As they say, the best age to learn something new is when the human brain is under development and in the process of comprehending and grasping everything and anything new it comes across: Childhood. Kids are in their primetime in order for learning how to read the Quran and understand it. The importance of this spiritual text can only be realized once we get to pronounce, understand and explain the very essence of this literary masterpiece.
Why Quran for Kids is Essential?
Kids are in an age where they’re discovering the world as it were. They formulate their beliefs and hence need proper methodical guidance to ensure they don’t go off the rails. Obviously, the upbringing and the external factors all contribute significantly, but the teachings of Quran can be an umbrella the child gets under and be protected from the wrongs.
Non-Islamic states furthermore do not have compulsory academic classes that would get kids familiarity with their religion, hence it is an urgency that kids be taught the Quran.
As a result, this basic knowledge can become the foundation for further studies in this field, it can enable the kid to grow up and follow the teachings of Quran and Islam in a much better way and also help them spread this knowledge onto other people in their society thus in a way spreading the message of our Holy Book.
Here’s How Learning the Quran Might be Challenging
Learning anything new is a process, always. Nothing happens overnight and learning the Quran, being able to pronounce the Arabic dialect the right way and getting to understand the words of a foreign language can be a little engaging. It undoubtedly may be a slow process and the fear of inaccurate pronunciation might change the words of Allah makes it all the more crucial to learn it the right way.
Another major factor that demoralizes the kids is they cannot comprehend the Arabic. As you may very well know, a lot many students and kids are just reciting with no knowledge whatsoever of what these particular words mean, hence for the first time it may occur as a very discouraging factor.
However, with every problem comes a solution. Here’s how it can be made easier
You need to know the ideal age when the kid is able enough to start learning to read the Quran. Beware, there is no generalized ideal age, instead, you have to yourself decide when your kid is at an age where he/she can concentrate and understand necessary concepts. You will have to see if they have the memory to retain things taught, and accordingly see whether they can understand the sanctity of the text in order for removing any chances of dishonoring the sacred text.
Also, going to a madrassa it’s highly likely that all students receive the same kind of learning pattern hence hindering the process of children particularly different from the whole group. Online Quran teaching lessons enable students to study at an individualized pace, making the process as efficient as possible and avoids getting demoralized.
As we have mentioned earlier, learning is a process. Give it time, let your kid decide the pace. Go about it step by step, even if it takes you longer than you’d expect because once you’re past the initial stages you will be able to learn it on your own. Therefore, don’t jump in with the idea that you’ll be good to go watching some videos and a little practice in a day. Arabic is a relatively complicated language hence let it have the time it fully deserves. Better even, is that you’re trying to learn to understand and be able to recite the word of God, so however long it takes you, know that it counts as a form of worship only He knows about and will surely reward you abundantly.
Pronunciation comes after recognition of the Arabic text. What people usually do is jump straight t learning the phoenix of a word before understanding the letter. For learning proper Tajweed, we have an extensive Qaida which allows you to move smoothly into the recitation part, reducing inaccuracy to almost very little by the time you are completing your course.
Also, to help with proper recitation, there are complete audios of word by word scripture which gives you the option of repeating as many times as you require to finally pronounce it the right way.
You never put fluency before accuracy, especially not when you’re reading the Quran
A general misconception is how fast can the child read or progress in learning to read the Quran. You should not jump straight to reading it faster, until and unless you are able to pronounce every single word perfectly. Over here we teach and emphasize greatly on the accuracy of recitation, hence eliminating most errors that might occur due to the ‘faster’ dilemma.
As you may very well know, the accuracy can be achieved after hearing someone recite it the proper way once the kid has proper knowledge of Tajweed after completing the Qaida. Various recitations of well-known scholars, the finest collection of the lot available here will assist you through every step on the way. Also, studies show that when you get something right in the way you see a professional do it, really boosts your motivation helping you progress at a much better pace, which is primarily our motive here: To making learning Quran for kids as easy and as much productive as possible.
After accuracy, comes your fluency
The key to that is practice. Anything that you want to improve means that you have to practice it with a gradual progression of intensity. We remind you that a gradual increase can only guarantee minimal errors.
We have reciters of different speeds and also you could time the speed yourself giving you the idea of how much you have improved since your last effort. A gradual increase might come over weeks, and by putting in sufficient time and effort you yourself would be amazed by the results.
Please don’t skip the Qaida, it is absolutely vital
Qaida will form the foundation that will guide you through reading the Quran. When and if any conceptual error occurs it is advisable that you must rewind and repeat that section within the Qaida, so that there is no ambiguity and you learn from your mistakes. Referring to the Qaida should not be frowned upon, or seen as a form of failure, instead, it should be seen as a conceptual go-through and nothing else. This will help you get proficient by the time you return to reading the Quran after mending your error.
Why Prefer Online Quran Classes for kids?
Nowadays, things have rapidly transformed and are rarely like they were back in the ‘80s or ‘90s. It has also become very hard to find a qualified and verified tutor that would come by your house.

Homework gets difficult as you progress in your Quran lessons, hence making sure that the kid fully understands a certain concept before jumping on to the next one.
The steps, towards learning Quran for kids are as follows.
You begin with the Qaida. It will guide you to understand and recognize the letters and also help you in pronouncing when these letters are combined to make words. This makes for the basic building blocks on Quranic words.
Then comes tajweed. It is when you recognize the Quranic words and the Arabic that you begin to master the art of reciting it. In order for you to do that we have an extensive section on Tajweed. Tajweed will allow you to move your tongue and mouth with respect to various words and letters, soon you will understand the pattern and be able to recite the Quran without any assistance.
Tajweed is by far the most important fundamental stages of learning to read the Quran and hence maximum emphasis should be laid upon this both by the kid and their parents. Videos alongside audio streaming will guide you on our website but you will have to practice it as much as you can on your own, as well.
To become a hafiz, or to learn Arabic is a very difficult but do-able task
We want to make it clear that if you are trying to memorize the Quran, it will take time, effort and maybe cost you your usual routine. As a preliminary, the student has to be deemed suitable to undertake this huge task and will have to commit him/her-self to it. It is indeed a slow process but nonetheless do-able as long as you adhere to the notion that nothing happens overnight, and that it is a process.
Also, another progression on the difficulty level is, understanding the meaning of Quran. At first, this might seem like a simple task, since you could directly just memorize the translation however that is not the right way to do so. What you do is learn the language – Arabic. Arabic now as you may very well be aware of is a very complicated language hence you will have to learn every single fundamental and once you have completed the whole course, is when you would be able to understand the Quran while reading it simultaneously.
