A Time to Learn

Today is Fourth of July. A happy day to you.

Son with his wife and baby M has gone to Galveston. They did their level best to take me along. I refused. I have been so many times there, I didn’t feel like going. D in law enjoys fireworks. It doesn’t matter if she has seen them previously. She likes them immensely.

Monday is my day of Tajweed. My teacher, and I connect through Zoom. I have asked my teacher to allow me to watch when she is with the other students. This way I’m constantly revising what I have learnt earlier. Today I wished I wasn’t online. One of the new student was very rude.

We are on camera, when we (the students) are reciting our lessons. This way the teacher see the way we pronounce the words, and she corrects us. The new one didn’t want the camera. She insisted on no camera. The teacher corrected her on a word, to which she said she was going to say the word as she was taught by her previous teacher.

Our teacher tried to explain to her that since her way , and the student’s earlier teacher differed, it would be best if she continued with her previous teacher. The student was adamant that she won’t go back, but she would continue the way she was reciting. It was an ugly confrontation, and I felt terrible watching it.

No one is perfect, and learning never stops. Your life ends, but learning goes on.

  1. MASHA ALLAH for you on doing Tajweed. This is really good.
    That rude student is probably unable to understand the basic fact that he/she is a student and the teacher on the other end is the one who will guide him/her to perform Tajweed in the rightful manner.

    1. Shukr Alhumdulillah! I’m so happy to learn Tajweed. In the beginning it looked an uphill task. Do you know how difficult it’s to pronounce Ain in the beginning? My teacher is praise worthy. I have come a long way, and I’m still trudging.
