Imam Zakariya Academy

Welcome to Imam Zakariya Academy

With a combination of memorization of the Holy Qur’an from the outset of a child’s learning career, alim course and the teaching of secular education, Imam Zakariya Academy Primary School established in September 2003, expanded from only 10 children to more than 120 students at Forest Gate Masjid under the instructions of our ustaaz and mentor Shaykhulhadith Hazrat Maulana Yususf Motala saheb (Hafizahullah).  

Allah Ta`ala says in the Holy Qur’an

“We have indeed made the Qur’an easy to memorise, is there any one to memorise it?”

Memorisation of the Holy Qur’an at an early age, before the start of other learning has been the sunnah (tradition) of our scholars of the past. Hifz at a young age not only brings about purity of heart and piety in the child, but also helps immensely to boost memory power and retentive skills. We strongly feel that utilising this tried and tested methodology will increase and enhance the future educational ability of each child. It is this method of teaching from the Golden Age of Islam, which the Academy intends to re-awaken.

The Academy believes that as a result of this accomplishment our students will gain a higher standard of achievement in all areas of their development throughout their life; in their cross- curricular activities and in their future careers.
