The right Quran Teacher is the person who gained enough knowledge and holding Ijazah to be able to teach Quran.
According to a Sahih Hadith, the best amongst us Muslims is the person who learns Quran and then teaches it. We can well imagine the status of a Quran teacher after going through this hadith. Have you ever wondered why a Quran teacher has been given such importance?
A Quran tutor is someone who teaches you how to read and recite the Quran. And when we mean recitation of the Quran, it means the correct recitation of the Quran; teaching you all the Makharij and the rules of Tajweed. A Quran teacher should be able to instill the love of the Book of Allah in your heart, so that when you recite it, each and every word should reach out to your heart. Ideally, A Quran tutor should be qualified and experienced to teach you the translation of the Quran. So that, whatever you read, you can understand it, too. This is particularly important as without implementing the rules of the Quran in our daily lives, we cannot achieve anything; failure in this life and hereafter, too.
Another great importance of a Quran teacher should be that he/she is able to teach adults as well as children. Both require different handling as far as teaching is concerned. The teacher should be an easy-going person, whom students of every age can communicate with. The Quran teacher should be a role model for his/her students. But, the question is, where can we find such a Quran teacher? Your mosque or any other Islamic institute in your vicinity should probably have a well versed qualified Quran tutor. Sometimes, unfortunately, this is not the case. However, the introduction of online classes of Quran has solved problems for many people. Now, the knowledge of Allah’s Book is within reach for all. We just need to grab hold of it.
