Dear Brother,

It is encouraging to note the zeal to make your child a hafiz. May Allah make your child a hafiz.

At the outset, the personal supervision of a qualified teacher is vital to successfully become a hafiz. A qualified teacher is one that conducts himself according to the laws of shariah and is fluent and well versed in the recitation of the Qur’an. While finding a qualified teacher may be found online, the aspect of personal supervision is generally missing.Acquiring beneficial knowledge from a teacher does not occur by merely transmitting information. Rather, a student gains beneficial knowledge from a teacher by spending time in their company. The personal companionship of a teacher extends beyond receiving instruction. This companionship is attained by merely sitting in the presence of a teacher. By learning online, one would not be able to attain these benefits. Hence, we would advise against completing your child’s hifz online, unless there is a dire need to do so.

We are not aware of any specific online hifz academies. However, if you are able find a teacher online that conducts himself according to the laws of shariah, and is an expert in the recitation of Qur’an, then you may enrol your son in those classes.


And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
