TJ main Quraan Resources have moved!

In order to decongest things over at TJ Islamic Studies, I have separated out the Quraan resources and placed at a new location: TJ Quraan.

The Quraan resources ARE NO LONGER available at TJ Islamic Studies. Please update any bookmarks/links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but I think it will work out better for visitors and myself.

Ten Ayaat of Baqarah to Keep Shaytaan Away

To help us to correctly recite the 10 ayaat of Suratul Baqarah to keep Shaytaan away, I made up a little PowerPoint with audio. I have the kids listen, read, and recite it daily.

You can download it from TJ Islamic Studies here

and here is a PDF I previously made of the text of the ten ayaat as well as the English translation:

Can you think of others to add to the list? 


In “Essential Lessons for Muslims,” I believe it lists that it is important to learn at least Surahs 99-114 (and Fatihah of course).  Of course memorization of the whole Quraan is the ultimate goal, but if you struggle in that area then this may at least be a smaller goal to work toward in the beginning.

Reciting Suratal Baqarah

I’ve started reading the tafsir for Suratul Baqarah, and was reading about some of its merits and the merit of reciting it daily in the house. So I put together a little PDF to help us remember to recite it daily and what to recite (from the tafsir, there are 10 ayaat that you should read daily to keep Shaytaan away.)

I’ve compiled those ten ayaat into the PDF as well.
