“O Ye who believe! Ward off yourselves and your families against a Fire (Hell) whose fuel is men and stones, over which are (appointed) angels stern (and) severe, who disobey not, (from executing) the Commands they receive from Allah, but do that which they are commanded”
[Quran Surah Al-Tahreem 66:6]
The phrase “and your families against a Fire” according to the great scholar Imam al-Tabari, means, to teach your families to do acts of obedience to Allah (SWT) so that they may protect themselves from the Fire. What most people don’t realize is that every Muslim is a propagator (daaiyah) who calls people to Allah (SWT) and the first people that should be called to Allah (SWT) by any person is his or her own family and those closest to them. The upbringing of children is one of the important aspects of that child’s life and reflects in his or her later life. The Prophet Muhammad (SAW) encouraged that children be brought up with Islamic understanding from a younger age. The Prophet (SAW) said, “Teach your children to pray when they are seven years old, and smack them (lightly) if they do not do so when they are ten, and separate them in their beds” (Abu Dawood, 495). The basic understanding of the religion comes from the Quran and there are many online Quran tutor and teachers across the world that provide their services for online Quran classes for kids at home where children of all ages and races can learn Quran at home. Not only can the children learn Quran at home from these online Quran tutor and teacher but adults too, especially in western nations where there are not so many Islamic schools and teachers, enroll in Quran online classes under their guidance. Online Quran classes for kids at home have become widely popular around the world due to a number of reasons of which the primary being the one on one interaction with the teacher and the facility for the child to learn about the religion of Islam from a comfortable place.
