The Prophet(sa) said:
“It shall be said – meaning to the one who memorized the Qur’an – ‘Recite, and rise up, recite (melodiously) as you would recite in the world. For indeed your rank shall be at the last Ayah you recited.”
Each parent dreams the most excellent for their child. They wish that their children do better than them, in this world and within the following. We were not distinctive. We craved unceasing victory for our children and this hadith was a reply to what we were looking for – making a difference for our kids to memorize the Quran would donate our children a way to urge them to the most noteworthy place in Jannah. And so we set out on our journey!
Here are a few tips to assist you begin your children on the travel to memorize the Quran, that we have learned along the way
1. Model What You Want Your Children to Emulate:
Children learn more from their guardians’ activities than their commands. Lock in yourself with the Quran, attempt to memorize parts of it yourself and you may take note that your children will take more interest in picking up the Quran themselves. Activities talk louder than words!
2. Create the Desire
We saw around us numerous children who were memorizing the Quran unwillingly. We listened to stories of children who had overlooked parts of the Quran and those who had troubled affiliation with the Book of Allah since they were coerced and pressured by their guardians. This was certainly not what we needed to attempt to make a want in our children’s hearts for the Book of Allah. We related to them the numerous rewards, let them observe recordings of youthful children who have memorized the Quran, and told them about the huffaz at the time of the Prophet (sa) so that they want to memorize what was developed inside them.
Not that there aren’t times when we’ve had to constrain them to pay consideration, or to urge objectives completed, but the choice to memorize the Quran lies with the children themselves.
3. Provide the right environment
It is difficult for the Quran to exist within the heart when the intellect is possessed by music, TV, cartoons, etc. It is the job of the parent to form an environment conducive to learning the Quran by keeping their children absent from negative impacts and allowing them to go frequently to the masjid, assemble great Muslims and devout individuals, and go to gatherings where they can learn almost the deen. A hifz family is more distinctive than a typical family!
I studied these lines of verse composed by Imam Shafi’ in a web journal online and they have remained with me since:
4. Pacing is Everything
A few children can learn 4 pages each day. Others battle with three lines. Each child is distinctive. Pace your child concurring to his level. Don’t put a timeline on when the hifz has to wrap up. Indeed on the off chance that it could be a deep-rooted errand, remember quality is way better than amount. Let your children learn with adoration in their hearts instead of stretching.
One of my children battles more than his sister and brother. But he knows that the Prophet (sa) said: “Such an individual, who presents the Qur’an and experts it by heart, will be with the respectable noble copyists (in heaven). And such an individual, who applies himself to memorize the Qur’an by heart and recounts it with awesome trouble, will have a twofold reward.” (Bukhari)
5. Revise and Review
Donate your children the opportunity to change and survey, indeed on the off chance that implies putting a halt to learning modern saba (lesson). It is exceptionally simple to disregard the Quran and consequently the Prophet (sa) prompted us: “Keep on presenting the Qur’an, for, by Him in Whose Hand my life is, the Qur’an runs absent (is overlooked) speedier than camels that are discharged from their tying ropes.” (Bukhari)
Typically simpler said than done. But that’s when mother must step in and make beyond any doubt it is done!
6. Provide Incentives
Blessings, embracing appreciation, remunerate charts, stars, point of reference charts, and remunerate jugs are all awesome ways to induce the kids to be persuaded. Insha Allah I will type in a partitioned blog on this since this has to be handled carefully to not make the kids materialistic however ought to be done since they are kids and require concrete rewards to keep them going.
