Advice for children to learn

Q: Please help me with any dua or wazifa to make the brain strong for reading, understanding and implementing.

1. My 4 year old kid is not learning anything at all and is very stubborn. I believe his mind is not towards studying. Please suggest a wazifa to sharpen his brain to study well.

2. For myself, I am 36 years old and I want an upgrade in my career and want to learn some courses. Please suggest a wazifa so that I can also concentrate on my studies as my brain is also not sharp in studies.


1. Don't insist on the child learning at this age. Formal studies is recommended after the age of 6. At this stage it will be better that you show good mannerisms and values in the presence of the child, love and respect and occasionally you may put on recordings of the Quraan recitation. It should not be the style of big qaris, but the qiraat that is meant for teaching, such as Qari Minshawi and Shaikh Husri. At this age his mind is very receptive and he picks up whatever he hears and sees.

2. The best is to be content and happy with the decree of Allah Ta`ala. As you would be appreciative to Allah Ta`ala and show gratitude from the recesses of your heart, Allah Ta`ala will give you satisfaction, contentment and a strong sense of security.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
