Sidi Faraz Sadiq


In 2006 Ustadh Faraz embarked on an extended sabbatical to study Arabic and Islamic Studies in Syria. Whilst in Syria he initially focused on the Arabic language which was followed by a three-year programme in Arabic & Islamic Studies at the Abu Nur Seminary in Damascus. This involved the study of a number of core Islamic sciences such as Islamic Jurisprudence, Prophetic reports, legal theory and Islamic Speculative Theology. As well as this, he gained a license (Ijaza) in Qur’anic recitation. During the course of his studies, he constantly engaged with extra-curricular texts to engage fully with various pedagogical methods, which he has successfully carried forward into teaching.

More recently he successfully completed an M.A. in Islamic Studies with Distinction. Additionally, he has also received a certificate in 'Muslim Chaplaincy' in 2013. He has taught students from Key Stage 1 through to lecturing at Post-16 level.  He has been involved in projects designing Arabic & Islamic studies curricula which will help reform the delivery of these subjects in schools across the country in sha Allah. He has worked as Head of Department in a number of schools in the UK and abroad. He has just returned from working as part of the Senior Leadership Team at an International Islamic school in Malaysia. 

Sidi Faraz is the Head of Ha Meem Quran School.
