This is third hadith in the small pocket book entitled AMALAN ANAK SALIH : Himpunan dan Terjemahan Baharuddin Ayudin. The book has collection of hadiths that children can reflect upon.
For the previous two hadith, do refer under the book section. I would appreciate if you can put in inputs on how do you reflect the hadith with your children.
عَنْ عُثْمَانَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ، عَنِ النَّبَيِّ قَالَ : خَيْرُكُمْ مَنْ تَعَلَّمَ القُرْآنَ وعَلَّمَهُ
Rasullullah s.a.w. bersabda :”Sebaik-baik kamu adalah orang yang mempelajari Al Quran dan mengajarkannya”
Volume 6, Book 61, Number 545:
Book of the Virtues of the Quran
Narrated ‘Uthman r.a.:
The Prophet said, “The best among you (Muslims) are those who learn the Qur’an and teach it.”
H and I discussed to review where he is now in learning the Quran. I feel now we need to set objective and direction to how we go about in learning the Quran. the goal is so that he can teach.
I told him the least that you can teach are your own children.
We made a rough chart of progresses of learning the quran
Learning the letters
Knowing the meaning
Even in each progress there are sub progress you can make. Like for instance reciting can be divided according to the juzuks that he have read.
I would like to highlight on the fluency. It can be subjective though.
Memorisation can be made into charts so he can watch the number of surahs to go. Haziq is trying to memorise the Juzuk Amma. May Allah make it easy for him and May Allah allow him to retain his memory.
We could make a countdown of surahs to go. Having the surahs laid out in front can be a motivation.
S wants one too. Might as well I make one for Z.

The understanding of meaning part, I will try to share as much as I can with the kids. However I urge him, that this is the knowledge he needs to seek. I can only give him the surface of the meaning. The in depth, he needs to learn from the learned people. I pray that Allah guides my children to people who follow His straight path.
The children still has a long way to go but, Insya Allah we will work together so that they would have the spirit to spread the ilmu.
