Problem to get Quran teacher for kids and teach Quran For kids beginners, we see the lap of the mother is the first school of the child. Being Muslim parents, as our children grow up, we feel very worried about how to teach kids Quran.

Just as we are worried about their practical education, we send them to school, set up tuition for them, in the same manner, we must be highly concerned about teaching the Quran to kids.

Obviously, parents especially mothers are responsible for the personal grooming and teachings of a child, so this response is primarily your duty.

Feeling the weight of responsibility on our shoulders, we come across many questions regarding teach Quran to kids. For example, how to start teaching your child Quran, what is the right age to start teaching the Quran, how would the startup be taken, which method of Quran was learning to choose.

Where your child would go to the mosque, a tutor would come home to teach Quran, and you would learn the Quran or some online Quran learning?

Right Age to Start Teaching Quran:

Let’s begin from the very starting point, and the very first question arises ” when to start or what is the right age to teach your child the Quran and by what age they have finished.”

A definite answer to that question is, there is no clear-cut age boundary to start with and to end. It is thought that the age of 4-5 years is ideal for starting Quran learning.

But some mothers keep on reciting while pregnant and breastfeeding with the hope this will impact their children. You can begin at an age even less than four years, depending on the abilities and interests of your child.

My younger brother had his surah Fatiha memorized by age less than three though he wasn’t able to even recognize alphabets. Keep in mind; every child has its pace of learning, do not compare them with others ( your cousin, neighbor had finished the Quran at the age of 7, and you still haven’t been nine years old).

It doesn’t mean that you give them a free hand to keep on delaying their daily sessions, but the point is, such an attitude can demotivate your child.

Tips To Learning Quran For Kids:

In the following text, we would present you with some of the tips for the Quran to kids. These little points would help you a lot in ways to teach the Quran to children.

    1. Set yourself as a role model or an example, in front of the child, to follow you. Recite Quran daily, and make sure your kids are around you when you are quoting the holy book.
    2. Recite Quran in a loud and catching tone; this would make them attracted to what you are reading.
    3. Try to make the start of the day of your kid “ recitation of Quran.” Develop a habit of reciting the Quran after Fajr. So that when your child opens his/ her eyes in the morning, the very first sound entering his ears is of Quran.
    4. Tell them stories of the Quran. Your bedtime story can be anyone described in the Quran. And do give them the reference of the story as the Quran. Urge them to look up into the Quran themselves. Keep on telling them about the reward of Quran recitation.
    5. Keep on telling them about the reward of Quran recitation, e.g., it makes Allah happy, Prophet (s.a.w) said that its best of learning, etc.

Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) said:

“The best of you are those who learn the Qur’an and teach it. ~ Bukhari Vol 6 – 61:545

Tips to Boost After Starting Quran for Kids:

These were the tips to boost up your child to start learning the Quran. Now if your child has begun learning the Quran, the following tips would help you a lot.

1)      Keep it simple at the outset. Don’t force your child to spend a lot of time learning the Quran. Let him do it at his comfort level. For example, 10 minutes of dedicated and happy learning would be a lot better than an hour of learning by force, against the will of your child.

2)      Let them know that something extraordinary will follow Quran time, like a good story or playtime with mom.

3)      Set goals and rewards for achieving a goal. Eg. You will buy your child a remote control car if he/she finishes a chapter of the Quran in a specified time.

4)      Play Quran softly in the home during playtime, morning routine, end-of-night routine. Turn off the TV

5)      Recite short Quran surahs in the car on the way to school, or shopping, etc.

6)      Keep the mood loving during the learning process. Give your child lots of hugs and cuddles.

7)      Don’t punish them hard, or do not get tired of repeated mistakes of your baby while learning the Quran. Be patient. Every child has its own pace of work.

8)      You can encourage healthy competition between your kids, e.g., “ who finishes his/ her lesson first, will be given a surprise gift.”

9)      Aim to do two short Quran sessions a day. Like one after Fajar and one before Asar prayer. This way if you miss one, you won’t feel bad.

10)   Keep interaction with the tutor ( if you choose to have a home tutor or online tutor for Quran learning). Discuss the progress of your child with the teacher on a regular basis.

    you may teach them the translation of stories from Quran. Naturally, kids listen to stories with attention. It will be a nice way of creating love of Allah and his prophets in the hearts of kids
