Yet another story of Islamic values in action 🙂
Many many people recommend listening to a recitor when trying to learn a sura. The app mentioned earlier in the series does this too, but there is also an excellent website called tanzil.net .
The recommended recitors for little ones is Al-Husary (NOT Al-Husary Mujawwad), and a slightly faster paced on for older ones is Parhizgar.
Having recitation on while they are going to sleep/are sleeping is also highly recommended for it to seep into their souls 🙂
