Tajweed Simplified


The Noble Qur’an is the literal words of Allah that He revealed as an infallible source of legislation for mankind to live an organized life by. It contains regulations and recommendations about all aspects of life and references to the Hereafter. Being so important, the Qur’an must be read, written, and recited correctly and clearly, so as not to create any sort of ambiguity or misunderstanding whatsoever. Allah Almighty addressed His Messenger, Muhammad, sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam, in the Qur’an, saying “…. And recite the Qur’an with measured recitation.” (Qur’an 73:4)

Listening to the Qur’an being recited correctly is enough to soften even the hardest of hearts. Muslims and non-Muslims alike find it a deeply moving experience, even if they do not understand what is being said. Every Muslim has to recite Qur’an in prayers, but many of us do not realize that reciting the Qur’an correctly while observing the rules of recitation is not an advanced science for expert reciters alone, rather it is an obligation upon each and every one of us whenever we recite the Qur’an.

Our approach to teaching tajweed to busy adults who have long lost their ability to easily perceive any phoneme in any language is unique. We focus primarily on helping adults reach their potential through repetition and short bouts of practice consistently throughout the week. Once the students complete this course, they have the option to memorize either the whole Qur’ān or certain sūwar or ajzā of the Qur’ān or join the Ijaazah Simplified program to receive ijaazah in the reading of Imam Hafs.
