In the English Noorani Qaida course, basic rules of reading the Quran are taught. They begin with the Arabic alphabet. After reading the Noorani Qaida online, the student is able to pronounce the Arabic letters correctly and read different letters and words together. The first step in learning to recite the Qur’an is to learn the rules taught in Noorani Qaida.
To be exact, kids Noorani Qaida course is created aiming at helping students recognize the letters of the Arabic language. It helps students recognize how the letters of the Arabic language are written separately and then how they are combined into different visual structures in the written form. This is a specific feature of the Arabic, Urdu and Persian languages. Writing Arabic letters in pairs changes their visual forms, so their identification is also necessary to understand the Qur’an.
And the third thing taught in Noorani Qaida is to make the students understand how the same letter can be read in many ways. The reason for this is that within the Arabic language, there can be many Harakats (signs) on each letter, and the change of Harakat (sign) that is marked over the letter, will result in a difference in the sound. It means the way in which the letter is pronounced. The reader has to stretch a letter by seeing a specific sign. Some signs require a reader to lower his voice, while other signs ask for a louder pitch. In order to understand such differences, it is very important to read the complete Noorani Qaida.
The kids Noorani Qaida is written in such a way that it makes it very easy to develop the ability to recite the Holy Qur’an and a student has no difficulty left in understanding the letters in Quran. Thus, through the teaching of Noorani Qaida online, the student not only develops the ability to read the Arabic letters separately and in combination, but also develops the ability to understand its specific signs.
And in the same way, if the basic tajweed is taught correctly and diligently, the student’s Arabic accent becomes excellent and very good. Therefore, before starting the Qur’an, it is very important to understand English Noorani Qaida and finish it once. On the contrary, those who find it hard to read the Quran fluently and have difficulty in understanding its letters and harakaat (signs), should also re-read the Qur’an by sacrificing some time and working on their Arabic fundamentals in the beginning. And believe me, whatever time you will spend correcting the Quran, it will not be wasted.
مَنْ قَرَأ حَرْفاً مِنْ كِتاب الله فَلَهُ حَسَنَة، والحَسَنَة بِعَشْرِ أمْثَالِها، لا أقول: ألم حَرفٌ، ولكِنْ: ألِفٌ حَرْفٌ، ولاَمٌ حَرْفٌ، ومِيمٌ حَرْفٌ
Whoever recites a letter from the Book of Allah will be credited with a good deed, and the good deed receives a ten-fold reward. I am not saying that “ألم” Alif-Lām-Mīm is one letter, but Alif is a letter, Lām is a letter and Mīm is a letter.

Course duration to learn Noorani Qaida for kids and adults is not specified. Because if the student, who reads Noorani Qaida online, is of an older age, then he learns faster. While if he is younger, it takes more time. However, a child around 10 years of age usually completes this course in 4 to 6 months and an adult student completes this course in an average of 2 to 4 months.
It is difficult to give a definitive opinion on the course duration because sometimes a student’s grip on Arabic language and vocabulary is better, and he can easily complete the course and finish all its lessons very quickly in a short span of time. Whereas, in contrast, some students have no experience of Arabic language and vocabulary, so they face a little more effort, but with hard work and dedication, such students can also complete this course in a short time. We have seen students with zero experience in the language completing this course within a short span of 3 months.
