In London, we used to teach kids Iqra' by ourselves. We could always find time to teach though the reality was it's not easy teaching your own kids.
Now we have surrendered. We are very busy during day time and by the time night comes we just want to sleep. We feel like Malaysia's night time seems shorter than UK's. Hihi :D
Hence to solve the problem is to send the kids to iqra' class! ;)
Last week on wednesday, we had registered the kids at Intelligent Quranic Kids. Yes, Zafri too! He was doing fine on the first time. But on the next day, he cried so the teacher called us up to take him home. :D
The reason he cried was because the teacher took away and kept his toy cars. hihi. We already told him that any toys are not allowed to bring but he insisted to take with him. ayoo this boy is definitely cannot separate with his cars at all. To cut short, he's learnt. ;)
So he did not bring his toy cars on the third day..and he's doing fine for the whole 1 hour and half class. Masya Allah! After all, her sisters are there too so he's not that scared.
actually on the first day, we came a little bit earlier to fetch them. Suddenly Zafri saw us! Guess what?? "Ha, Mummy dah datang!' He said outloud! Hihihi He's praying with everybody else at that time! Huhu I was like 'alamak..kantoi!' And i'd heard that the ustaz said 'ok..Zafri habiskan solat dulu ye'. :D
What i heard, the teacher aka the founder referred as nenek to the kids and mak cik to the parents is so motherly. I instantly like her when we met first time :). The two ustazs are also nice and patient according to the kids. Zahin kata tak marah pon klu Zafri main2 kt class hihi.
after the iqra' session, all the kids will perform Isya' prayer first under ustaz's supervision before going home. Also sometimes the ustaz will give an usrah about our Prophets' life which is a bonus.
By the way it takes only 2 minutes driving from our house to the class. The fee is only RM20 per kid per month and the class is held 3x in a week which are on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday night from 8pm to 930pm. Not bad! Mummy and Babah can go dating now yay! ;P
Alhamdulillah we have finally solved the problem. Though Iris had to start with Iqra' 1 again (kes lupa) same with Zafri but she's fine with it. Zahin is at Iqra' 5 now. Hopefully, they will be steadfast and finish Iqra' soon. Ameen!
