It is obligatory upon Muslims to Learn to Read Quran and, to teach it to others. When a Muslim teaches Quran to others he, or she, is greatly rewarded for it. There are Muslims who practice their religion – or Deen (a complete way of life) as it is called in Islam – and those who don’t. Those who practice their religion Learn to Read The Quran, recite it regularly, and if they have children, they also teach them how to read Quran.
In Muslim majority countries – at least those which are not ashamed to call themselves Muslim countries and do not put curbs on practicing Islam – learning the Quran is fairly easy. As a general rule, Muslim countries have a Masjid (Mosque) in almost every other street, and every Masjid has a few Huffaz (plural of Hafiz = a person who has memorized the entire Quran) who are willing to teach others to read Quran, either free of charge, or for a small fee. It is standard practice to hire these Huffaz to visit homes in the afternoon, when children have finished their home assignments from school, and teach them How to Read the Quran.
Many Muslims want their children to become Huffaz. Muslim boys in Muslim countries take lessons in Quran memorization from a Quran tutor, usually a Hafiz himself, at the local Masjid, while girls who want to become Huffaz take lessons in Quran memorization from a Hafizah in their neighborhood, or at the local Islamic school for girls. With Allaah’s blessings, such schools are increasing in number day by day.
But Muslims who are living in non-Muslim countries do face several problems when they decide to learn Quran themselves, or when they set out to find a Quran Tutor for their children. There are far fewer Masajid (plural of Masjid) in non-Muslim countries, and even fewer Madrassahs (seminaries), and hence, far fewer Quran tutors are produced and are available at the existing Masajid. On the other hand, distances are great, and time is at a premium in non-Muslim Western countries as most grown up members of a family are working at one or more jobs and there is usually no one available to drop the children off at a Masjid for Quran lessons and then pick them up and bring them back home again.
