Hafsa Qur’an Society
“Recite and rise up, and be increased in reward with every Ayah.”
The mission of the Sayyida Hafsa Quran Society is to inspire and facilitate the recitation and memorization of the entire Holy Quran by Black Muslim women.
Our goal is to create a supportive community of like-minded women who work together in peer-to-peer cohorts and virtual gatherings, implementing a regimented program that guides, motivates, and enables them to complete the recitation and/or memorization of the Quran with proper tajwid within a five years period.
At Hafsa Qur’an Society, we offer the following services to equip female students with the tools to recite the Noble Qur’an in Arabic with fluency, rhythm, and application of basic tajweed rules in the Hafs readying style.
