Teach Your Children the Qur’ān

Listen to Sultanق’s Sohbah here:(5:51)

Read Sultanق’s Sohbah here:


Our Holy Prophet ṣallá Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam says,

خَيْرُكُمْ مَنْ تَعَلَّمَ القُرْآنَ وَعَلَّمَهُ”,

Khayrukum man ta‘allama l-Qur’ān wa ‘allamah”, “The best among you is he who learns and teaches the Qur’ān.” The best of you is the one who learns and teaches the Qur’ān, he ﷺ says. Now when it is summer time, children go from their schools to the mosque to learn the Qur’ān. People are sending them, but not as much as they used to before.

So, today or tomorrow, with Allāh’s ﷻ permission, they will start giving Qur’ān lessons in mosques. Even one day is better than what they study the whole year. Even one hour is better than all they read. Because they are reading the word of Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla. Along with that word, light descends to their hearts. It becomes a means for goodness.

Everything done for the sake of Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla is good for people. Whatever they study, they should not forget Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla. In order for the knowledge they studied to be means for goodness, it should be studied with that intention.

Because children’s schools are bad. “We pay this much, we pay that much.” People don’t know anything but to give money. “Let my son study too, let my daughter get a diploma.” We don’t know what they’ll do with the diploma. People are obsessed with the diploma. They are not thinking of anything else. They do not think about the ākhirah.

Here, Qur’ān courses are opened. A few children go there. May Allāh ﷻ be pleased with them. Even if it is for about a month, still there are many shaytans disturbed by what they have learned. Because what they learn is the way of Allāh ﷻ. They teach the word of Allāh ﷻ. But they teach the way of shaytan, the word of shaytan. Of course, they don’t want that. But for goodness, it is a great necessity, a great benefit for human beings, young and old, to learn the Qur’ān.

Therefore, it is not difficult. Because sixty or seventy years ago, or even more, they changed the alphabet of the Qur’ān. “It is very difficult. People cannot read it.” However, everyone was reading it. They made everyone ignorant overnight. They cannot read Latin letters. But there is no difficulty. People have been reading it for years. They learn all kinds of languages. They learn Chinese, Tut, Japanese and I don’t know what. They know everything. When it comes to the word of the Qur’ān, it is very difficult to read it.

However, with the permission of Allāh ﷻ, a person can read in a week if he makes an effort. If he couldn’t read in a week, he can read in a month. Here they’re teaching children to read in a month. If not one month, then in two months, five months, one year, one can easily read.

When you read, Allāh ﷻ writes thousands of Thawāb for each letter and gives thousands of rewards. In Qur’ān ‘Azīmu sh-Shān there are all kinds of goodness, Shifā, Barakāh, light and Imān. Every beauty is in it. It is the word of Allāh ﷻ. It is the most precious thing. It is the best and the most beautiful of what is given to people as a gift from Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla. There is nothing more beautiful than it in dunyā.

People are not aware of it. Those who are aware are only a few. May Allāh ﷻ increase them in shā’a Llāh. It will give clarity of mind to those who read it. May it be means for goodness. Because they most probably start today or tomorrow. This will be a beautiful education and training in shā’a Llāh to people. May it be beneficial for the children in shā’a Llāh. May they be beneficial for this country, the Ummāh and Islam in shā’a Llāh.

Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
