a. I wanted guidance of what to teach, as inshallah I am opening an educational program for the ladies as none of them know how to recite the Quraan, also rulings and etiquettes concerning purity and other basics. I need a proper schedule I will be doing 2 hrs with them everyday. b. I want to teach little kids Urdu and Arabic on Saturdays, many people have said they will come. I do know both languages a little bit but not too fully have you got any books (like a curriculum) that I could teach of. Remember it's for beginners. c. i am not quite sure how to start a career into doing teaching of Islamic studies for younger children. What are the stages required to build up this?


May Allah bless you with piety (Taqwa) and purity, strong emaan, forgiveness of sins, have mercy on you, elevate your status, bless you with knowledge of Deen and generosity. Ameen!

InshaAllah, for the beginner's class, you may devote some time for Taleem - reading a book of Fazail like 'Muntakhab Ahadith', then make small Halaqas for learning Quran recitation. Then you may have a session on Basics of Islam, customized separately for groups of children, sisters or elders. You may end the class by reciting Dua and give reading/writing/memorizing homework to students. Once they learn a topic, you may have short question-answer session (Quiz) and give small prizes to encourage their learning competition. Make special Dua for all your students after prayers.

The following articles and booklets will inshaAllah help you teach the basics of Islam. If a book is not available in English, Urdu or desired language, you may contact your local bookstore for a printed book.
