How To Teach Your Kids The Quran


Learning the Quran is an incredible feat for children and adults, alike. It is an undeniable fact, however, that the earlier one begins to invest in reading and learning our Holy Book, the easier the journey through the Quran will become as an adult. But teaching our children to learn, appreciate and understand the Quran is a challenge that many face. How do I start? When do I start? How do we get children excited about the Quran? What about the language barrier? We are joined by Imam Wisam Sharief who is a specialist in teaching Quran recitation and retention to help guide us on how to teach our children the Quran. He is the founder and director of AQL (Advocating Quranic Lifestyle). He is also a Quran teacher, and the creator of Quran Revolution, an interactive program designed to teach the Quran to students of different levels.
