Introduction to the Lessons

We started our first week of the Quran classes and over the next few months, I would be sending in brief overview of what we discussed and the homework for the week. For the first week, we discussed the following:

1. An introduction to the Makharij of all the letters.
2. Light letters and its difference with the heavy letters.
3. The heavy letters are: خ ص ض غ ط ق ظ

For the message of the Quran, we discussed the story of Iblis and the result of his disobedience with Allah’s command. This is an interactive discussion where the kids are explained in simple terms the Quranic stories and they reflect its messages in their everyday lives and ask questions.

For homework, this week I will request the following:

2. Listen carefully to the correct recitation of these letters by listening to Al-Husary at least five times
3. Send in the recitation of Surah Ikhlas on Monday, Surah Falaq on Tuesday, Surah Nas on Wednesday
4. Print the last page of the Quran attached here and circle all the heavy letters on this page. Send me a picture of this by Wednesday
