How do I love my little one in the Quran?
One mother of a 5-month-old baby says, how can I get him used to the Qur’an and love him in it and at what age can he start memorizing the Qur’an?
We say may Allah reward you for your keenness to make your little one’s heart full of the Qur’an and faith, and the Qur’an does not have a specific age, it is possible to start with the child while he is a fetus before he is born.
Hearing the Qur’an by a pregnant mother affects and is affected by her fetus and is associated with this sound and memorize it faster than others.
The Qur’an can also be played in the voice of a well-versed reciter such as Sheikh Al-Husari and recited to the child’s ears.
As well as reading the Qur’an in front of the child all the time.
When he is four or five years old, he can be attached to one of the Holy Quran memorization houses.
