The Meaning of Holy Quran by Emerick-Kids Quran

Buy Via Amazon

  • The Meaning of the Holy Qur’an for School Children is a 828 Page Kids Quran which explains the Chapters of Holy quran in a very easy format.Or we can say that it teaches the Kids the Moral of the Chapter.
  • The entire Qur’an is translated into a child’s language level, with pictures and introductions to each surah, and explanations in sidebars of important concepts. Not just the stories of a few prophets, or just a chapter, but the entire Qur’an, 800 plus pages, translated into a child’s level.
  • One Very Interesting thing I found with the Book is that I never Knew that Quran is so systematically arranged.For Example It goes like this:
  1. The Opening

The 2 Bright Lights

2.The Cow

  1. The Family of Imran

The Law giving Chapters

3.The Woman

4.The Banquet Table

6.The Livestock

7.The Height

The Chapters of Struggle

8.The Spoils of War

9.The Repentance



Stories of the Past

26.The Poet

  1. The Ants

28.The Tales

29.The Spider

I Also Learned about the Family of  the Seven Ha Meems from This Book:They are Chapter 40-46 of the Qura And about the Rhythemic Chapters of Quran- Chapter 95-112
