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 dignity/strength/power and we believe that our center strives to develop strong and skilled reciters of the Qur’aan, and that dignity and nobility comes from loving and living the teaching of 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 Noble Qur’aan for women, youth, and children according to the recitation of Hafs from ‘Asim and with Sanad.
