Qur'aan School

I am in a school now, as teacher, not student... although I would love to be a student once more; having been both I can easily say it is much easier to learn than to teach.

The school is run by my father, and focuses mainly on correct recitation of the Qur'aan ie recitation with tajweed. From 9 am in the morning until 12:30 the focus is on Qur'aan. After Zuhr is the academic part. The boys  study in the masjid while the girls study in the women section. Boys nine and older are not allowed to come where the girls are.

Before the actual learning starts, we have an assembly. Assembly is basically where the teacher recites Surah Faatihah and the last ten surahs verse by verse, the students repeating, and then a small du'aa. Today a student led the assembly. Masha Allah, his tajweed and recitation was beautiful.

At 3:30 the morning school finishes and we the teachers have 1.5 hour break. 5 pm until 7:30 is the evening Qur'aan classes. By the time we reach home, it is around 8:30 pm. Quite a long day and tiring!

Alhamdu Lillah though, unlike many, many people in the world, our day is spent listening to children reciting the Qur'aan. I honestly cannot think of a more barkat filled day!

This is the online school for anyone who wants to learn tajweed online. All you need is a headset and a microphone!
