Quran Learning in History
Our beloved Prophet Muhammad(P.B.U.H) started to teach Quran. Traditionally the method of teaching Quran revolved around a teacher and rest of persons studied from the teacher. Hazrat Muhammad(P.B.U.H.) was the first preacher of Quran and His companions were the first students. It was the duty of Hazrat Muhammad’s (P.B.U.H) companions to teach the Holy Quran further to those who weren’t been able to attend the Prophet’s training sessions. So, this chain continued and the Companions started to teach Holly Quran. The next generation was taught by their previous generation and so on.
Later on, the teaching of the Quran was associated with the mosques and there was a proper environment to teach and research on the book.
So far the Quran is associated with the mosques if you want to learn the holy Quran you are required to go to the mosque. Since then we are following the same tradition we send our children to the mosque to learn the Quran. As time passed on it becomes an essential part of our lives to send our child to the tutors in the mosque to read and learn Quran. This is the reason mosque is the most convenient way to read and learn Quran.
