โ€œVerily, the angels lower their wings for the seeker of knowledge. The inhabitants of the heavens and earth, even the fish in the depths of the water, seek forgiveness for the scholar.

They do not leave behind gold or silver coins, but rather they leave behind knowledge. Whoever has taken hold of it has been given an abundant share.โ€ [Sunan Abiฬ„ Daฬ„wuฬ„d 3641, Grade: Sahih]

1. ย  ย  Join A good Quran school.

if you are a female who is searching for a female Quran teacher then you should focus on that particular point as many schools donโ€™t have a female teacher. Lucky for you we have the best female teachers who are qualified and will help you learn not only the Quran but also how to implement the teachings and guidance of the Quran in your life. And how to overcome the challenges that you could face.

Once you enroll in a good Quran school you will be ready to start your learning journey and take the first step toward understanding the Quran, tajweed, how to rectify your recitation, and more. Your teacher will guide you throughout the way until you master the Arabic Quran recitation.

When learning on your own, sometimes you start to feel disappointed in yourself and your hope starts to fade away, but when learning in a Quran school you wonโ€™t feel like that at all, because you wonโ€™t be alone, you will be accompanied by a teacher who guides you and encourages you to keep learning.


2. ย  ย  Take notes of your Quran recitation mistakes.

Keep a note and a recorder with you all the time, why? The best way to learn and enhance your Quran recitation is to record yourself take notes of where you got it wrong and work on enhancing these points. But it is essential to remind yourself that making a Quran recitation mistake is normal, and you will be rewarded for every try and your hard work.

Our beloved prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:

ย โ€œVerily the one who recites the Quran beautifully, smoothly, and precisely, he will be in the company of the noble and obedient angels. And as for the one who recites with difficulty, stammering or stumbling through its verses, then he will have TWICE that reward.โ€ (Sahih Al-Bukhari)

A Quran school will help you enhance and practice your recitation as there will be a teacher to guide you and correct your mistakes. All you have to do is to practice and take notes, and with time you will notice how your Quran recitation has enhanced significantly.


3. ย  ย  Record your recitation and listen to it.

In this step, you will be working on practicing and enhancing your recitation with Tajweed. After each lesson, you take in the online Quran school hold a recorder, and record your recitation. Then listen to it and take notes, see which parts you need to work on more to enhance, and if there is a rule that you donโ€™t understand tell your teacher to explain it more.

4. ย  ย  Develop a Quran Learning Schedule.

In order to fully learn and understand the Quran recitation and tajweed you shouldnโ€™t just rely on the Quran school, besides it you should revise and practice your recitation and understanding of the rules. This step is essential to enhance your understanding of each rule and succeed in learning the Quran.

Make a learning schedule but also donโ€™t push yourself too far, just look at your daily schedule and add learning the Quran to it. You donโ€™t have to learn 24 hours a day, take it easy and be patient.


5. Practice your Quran recitation with your teacher.

When learning in a Quran school you will have a teacher by your side to help you and guide you. it is essential that you practice your Quran recitation with him, donโ€™t be ashamed of making mistakes, it is a part of the learning process. And donโ€™t worry, the teacher wonโ€™t be harsh on you, instead, he will show you where you got it wrong and help you fix it.

All you need to do is choose a teacher and start learning, and all the teachers at Alhafidz Academy are kind and love to share their knowledge with their students. Plus, all our courses are personalized so if you donโ€™t like learning in a group, you need not worry about it. Take a free trial lesson and try it yourself, and you will be eager to keep learning with our teachers.


6. Revise what you have learned.

The best thing to do in order to accelerate your learning process is to revise your knowledge daily. Start your day by revising what you have learned yesterday. For instance, you can recite the verses while preparing your breakfast, or recite them on your way to work or school. Do what is best for you, and we are not saying that you should free a whole hour for revisions, no it could be a short period of time to ensure that you havenโ€™t forgotten anything.


7. Reflect upon the verses.

Once you learn the meaning of a new sura or verses in the online Quran school try to apply its teachings to your daily life. Let the Quran guide you and show you how to be a better Muslim. And remember the Quran isnโ€™t just a text that we read it is a source of guidance and a way of life.

For instance, if you are going through hardship remember to have faith in Allah and be patient, just like we learned from all the prophets. No matter what they went through they always had faith in Allah, thatโ€™s what you should do, ask Allah for help and be patient.


8. Break down the long surahs into small verses.

When learning or reading Quran it is important to understand the meaning of the surah to reflect upon its verses and learn from it. When reading the whole surah sometimes it gets difficult to comprehend therefore it is better to divide it into smaller parts and read them slowly with care. Quran schools help you understand the meaning of the verses and the overall message of the surah, which eases this process for you.


9. Motivate yourself to keep learning.

When you start to find learning the Quran so difficult remind yourself of the many rewards of learning the Quran. you will be among the best people like our beloved prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, you will come closer to Allah, you will be rewarded for every letter you read, and more. When you remind yourself of that you will be encouraged to keep going. Donโ€™t worry, the Quran school will aid you with that and your teacher will encourage you to keep going.

ย 10. Feel Free to Ask for help.

When learning Quran tajweed or trying to memorize its verses you will face some challenges and thatโ€™s normal, just ask your teacher to help you, and donโ€™t be shy. Your teacher is there to help you, thatโ€™s what you need to keep in mind.
