Female Hifth Institute

The girls’ school was officially opened on the 23 January 2006 at the Habibia Sufi Masjid premises. Initially 50 girls were registered ranging in age from 4 years to 18 years.


The girls’ campus has since relocated to a permanent premises in Schaapkraal. The Female Institute can accommodate a maximum of 120 learners. The Institute was administered by Faiza Lamara-Toefy since inception until 2018.

The school is managed and overseen by the principal Sheikh Suleiman Benjamin who holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Islamic studies and Arabic from the University of Medina, Saudi Arabia. He is currently pursuing his post graduate certificate in education at UNISA. Sheikh has been with the institute since 2003 and is supported by a vice-principal Ml Fatima Thebus who completed her hifth under the guidance of Sh. Muhammad Adams.


Hifth Programme

New learners will commence on a learning model consisting of 4 levels before graduating. This process lasts between 4 to 6 years. Each level has a head of department (HOD) who administers the progress of the individual ensuring a high quality of education is maintained. Refer to Quran Hifth Program.


Learners are taught Modern Standard Arabic, including grammar and Tafheemul Quran (Understanding of the Quran). They are also taught translation of selected verses.

Islamic Studies

Our Islamic studies consist of Arabic, Touheed, Fiqh, Seerah and Adaab. Our objective is to mould the learner to become an informed practicing Muslimah.

Academic Programme

All learners are taught Mathematics and English in accordance with the curriculum of the Western Cape Education Department (WCED).


JEQ’s extra mural activity is compulsory for all hifth learners. Extra-mural codes such as kick-boxing, arts & crafts and netball are offered to learners at our female campus which takes place on Saturdays.
