Tahsin and Tahfidz Quran (TAQ) Program
In our efforts to connect FBS students with their faith, it is paramount to engender within them an understanding of the Qur’an that allows them to connect with it and embody its teachings. Furthermore, any healthy Muslim community has at its core an element that has memorized the Qur’an. We are proud to announce the launch of TAQ (Qur’an memorization) program. The program will help the students of FBS to memorize portions of the Qur’an, or the entirety of it, through a curriculum that is customized to their individual ability. We believe that learning the Quran is a part of living and exercising the religion on a daily basis. The balance between religion and academics marks the different approach FBS applies compared to other schools.
