Furqaan Academy Bolingbrook is a Pre-K – 12th Islamic School with integrated and full-time Hifdh track. Our vision is to raise good Muslim citizens who are strong in faith, well-grounded in the Quranic knowledge, and have a strong foundation in academics.
Furqaan Academy is the manifestation of the founder's, Wajahat Sayeed of Al-Furqaan Foundation, vision to develop students who are grounded in the Quran – a Quranic generation. As an organization devoted to the service of the Quran in the west, the Foundation wants to ensure that the upcoming generations will come closer to the Quran by understanding its language and by proper training of implementing the Quran and Sunnah in their daily lives. The choice of being a Muslim should be a natural choice, due to their understanding of the deen and not merely as a virtue of being born in the faith.
Following the success of the first school in Bolingbrook, IL, Br. Wajahat Sayeed (Founder and President of Al-Furqaan Foundation) launched the Orland Park, IL, and Online branch in 2022.
Furqaan Academy Bolingbrook, with its pioneering curriculum, aims to create and empower generations of students who are confident of their Muslim identity in America and are able to pursue and excel in any field.
To provide a balanced Pre-K to 12th grade education that combines both revealed and acquired knowledge by integrating a Quran centered Islamic education program with a comprehensive State education program.
With our Quran-based curriculum, we study the wonders of God’s creation, build character, and inspire the soul. Upon the successful completion of 12th grade, Insha’Allah students will have completed the following.
Our program integrates Hifdh of Quran (2 hrs/day) with Arabic language, Islamic Studies and standard state curriculum (Pre-K – 7th grade).
Our program integrates an Alim/Scholar preparatory program along with a standard state curriculum (8th – 12th grade).
Our programs focus beyond Quran memorization, it focuses on understanding the Quran and implementing it into our students’ daily lives, therefore Arabic and Islamic Studies are taught daily from Pre-K – 12th grade.
Our program incorporates tarbiya to teach our students proper Islamic adaab (manners) and akhlaq (etiquettes).
Our program is balanced in its emphasis on “DEEN” and “DUNYA” education.
We believe our students will not only master traditional Islamic sciences but will excel in any field of study including medicine, science or technology, Insha’Allah.
We believe in nurturing a sense of community and belonging in our students not only in the Muslim Community but as contributing members of the broader American community through dawah, civic engagement and advocacy.
We believe in a “No Muslim Child Left Behind” policy and strive to make this opportunity affordable for all Muslims.
We believe in providing a safe and socially Islamic environment for your child.
We believe our students will be leaders and scholars and model Muslims to lead this Ummah and our society at large, Insha’Allah.
Teachers focus on memorization of Quran with an emphasis on makharij (pronunciation) and tajweed (rules of recitation) and at a pace custom to each student.
Students will take courses in Quranic Arabic to develop their understanding of the Quran.
Upon completion of the Quran, the student is required to recite the Quran in its entirety in one day ensuring impeccable memorization and retention as a final exam.
Upon completion of the Hifdh program, students are placed in a program where they will be readmitted in their current academic school year within Furqaan Academy.
Students are trained to lead Salah, deliver Friday Khutbahs, lead Taraweeh, deliver motivational speeches, teach Quran to others, and deliver Halaqahs – all of which we hope will inspire a generation of ideal Muslims and Muslimahs, Insha’Allah.
Students are provided with a proper structure with the head of department, two male teachers and two female teachers ensuring that each student receives proper attention.
There are separate classrooms for female and male Hifdh students.
Our administrative team works throughout the year ensuring schedules, classroom procedures, and academic curriculum are all structured to guarantee a smooth and successful academic year.
