It's not always easy to learn Quran, especially when we're beyond the age of twelve. Well, learning anything can be challenging. Who said it was easy learning to walk? Or the first few years when we were learning to read- no, it wasn't very easy, but those who persevered reap the benefits today.
And yes it's also not easy to re learn the Quran, and especially memorize the Quran when you're already in your teens and beyond. So here's an ode to our persevering students.
Sometimes you don't see the reward or point of going on.. You've been on the same page or same surah for the past weeks.
And of course you don't see the invisible reward that Allah has prepared for those who recite the Quran in difficulty yet still persevere.
Alhamdulillah, congratulations to our teenage Iqra' student who has been consistent in coming thrice a week, and has now finished her Iqra' 4.
Alhamdulillah, congratulations to our specialist doctor who has finished revising juz 30, 29 and 28.. And has been strong to keep going on despite ustazah always asking her to repeat and perfect her memorization for juz 27.
Alhamdulillah, congratulations to our coaching on the go professional reverts class, who are making great progress in reading the Quran, alhamdulillah. One has already started reading the Quran, and the other two are already on Iqra' 2 and 3.
And alhamdulillah, congratulations to our professional executive student who has finished juz 30 and half of juz 1, yet has to keep persevering to perfect the half juz that she already has.
Yes, it's not easy, but may Allah give us the strength that we need, with the noble intention of becoming ahlul Qur'an! Ameen.
