Juz Tabaarak Journal (Color coded Tajweed for Kids)
The aim of #juzjournals is to enable a child to understand the Quran and form a deeper connection with Allah as a result. This book bridges that gap by providing the kids a comprehensive colourful tool to improve their knowledge of Arabic, reflect upon the book of Allah, and apply it in their lives in shaa Allah. The idea is to instil the love of Allah’s book in their hearts so they can turn to it in their times of joy and grief. It not only helps the parent/teacher track a child’s complete Surah (recitation, memorisation, or understanding of the Qur’an) but also helps track their progress Aayah by Aayah.
SURAH MULK (67) – SURAH MURSALAT (77) : In the 29th Juz of the Quran, the main theme is Allah’s Supreme Power and Authority, our obedience and submission, difference between the truth and falsehood, encouragement towards steadfastness upon the right path, and strong consequences for those who choose the wrong path. The focus is on strengthening our faith. The Aayaat are poetic and deep in their meaning – helping us ponder and reflect. A characteristic of the earliest Surahs of the Makkan period is that they present the entire teachings of Islam briefly, so that they are understood easily. The Makkan period was a time when Islam (for the pagan Arabs) was a strange message of submission to an unseen God – a threat to the city’s future (because they used to set up idols of different religions around the Ka’bah in order to welcome international trade). Therefore, the Surahs in this Juz focus on spirituality and strengthening the belief of the oppressed community (Muslims at that time). They provide warnings of the Hellfire and the Day of Judgement to warn the oppressors and wrongdoers.

May Allah reward Sheikh Saalim Alazhari and Abu Bakr Zoud for rechecking and adding so much value to these journals. It wouldn’t have been possible without their help and expertise.
