Who are we

In 1993, the housing development corporation of Taman Desa Rahmat started out an Al-Quran class at the housing area’s mosque; Masjid Al Khairiah as part of their contribution to the community. This class expands to a Tahfiz Al-Quran school for children with the help of Ustaz Hilmy al-hafiz in 1994. The students who are admitted comprises of orphans [boys] from all over Kelantan.

In 1996, the Tahfiz Al-Quran centre officially becomes PEKAYATIM, which is a part of PEYATIM – Pertubuhan Kebajikan Anak Yatim Malaysia [Malaysian Orphans’ Welfare Organisation] (Reg. No: 1193/96 Kel). PEKAYATIM is now a full-fledged orphanage for boys, which provides education in the form of Tahfiz al-Quran, care for the orphans, and help prepare them for the future by helping them secure places in Islamic courses within local higher institutions.

However, currently the Tahfiz centre can only accommodate up to 30 orphans, due to lack of resources and financial means as it relies on public funding. Thus they are also currently unable to accept girls. Stringent interviews are conducted to ensure the orphans accepted are serious about studying Tahfiz al-Quran and make it their chosen stream in Universities.

PEKAYATIM only admits orphan boys aged 10 to 22, and they will spend the next couple of years studying the al-Quran and prepare for the exams that will enable them to further their education. There have been 12 graduates of the school thus far.
