Welcome to Fawakih Institute: Chicago Chapter

Fawakih is a non-profit 501(c)(3) that offers weekly Quranic Arabic courses in the Greater Chicago Area. 

Announcement: New class at Islamic Center of Oakbrook Terrace


Alhamdulillah, Fawakih is proud to partner with Islamic Center of Oakbrook Terrace (ICOBT) to offer Quranic Arabic language classes. These class will take place on Sundays from 11am-2pm at ICOBT. Class is for adults (and really driven teenagers, ages 15+!). With a small commitment, you can begin a journey to loving the Quran and drawing closer to Allah. Classes start September 24th!



During the fall semester, students will complete Fawakih Level 1A. Students will continue to Fawakih Level 1B in the spring semester. At the end of Level 1, majority of students are able to understand approximately 10% of any Quranic ayah that they read and have been exposed to 240 of the most frequent vocabulary words of the Quran.

Fawakih offers a six-level curriculum, and the goal is to offer all six levels over the next few years at the McLean Islamic Center location. A new level will be added every two semesters at ICOBT, in sha Allah. All semesters are 13 weeks long. For more information on the details of the curriculum, click HERE.

The pre-requisites for this course are that students can read and write Arabic words (even if slowly).
