Reading Quran for kids in an online setup is easy to start but requires some thoughtful analysis. In online setup, parents have a hard time to assess how much time will it take to complete the course. There are many factors which contribute and in this blog we will see.
First we need to know which course the student is enrolled. Lets focus on the Online Quran Class with Tajweed for now. If we break down this course this consist of three course work items:
The course start from understanding the basics which comes from the Qaida. Here are some quick facts about the Noorani Qaida which we normally teach our kids. Some of the facts mentioned here can be generalized for any other Quranic Qaida as well.
Every day the Quran tutor goes through a small portion of the Qaida till the kid master’s it. Note that at start the kid might take more than a week per page. Later the kid speeds up and covers more ground in less time.
With this in mind, logically speaking it should take 8 weeks to 32 weeks to complete the Qaida. This equates to 2 months to 8 months of duration. Well the above is more mathematical than what happens in reality. During the class the student is also taught the supplementary topics. These topics are Duas, hadith, prayer, kalimas etc. Lets follow 80/20 rule. Hence 80% of the time is spent on Qaida we roughly add one more month in this.
So now we are talking about finishing Qaida between 3 to 9 months.
One important factor which defines the period of Qaida completion is the number of classes completed per week. If done 3 days per week then then the duration will be around 4-10 months. If the duration is 5-6 days per week then the duration will be 3-9 months. The variation is based on how quickly your kid reads a page per session.
Once the Qaida is learn then comes the reading of Quran for Kids. This takes the greatest amount of time. Lets break it down. There are 6666 ayats in Quran, 114 surahs and 30 juz. Lets say a kid reads 10-20 ayats per day depending upon how good your kid’s understanding of Qaida is. With this it will take from 1 year to 1.8 years. Again this is all mathematical. If we factor in the supplementary topics as mentioned above then again 20% time is added. This means that reading Quran for kids finish in around 1.3 years to 2.2 years. Now this is based on 7 days per week class.
