Mothers Play Major Role in Quranic Education, Tanzanian Activist Says


Speaking to the Global Association of Muslim Women, Shamim Khan said in teaching the Quran to children, it is important that Quran interpretation be read to children so that they learn the sublime teachings of the Holy Book as well as memorizing it.

Parents ought to observe the principles of Islamic ethics and make efforts to be good role models for their children, she added.
