Teachings of the Qur'an (textbooks and workbooks), Volumes I, II, III, represent the first systematic attempt to present the teachings of the Qur'an for elementary level children at their own level of understanding. The final textbook in our Teaching of the Qur'an series, volume 3 is separated into three sections: the Human Community, the Muslim Community, and Social Action.
Each lesson begins with a Qur'anic verse (ayah), which has been selected to expound a message on the topic of the given lesson. The message contained within the ayah is elucidated in short and simple sentences. An extensive glossary is provided at the end of the book. The workbook provides interesting and thought-provoking exercises in comprehension, vocabulary development, and critical thinking. Each lesson starts with a selected 'Ayah which gives the basic message of the Qur'an as covered in that lesson.
It follows with transliteration, translation, and explanation. The seven lessons appearing in the first section deal with the meaning of Akhlaq, its sources and foundation, as well as the personal, family, and social responsibilities of a Muslim. Obligations towards parents are discussed comprehensively.
Sections II and III deal with right actions; such as kind deeds, justice, trust, sadaqah, self-sacrifice… etc. Also dealt with are unethical actions, such as mischief, making fun of others, duplicity, etc. Each lesson begins with a quote from the Qur'an and this textbook may be used at the upper elementary level.
Each lesson is concluded with a summary of important points and a list of difficult words. The lesson is concluded with an appropriate selection of an 'Ayah or Haddith, which further explains the message of the lesson.
