Asalamu’alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatu ladies,
it’s been a short while since I’ve posted. I hope you’re all well. You might know that this year of homeschooling was rather a strange one; we had something crop up and so our homeschool just went full-on autopilot. Alhamdulillah, we’re now back to our usual homeschool routine and I took some time to regroup, adjust and make sure that our routines were working and not overwhelming me. But more on how we adjusted and restarted this homeschool year in another post insha’Allah.
And I know just how much mothers whose children are memorising Qur’an have to be committed and have a schedule that’s WORKS WELL. For any child to memorise Qur’an it’s crucial that parents play an active role in ensuring that children keep encouraged, revise daily and memorise well. But often we don’t organise our child Qur’an lessons the way we do other subjects though it is most deserved!
So here is a simple yet effective way to organise, but equally, encourage your child on their hifdh journey, as well as have a wonderful physical memory to look back on as well insha’Allah. This binder isn’t intended for going into depth with Islamic studies hence there are not notebooking pages for tafseer etc though you could absolutely slot them in. It is more of a means to organise your child hifdh, and also record snippets of their wonderful commitment. It is simple, but sometimes it is the simple systems that make the biggest difference wouldn’t you agree? The binders can both be used at home, and also at madrassa so you as a parent know what your child is focusing on for the week.
This 14-page binder contains
A front cover
A page for your child to record when their hifdh journey began, why they want to memorise and some habits they may need to instil to memorise (this can be used both for kids who are just starting as well as those who have already begun on their hifdh)
A weekly hifdh and muraja’ah schedule so both you and your child can feel prepared! I would suggest laminating this so you can wipe and reuse this weekly.
A page where kids can record milestones of finishing a juz; this will be wonderful to look back on insha’Allah.
Next, there is a complete list of suwar in the Qur’an which can be used two ways. This can be used to make notes about the surah the child is memorising; such as mistakes, ayaat they are getting confused with, etc. It can also be laminated and used for group revision so you can record which child needs to revise the surah; very handy!
A page to record when your child FINISHES their hifdh (insha’Allah); what better memory to record. You can also slot plain coloured paper throughout so kids can doodle or write about specific days, write your own surprise notes of encouragement, and have fun with it!
You can also add these colourful JUZ TRACKERS to allow your kids to visualise their smaller milestones; I have just released juz tracker charts for JUZ 21 and 22 this week which completes a set of ten Juz alhamdulillah (remaining juz trackers will be released in the near future insha’Allah). You can purchase the bundle of ten juz trackers below FOR JUST £5.99 (or separately here). Kids can either colour or add a sticker every time they finish memorising a surah, keeping up the momentum insha’Allah.
