FEATURES

Putting this out in public was a scary process because we are not scholars. Our background includes the study of Child Psychology, Journal Therapy, Quran and Hadith Studies. Currently, we are at the end of our Advanced Arabic (Al-Ajurrumiyyah) and Islamic Psychology degrees. But, by the end of the day, we are just mothers who wanted our kids to form a lifelong relationship with the Qur’an. We wanted their Qur’anic study in one book only. Teaching elder children and opening multiple books around toddlers or babies was becoming a struggle. Hence we compiled all the resources we were using into one book with a dash of colour to appeal to the kids. We designed this for our children mainly out of dire need, but seeing a vast public interest, we asked for help around so everyone could benefit the way we did (or more). We are grateful for the support of renowned scholar – Sheikh Saalim Al Azhari in terms of reviewing and improving the content. His detailed introduction can be read at the end of this Juz Journal. May Allah reward him immensely. It wouldn’t have been possible without his help. 

☆ BIG Arabic Text

So it’s easier for kids to read the text when they shift from Qaida to the Quran.

☆ Colour-coded tajweed

Tajweed is the set of rules governing the way in which the words of the Quran should be pronounced during its recitation. Tajweed not only brings beauty in the recitation but also helps us recite the Quran the way it was recited by Prophet Muhammad ﷺ. Here are some of the basic rules highlighted in this book.

☆ Colourful word for word meaning

The aim of the word-for-word meaning is to enable a non-Arab reader to understand the Qur’an as well as to improve his/her knowledge of Arabic, particularly the Qur’anic Arabic. It is important to remember that any translation into another language can never be completely accurate. Similarly, many words in the Arabic language can carry a number of meanings depending on their context. So for each word, only the most common or relevant meaning is given in this book. The 3 volume work of Muhammad Mohar Ali along with Arabic dictionaries (as mentioned in the exercise section) have been used as a reference for the word for word meanings, simplified by Sheikh Saalim Al Azhari so the kids can understand easily in shaa Allah. Studying the Arabic language in detail is still recommended for a better understanding of the Qur’an.

☆ Easy translation

A translation of the meanings of the Qur’an is not considered to be Qur’an. Rather it is like a tafseer (commentary) of the Qur’an which explains the meanings and assists in understanding. When one reads a translation of the Qur’an, they are reading the translator’s interpretation of the original Arabic. This does not aim to introduce any new translation of the text. English translation of Dr. Muhammad Muhsin Khan which was published by King Fahd Printing Complex in Madinah, Saudi Arabia in 1996 (and approved by the University of Madinah, KSA) along with Saheeh International translation (compiled by three women and published by dar Abul Qasim, Saudi Arabia) and Tafsir Ibn Kathir have been used as references for this book in an effort to minimise the number of books you may have to open to teach the child about Allah’s words before they are grown up to absorb more knowledge and study Qur’an in-depth in shaa Allah (See references). Some parts are simplified for kids by Sheikh Saalim Al Azhari. A child may still need the help of an adult, depending on their age. This will also help you learn with the child in shaa Allah.

☆ Mini Tafseer

Tafseer means explanation, interpretation, context or commentary of the Qur’an for a clear understanding of Allah’s words. There is a mini Tafseer of each Surah before its start to give the introduction of the Surah along with its place of revelation and number of Aayaat. If it is revealed before Hijrah (migration for the sake of Allah), it is tagged as Makki Surah and if it is revealed after Hijrah, it is tagged as Madani Surah. Interpretation of the Qur’an through ahadith is the best way to approach the tafseer because it leaves little room for doubt. This is why introductions are short and are mainly described with the help of sahih ahadith (all of them can be cross-checked from sunnah.com for ease). Each Surah introduction has still been rechecked by Sheikh Saalim Al Azhari, whose detailed biography can be read at the end of the book.

☆ Hifdh/Qiraa’at tracker (also tracks understanding milestones etc.)

The Qur’an tracker has 5 sections before each Surah to help you track the child’s recitation, understanding, reflection, memorisation and application of knowledge. You can track the complete Surah and also track it Aayah by Aayah. Each Arabic and English translation ends with a dotted tick mark which you can fill in and write a date on for tracking the child’s qiraa’at (recitation), tafseer (understanding), or hifdh (memorisation) journey.

☆ Exercise section

Only 4 words are chosen out of each Surah to expand Arabic vocabulary one by one. These are the following sub-sections on the exercise page:

Root letters: Arabic letters that provide the basic meaning of a word are called “roots”. They are joined with other letters to form different words which have related meanings. A root usually consists of 3 letters (sometimes 4), which convey a basic idea. Changing the order of root letters changes the meaning of the word too. For eg: = knowledge and = deed.
Dictionary: This will help you explain the depth of Arabic language to the child – how it is so precise yet so vast. For this section, the following Arabic to English dictionaries have been referred to:
The Hans Wehr Dictionary of Modern Written Arabic 4th edition, Arabic-English Lexicon by Edward William Lane, Dictionary and Glossary of the Quran by John Penrice, Vocabulary of the Holy Quran by Dr. Nadwi.


Elsewhere in the Quran: This highlights how many times the related word has come in the Qur’an and in what form. This means that whenever and wherever it will come in the Qur’an again, you will probably know its basic meaning if you memorise it once.
Writing practice: This may help the children familiarise themselves with the Arabic language through writing.

☆ Reflection section / Quran Journaling

The Qur’an Journaling / Reflection Section has been given because the purpose of reading and memorising the Qur’an is to reflect upon it and apply it in our lives. If you’re using it with a young child, please make sure that you supervise them and help them understand how to respect the words of Allah. They may experiment with different materials and use
creative design on the given page to embed their learning, but they should avoid illustrating the Qur’an with animate beings or the world of unseen (Allah, Prophets, Angels, Satan, Hell, Heaven, etc.).

☆ Certificate / Motivational Ahadith

The certificate at the end of the Juz is to encourage a child to keep going forward in their journey towards the completion of Qur’an. You can either use it for memorisation or recitation milestone by writing the child’s name in the middle strip. You can also use the inspiring ahadith about Qur’an, spread across the whole Juz, to develop self-motivation among kids.

  1. Assalamu Alaykum wrb

    How can i purchase the juz journal? Im from South Africa and i see suhayla does not stock them.

    Jazaakillaahu Khayran

    • walaikum assalam wr wb. I hope sister Anila in the list of Canadian stockists is able to help you! Her email id is given in the list! (the other retailer is out of stock). Hope that helps!

    • walaikum assalam sis. Please check with solehgeneration or little tree library in Indonesia (their links are given in the post). They will soon have them in stock in shaa Allah. BarrakAllahu lakum!

  2. Salam I’m in uk.i want to know what surah are covered in jazz amah journal plz
    (I am so glad you have made it so easy for us muslim mums n kids jazakallah )

  3. We received ours and its what I have wanted for years. Up until now I have to reference 3 to 4 different sources to review tafseer and meanings of key words in each surah. Now I have access to 1 Juz Amma Journal which gives me the tafseer and the breakdown of each word: what a difference this makes for memorisation and pattern recognition for mutashabiha ayahs. Build on arabic language by learning the meaning of the words in each ayah: this works great for Juz Amma where the surah are shorter and more frequently prayed in Salaah. As adults we are also accessing the book by testing our knowledge of the meanings of words, reflecting on surah themes and building our confidence in quranic arabic. Once again a well planned resource from Ayeina. I pray they are rewarded abundantly for their efforts and time serving the ummah with such productive children’s learning material.

  4. Hi
    where can I order this in USA. I looked in the HappyStreet but they are all sold out. Do you have a digital version of this available for purchase.

    • We don’t have a digital version of this, but please check with @thebarakahboutique or @imajannation.emporium in USA. They may still have them in stock. I updated the above article too with links! May Allah put barakah in your purchase!
