Dear brother Badar Habib (from Jacob Lines?) Please confirm :-)
It is very important for young children to learn reciting the Qur'an early. Generally, if that period is missed, it becomes more and more difficult for them to learn.
They should start trying to understand the Qur'an at age 12.
This is what we have done with our children.
I was waiting for some other member to address your question; sorry for the delay.
Please call me at 407-554-1544 if convenient. Will touch those wonderful times of Karachi :-)
