The issue in this research is whether a learnability study using 'pa’jojo' affects the speed and ability to handle reading and writing difficulties of the Qur'an in children in Gowa Regency. This type of research is qualitative field research and utilizes a phenomenological research approach related to the interpretation of reality. The focus of phenomenological research is: (1) Textural description, and (2) Structural description. The informants or data sources for this study consist of religious educators, Quranic teachers, parents of students, and the students themselves. The research instruments include observation, interviews, and documentation. The results of this study indicate that using 'pa’jojo' during reading provides many conveniences and benefits, including: (1) Pointing to specific elements - when opening the Qur'an, complex letters with many categories are displayed. The presence of 'pa’jojo' helps children to point to specific letters and readings directly. 'Pa’jojo' is quite effective and captures attention during reading to focus on the indicated information. It facilitates transitions between readings, letters, and readings according to preferences. The pointer tool is shaped like a pen or pencil. (2) There are factors causing learning difficulties in reading the Qur'an in children, including internal cognitive factors (cognitive domain), affective factors (emotional domain), and psychomotor factors (physical domain). External factors encompass various environmental situations, including family environment, community/neighborhood environment, school environment, or religious education settings. The implications of this research suggest that local governments and the Ministry of Religious Affairs should increase funding, facilities, and infrastructure related to Quranic schools (TPA/TKA) and provide training to Quranic teachers regarding effective methods for teaching reading and writing the Qur'an accurately and effectively.
