The state of Muslim nations after World Wars I and II, along with the reciprocal rise of Western powers due to their technological, military, and economic advancements, saw a reversal of the flow emigrants between the two worlds. There had been a period of considerable length of time when the flow had been in the opposite direction, that is, from West towards the East. People from all over Europe used to come to Muslim lands to learn various sciences, such as mathematics, astronomy, medicine, etc. But now the trend had been reversed.
The more the West grew stronger economically, and the more factories it set up to produce the products of its technological research and advancements so that it could harvest their economic fruit, the more people it needed to work in these factories. There soon came a time when the West ran short on local labor and had to import labor from underdeveloped countries to meet the shortage. These underdeveloped manpower exporting countries also included many Muslim countries.
These Muslim emigrants lived and worked in their adopted homelands and tried their best to assimilate into the foreign cultures. Some adopted the new cultures to an extent that they forgot all about the countries, cultures, and religion they had left behind. Yet, there were many who maintained their religious identity even though they adopted the dress, food, and languages of the new cultures they were now living in. The maintenance of this religious identity in case of Muslims included Reading Quran and Teaching it to their children.
In time, these Muslim emigrants formed Muslim communities and continued to swell in numbers with the rapid growth of Western economies, the exponential growth of consumerism, and the resultant need for more and more products, factories, and labor. Muslims, like any other minority community, sought the comfort and support of other members of their faith in foreign lands and began to form communities. Those among these communities who practiced their religion, sought to establish Masajid (plural of Masjid = Mosques) in their respective communities so that they could perform congregational Friday prayers, discuss community specific problems, hold funeral prayers, etc.
These Muslim communities are now thriving in almost every non-Muslim country of the world, especially Western countries. Yet, despite their success, and despite the fact that many Masajid in non-Muslim countries have some sort of Quran schools where Muslim children can Learn to Read Quran, the nature of life in non-Muslim countries is such that most Muslims are still unable to meet this fundamental obligation to their children. The odd working hours, great distances, and the small number of Quran Tutors in non-Muslim countries all combine to make the arrangement of Quran lessons for kids a daunting task for Muslims living abroad.
Fortunately, technological advancements in computer technology, especially voice communication over the internet, has now made it possible for people to take online classes, which means Muslim parents and children can now easily Learn Quran Online without having to go anywhere. In fact, anyone with a computer system and an internet connection – which almost everyone living abroad owns nowadays – a pair of speakers or headphones, a microphone, and voice communication software – which can be downloaded free of charge – can now take Quran lessons online from the comfort of their home, and at a time and schedule of their own choice.
