Tamhiid (Hingad)

Abubakar Dugsi follows a unique hingad curriculum developed by Abubakar Dugsi teachers. The hingad curriculum consists of five levels in which students are taught different lessons of the hingad in each level. Students are assessed in each trimesters (4 months each) to determine knowledge gained in that trimester. Students who pass their reading and writing (yeeris) test, will move to the next level.


  • In level 1, students learn the letters of the Arabic language. Students also learn the short and long vowels of all the letters.
  • In level 2, students learn the four different types of sukun.
  • In level 3, students learn shaddah, the forms of AL and madd.
  • In level 4, students learn reading the Quran with tajweed from kitab. In this level, students are exposed to read the Quran from Kitab even from places they did not reach yet. All students in this level will be required to bring the tajweed kitab to class.

Parents who would like to enroll their students to Abubakar Dugsi must fill an application form and submit at the office. Applications are processed on a first come first serve basis. Once your application reaches the top and there is an available seat the dugsi will call the parents to schedule an admission test.

All new students will need to be tested and their level of knowledge in Quran and Higaad evaluated. The result of this assessment will determine what level the student will be placed at the dugsi .Waiting list will be maintained according to who applied first. Students can re apply once they withdraw. Students who would like to re-apply must pay any outstanding fees before they submit their application. The office will not accept an application that has arrears to pay.

As for enrolling into the Tahfiid Department, you must fulfill 3 requirements to fully be tahfiid student. It goes as follows:

  1. The student enrolling must be a current student from our Tacliim or Tamhid programs
  2. The student must get a recommendation from his/her teacher saying her/she is eligible to be a Tahfiid program./li>
  3. Once the student fulfils the previous 2 requirements, the student will then be given a chance to enroll in a tahfiid class under supervision by the teachers for 2 months as a Probation period. Once the two months are over, the teacher and the admin will both review/evaluate the students report, deciding if the student can be part of the tahfiid class as an official tahfiid student.
