The fees for maktab is $50 per month. If any family is not able to pay the monthly fees the masjid will sponsor those children.
We would encourage every parent to donate monthly towards the educational expenses.
The goals of the Evening Islamic Studies are to provide the children a sound foundation in their Islamic knowledge and practices, while inculcating the love of Allah and the Prophet (Allah bless him and grant him peace)
The ‘tarbiyyah’ تربية (upbringing) of the students is highly emphasized.
From what ages are children taken?
Children aged 6 and up are eligible for admittance. Children 5 may be admitted upon taking an aptitude test.
What if I can’t make it for all 3 days?
We encourage attendance so that there is no shortfall in the work learned. However if a child can only come for certain days we will try our best to accommodate the child
I would like to volunteer
Volunteers are always welcome. From teaching to being an aide, we’re always looking for dedicated and child-friendly teachers.
What is taught exactly?
We have 5 core subjects. Primarily the children are taught to read the Quran with proper pronunciation. Alongside, the supplemental subjects are detailed as follows:
Fiqh: The child is taught the basics of Islam. How to pray, make wudu, fast etc. The goal is enable each child to have a firm grasp of the basic practices as they pertain to the ritual worship
Seerah: Here the student is taught the life history of the Prophet (Allah bless him and grant him peace) as well a brief history of some of the earlier Prophets (All bless them and grant them peace)

Akhlaaq: Students are taught the manners of Islam from a theoretical as well as a practical standpoint. For example how to talk, respect parents, eat, sleep, play, interact with Muslims as well as non etc
Aqaa’id: Here the children are taught beliefs that make a Muslim a Muslim, including the beliefs held about Allah, His Angels, His Books, His Messengers etc from the standpoint of the ‘Ahl us Sunnah wal Jama’ah
