I have previously posted questions for each day's juz of Qur'aan during Ramadhaan. I didn't, however, find time to post answers to them all. Al hamdul'Illah for that, as Allah has saved both you readers and me. We have been using the Sahih International English translation of the Qur'aan for our children this past few years, due to it's ease of reading. However, my husband's friend and colleague is just embarking on a PhD dissertation on the mistakes in that translation of the Qur'aan...maashaa Allah. It was done by an American revert sister, who made a very good attempt but missed some key grammatical points that change the meanings This is a good reminder for us all that just because something is published in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia and has been checked by certain institutions, doesn't mean it is completely correct or free of mistakes. May Allah guide and protect us all - ameen!
As for the questions I posted, most certainly you can use the questions and find the answers in The Noble Qur'an by Hilali-Khan, inshaa Allah. However, I will not post the answers from the Sahih International translation. I will edit the posts, replacing the reference to the most unanimously approved Hilali-Khan translation, inshaa Allah.
As for the Ramadhaan program this year, we will be at our farm, Healing Earth, bi idhn Illah ta'ala. We should have another family with us for much of the summer, so al hamdul'Illah this will be our first year of including others in our lessons.
As many of you are aware, Ramadhaan is a very intense month for us, where we focus the majority of our time on ibaadah in its different forms. This year we will be covering the following: bi idhn Illah, ta'ala.
- Reading the Qur'aan tranlation in English - one juz per day (for each individually) with a few questions to be answered on the daily juz.
- Reading the Qur'aan in Arabic - one juz per day (for those who can do so) and for the younger members of the family then a goal such as reading Surat-ul-Baqarah and the last two or three ajzaa.
- Lessons read each day from Shk Uthaymeen's Daily Sittings for Ramadhaan.
- Lessons read each day from Ramadhaan 2011 Bitesize Articles
- Fasting from Alif to Ya for the younger children
