Founder and Author of Subulassalam visited Toronto, Canada
July 10, 2011 to July 24, 2011

This was a great day of July 10th 2011, when my respected teacher Prof. Habib Ashraf Farooqi was arriving to Toronto. The flight came on time and after long wait, I saw Sir was walking out from the arrival area as usual very fresh and smiling. I welcomed Sir with my Son and then we walked towards parking. We reached home and enjoyed wonderful lunch, Sir shared some gift with us and then we waited for Maghrib.

That was Sunday so I had a class scheduled at IFT after Salat-ul-Maghrib, I did not cancel that class because I wanted to introduce everyone to Sir. After Maghrib, we gathered in class area and un-expectedly there were more people in that class, after quick introduction, I requested Sir to conduct the class and then everyone realized why I talk about Sir all the time, usually we have only 15 to 20 minutes class, in that class, nobody was showing time to me and they all were really into the class. From that quick and successful introduction we decided to arrange another Subulassalam Salah session at my buildings Party room.

We arranged dinner from Catering King and Pizza and invited so many people on Wednesday July 13 evening for introductory session, around 40 people attended that session and at the end of the session; respected guest from IFT invited Sir Farooqi to conduct short course of Subulassalam at IFT. We also arranged two similar sessions on Sunday July 17, 2011 at ICNA Resources center Scarborough in the morning around 12 noon to 1:30 PM and evening session at ICNA Resource center Thorncliffe Park Drive. Both sessions were very successful and we got some students registered for the 4 days sessions at IFT which was already scheduled in the following week after invitation from IFT.

Arabic In A Month – Islamic Society of Markham
December 09, 2009 to January 03, 2010

After unique and successful experience of Arabic In A Day conference, I was very much interested to launch this type of conference in different areas of GTA. In the meantime, I was approached by a gentleman from ISM committee, they wanted to arrange a short course at ISM, we discussed different options and decided to conduct a one month short course in December 2009. I decided Sunday morning to conduct 4 sessions of 3 hours each. ISM announced the course and in no time I got around 30 registrations for the course.

I also met with all members of ISM Shuraa Committee and answered some of their questions and concerns. Al-hamdulillah, everything was set and when before we started first session, there were already around 90 registrations for that course. ISM management made all the arrangements very well, projector, computer, whiteboard etc. were already setup in the basement area of ISM and we launched the course on December 09, 2009. In first day, there were around 80 people who attended the class.

In those 4 sessions, we decided to cover some advance topic of Arabic Grammar like derived forms of VERB, List of Particles, signs and impact of Particles. During preparation of the class presentation and handout, we also prepared some very nice slides and handouts to summarize Tenses, signs of Verbs, Signs of Particles, and Noun Cheat sheet. In each session, we distributed handouts and class notes. In session we also covered word by word Salah and last 10 Surah of Juz 30. ISM management also arranged refreshment with tea and juices for each session.

In Last session, at the end there was certificate distribution ceremony; certificate of completion was given to 60 people who attended the most sessions. One member of Shura committee was also invited to say few words. I was rewarded with a wonderful book (Gham Na Karen, Don’t be Sad or LA TAHZAN), gift pack, flowers and also a certificate of teaching that course. Many people took pictures of the ceremony and appreciated the efforts a lot. We also got very excellent feedback and nice suggestions in the feedback form.

By the Grace of Allah, that Arabic In A Month Subulasslam Short course was a great success. That was first official course which was held at any Islamic Organization in Toronto by SAC. We are very thankful to ISM Management who facilitated that course in the organization for the benefits of the community.

Al-hamdulillah, that was all due to Mercy of Allah.

Arabic In A Day – Thanksgiving Day 2009 – New and Unique Experience
Monday October 12, 2009 - Thanksgiving Day

From my previous courses and experience of teaching, I realized that people usually don’t want to make commitment for longer course and if you arrange longer course the drop off ratio is very high. Due to this reason, I had been thinking to gather the most important grammar rules in handouts to cover in few hours. That triggered the idea of conducting Arabic In A Day Workshop.

The idea was to conduct one day workshop where people can learn most important and fundamental Quranic Arabic Grammar rules and then apply them to understand word by word translation of Daily Salah. Since I already have many people who were waiting for any upcoming course. I shared the idea with couple of people in the circle and got some encouragement and by the Grace of Allah, the workshop was announced to be held on Thanksgiving Day 2009 at ICNA Resource Center in Thorncliffe Park Drive.

We only announced the course in TPD area with limited no. of seats i.e. 25 and people started registering for the workshop so quickly, we got around 40 registrants before the workshop day. We decided $10.00 fee to cover the printing, lunch and refreshment, SAC contributed happily the shortfall at the end. At the end, around 30 people attended the workshop including some young volunteers. We had a very busy and productive day and the feedback was excellent from the class. Some nice suggestions were also given by students to improve the session.

That experience also gave me a lot of courage to promote Quranic Arabic Learning workshop in different areas of GTA.

Al-hamdulillah, that was all due to Mercy of Allah.

Subulassalam Academy arranged First Tajweed Course
June 2009 - August 2009

I also learnt Tajweed during my studies and appeared in Exam and successfully passed written and oral exam of Tajweed-ul-Quran. When I started teaching Arabic Grammar, I got so many inquiries regarding Quran Reading and Tajweed classes. Hence we decided to arrange a short course in which we can cover basic Tajweed rules and also mention some of the common mistakes and correct them.

We scheduled 12 weekly classes in June – August 2009 and started distributing flyers and making announcements in different groups e.g. TPDMuslims yahoo group as the course would be conducted at ICNA Resource Center Thorncliffe Park Drive. We really got great response for that course and around 20 people were registered from all age group.

We distributed quick handouts to explain grammar rules and covered them in each class and also had everyone recite some of the Quranic Verses. We also used to play recitation of Imam-e-Kaba or any good reciter during the class to give chance to people to make corrections by listening that as well.

In short, that course was a great success and I got so many nice people in that course.

Al-hamdulillah, that was all due to Mercy of Allah.

Most Successful Experience
June 2008 - August 2008

Year 2008 was the most successful year in terms of teaching different courses, the teaching season which was started in 2007 was continued without any break and there was a time when I was teaching two courses. As soon as I completed Online Course, I announced 4 month short course to cover Understand Quran Basic Course and some additional rules gathered by me.

We got around 28 registrations for the course, we arranged Certificates for the previous successful graduates from Understand Quran Academy Canada and distributed in 1st session of that short course. That was very exciting day for everyone and they expressed their feeling while receiving certificate. The new student felt really encouraged and they were very energetic to move on with that short course.

Why I called it the “Most Successful Experience”, because of few unique things, first of all the class was full of enthusiasm and sincere, they were very punctual. We conducted quick quiz sessions in the class also Monthly quizzes to complete at home, at the end we announced best student of the class who were most regular and also completed quiz with flying colors, and we also distributed some gifts. All these interactive things kept the momentum alive till the last session and the drop off ratio was too low.

Al-hamdulillah, that was all due to Mercy of Allah.

Subulassalam Academy conducted course online with
March 2008 to June 2008

In those days, I also used to work with the team of Understand Quran Academy in GTA and hence I got an opportunity to conduct a course online. The team of conducts different level courses of Arabic Grammar and Reading. I was assigned a task to teach Short Course of Understand Quran Academy.

That was my first of teaching any course online, I was excited. We got around 27 registrations for that course; however average 15 to 20 attended all sessions. I learnt a lot from teaching online, the only thing which I felt it is somehow hard to concentrate on teaching as you don’t see people expression if they are following you. However, we completed all the sessions successfully. But, I decided to focus on teaching in person courses in my area instead of teaching online. I found teaching online was difficult and required great energy.

However, I am thankful to Allah, who gave me a chance to teach a course online and students from all over the world attended the sessions. Al-hamdulillah !!

The First Official Batch from Subulassalam Academy Canada
August 2007 to May 2008

I came back and resumed the fresh classes at another old location of ICNA Resource Center in TPD. Then we moved the classes in apartment of 47 Thorncliffe Park Drive. We covered almost complete text book of Understand Quran basic course and then covered some other advance topics.

Around 10 people were very regular in this course and they attended all classes in around 10 months. Then, we decided to start a new batch. We distributed certificates of completion from Understand Quran Academy Canada; to those 10 individuals who completed those classes. You can more about classes after that course in blog above.

Al-hamdulillah, that was all due to Mercy of Allah.
