10 Easy Tips To Help Your Kids Learn Quran In 2024

 

Reading and understanding the Quran is essential for all Muslims. Moreover, every Muslim is responsible for teaching this skill to their young ones, whether younger siblings or their own children. As responsible parents, there is nothing better than teaching your children to start reading the Quran from a young age.

Children are considered to be the future of a community. They are smart and learn things quickly. However, teaching children to read the Quran in Arabic can be challenging as it is a language that might not interest them.

Parents can implement several tips and tricks in their daily lives to make the Quran more accessible to their children. But first and foremost, parents must also learn to be supportive and consistent. In this article, we will discuss the top ten tips to help your child learn the Quran in 2024.

 

1.    Share the Inspirational Stories in the Quran

The Quran is a book of knowledge. It is a book sent by Allah himself and therefore, instructed us to read and believe in it. In Quran Allah says,

Those to whom We have sent down the Book, and who read it as it should be read, believe in it truly”

Al-Quran (2:121)

The Quran teaches us lessons of the past, present as well as future. Rarely does a book ever cover all these aspects of life. There are a number of stories mentioned in the Quran that can serve as life lessons for children.

You can read them the stories of the Sahaba and other prophets who helped spread Islam before the Holy Prophet PBUH. These stories will not only increase the understanding of the Quran but will also help build their interest in reading the Holy Book

 

2.    Find Fun Ways to Teach the Quran

By nature, children are always attracted to attractive and enjoyable things. Never force the child to read the Quran. It can create an aversion towards the Holy Book. Instead, look for creative ways to teach them the Quran so that they become willing to learn. You can buy them colorful Quran of their favorite colors or you can download interactive Quran apps that can increase their interest.

 

3.    You Are the Prime Example

Children mimic whatever they see in their environment. They see you as their guide and teacher since you are present around your children around the clock. You must set an example if you wish to see your children regularly reading the Quran. Make a daily routine to read the Quran. It can be in the evening or early morning. Your children will see this habit and try to build this habit as well.

 

4.    Include Visual and Auditory Elements

Children respond nicely to visual aids and anything that looks like a toy. You can create colorful charts, posters, or flashcards that resemble the Arabic alphabet.

You can also add simple rhymes or duas to their daily routine so that they can grasp the concept in tiny baby steps. Apart from visual aids, you can also make them listen to the verses or Quranic recitations. Another fun activity is to take a sandbox and draw the Arabic alphabet. It is one of the best ways to improve learning with the help of touch and movement.

 

5.    Incorporate Quranic Teachings in Everyday Life

You can also help your kids learn the Quran by relating its teachings to daily life moments. Connect the lessons of the Quran to moral values and stories of situations that you encounter daily. This synchronization of the Quran with their daily lives can make learning more practical and meaningful.

 

6.    Celebrate Their Achievements

One of the best tips for improving your child’s learning performance is to support them in the process. You must recognize and appreciate any milestone your kid achieves while learning the Quran. It can be as little as memorizing a verse or improving pronunciation. Showing enthusiasm catapults their learning process in a completely new direction. It will also motivate them to learn the words of the Quran eagerly.

 

7.    Take Tests Regularly

Train your children to repeat the verses and make a habit of taking tests regularly. As beginners, you can give them a verse to recite and learn and then revise the verse daily. You can then arrange these tests weekly where you ask them randomly to recite the XYZ verse that they have already learned. These regular tests will help them to consistently build their progress and they will also become fluent with these efforts.

 

8.    Involve the Community

Oftentimes, children learn from one another. You can involve other children from the Muslim community and make them involved in Quranic activities. There can even be a weekly meetup where all the children can gather and get rewarded for achieving their weekly goals. Being a part of a Muslim community encourages learning among the children.

 

9.    Adapt to How Your Child Learns

You must teach your child according to his level of intelligence, not yours. Every child is different, and they have unique learning styles, too. Some learn better in a quiet environment, while some prefer being around children. Observe and understand how your child prefers to learn. Once you have this information at hand, you can customize your teaching methods according to their preferences.

 

10.                    Use Technology

Nowadays, kids love anything related to technology. They love watching videos on YouTube and playing games on apps. Technology is not always bad. Plenty of age-appropriate apps offer interactive ways for the child to learn the Quran. However, you must ensure that screen time is within limits. Also, watch the content they are viewing that aligns with your goals and values.

 

At What Age Should You Teach the Quran to Your Child?

There is no hard and fast rule or age limit on when your child should start learning the Quran. However, the earlier, the better. You can start around three to six years of age and teach them the alphabet or short supplications. By the time they reach six to seven years of age, they will be ready to start reciting the Quran.

 

Conclusion

In conclusion, we must say that teaching the Quran to a child may not be easy, especially in today’s world with so many distractions. However, it is not impossible. As parents, learn to be patient with your kids and make sure they see it as a fun activity rather than a chore. Always take things slow and motivate them to do things better.
