The project comprises of the merging between the two, the ISLAMIC and the SECULAR education, giving this school the brand DARUL ULOOM HARRISBURG!
Our short term goal is to produce qualified Huffaaz while also providing them a secular education. We understand that this is a very ambitious goal but to bring it into reach, we have allowed for an extra time. Our long-term goal is to produce scholars and Imams.
We have also made provisions for those parents who are not interested in the Hifz program but are concerned for providing an Islamic environment for their children. They are encouraged to join the PA Cyber School along with the evening school.
Strategy to achieve the objective
Memorization of Quran
Reading Quran with Tajweed
The Hifz ul-Quran and Islamic education program and the cyber academy will be operated by qualified staff. Only a Hafiz who is exemplary in his or her compliance to sharia will be given this great responsibility of teaching the Quran
The admission criteria for the Hifz and the cyber academy program are that the child must be in grade three or above and must be able to read from the text of the Quran. If parents would like to enroll their child only in the cyber academy program then this will only be allowed with the co-requisite of enrollment in the evening school.
As you know, Allah has blessed our community with a big campus along with our Masjid. The campus includes a big gym, numerous classrooms, ample parking space and much more. To top it off, it is also conveniently located close to downtown. So let us take advantage of it and thank Allah for using it and not abandoning it.
ISGH is one of the oldest established Masjids in Central PA with a long tradition of being an important Masjid in the Central Pennsylvania area. It is located just outside Downtown Harrisburg in Steelton township.
