All thanks and praise to Allah Almighty for the blessing of Islam and giving us the Glorious Quran. Like no other book, the Quran has survived and remained unchanged for more than 1400 years now Alhamdulillah, and it will remain unchanged until the end of time. We are extremely grateful that we are given glad tidings and good news that Allah Almighty took upon Himself the preservation of the Noble Quran.
With the grace of Allah Almighty and the great efforts of our scholars,
the Noble Quran was handed down from generation to generation until it reached us. Now it is our turn and our obligation to pass it down to the next generation.
The Islamic Center of San Gabriel Valley is working on fulfilling this great mission by offering a program to educate our community.
The Quran Academy has established Quran and Arabic programs for all ages and all levels that are offered six days a week throughout the year.
The Quran classes include laying the foundation, by learning the rules of tajweed; focusing on the pronunciation of each letter of the Arabic Alphabet by studying the Makharij (points of articulation), as well as the characteristics of each letter, for the purpose of reciting the Quran the correct way and not confusing the letters, nor adding an extra vowel or omitting it. The Arabic language is very sophisticated; any slight change to any letter may change the words of Allah Almighty. The Arabic language is essential for all Muslims to understand the Noble Quran and the Sunnah. We are using text books that are highly credible and taught in the USA as well as in Egypt and Saudi Arabia.
We are committed to providing quality academic education.
We pray that Allah سبحانه و تعالى help us and guide us all in our mission and forgive us for any mistakes that we may make.
Oh Allah, honor us to serve this religion and help us be worthy of that honor.
