After renewed inspiration to get Junayd to be a haafizh (inshaa`Allaah), I am trying to be more disciplined with the memorisation of the Qur`aan.
I remember once reading that many parents expect their children to love the deen, practice it and even memorise the Qur`aan when they (the parents) are not doing so themselves. I believe this to be so true, subhaaAllaah.
I notice that when I regularly recite the Qur`aan out loud when revising, Junayd often follows suit, mashaa`Allaah.
This week’s first Qur`aan session was so lovely, mashaa`Allaah. I did revision of sooraat with Junayd and I think I’ll be taking it one aayah at a time, rather than one soorah at a time. I know this sounds logical, but previously I would do a whole soorah a day – Junayd would get the general jist of the soorah, but being the perfectionist mum that I am, I was always dissatisfied with his articulation of letters. Now we are sticking with Soorah al-Masad until he gets it right, inshaa`Allaah.
I utilise the Soorah charts that can be found here: Tabidden Jr Qur`aan section
While I’m on this subject, when did you all begin teaching the tajweed rules to your kiddies?
