The Best Way to Encourage Children to Recite the Quran?

The Qur’an is the word of Allah. It’s an honor and blessing for every Muslim parent to witness their children love the Qur’an.

Parents should encourage their children to read and love reciting the Quran. This should be done in the best way and kind manners.

Loving the Qur’an is not only limited to memorizing specific aayaat (verses) when instructed to do so. When a child loves the Qur’an, he feels the urge to recite ayat throughout the day, understand what he’s reciting, and is interested in everything related to the Qur’an. Children are predominantly influenced by their surroundings and their primary caregivers. So, the role of parents is crucial in helping children develop a strong and loving bond with the Qur’an.

FIRSTLY, we should know the distractions surrounding the child. One of the major distractions is TV and music. Both are becoming a style of life and they are a big window to further collapsing and disastrous activities that many children get involved in.

TV, for instance, lessens the interest of a child to read or focus. Many children have a problem with concentration because of the daydreams they borrow from movies and music.
SECONDLY, parents cannot make his/her child interested in doing anything unless he/she makes him weigh and feel the value of what is to be done. Partially, father or mother can use rational dialogue with their child for that purpose, but what is more important in communication is who he likes and respects and takes as a model more. If he sees that memorizing Quran is substantially doing a good image in the father and he likes his father, then that will be very helpful for a child to be interested in reading Quran.

THIRDLY, it’s very important to provide the child with fun, play and recreation. After that, a child will be absolutely ready to accept any guidance or advice from the one who entertains him.

Kids learn better when they see by example, not when they are told to do. Listen and recite the Qur’an every day; even for few minutes at a time. Showing your children the importance of the Qur’an and how much you love the Qur’an will encourage them to follow your footsteps in'sha'Allah.

My dear brothers and sisters, all you can do is try your best and trust Allah. The outcome on everything is up to Allah alone. We all want to be reunited with our children in Jannah, so let’s strive to do good and help them do the same in'sha'Allah.

Almighty Allah knows best.

In the name of Allah, most compassionate and most merciful. “From among the signs of the Hour (end of time) are that religious knowledge will be taken away (by the death of religious scholars), ignorance will prevail, drinking of alcoholic drinks, and there will be a prevalence of Zina.” – Prophet (saw) We begin our topic with these words of our beloved Prophet. How true were his words? We live in a world where all these things are prevalent and unfortunately in our Muslim community as well. Many of our Muslim brothers and sisters are trapped in the evil of Zina and it has become a norm for them, as a result they don’t even consider it haram and unlawful. Allah says in holy Quran: Sūrah al-Isrā’, 17:32: “And do not even approach zina, for it is an outrageous act, and an evil way…’’ We are not going into detail about why Zina is unlawful but in this article, you will find the consequences of this sin. How this affects a life of a person physically, mentally, spiritually and so


It’s a sad day for all those who knew Ali Banat, the young man gifted with cancer. Ali Banat was an inspiring Australian Muslim philanthropist whose diagnosis of cancer motivated him to dedicate his life to charity work. “At this point in my life, Alhamdulillah I have been gifted by Allah with cancer throughout my body and I have changed my whole life to helping people,” he said. An Inspiration to Muslim Youth A man of a kind heart was known for his charity work over the past three years. One of his biggest achievements is MATW project, (Muslims Around The World) launched in October 2015 to assist those less fortunate in the poverty-stricken areas of Togo, Africa. He was an inspiration to Muslim youth, dedicating his big fortune to charity work. His organization built mosques and schools for the less fortunate in Africa. May Allah accept it from him! Indeed, to Allah we belong and to Him we shall return. May Allah have mercy on our brother Ali Banat and make it easy


Ali Banat is a sydney born who was diagnosed with Cancer and doctors have given him only 7 months to live. Despite his circumstances, he considers this a gift from Allah. Ali Banat, is a young man who, in his own words, was “gifted” with a stage 4 cancer throughout his body. He was given just a few months to live but took this great test as an opportunity to change his life. Upon receiving this news he immediately sold his business, gave up his lavish lifestyle and prized possessions and began a new mission to give up his Dunya and work for his Akhira. Ali has humbly dedicated the remainder of his life to helping those who are far less fortunate than him and in doing so, set up the charity MATW Project (Muslims Around The World) which has already changed the lives of so many. Being diagnosed with cancer is like death sentence for many. But this is not the way Australian Muslim Ali Ali Banat sees it. For him, the sickness is unquestionably a gift from Allah. “At this point in m
