Qortoba is an excellent school with energetic and fun teachers! My teacher is awesome, she makes the class fun.
I think QIAS is an excellent institute to study Arabic within an Islaamic curriculum. I highly recommend this program
Maria Hafiz, USA

The learning at Qortoba is very good, I feel comfortable in all areas of my study, the teachers are kind, caring and responsible.
Nur Masitah, Malaysia
QIAS is a school I would highly recommend. You are pushed to your maximum capacity in the best sense of the word. I love Qortoba!
I’ve only had one lesson so far so hard to say. I liked my teacher for trial lesson, and I think you are accessible on skype which is good.
Mohamed Yaseen, -
My teacher is extremely knowledgeable, I have learned so much from her and wish I could take her back to America with me. She is one of a kind.
My girls (Fatima, Mariama & Ruqayyah) are very happy with the lessons they receive from ustadha Shaimaa. I would definitely recommend her. Jzk khair
I think because Qortoba is a smaller institute than others, students are able to get better teaching. This should benefit the students' study of Arabic.
Altaf Ismail, Britain
Waleykumassalam warahmatAllahi wabarakatu Alhamduiallah so far everything has been satisfactory. Teaching from both teachers is very good Alhamduiallah
Qortoba Alexandria is a good place to study. My experience overall thus far (1.5 months) has been good. The city and people are welcoming and warm, Alhamdulillah.
I wanted to inform you Ustadh Hassan Qassim is an excellent Qur'an teacher. He is very puntual, attentive and focused in lessons. Also caring and understanding teacher.
Nayeb Zaky Zaman, UK
Qortoba is recommendable for any student interested in studying Arabic. It is a very good institute that provides a modern and interesting way of studying the Arabic language
QIAS picked me up from the airport and arranged a flat for me. The staff and teachers were always helpful and friendly. The lessons were great. I learned a lot & hope to come back in the future.
QIAS is a very professional institute for Arabic. One months study at Qortoba gave me the confidence to communicate in Arabic alhamdulilLaah, the teachers and the curriculum in QIAS are the best.
The teachers were very kind, friendly and punctual with charming personalities. They are all very caring about me and my friends. I recommend studying at Qortoba for anyone who wants to learn Arabic.
I was very pleased to have spent time at QIAS. The administration and management were very easy to deal with. The management coupled with an excellent teaching staff makes QIAS a very good place to Learn.
Abdelhameed Khafaga, USA/Egypt
QIAS is a very nice school. The staff and the teachers have been very helpful and supportive. They are very knowledgeable. I have learned a lot after just one month and I look forward to my class every day.
I only have positive things to say, it's excellent maashaallaah. I am really enjoying my lessons with my teacher and she is an excellent teacher. I haven't had any problems with the institute or administration.
Asiya Patel, -
Qortoba has been a wonderful and challenging learning experience for me so far. My teacher is professional and passionate about fulfilling my needs and my progress. I am looking forward to seeing what more I can achieve.
Assalamu alaykum I really enjoy my classes with usthada Osama and look forward to them. She teaches well and i do feel that am learning. The only thing I don’t like is sometimes problems with skype and connections."
As a non-Muslim American (Christian) I have to recommend Qortoba whole-heartedly for anyone who would like a complete linguistic and cultural experience. You will learn classical Arabic very well and you will learn about Islaam.
Theron Tingstad, America
Qortoba's method of teaching was excellent. I have learned to speak very basically in a short period of time. My writing has dramatically improved. I enjoyed the experience and In shaa Allaah, I'm sure it will benefit a great deal.
In my opinion Qortoba is doing well MashaAllaah. I studied at another school in Egypt but it was not like Qortoba. I feel that in one level, I have really achieved a lot. I pray that Allaah makes it easy for all the believers. Amiyn.
ABibi B. Rassia Hussain, Guyana/America
My first month at QIAS was a challenge, I has to speak Arabic in order to express my views, so I had to try my best to speak fusha. Its a place where one has to pull their socks up to meet the challenge. My teachers were so patient with me and encouraging. I felt at home away from home
Abu Sharjeel, South Afric
I loved my teacher because she made sure to hit all goals we set at the start of the course. She is very animated with a good character and easy to understand. She listened to my needs and helped push me to cover the coursework with full comprehension. I was never bored or felt dissatisfied.
I can not say enough good things about our teacher. She keeps the class fun and interesting pushing us to do well and use the Arabic words we’ve learned on a daily basis. With Qortoba you will learn Arabic at a fast pace and your understanding will be constantly assured before moving forward.
Qortoba is the best place if you want to improve in the Arabic language. They have good and knowledgeable teachers. In addition to learning Arabic you can learn Qur’aan and Islaamic studies. Its a good way to increase your attachment to Islaam in your life. I want to recommend Qortoba to others.
I am very pleased with the professional quality of the teaching and management from QIAS. After starting with no Arabic 2 months ago, I am now speaking only Arabic in class and in the city. QIAS has an inviting and comfortable atmosphere. I highly recommend the program to young professionals like myself.
Alhamdulillah I am really happy with everything so far. The teacher is very punctual, very friendly, and very understanding. Her knowledge is very impressive too. The admin is also very helpful and professional. Overal,l I can't fault anything. May Allah increase you all in goodness. Jazakumullahu khaeyra.

Wa aleykum assalaamu sister Alhamdulillah all is good coordinator is very good always available if any problems. My teacher is excellent, always on time. The institute is providing an excellent service for students who can't travel abroad ,but want to learn Arabic May Allah reward you all in this world and the next
Muhamed Ali, -
Although my time at Qortoba was very short, I found the institute extremely organised, welcoming, helpful and most importantly their teaching at the highest standard. I feel my time here has been very productive and I would recommend everyone who has the opportunity to to spend as much time as possible studying at Qortoba.
Humaiyunrs Qureshi, UK
I started at QIAS knowing Arabic well enough to speak Egyptian slang but I had very little knowledge of classical Arabic (fusha). After a short while, I was able to replace a lot of the dialect with classical Arabic, and my vocabulary improved. The students and teachers converse in classical Arabic and the environment is great for learning.
I seriously believe Qortoba is the best place to learn Arabic. I started my studies at another school, one that is extremely popular and expensive and I regret not starting at Qortoba. The set of books at Qortoba are very good and Islaamically based. The school has good teachers, anyone serious about learning Arabic should look at Qortoba as their first option.
Ahmed Billoo, America
I studied at Qortoba 3 years ago and have returned to continue my studies and I really benefited in my Arabic studies and Islamic studies. The Islamic curriculum helps us to understand meanings of words in daily use and also to give us good understanding of the Qur'aan, Hadiyth, and Islaamic history. Private tutoring has helped me to progress faster and has helped me to a level that I can teach Arabic.
Umm Hidaayah, Pakistan/America
I have been studying Arabic with Qortoba Institute for a number of years. After seeing my progress, I enrolled my children too. The teachers are native Arabs and have a good level of experience in teaching. I am very happy with the quality of teaching at Qortoba, they really focus on making students excel in the Arabic language. I would definitely recommend Qortoba for learning the Arabic language.
Qortoba's three-week winter program in Alexandria was the perfect mixture of work and pleasure. The small class size and entertaining teacher made learning easy, and the location in a neighborhood untouched by the sort of parasites who prey on tourists made practicing Arabic and learning about the culture happen naturally. It was a good use of my time and money, and a great way to get away from the snow.
Louis Ruppert, America
Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh, I am sending our opinion regarding Ustad Wael who currently teaches my 3 sons Muhammad, Yunus and Yusuf. My children have been studying Quran with Ustad Wael for over 3 years and he is the main reason we are still doing classes with Qortoba. The man is very genuine and very skilled in what he does. He is very caring towards our children who love having classes with him. Thank you,
My first month at Qortoba was an awesome immersion into the Arabic language. From the first day, classes were conducted completely in Arabic, and though I expected it to be overwhelming at first, I found myself learning rapidly and getting more and more comfortable in the language. The school’s location in Alexandria provided phenomenal opportunities for cultural immersion and I would highly recommend it to anybody looking to study Arabic!
Khadijah Hartoush, USA
A huge part of my time in Egypt was spent studying at the Qortoba Institute when I came to Alexandria with my husband in 2006. Not only was I impressed by the teaching methodology, but also by the Islaamic atmosphere at the Institute itself. It is such a peaceful environment and all the people teaching and working here embody the Sunnah in their words and actions. It has been an amazingly unique experience and I would recommend QIAS to everyone.
Saffiyyyan Qurershi Khan, Holland
It's good and organized. Customer service is very good. We are kept in touch regularly. Easy to manage with people. I have had experience with two teachers. Teacher Azza was very good. Firm and focused. Teacher Zainab was very good too. Her style was more relaxed though. And that is ok. Everybody has a different personality. So far I am very happy with the Institute. Jazak Allah khair. I will get in touch with you when I can start my classes again.

What I like about the studies at Qortoba is the complete freedom you have to study what you want – after completing the beginner levels. After finishing the first Kitabul Asasee book I decided I didn't want to complete that program and jumped to the Ibn Saud course and because within the Ibn Saud program there are more than a dozen books you can choose to study from, like Hadiyth, Qur'aan, and even Fiqh. I'm able to study Arabic in the context that I prefer.
Sana Ali, America
I was always interested in studying Arabic. Allaah blessed me with the opportunity to study at Qortoba. The method of teaching and the books used was very good. Allowing the student to choose the books that they prefer to study is also very great. We have just completed a level and I have learned a lot more than I expected to learn in one month. I really enjoy studying Arabic and having a good teacher makes it even better. Thank you Qortoba keep up the good work.
I came to Qortoba Institute with no background in Arabic. I could not write or read the language, nor did I have any prior understanding of anything related to it. after 3 weeks, I am very comfortable with the alphabet, I know how to ask basic questions, my writing isn't great but I can write clearly enough to make myself understood, and I've learnt a lot of words. If you want a really intense (hard work for sure) but beneficial experience, I would highly recommend QIAS
Geertjan Wielenga, Holland
During my time at QIAS I devoted myself to studying the Holy Quran, Arabic Grammar, Morphology, Rhetoric and various other Islamic subjects including Islamic Jurisprudence. Furthermore, my teacher played an immense role in conveying detailed subjects in a digestible manner which bridged the gap between myself and classical books. In conclusion, QIAS is a fantastic centre for learning and more importantly very flexible as it caters for individual requirements productively.
Junaid Dar, United Kingdom
Asalamualaykum warahmtullhi wabarkatu I have been studying Arabic with Ustaadah Azza under the qortoba institute for a number of years and have found it a very beneficial platform. It has allowed me to escalate my confidence and has given me the opportunity to understand this beautiful language in more depth. I am satisfied by the quality of teaching and motivation provided by the teachers. Therefore I would strongly recommend this institute to fellow students who are looking to study Arabic in the future JazakAllahu Khair
Aaminah H, UK
QIAS is one of the best institutions in Egypt for those who really want to understand Islaamic teachings through the Qur'aanic language itself. Before QIAS, I could not even understand, read or speak the Arabic language, after studying approximately four months at QIAS, everything changed. I'm able to have conversations and understand quite a lot of what I'm reading, especially in the Holy Qur'aan and Hadiyth. The combination of an excellent Arabic curriculum from Ibn Saud University and professional lectures attached my heart to Qortoba. JazakumAllaahu khaiyr
Aimar bin Hashem, Malaysia
Honestly speaking about my daughter and I enjoy your classes. You are a great teacher Mashallah. You are professional, dedicated and put a lot of effort into the classes. I am amazed at how much my daughter has learnt already in this short time Alhamdulillah. I have also learnt a lot myself. JazakAllah Khair for all your hard work. The admin team provides a great service. They deal with my issue quickly. The institute is also great and I always recommended it to many friends and family. May Allah reward the teachers and the entire team of Qortoba abundantly. Ameen
For the past five years I have attempted to study at various places, including the US, Saudi Arabia and Egypt . The program at Qortoba has proven to be the most organized, gradual, and productive. I'm extremely satisfied with what I have studied so far. I highly recommend brothers/sisters to take a minimum of 6 months break from the rat race of daily life to come and jump start their knowledge about the language. Many people have tons of questions about the conditions of living, cost, etc. However it’s not very difficult to get adjusted here. Put your trust in Allaah.
Ismail Shiah, America
Salaam Qortoba, My daughter has been learning to read Quran with Sama since last year. She has 2 classes a week. Sama is a lovely teacher with whom my daughter has built a lovely relationship. Sama is kind and teaches in the style and pace my daughter needs. I suggested a change to the way in which the class was structured and Sama took this on board and changed this immediately. The qortoba support has been good too. From requesting and making payment to letting us know if class is cancelled. There's always adequate notice. We are very pleased with our sessions Alhamdulilah May Allah reward your efforts InshAllah

Sister Asiah , UK
first and foremost I thank Allah for bestowing His favor on us and for everything , Secondly I also thank and commend Qurtoba institutes for the work they’re doing and it’s my prayer that Allah will bless the institute and the entire team. Thirdly,I will not be able to thank fully my teacher Ustadh Hassan Qassim for excellent teaching skills and for being an extraordinary teacher. Generally,One of the uniqueness of teaching Quran is attention and patience which Ustadh Hassan has it all .May Allah reward him both in this world and Akhira .. Most important things in teaching Quran is delivering approache ,Ustadh Hassan has the knowledge and the same time excellent delivering skills.
Shariff jeylani, UK
I have been asked to give feedback about ustaz Hassan Qasim. He is a fantastic teacher and very encouraging and positive. I honour him as he is a true lover of the Quran and Islam. He is my favourite teacher from past to present. Before him i had Ahmad Basala. I had trouble communicating with him as he had limited english. But ustaz Hassan speaks very good english. Ustaz Hassan is a great shaykh and i want to personally come to egypt to kiss his hand and receive my ijaza for being a hafiz in the future. I have nothing but words of praise for ustaz Hassan. May Allah give him the highest rank on the day of judgement and may he be admitted to jannatul firdaws. Amin. And may Allah reward all our efforts.
Ersan Akyuz, UK
wa alaikum as salaam I started using Qortoba when my brother recommended it. At first I used it because it was more convenient than driving 3 days a week there and back for Quran lessons. Now I am very pleased with not only the teaching but also the administration side who deal with any of my queries quickly and in a truly Islamic manner, mashalla. Both of my children have been reciting Quran with Qortoba on and off for about 2 years. I am very pleased with the effect it has had not only on improving their recitation, especially my son's, but also on the Islamic ettiquette that the teachers are passing down. May Allah bless the teachers , staff and all involved in running Al Qortoba, and may He place barakah into your work. Allah knows best
Saima Bhatti, England
Assalamualaikum, Alhumdulillah I really enjoy the classes with ustadha Azza, Maa-shaa'Allah she is very professional, punctual and an amazing teacher Allahuma baarik. She is always very easy to understand and has a lovely friendly way to teach. She uses different things and methods to teach and doesn't have boring lessons. I can have a laugh with her and learn at the same time. May ash reward her immensely. Aameen Administration are great too as they are very quick to reply and answer any enquiries. They clarify misconceptions straight away. I believe what the institute is doing is great and extremely beneficial to so many people! It's amazing how many people are benefiting from this institute. May Allah guide us and keep us guided. Aameen. Jazaakam ullahu khairan Hope that has been helpful insha'Allah.
