Help your Children Memorise the Quran FAST!

Help children memorise the Quran

Many of us dream that our children will memorise the Quran.

We hope that etching those noble words into their hearts will help to shape them as they grow up; that the Quran they learnt as children is never forgotten but is a source of support and guidance for them throughout their adult lives. We hope that memorising the Quran will raise their rank, and ours, in the next world. Ameen

“The one who recites the Quran and learns it by heart, will be with the noble righteous scribes (in Heaven) and the one who exerts himself to learn the Quran by heart and recites it with great difficulty, will have a double reward.”

(Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 4653; Muslim, 798)

This inspiring story is from one of our readers, Sr. Sarwat Hussain, who has kindly allowed us to share her wisdom and advice on how you can help your children to memorise the Quran fast. inshallah.

All Praise is due to Allah, the most merciful and beneficent.

Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu, I am Sarwat Hussain.

Alhamdulillah I am blessed with two kids, Maryam and Ibrahim. Maryam is 8 and Ibrahim is 7. Maryam started memorizing the Quran at 6 and completed at 8, Alahamdulillah. It was a great journey. My both kids are homeschooled.

The first time I noticed Maryam’s interest in Quran was when she was sitting next to me holding the Quran. She started saying Subhanallah. She was just 18 months old!

Alhamdulaiilah, we just got more organized. We just made sure all necessary duties were taken care of so we could sit with Maryam without any interruptions.

With our support, she spent 3.5-4 hours a day memorising the Quran.

Maryam also used to attend the local masjid for the hifz classes three days a week. Our local Imam kindly offered us classes online too.

 She use to listen Imam Misri Al Afasy audio to correct her tajweed. We established the rule to repeat every new Ayah at least TEN times before moving onto the next one.

You can listen to the Quran, and Imam Misri Al Afasy audio on Amazon Music!

After that she would connect everything together and read it back to me. 

We started with three Ayahs per day. As time went on, subhanallah, she was able to do it 3 pages per day Alhamdulillah.

I always with her while memorizing new Ayas. The biggest challenge was to keep up with the Juz she had already  memorized (Manzil). Now I listen to her recite two juz per day as revision. 


The children have very limited access to the TV and Gadgets. Throughout our Quran learning we have sat in a quiet room. We never sat where there were other people to distract us. We think this was the key. She had online hifz classes also and we were very strict with attending this class.

As parents, we always try to teach them that Islam is not separate from our daily life. Islam is not just about performing Salah or reading the Quran. It is a way of life. You practice it in everything. We always teach them to be good with neighbors and respect the others from the different belief systems.

It is not an easy journey. We turned to Allah for the guidance and make dua for them whenever we face the challenges and always tell them that “You are very special, Allah likes you lot and bestowed his blessings to memorize his book, Al Quran Kareem”. We try to talk about the Angels, Jannah and the shaytaan.

Bedtime Quran stories and Seerah stories helped us lot to motivate them. We are still learning and improving ourselves to raise them as a good Muslims. Please pray for them.

May Allah make them among the most righteous of Muslims. Ameen. Ya Rabbul Alameen.

Alhamdulillah, Maryam started learning Arabic language. Inshallah, it will help her to understand the Quran with detail so that she can teach the importance of the Quran to the young generation. Inshallah, this will help to motivate and inspire them to learn and memorize the Quran.

We would love to provide some tips to the parents who are planning to choose this path.

Teach TAJWEED RULES To Your Children with Nursery Rhymes!

Teaching our children to recite the Quran correctly is so
important as Muslim parents. Tajweed Rulesthe rules of Quranic recitation, should
be done in young children, so that mistakes do not need to be corrected in
later years.

This post was written in partnership with Olive Tree Study Support.

However, we all know that trying to teach Tajweed to young children
can be challenging. Young children do not want to sit in formal lessons for too
long. The rules can seem complicated and the terminology over-whelming.

So how
can we teach young Muslim children the rules of Quranic recitation? Through
Nursery Rhymes or Nasheeds!!!

How to Teach Tajweed Rules

We all recognise how quickly our children retain the songs
they hear. Whether it’s from school, or from the TV, songs have a way of
sticking in the memory of children. Even now, I can remember the words to songs
I sang as a child.
Tahera Akther, the founder of Olive Tree Study Support, has
created a collection of rhyming songs to help teach your children the rules of
They are so much fun! Honestly, your kids are going to love
The tracks are named Mysterious Makharij, Stretchy Madd
Tabeei, Best friend meem & noon (my personal favourite!), Jumpy Qalqalah and
Friendly Meem Saakina!
Despite having no music, only drums with child vocals, the
songs are ridiculously catchy! They are so easy to repeat and easy for children
to memorise.
In fact, they’re a little difficult to get out of your head!
I love the idea of using rhyme to help young kids remember
their Tajweed rules. They introduce your children to some of the basic rules of
Tajweed and, insha’Allah, spark a passion for the study of Quran in later
We’ve been listening to these songs whenever there’s a quiet
moment in our homeschool day; whilst the kids are colouring or playing, or
whilst they’re having a snack.
It’s a great way for parents to teach their
children the rules of Quranic recitation, without them realising its happening!

They can listen and learn whilst….

And eating lunch!

After listening to these songs, I would recommend them to
children aged 4- 9.

To get the most from the CD, they should have had
some exposure to the rules of tajweed previously, so they can understand some
of the terminology used.

They were perfect for my 4 and 6 year-old boys, and my
little baby girl seemed to enjoy dancing around to them too! …We all did!
This collection of Tajweed Nursery Rhyme songs is available to buy as a CD or MP3 download. If you’d like to listen to the songs, you can hear
a sample of the nasheeds on their website. Click HERE to listen!

It is such an honour to share these Tajweed nursery rhymes with you. I genuinely love them! They’re fun, upbeat and so catchy! I often find myself singing them when the kids are asleep!

The Fun way to Learn Tajweed Rules

These great quality children’s songs are a fantastic way to
introduce Tajweed to, and inculcate a love of the Quran in, young Muslim

I would recommend this CD to all madrasas, as well as any parent
eager to encourage their children to recite correctly from an early age.
