Little children love writing and colouring. As mothers, we need to take advantage of this interest and use it to benefit the child. Let us start by using this as a medium to introduce them to the language of the Quraan Majeed, the language of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and the language of Jannat – “Arabic”.

Start with the Arabic alphabet and take it one letter at a time. Our child should continuously write out that letter until he is able to write it easily and clearly. If done correctly, this entire exercise will not only be fun and interesting for the child but will also enhance the child’s ability to easily recognize the letters of the Arabic alphabet.

With time we can move onto small, easy words and we will be greatly pleased to see that all of this will create a bond and love in the child’s heart for the Arabic language. This will insha-Allah ultimately embed the love of the Quraan Majeed in the child’s life, aameen!
