  1. Tajweed consists of two parts which related to the essence of their meaning: The Scientific Tajweed: It is the knowledge of Quran Tajweed rules and characteristics in the certified books. This part is a collective duty which means if a few Muslims learn and memorize it, it was made to fall from the others; but if no one does then all the Muslims are in sin. That is because it is one of the legal science and for that, there is a MUST to be in each of the Islamic countries of different languages tutors taught it. Allah Almighty said," And it is not for the believers to go forth [to battle] all at once. For there should separate from every division of them a group [remaining] to obtain understanding in the religion and warn their people when they return to them that they might be cautious. The Practical Tajweed: It is the implementation of phonetic rules of Quranic recitation and reading Quran with tajweed as it was revealed to the Prophet Muhammed (Peace be upon him). It is required upon every legally competent Muslim of a responsible age to perform religious duties in Islam and to recite Quran with tajweed properly. Allah Almighty said, "….And recite the Quran with measured recitation. Levels of Reciting (Tajweed) the Holy Quran There are three levels of recitation that exist in tajweed. They are classified according to the human ear which can only recognize them as a slow recitation, a fast recitation and a moderate recitation (neither slow nor fast). A-Tahqîq: (slowness without elongation), which is the slowest recitation without elongation that encourages to reflect upon the words and meanings and that allows hearing the tajweed rules very clearly. This level exemplified by the simplicity and care in articulating the letters of Quran words. Al-Hadr: (fast reading without merging of the adjacent letters), which is a quick recitation that utilized for revision; thus it is very close to everyday speech rhythm. When reading with Hadr, there is a danger of minimizing the timing of the letters and merging one into another. However, there is no problem with reciting the Quran with Hadr, provided that there is no idghaam (merging of the adjacent letters) or reduction in the required time of the letter articulation. At-Tadweer: (letters moderation in recitation), which is reading in between Al-hadr and Al-Tahqiq, neither too fast nor too slow. Common Tajweed Mistakes It is vital that the Muslims learn the Arabic letters and vowels to recite the Quran using them, not a transliteration. Transliterations do not take into consideration the several letters that sound similar to the untrained ear but are very different in pronunciation. The Quran is the word of Allah, revealed to man as a guide, and we have to be extremely careful when reading it, as best we can, with proper pronunciation. Reading a transliteration can lead to a change in the meaning of the Holy Quran by mispronouncing its Arabic letters. The most critical mistakes Muslims do when reciting the Holy Quran are: The first mistake, made by Arab and non-Arab Muslims alike, is in making inappropriate starts and stops. There are two issues of this mistake. The first issue is that the appropriate way to stop on a word is by putting a sukoon, or absence of a vowel on the last letter of the word. It is not permitted to stop using the harakah, or vowel on the last letter of the word. The second issue of stopping is that of stopping at a place that does not contradict the meaning intended by Almighty Allah, the Exalted. The same mistake can occur when starting up after stopping and taking a breath. We cannot just start on the next word at random, that is; the meaning needs to be considered, and the start should be on a word that represents the absolute and perfect meaning, even if the reader needs to go back two or three words. There are two most common tajweed mistakes made by non-Arabs: the timings of the vowels (madd letters in Arabic) and in the articulation points of the letters. The first type concerning the timing of the vowels (i.e. lengthening a vowel longer than one vowel count), and natural lengthening (making them shorter than they should be). Each vowel over a letter receives one count.So a kasrah receives the same timing as a fath, as does a dhammah, whenever these letters are not followed by the madd letters alif; or a ya' with no vowel preceded by a kasrah, or wow with no vowel preceded by a dhammah). Whereas Madd letters have two vowel counts if they are not followed by a hamzah or a sukoon. All vowels, as stated above, have equal timing in length. This is not true for letters without vowels or saakin letters.The timings of saakin letters vary depending on their characteristics.The difference is in not a great length of time, though. The second type, which is in the articulation of the letters themselves, is a critical issue that needs to be addressed by all non-Arabs in any other part of the world. The problem here is not that the letters are different from Arabic than the other languages; but in fact, there are letters in Arabic the same to other languages but do not share the same articulation points with their counterparts.

However, choosing one of the online Quran coursesin which your kid has a lot of interest will definitely keep the boredom at bay. Make A Proper Schedule For Learning Another important thing that every Muslim parent has to do is to make a proper schedule for learning. This will help them to maintain consistency in kid while learning. One should include breaks so that your kid does not get bored with the continual study. Along with this, one also ensure that their kids do not have much focus on playing video games, watching TV, or performing other activities. There should be proper balance if you want your kids motivated when studying Quran online. Create An Atmosphere of Learning As a Muslim parent, you should develop a proper atmosphere of learning. Means, Quran learning should be more entertaining. To make their learning fun, you can prefer telling your kids about different stories in the Quran.

  4. Teaching children the Quran is not bounded to teaching them the provisions of the book and its teachings, but is a revival of their souls, illumination of their minds, and lighten their insight. Every Muslim parent has the responsibility to teach his children the Quran. He has to teach them the values of the Quran stories, help them to understand the wonders of the Quran, and realize how much the Quran is valuable for our lives. Learning Quran for children is the best method for creating a conscious generation able to build an advanced society based on noble and lofty principles; However, and even with this immense responsibility, learning the Quran for your kids is not as difficult as you thought, it is a progressive process you can follow step by step accompanied by the stages of growing your children. Wouldn’t you be wondering what the most suitable age for starting this journey is? Ok, then, what if I told you that it starts from the day you know you will be a parent, from pregnancy try to make your child listen to the Quran; so, the baby will be familiar with these sounds he/ she hears_ which is scientifically proven. However, From the Islamic perspective, there is no specific age for a child to start learning the Quran, though the age of four seems appropriate for that. As known, a child may differ from another in his mental ability and intellectual aptitude. Some kids seem to mature before others mentally, thus sometimes, it is regarded that a child is similar to another in age, but the difference in their perceptions is immense. Here are some useful steps for you as a parent to teach and guide your kids for learning the Quran: First of all, the mother’s diligence in hearing the Holy Quran and reciting it during pregnancy. Many specialized scientists have stated that the fetus in the mother’s abdomen is affected by her state of joy or anger, and also affected by what she listens to or read aloud. It is confirmed by some contemporary scholars that the mother who frequently hear the Quran while pregnant give birth to a child related to the Quran. Make sure you talk with your children and tell them about Allah Subhanahu-wa-tala, the importance of the Quran, and why we should keep his teachings. You cannot start reading the instructions without the children understanding who the Almighty Allah is. Show interest in the Holy Quran and recite the Ayaat of it aloud. Make sure that the children are around you and know what you are doing; that makes them emulate the actions of yours, and keen to follow you, which motivates them to be more appealing to learn and memorize it later. Don’t forget that you are a role model in your child’s life, and they will imitate everything you do. Read the Ayaat of the Quran aloud will help the children memorize some of the words you are reading. Give your child a Quran of his own; human nature loves gifts and ownership and keens on it. If the parents managed this instinct, it would have a fabulous influence on his enthusiasm for recitation and memorizing the Holy Quran. Get the children to read an ayah from the Quran every day when he wakes up in the morning. Celebrate the achievements of your children related to the Quran, such as reciting a specific surah with the rules of tajweed well, for example, or memorizing a particular part of it. Thus, the Quran becomes for the child a reason for joy, accepting memorization, and reading with passion and enjoyment without the need for command or violence. Narrate some stories of the Quran for your children, the child loves to talk to his parents, and listen to them as they tell him some stories. Try to opt some stories of the Quran, linked with the reading of the Ayaat of the story, on the child’s hearing, which has numerous influences on his love of the Quran, his sense of equanimity with it, and his passion to learning. It is important here to choose these joyous and fascinating stories, in which the Almighty Allah promised Muslims and Muminoon with the Jannah (Paradise); so, he observes Islam from a promising prospect and because he is still very young for the execution Ayaat for those who opposed Allah’s commands. You can describe to him about a particular incident observed in the Quran.
  5. The importance of Islamic education is rising everywhere. Not only for adults, but it is also equally important for youngsters to study Islam. Getting Islamic education at an early stage is beneficial as one learns the topics more easily and efficiently. This is why online Islamic studies are a great option for Muslim parents. As we are living in a digital world, parents and children can truly benefit from taking Islamic classes online. There are so many institutes that are offering a way for kids and teens to complete Islamic courses without leaving their regular school. It is also a good option for those who are living in areas where mosques, Islamic schools or centers are not present, or whose in-person options are limited due to Covid-19. Studying from the comfort and safety of your home One of the many benefits of online Islamic studies for kids is that they can learn and attend their classes all from the comfort and safety of their home. Not only do kids feel comfortable, but parents also remain worry-free. Many parents are already taking advantage of enrolling their children into online classes, especially since the beginning of the pandemic, as it remains the easiest, most convenient and most reliable option amidst the uncertainties of the current situation worldwide. Getting full attention from the teacher In another blog article, we mentioned how a traditional classroom setting can be detrimental to a child's learning depending on their abilities, needs, and learning style. This is in part because a traditional classroom setting generally doesn't allow for the one-on-one attention that some children need to thrive in their learning. A lack of one-on-one attention from a Quran Tutor for example can make learning the Quran more arduous and less effective for children. When there are multiple students in the class, it is difficult for a tutor to focus on a single child. In an online class, children get the attention they need, they can communicate directly with their teacher and ask questions without hesitation. No need to leave the traditional education system - unless you want to! Unless your child is attending an Islamic school where they are receiving a proper Islamic education, you will need to find a local mosque or Islamic center where they have an evening or weekend school program, which will add to everyone's already hectic schedule and your weekly commute. These in-person options might not even be available to you in your area, or might be paused due to the pandemic. With online Islamic studies, you can get quality Islamic education, flexibility and convenience without having to worry about your child's regular school schedule or other extra-curricular activities because online institutes like ours generally offer classes 24/7 - which means you can also take classes yourself and advance in your own Islamic education. Everyone can finally enjoy their learning journeys without having to worry about traffic, school or other commitments. Shameless plug: If you are homeschooling your child, know that we also offer an Online Islamic Homeschool Program to help parents like you, because we know it can be intimidating to teach your child Arabic, Quran or Islam if you don't have a solid foundation yourself (and we offer Adult Group Classes as well!). Keeping your child engaged Let's face it: in the current era, it can be difficult to keep a young mind engaged and interested in their studies, especially if they already feel at odds with their deen. Going to an Islamic school or attending weekend school can be uneasy for Muslim kids and teens, and the curriculums are sometimes outdated. Switching or complementing with online Islamic studies can bring a new perspective to their learning journey: navigating new technology, interacting with their teacher one-on-one, learning through innovative platforms and engaging teaching methods can boost their motivation and confidence.
  6. Torrie embraced Islam in March 2019, masha'Allah! This life-changing decision, which she calls the best of her life, led her to embark on a learning journey with the Arabic language. She became a Studio Arabiya student in November 2020 and she is sharing her experience thus far studying Classical Arabic with us. "My journey with the Arabic language began in March of 2019, when I made the best decision of my life and converted to Islam, Alhamdulillah. When I say my journey began, that does not mean I was actively trying to learn the language. For about a year after becoming a Muslim, I truly believed that I would never be able to learn Arabic, and I even tried to tell myself that I did not need to learn it. Thankfully, my mindset began to shift as I was diving deeper into Islamic studies, trying to grasp the full beauty of Islam, and I realized the desire I had to understand the language of this complete and amazing religion. Before becoming a student at Studio Arabiya, I had no prior knowledge of reading, writing, or understanding the Arabic language. All I had been familiar with were the five daily prayers and several Arabic sayings and duas. In the Quran, Allah tells us He has specifically sent down the Quran in Arabic, for our benefit has made it easy to remember, and we are called to reflect upon the meanings of its verses: "Indeed, We have sent it down as an Arabic Qur'ān that you might understand." (Surah Yusuf, 12:2) "And We have certainly made the Qur'ān easy for remembrance, so is there any who will remember?" (Surah Al-Qamar, 54:17) "[This is] a blessed Book which We have revealed to you, [O Muḥammad], that they might reflect upon its verses and that those of understanding would be reminded." (Surah Saad, 38:29) SubhanAllah, these verses are a powerful reminder that Allah has sent the Quran in the Arabic language for a divine purpose, He has made it easy for us to learn and remember, and we should put forward our best effort to study it. Even though my studies with Studio Arabiya have only recently began, I have been able to memorize and write the Arabic alphabet, begin learning the diacritical markings, and sound out the letters to read and spell words. The learning has been very personalized, and my teacher has been moving along at the pace that works for me Alhumdulillah. Before beginning this class, I had no idea that learning Arabic would be possible for me, due to my prior incomplete attempts at learning other languages and my fully English background. My class with Studio Arabiya has given me the encouragement and momentum I needed to move forward with my pursuit in learning Arabic. It has been an exciting challenge each time I join my class and am asked to read the words on the screen. I find a new and uplifting confidence with each correctly read and written word. To anyone considering diving into learning the Arabic language, Studio Arabiya is the best place to start due to their personalized learning that allows you to start from any level. This class has given me hope that with Allah's Will and my dedication, learning this language is not only possible for me but more straightforward than I had previously thought, Alhumdulillah.

  8. 1. Make the sincere intention to memorize the Quran Allah's Messenger said: "Certainly, Allah does not look at your shapes (appearance) or wealth. But He only looks at your hearts and deeds."[Al-Bukhari and Muslim] 2. Write down your goal that you want to achieve by the end of the year You don't have to memorize the entire Quran this year - choose a reasonable goal that won't discourage you from trying to achieve this goal you have set for yourself. Keep it somewhere that you will always be reminded - on the fridge, wall, as your wallpaper on your phone, etc. 3. Break down your goal into smaller sections - How much do you need to memorize each month in order to consistently work towards your year-end goal? - How much do you need to memorize each week? After completing every section/clump, reward yourself with something nice or that you love! 4. Schedule your time with the Quran Choose a time every day where you can commit to sitting down and working on your memorization - Fajr time is the best, but if that doesn't work for you, choose a time that will set yourself up for success. 5. Set up a nice, quiet, and convenient area in your home to go to everyday for your memorization Having a place that is always set up and ready for you will make it easy for you every day - set your Quran on a small table next to a chair or cushion, so you can just sit down and start. 6. Tell someone else your goal and how you are going to achieve it Having someone keep you accountable will help you in staying consistent with your daily routine to memorize. 7. Get a memorization partner Do you have a friend or family member who has a similar goal? Ask them to join you this year and you can memorize together or keep each other updated on your progress! 8. Start a Memorizing group in your masjid Start a group in your masjid - meet once a week to review with each other and set goals for the next week. 9. Set weekly or monthly reminders on your calendar to remind you of what you are wanting to achieve Set a reminder on your calendar or phone that reminds you of your goal for the year, or for that month - always keep it in the fore-front of your mind, so you don't get off track. 10. Get a teacher to help you Meeting regularly with an online Quran teacher or one from your community can help guide you and keep you on track.
  9. Did you know that Arabic is in the top 10 of the world's most spoken languages? No wonder why so many people each year join other learners to try and master this language, whether in its literary form (Classical Arabic, or Fus'ha) or one of the many versions of Colloquial Arabic. It can feel overwhelming, though, to start learning Arabic, as this language is so different from the other linguistic families. To many beginners, it also feels like it will take them ages to even be able to hold a conversation with a native speaker. What exactly is the best way to learn Arabic, and is it possible to learn it quickly? Read on to find out! Why Learn Arabic? The Arabic language is a Semitic language that originated on the Arabian peninsula. Arabic extended across Africa and Asia from its origins in the 6th century as the Muslim World expanded. The Arabic language continued to spread in the seventh century as a consequence of Islamic conquests that spread Arabic's impact from the Middle East to Northern Africa and even parts of Spain. Arabic prospered for a time before being compelled to incorporate a new language and technologically dependent terms. Without a doubt, Arabic is one of the world's most spoken languages. Arabic is now the primary language of 26 nations throughout the world. It is spoken by a global population of 280 million people, and even well above this number if statistics were to include speakers of Arabic dialects. It is also an official working language of the United Nations. So, why is Arabic essential to us is based on the numerous reasons and benefits that studying this language provides. The Arabic language is useful for travel, business, and communication. Learning Arabic makes traveling to Arabic-speaking nations considerably easier. This is critical to remember while traveling to Arabic-speaking nations. Each region has its own Arabic dialect, which may or may not be recognized elsewhere. Learning standard Arabic rather than , on the other hand, overcomes this obstacle. Because of the high demand for this competence, companies are prepared to pay a premium for people who possess it. Some companies want Arabic speakers on board, specifically to contact local Arabic people and gain an edge. This is done when running a business that would otherwise go unnoticed if only English translation and discussions were employed. People view Arabic as an essential language for a variety of reasons, including general communication. Because it is one of the world's most spoken languages, you will be able to converse with individuals from all over the world.
  10. Have you been thinking about learning Arabic but you struggle with having the time and finding a good tutor to start with you from scratch or at your own level? Are you skeptical about learning Arabic online via video conference platforms like Skype or Zoom because you are not sure it will really work for you?

You can learn all about the Arabic language from the most basic fundamentals to the more advanced topics. The study of classical Arabic encompasses numerous sciences, all of which are addressed in our courses. Here you will discover lessons and activities to help you improve your reading, writing, pronunciation, lexicology and vocabulary, grammar and syntax, morphology, etymology, rhetoric, and poetry. Here's what you can learn with Studio Arabiya courses on Zoom in detail: 1. Arabic Reading The Arabic reading course includes learning the Arabic Alphabet (Abjad) and how the letters are read and written. There are a total of 28 letters in Arabic (Abjad). The basic shape of each of the 28 Arabic letters varies depending on whether the letter is at the beginning, middle, or end of the word. You won't be able to comprehend Arabic transcripts until you can read and write each of these letters. We even offer an Arabic Reading course specifically designed for children! 2. Arabic Pronunciation To learn Arabic pronunciation you need to learn the vowel marks (Tashkeel) that helps the reader make the Arabic sound correctly. Tashkeel refers to the tiny symbols - or diacritical marks - put above or under Arabic letters. They may or may not appear in all types of Arabic writing, such as the Modern Standard. They are, nevertheless, required in order to learn how to read and comprehend Holy books like the Quran or Ahadith (prophetic narrations ﷺ). If Tashkeel is not understood correctly, it might shift the meaning of words and cause confusion or misunderstanding. 3. Arabic Conversation Arabic conversation can easily be learnt by listening to audio materials featuring common situational contexts in Arabic. The course provides audio conversations that you can listen to at your pace, repeat and practice, as well as a lot of vocabulary needed for everyday conversations in Arabic and exercises. 4. Arabic Syntax (Nahw) Arabic Nahw teaches you the arrangement of words and phrases to create well-formed sentences. So, in order to create a useful structured sentence, you need to use Nahw rules. As a side remark, syntax (nahw) is often what we study while learning how to create appropriate speech, whether written or spoken. Without Nahw rules you can't make logical arrangements of words and your speech will sound confusing. 5. Arabic Morphology (Sarf) Arabic Morphology (sarf) is a branch of classical Arabic that focuses on the meanings derived from patterns and additional letters inside a word's structure. Tense, voice, and other implications, such as the concept of searching in the attached sample, are examples of these meanings. This is considered to be an advanced level of Arabic learning, which you also find among Studio Arabiya courses. 6. Classical Arabic Classical Arabic is the standardized literary form of the Arabic language which was in use from the 7th century through the Middle Ages (in the 1500s), reaching as far West as today's Portugal and as far East as India. It is the language of the Quran (although Quranic Arabic is really its own kind - more on that below) making it the original language of Islam, as well as many other religious and non-religious literary texts of that time period, including poetry and scientific works. Classical Arabic is now limited to mainly religious scripts and is no longer a spoken language.
  11. Unfortunately, racism has continued to be an issue worldwide in the present time as well as the past. During the time of Muhammad ﷺ, segregation was extremely common. In Mecca, where people generally identified themselves with a particular tribe, racism was a fact of life. Violence between tribes was common and only increased as Muhammad's ﷺ following grew. Muslims experienced monumental discrimination in the early days of Islam, with some being driven out of their homes for their religious beliefs. It should come as no surprise, then, that Muhammad had some pretty strong opinions about racism. Throughout his prophethood, Muhammad ﷺ encouraged his followers to be kind and courteous towards members of other tribes, races, and religions. His teachings on the importance of inclusivity can today be found in the Hadith, complementing similar sentiments in the Quran. In this article, we're going to be looking at what the Quran and Hadith have to say about racism.

Stories that go beyond time and place and will allow them to grow in their deen and face the challenges of this world, as well as prepare for the Afterlife insha'Allah. But until our children are able to understand the Quran on their own, even with a translation, they will need some help to make sense of the unparalleled Speech of their Lord. This is why so many children's authors have made it their mission to make those stories accessible to young minds and, at the same time, allow parents to find reliable sources to use for story time, at home or at school.

Fortunately, you can learn Quran with Tajweed online with multiple Tajweed lessons suitable for all ages. The most important aspect of learning Tajweed is persistence. You must have a genuine desire to learn Tajweed, whether it is basic or advanced. Then, in a sincere desire to please Allah, you must stick to what you intended.

Whether it’s for you or your kids, it’s essential to consider signing up for an online course to get in touch with a professional tutor that can teach and monitor you throughout the process. The Holy Quran is the literal words of Almighty Allah that Allah revealed as an impeccable and unmatchable source of legislation for mankind. Furthermore, it consists of rules and recommendations about all aspects of life and the afterlife. Being so important, every Muslim should read and recite the Holy Quran with Tajweed in a proper and clear manner. Allah Almighty said, "Those to whom we gave the Book recite it as it should be recited: they are the ones who believe therein. And whose disbelieve in it, those are they who are the losers." [Quran, Al-baqarah-121] Along with the Quran's profound and noble meanings, there is also its sublime language which, if recited correctly, will soften the hearts of its listeners. The reading of the Holy Quran in a leisurely and relaxed way, in order to achieve the meaning of the verses, is to understand and apply the legislation contained therein during the daily life of the Muslim; reading the Holy Quran without taking into account the various rules of tajweed may change the meaning of words as well as a complete verse.
