Collaboration Programme IIUM-JAKIM
The Tahfiz Al-Quran Certificate Programme is jointly conducted by the Jabatan Kemajuan Islam Malaysia (JAKIM) and the International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM).
Tahfiz Al-Qur'an Certificate Programme has jointly been conducted by JAKIM and the International Islamic University Malaysia since 2000. The sessions are conducted at Darul Qur'an (previously known as InstiM Pengajian Tahfiz Al-Qur'an, JAKIM) in Kuala Kubu Bharu, Selangor, and later followed by a foundation programme at the IIUM Centre for Foundation Studies.
The first intake in 2000 consisted of seven students from the IIUM Centre for Foundation Studies. In 2001 the intake increased to fourteen students from various religious schools in Klang Valley. These students were among the best performers in the 2000 SPM trial examinations. The intake in 2002 further rose to twenty-six students and this trend is expected to continue in the coming years.
Since the programme was introduced, the number of tahfiz students has increased to 832 students. This number shows overwhelming support from the public. The Centre is sending CELPAD lecturers to Darul Qur'an to teach English language courses and one lecturer to teach FIM subjects.
Today, at the Centre for Foundation Studies, there are 192 students enrolled in the Foundation programme. In order to maintain their "hafazan", the Tahfiz Unit of the Admissions and Records Department has introduced and organized a "Tarsikh Programme" which is conducted two hours per week. 218 students have embarked on their degree programmes at the International Islamic University Malaysia.
- To integrate knowledge. The programme makes an important contribution to the integration of knowledge with other disciplines. This is a necessary step towards producing professionals and intellectuals with high moral standards in line with the needs of the Ummah and nation.
- To provide a platform for nurturing intellectuals who are capable of capturing the glorious treasures of Islamic intellectual heritage.
Based on the Quranic principle of Tawhid, the education process is aimed at molding the younger generation to become pious and God-fearing individuals, who are fully aware of their duties and responsibilities towards the Creator.

The selection board consists of members from both Darul Qur'an, JAKIM and the International Islamic University.

Successful applicants are offered admission to the programme which usually commences in January every year. The programme shall continue until the month of June in the following year.
