At what age do you recommend to put children in full time hips or memorization?

00:00:08--> 00:00:50

my plea to the parents who are answering and asking this question Watching. Please understand memorization is not for everyone, and leaning upon our children in order for them to fulfill our dreams is very difficult. With that being said, the best time to introduce your child into full time memorization is after a rigorous vetting process in their childhood in their toddler age. Have you introduced them to the original sounds of Quran? The primordial sounds in their young age? Have they learned to read Koran? Have they finished the recitation of the Quran half a dozen times? Are they comfortable writing the book of Allah? Are they comfortable with a minimum of 200 vocabulary words?

00:00:50--> 00:01:30

Do they read the Quran or turn through it once a month? Do they feel happy and have a favorite reciter? Do they find that they are most happy, they have pride in it? These are all at single checklist. And if you have not have checks to all of these, speak to your child. Lastly, what is a good age to put your child into full time memorization when your child and you have communicated whether that age is seven or 10? To me, that would be a bit young. Whenever your child is ready, you will have communicated and they will know Yes, Mom and Dad, I'm going to memorize because this will lead to my paradise and a child will understand paradise. Lastly, for those of you scratching at

00:01:30--> 00:02:15

your phone or your pad saying just give me a number. I would not recommend full time memorization be understood without the idea of dorming or not. dorming be very aware in a dorming situation that the memorization environment is different, and I believe you should consult your local Imam. As far as the general full time my kid goes and comes back from school. This can begin from the age of seven, and even before seven but understand between the age of seven and 10. Your child should be involved in reading Quran I didn't stutter reading or on stop forcing your kid to memorize that which they cannot hold, which they don't have a responsibility for best age is when your child is equipped with

00:02:15--> 00:02:25

all the things that I gave, and when he has communicated and she has communicated to you I'm ready to go nowhere before 10 should your child be pressed into such a large responsibility.
