New Charts for Juz Dhariyat

Bismillaah…

Assalaamu alaikum

I just made some new charts to help monitor progress for Juz Dhariyaat. As you can see my design themes are pretty basic.  If you’d like to use them but maybe a different colour just send me a message and I’ll change them for you in-shaa Allaah.

What a surprise!!!

Bismillaah…..

Assalaamu alaikum,

today was the official start after Eid.  Everyone had  recovered (somewhat) from all the late nights of Ramadhan and early morning and parties of Eid and was ready to work again.  I was a little worried that they would have forgotten some ayaat over the holiday period so as tired as I still was, we couldn’t delay any longer.

I sat with the children to read Al-Hashr.  I asked my daughter to close her eyes and read as much as she could so I would know where to start hifdh from.  Then she read…..and read….  and read…until maasha Allaah to my surprise she got to the end.  We all cheered and made dua for her with hugs and kisses all round.  Her brother asked her “how did you know the end like that?” and she replied “I don’t know, I just knew it”.  I was really happy as it seemed that playing the tapes of the surahs  in their room had worked alhamdulillaah.

A Beautiful Documentary: Qur’aan By Heart

Bismillaah…

Assalaamu alaikum,

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.

Happy Days….Maasha Allaah!!!

Bismillaah…

Assalaamu alaikum,

Help to Understand the Qur’aan for those with little time

Bismillaah…

Assalaamu alaikum,

Here’s a really nice website for learning Arabic maasha Allaah.  It’s geared towards learning to understand the Qur’aan rather than conversation.  It’s also laid out in a way that has made it really easy and fun to follow maasha Allaah.

There are a few different courses to choose from with videos and Powerpoint presentations to follow.  Each lesson is about only about 15 minutes long which is nice especially if you on a tight schedule.

The best part is that they have promised that if you get to the end of the course you’ll understand 80% of the words in the Qur’aan subhan Allaah….not bad for 15 minutes per day huh!

The courses available in English are as follows: (more…)

Hifdh Charts

Bismillaah…

Assalaamu alaikum

I have here some charts to help monitor progress for Juz Tabaarak and Juz Qad Sami’.  It’s also really good motivation for my children, they colour in the stars/hearts when they have finished the surah and its nice for them to look at how far they’ve come. (more…)
