Houston Qur'an Academy

The Houston Qur'an Academy is a full-time Qur'an memorization program which also offers tutoring in academic subjects.  This allows parents to have their children become Hafiz al-Qur'an while at the same time getting tutored in academic subjects such as math, science, and English.  Dr. Hamed Ghazali is the director of the school.

Here are the hadeeths that guide our path, our vision, mission, and goals:

The Prophet, peace be upon him, said: "The best of you is the one who learns the Quran and teaches it." (Agreed upon)
The Prophet, peace be upon him, said: "There is no envy except in two: a man Allah blessed with the Quran, he uses it to pray with it day and night, and a man Allah blessed with money, he spends it day and night." (Agreed upon)


To instill the Quran in the hearts of our children in such a way that makes it act as the engine that drives all the aspects of their lives.


HQA coaches its students and inspires them to memorize, understand, and practice the Holy Quran while striving for the highest academic achievement.


1. Our students will memorize the Holy Quran at a pace that suits the learner inshaa Allah.
2. Our students will understand what they memorize inshaa Allah.
3. Our students will be trained to practice what they memorize inshaa Allah.
4. Our students will excel in academic areas such as math, science, English, social studies, PE, and art inshaa Allah.
5. Our students will serve as contributing citizens and community builders inshaa Allah.
