Start-Up Developing Platform to Help Find Quran Teachers in Brunei

A local start-up is developing a platform that allows people to easily find accredited Quran teachers, based on their location, and the company has set its sights on becoming the world’s largest Quran after-school learning service provider.


Al-Huffaz Management was formed on April 30 earlier this year, and it is an event management company owned by founder Haji Mohammad Loqman Al-Hakim bin Haji Hamdan.

The company won first prize at the Universiti Teknologi Brunei (UTB) Youth Entrepreneurship Competition 2016 last September.

Haji Mohammad Loqman spoke in an interview yesterday and shared with the Weekend Bulletin that the vision and aim of Al-Huffaz Management is to produce a generation that is literate in Quran and literate in Islamic finance.

The company’s formation resulted from the idea of a number of student alumni from Institut Tahfiz Quran Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah to create a company that can market religious services to the public. The idea was to create a platform to help members of the public study the Quran.

As Loqman explained yesterday, he and his fellow alumni noticed that many people in Brunei actively look for Quran teachers to hire and to have them teach at their homes. Through Al-Huffaz Management, users have a platform through which to find such teachers who have accreditation from the Brunei Islamic Religious Council (MUIB).

"Our company acts as a platform for the public to find Quran teachers as well as to help locals to teach Quran knowledge and religion correctly, accredited by the MUIB.”

The company is currently in the process of building its website, through which users will be able to send in requests for the services of Quran teachers. After a customer inputs their request, Al-Huffaz Management can then provide a list of teachers to choose from, based on their location.

Development for this aspect of the business is focused only on a website so far, and while there isn’t a mobile app being developed yet, Haji Mohammad Loqman said the company is open to the idea of setting one up in the future.

He shared that the demand in the country is very high, with many customers reaching out to them for their services over social media.
