Most parents today would like their children to be able to read Arabic first and foremost in order to read the Quran, and recite it properly. Although many parents would like their children to go a step further and understand it, or maybe even be able to speak the language, it is rare in our educational institutions that we see such a goal attained. This is a problem which needs to be remedied. While I don’t advocate waiting for an institution to come around with the long awaited program, I do suggest that you try your best to take matters into your own hands. We don’t want our children to just read the Quran but we want them to understand it. If possible we want them to speak the language as well. The first step in this process is going to be teaching your child to read. In order to help you with this we’ve started our “Teaching your child to read Arabic” series.
The idea of this series is to help you to get your child to read Arabic, in as short a time as possible, by yourself without the need of a special instructor that you can’t afford and really are not in need of. The series Insha’Allah will be put together so that the average person can follow its advice. You will not need to know Arabic to teach them, and we’ll walk you through the whole process. We will also give you all of the necessary material for free, as well as additional material to use after they are reading to continue their studies in the Arabic language. It costs absolutely nothing, outside of your sincerity, and hard work. If the parent works hard with the child they could learn the Arabic language together and in fact become study partners.
The series will consist of
1. Testing to see if your child is ready
2. Teaching the Arabic alphabet
3. Teaching the phonics of the alphabet
4. Teaching the harakaat and blending them together with the letters
5. We will be demonstrating how to use what we feel is the best Arabic reading program available.
Everything that we are going to demonstrate, we have full confidence in, as it is the exact process that we use to teach our children. We ask that Allah grant you success.
