Alhamdu Lillah, with Al-Qari, the tradition of learning and teaching the Quran has entered the computer age.
Quran Learning in History: Through out the history, Masjid, maktab, and homes have been the places where billions of Muslims have learned the Quran in its language of revelation—Arabic, be it in Timbuktu in Africa, Sarajevo in Europe, Turpan in China, or Brisbane in Australia.
Muslims in America: North America is no different. Muslims in America also learn to read the Quran in Masjids and homes. However, they face a unique challenge. More than 90% of the Muslim children here are unable to attend any Masjid. Their parents either do not have enough time to teach or they themselves do not know how to read the Quran.
About 40% of Muslims in America are nonimmigrant Muslims. They also want to learn to read the Quran in Arabic. Even a large number of those Muslims who know how to read the Quran, would also like to be proficient in the art of recitation.
Goals of Al-Qari:
The Goals of Al-Qari program is as follows:
Make Quran learning as easy and as fast as possible.
To teach how to read the Quran even if you do not know a single letter of Arabic.
To teach how to recite the Quran in the best possible way.
To teach the basics of the art of tajweed.
Learning tajweed requires a good teacher. It may not be easy, however, to find such an expert. Al-Qari, although does not liberate you from the need of a good teacher, is a good substitute.
