What is Ma’had Afaq Singapore?

Afaq Singapore is the first branch of The Afaq Online Institute for the Sciences of Al-Quran and Al-Hadith based in Damascus, Syria.

The Afaq Online Institute for the Sciences of Al-Quran and Al-Hadith is an institution which is fully recognized and accredited by the Ministry of Endowments in Syria. It places importance in the studies of the Holy Quran and its Sciences as well as the Hadith and its Sciences.

Afaq Singapore will closely follow the curriculum and methodology set by The Afaq Online Institute. However, we will adapt the curriculum in such a way that it will be relevant to the Singapore context. Programs are taught in English or Malay.

Our Mission

  • To provide quality in-depth studies of the Islamic Sciences free from liberalism and extremism as needed by the Muslim community in Singapore.
  • To shape Muslims who carry the Islamic identity and are actively involved in the building of the community.
  • To make traditional Islamic Knowledge accessible to everyone.
  • To nurture a generation of Muslims who are able to internalize and practice the knowledge they have.

The Ustazaat* of Afaq Singapore

Afaq Singapore’s teaching personnel are mostly graduates from Islamic Institutions from Syria, Egypt, Yemen and Jordan.

But most importantly, all of them are dedicated and passionate in spreading knowledge that brings one closer to Allah and His Beloved Messenger, our Prophet Muhammad .

At Afaq Singapore, we believe that seeking knowledge is not about accumulating information, but about the transformation of the self by the Light of His Beloved .

*Ustazah means female teacher of Islamic Studies. Anisah means Miss. It is a term used by Syrians referring to their female teachers (or ‘Anse’ in Syrian colloquial language).
