Izzah Learning Center is a non-profit organization in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, aimed towards developing proficient and excellent reciters of the holy Qur'aan.
The center was founded in May 2013 by students of Sheikha Umm Abdallah Azizah Hafez, whom has ijaza in multiple qiraa’at (types of recitations) of which, one is from Sheikh. Ibrahim Al-Akhdar. They were inspired to open a center that would create a welcoming and comfortable environment for women and children to learn proper tajweed and recitation. Izzah Learning Center is open to women and children.
The word "Izzah" means to be strong/powerful and we believe that our center is dedicated towards creating strong and powerful reciters of the Qur'aan. With our small class sizes, students are able to grasp the knowledge more effectively and are provided with more opportunities to have one on one time with teachers.
We are dedicated to the teaching and memorization of the Holy Qur'aan for women and children according to the recitation and sanad of Hafs from ‘Asim.
