Interviewer: Salam alaikum, dear sister! I hope you are well, InshaAllah. Please introduce your daughter.
Nailah’s Mother: Wa alaikum salam, sister, thank you. My daughter’s name is Nailah Qiyyama Khatun Hakim. She was born on December 12, 2011, in Barcelona, Spain, and she is 12 years old.
Interviewer: When did Nailah start learning the Holy Quran?
Nailah’s Mother: In 2020, during the COVID-19 pandemic, Nailah’s father started teaching her Arabic so that she could read the Quran, and within two months, she started reading it.
Interviewer: What was her main motivation for learning to read the Holy Quran?
Nailah’s Mother: We were her main motivation—her father and me. Thanks to Allah (SWT), we were born into a Muslim family, and so was she. Therefore, as parents, we have to inform her, motivate her, and provide her with all the tools to learn, understand, and practice her religion.
Interviewer: Do you and your husband know Arabic or the Holy Quran?
Nailah’s Mother: My husband and I can read Arabic to read the Holy Quran, just like Nailah. We were not converts to Islam, but thanks to Allah (SWT), we were born into a Muslim family.
Interviewer: What courses has Nailah taken, and how many Quranic certifications does she have now?
Nailah’s Mother: As I mentioned, we taught her and then enrolled her in DarulQuran to learn to read with melody. So, I first enrolled her in Tahqiq and Tajweed, and now she is doing Tarteel and Juz Amma Memorisation, and she has achieved certificates in these courses, Alhamdulillah. This is her recitation of Sura An-Nur (24: 35-40) even though my doughter had a cold.
Nailah’s unwavering dedication, nurtured by her parents and the supportive environment at DarulQuran Academy, exemplifies the transformative power of Quranic education.
We invite you to reflect on the profound impact of faith-based learning and the positive influence it has on young minds. We hope her story becomes a beacon of inspiration, encouraging everyone to embrace the enriching experiences offered by DarulQuran.
It is important to note that Nailah has registered for the International Quran Competition scheduled for 2024 in the Islamic Republic of Iran.
We celebrate Nailah’s achievements, wish her success in this journey, and extend our best wishes for her parents who have supported her to this level.
We look forward to sharing more empowering narratives and uplifting journeys with our community. Thank you for being part of this incredible exploration into the world of Quranic education at DarulQuran Academy.
