Taalib Ilm Apprenticeship

At Arabic Courses, we are an established Arabic and Islamic Studies institute with extremely high standards. Our vision for this centre is to cater for the needs of the muslims in the community.  Including helping in producing a generation capable of teaching and propagating Islam to our youth, our elders, to the believers and the non-believers.
Our Apprenticeship scheme is built around the idea that the best way to learn Arabic, Islam. To be able to propagate it and teach it, is to practically do it.  To be taught how to be a teacher rather than just knowing the theory. In order to know how to run an islamic institute rather than relying on guesswork and assumptions. For the purpose of knowing how to work with the community, knowing its needs and requirements by actually doing it. We will achieve this by providing daily education to our apprentices’, teaching Qur’aan, Tajweed, Hifth of Qur’aan, Arabic, Fiqh, Aqeedah, and more. While giving them the opportunity to solidify that knowledge by teaching and educating the people on what they have learnt.


Each Ones Potential

Each apprentice will have the opportunity learn either some or all the skills necessary about management of an Islamic Centre. From accounting, database design and administration, answering calls, organising meetings, taking down notes, advertising, photography and cinematography, and more. They will have the option to gain knowledge on managing an islamic institute and based upon performance and ability. Furthermore they may be given the opportunity to work for our Islamic institute as a full time employee.

Ideal Candidate

This role would be someone who believes they need to learn and is willing to do what it takes to gain that knowledge.  Most importantly, someone with excellent punctuality and work ethic. Someone who seeks a long term vocation in the field of Islamic teaching and propagation.

Whoever treads the path seeking knowledge, Allaah will make easy for him the path to Paradise.Muhammad صلى الله عليه و سلم
