15 FREE Qur'an Resources for Homeschooling - Ihsaan Home Academy

As Muslims, learning to read and understand the Qur'an is a very important aspect of our Deen (way of life). It's crucial for Muslim home educators to make learning the Qur'an the center of education. The Qur'an is full of wisdom, lessons, miracles, stories, and many more. One ayah (verse) alone can be enough to cover a whole lesson; that's how deep it can get. There's more to learning the Qur'an than simply reciting it. There's Tajweed (the way it is recited), Tafseer (the explanation of the ayaat), the implementation of what was learned, and more. As a home educator, it is possible to learn and teach the Qur'an to your children/students as best as you can, but of course it possible, it would always be much better to get a teacher with qualifications.

Here are few resources that may help you in shaa Allah:
