we have started a new blog alhamdulillaah. We plan to fill it with audios that children can listen to in-shaa Allaah.
We called it
Mulim Radio ….I know not very imaginative but I couldn’t think of anything else at the time lol! (We have since changed it to Muslim-Listening…a little bit better lol)
There will be a combination of English and Arabic stories. I’m often asked what we do to maintain the childrens Arabic and listening to Arabic stories is one of the main things we do. We’re basically trying to provide a music-free* alternative to TV. (more…)
I saw this cute video and had to share it with you, my children couldnt believe it maasha Allaah may Allaah bless him.
Forgive me there is a little music in the beginning so please mute your speakers for the first few seconds.
Heres a lovely documentary, “Qur’an by Heart” about children from around the world taking part in the annual Cairo International Holy Qur’an Competition. Its for children that have memorised the entire Qur’aan. They’re sat in front of a special computer that selects a random portion which they then must recite (with correct tajweed) before a group of scholars from Al-Azhar and an audience.
It follows three Muslim youths — Nabiollah from Tajikistan, Rifdha from the Maldives, and Djamil from Senegal — as they enter into an annual Koran-reciting competition in Cairo, Egypt. The competition attracts hundreds of Muslims from all over the world, many of whom don’t speak Arabic, but are able to recite the entire 600-page Koran — and beautifully.
I wanted to share an article I have about the importance of reading the Qur’aan with Tajweed. This is a science that is often overlooked in modern times. We are a nation that strive to follow the Qur’aan and Sunnah (with the understanding of the Salaf) in our lives. We try hard to learn and find out what the Prophet Muhammad (sallahu alaihi wa sallaam) did in his life so that we can imitate him. We do this with the hope of gaining more good reward from Allaah as we know his example is the best to follow. This should be the same for the Qur’aan as the study of tajweed helps us to know how our beloved Prophet (Sallaahu alaihi wa sallaam) recited the Qur’aan.
The article was originally taken from the excellent tajweed website About Tajweed http://www.abouttajweed.com/index.php Maasha Allaah May Allaah bless them and their work, it’s a really good reference and you can even write to them and ask questions that do get answered.
Heres the article:
