The bearer of the Qur’an is never supposed to have shabby clothes scattered in the form, a sign of asceticism, for example, and drawing close to God by leaving belongings. This is a big mistake and may deter people from learning from him, but God is beautiful and loves Beauty and he who memorizes the Book of God certainly preserves the verse (Say: He who forbade the adornment of God that He brought out for His servants and the good things of sustenance, say they are for those who believe in the life of this world exclusively on the Day of Resurrection).

3- The Quran teacher must be of good character and morals, The bearer of the Book of God must have noble manners. The Messenger of God, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “The believer is not slandered, cursed, obscene, or obscene.” The teacher of the Qur’an is not a lot of cursing, cursing, nor much saying. Obscenity is a form of speech, and it is not cursing, cursing, or stabbing, but it is what people are ashamed to say and hate to hear. It also does not hurt the feelings of his students, especially if they are children. He does not tell them about their weak level, lack of achievement, stupidity, and so on, which alienates children from memorizing the Book of God.
4- The Quran teacher must also be of good manners, tolerant of manners and manners, a kind smiler who does not enter the assembly with his eyebrows clammy, and he does not joke a lot so that he goes with the dignity of the assembly.

For example, the teacher realizes the nature of the student with limited abilities, so he begins to focus on his positives, motivates and encourages him, and realizes the nature of the quarrelsome student, so he deals with him with patience and softness.
Finally, every Quran teacher must realize that every student is a seed of goodness and an asset to Islam. He should not be despised by a student because of his poor level of memorization, and a student should not be underestimated at the expense of another student, and to know that the Book of God is a great trust.
