About This Book
Traditionally, the word used for a book that teaches a student how to read Qur'an is Qaa'idah, which literarally means a foundation. This book aims to build the foundation required to read the Qur'anic text with ease. The process of building this foundation should be gradual, so we made sure to add plenty of practice and only introduce new sounds and letters as they come in their progressive order. The focus of this book is creating literacy, therefore a heavy emphasis is not placed upon spelling words or Tajweed rules. In our experience teaching children, we found that focusing on letter recognition and building literacy skills made it easier for them to begin reading Qur'an. Intense focus on Tajweed rules and technical matters only delayed the process of learning how to read and made it difficult. So the goal here is to focus on simply learning to read, everything else can be learned and mastered slowly once the child begins Qur'an.
This book was made with parents in mind. While it is always preferred to primarily learn Qur'an from a teacher, many times we wish to practice and help our child at home but struggle to explain a concept or understand it ourselves. This is why we have included QR codes throughout the book that link to helpful videos on that topic covering everything from pronunciation, tips on teaching the section and things to be mindful of.
Finally, it is understood that everyone learns differently. While some students will grasp a concept quickly, others may struggle with a section and feel overwhelmed. This is why the book is self-paced, and although there are sections and checkpoints, they are not definite places where you must reach each lesson. Wherever you feel is suitable for your child to end the lesson for the day is completely up to you.
Do not feel overwhelmed by this journey, rather focus on the beauty of it and how rewarding it will be. The Prophet ﷺ narrated that "The best of you is the one who learns the Qur'an and teaches it (to others)." May Allah ﷻ accept all of our efforts and make us people of the Qur'an.
