this method is one that I really like for teaching children or any beginners.
I have some other young children that I teach and this is the technique we use. Alhamdulillaah I find it to be really effective and easy to work with. (more…)
Our new schedule
I have put the order of sequence rather than times as these may vary from day-to-day.
- Review: Read 10 pages of review before breakfast. They take 10 pages of what they have previously memorised and read this looking at the mushaf. They do this fairly quickly approx 15mins. (more…)
I mentioned before in my last depressing post that I was going to try a new method to sabotage my self-sabotaging ways!
Here it is……My Weekly Planner.
Admittedly its nothing special. It’s just a normal 7 day table for my daily activities, but the way I use it helps me a lot. (more…)
we have now started a new review schedule alhamdulillaah.
We used to read half a juz (10pages) every day before breakfast but now that they have memorised that amount I felt that they would need to increase the amount they review to 1 juz per day so that they can read it all in a week. I think that even though its more work it makes things firmer in the memory to review everything in a week. The plan is to eventually read 5 ajzaa per day but that is much much later. We tried reading the other half juz in the evening just before bed but that was an unreliable time as sometimes we would be tired or I would be busy with other things. (more…)
just a quick update. The children haven’t started any new hifdh yet. Since they arrived at 7 ajzaa (Allahumma baarik alayhimaa) we have taken the past 2 weeks to review everything they have learned. Reviewing 1/2 juz per day we should be done by the end of next week in-shaa Allaah. We are also trying to get used to reading a juz per day and alhamdulillaah it seems as though we have finally found a good time to do this.
May Allaah bless them.
I have a lovely book called “Kayfa tahfadh al-Qur’aan al-Kareem (how to memorise the Noble Qur’aan)” by Dr Yahya Ibn Abdur-Razaq Al-Gawthaany. Maasha Allaah its a really lovely book and it combines between the main principles of memorisation and different methods in which it can be done. My husband and I will try our best to give basic/general translations of some of these methods to share with you in-shaa Allaah.
The first we have chosen is:
Al-Hifdh Bayna Ithnayn/Memorisation Between Two
The author (hafeethahullaah) said what could mean: (more…)
Alhamdulillaah, today the babies…well babies to me at least, they finished suratul Anbiyaa, before me I might add. I started way before them but stopped on the 8th pg to go back and tighten up Al-israa and then zooooooooom they came up and and flew past me maasha Allaah! I’ll be posting the chart for suratul Hajj soon in-shaa Allaah.
I pray that they preserve the Qur’aan better than the people preserve their most precious gold ameen.
It amazes me that for every ayah we read our beloved Prophet (sallahu alaihi wa sallam) will gain more reward, our first teacher subhan Allaah.
