Learn To Recite Quran with Tajweed
The book of Allah was sent down in portions spanning a period of 23 years. During this period, Muhammad (ﷺ) would recite the Quran during the month of Ramadhan to Jibreel (Alayhis Salaam). In the final Ramadhan of our beloved Prophet (ﷺ), he recited it twice.
The Quran is a book of great importance where we are required to regularly keep our hearts in touch with it to relate to it, remind us and recite it correctly.
The focus of Tajweed is to recite the Quran correctly, as it was taught by Jibreel (Alayhis Salaam) to the Prophet (ﷺ), down to the scholars and learned of our time.
To incorrectly pronounce a letter or a short vowel (Fatha, Kasra & Dhamma) can lead to a change in the meaning of the Ayah, an act which can nullify that Salah whether intentional or not.
E.g. The ayah ‘Wa qatala Da’woodu Jaaloota*’ translates to ‘And David killed Goliath’. By pronouncing this as ‘Wa qatala Da’wooda Jaalootu’, the translation how now changed to ‘And Goliath killed David’. * Surah Baqarah, 2:251
With this, it is an obligation on every Muslim to seek knowledge and learn to perfect their recitation, male or female, young or old.
At Fussilat Academy, we develop our students towards proficiently reciting the Quran as instructed by Allah:
‘…and recite the Quran as it ought to be recited.’* * Surah Muzzammil, 73:4
Our Tajweed course is split into 3 areas consisting of:
Makhaarij – The point of exit of each letter.
Sifaat – The characteristics of letters
Ahkaam Ul Tajweed – The rules of Tajweed, which include the roles of pausing & stopping correctly, Huroof Al Muqatta’aat (Disjoined letters), and more.
All of these rules are taught at varying levels, based on the ability and level of each child. At a beginner level, students learn letters with a few of the basic rules. Once they have finished this, they then progress to the more advanced levels where they are taught the tajweed rules, 1 rule a week, with application into Quranic recitation during the class and at home.
