinate future events, as well, to create beneficial courses that promote positive growth for the school and our students, beithnillaah.
