Quran Skills for Moms

My Sunday mornings since the last week of July were filled with having tajwid class at Al Falah mosque which was held by MuslimParents.SG. When my friend T informed me about this course that she's planning to join, I was a bit reluctant because the mosque is located in Orchard area which is quite far from where I stay, it approximately needs about one hour travel by bus/train. But I'm happy that at that time I eventually decided to join the course regardless that distance issue, because I do really have a lot of lessons learned. I usually think that at my age, I could already be able to recite quran because we've learned it when we're still very young, but little did I know that I actually didn't read it properly, as in with proper tajwid and correct pronunciation. From this class, I found out that I am still lacking here and there with tajwid, and still have some weaknesses with makhraj. After finishing the Basic Quran Skills for Moms class, I decided to join the Intermediate class right away. In the Intermediate course we practiced the tajwid that we've learned so far by reading the last 20 surahs of quran intensively

I really love this course because we learn in a child friendly environment, I could bring S to the class where she could also learn and see how quran class is conducted, so I hope later when we are about to enroll her to quran class for her age she would already feel familiar with it. And also here we actually learn not because we have to in order to get achieve high score, like we were when we're in school,  but it's all for our own sake. For us alone so that we can start recite quran properly.

Actually, as a staying at home mother of a preschool toddler, I feel that I need to have a proper basic knowledge of quran  reading in order to be a good first madrasah for my child. So, I fully recommended this course for fellow mothers who plan to teach their children to read alquran at home.

The highlights of this course are that the participants get the very basic understanding of how to read quran, starting from how to pronounce a letter with the right makhraj, something that we usually overlook just because we thought we already do it right since we had learnt it long time ago in our childhood. I also love the idea that the teacher brought where we don't need to memorize all the letters and the tajwid rule names, but only just by looking at the marks like sukun, tanwin, and all.



I hope I could continue my quran learning journey after these courses. Still trying to find the suitable one, hopefully soon insya Allah.
