This course is designed for those seeking to learn the rules of the recitation of the Quran. Here one starts from the basic foundations from the Qaidah and diligently moves along to reciting from the Quran. Great importance and stress is given to tajweed, which is the science of reciting the Quran with the correct rules and accurate pronunciation of each letter and sound.

First Steps to the Qur’an

This course is for those students who wish to take their first steps into reading and writing the Arabic script of the Qur’an. Students will learn the alphabet with the correct pronunciation (Makhraj), will be able to recognise letters and vowels to read short verses from the Qur’an as well as essential supplications for Salaah. In this course we promise you will receive personal attention from an excellent teacher with special interpersonal and communication skills. Our aim in this course is to help you break down those barriers to vast oceans of knowledge.

 

Tajweed ul Qur’an Level 1

This level is for students who are able to read Arabic and know the Makhraj in detail. In this level students will start to add beauty to their recitation by learning certain fundamental rules of Tajweed; especially the nasal sounds. The following rules will be learnt in this course: Noon as Saakinah/Tanween, Meem as Saakinah, Laam as Saakinah and Qalqalah. Our aim in this course is to help students improve their recitation of the Qur’an and recite fluently with the rules learnt in class based on the Tajweed books by Shaykh Ayman and exclusively produced notes tailored for this level.

 

Tajweed ul Qur’an Level 2

This level is for students who have completed Tajweed level 1 or equivalent. Our aim in this level is to help students improve their recitation of the Qur’an and recite fluently with the new rules learnt in class. The following rules will be learnt in this course: Al Mudood, Hamzatul Wasl and the rules of Raa’. As with the previous levels, exclusive notes will be used to facilitate learning, with various dimensions of practical learning.

 

Tajweed ul Qur’an Level 2 (Advanced)

This level is for students who have completed Tajweed level 2 or equivalent. Our aim in this level is to further help students improve their recitation by applying the already learned rules in the previous levels, completing most of the rules of Tajweed and give sufficient theory and practice to recite to a high standard. This advanced level concentrates on knowing the characteristics of the letters (as Sifaat) and some exceptional rules.

Registration for this course will open in early April 2015

Tajweed ul Qur’an Level 3 (Tarteel)

This level is for those students who have successfully studied all rules up to Tajweed level 2 Advanced and now wish to apply the rules through practice and learn how to recite the Qur’an in a slow measured rhythmic manner as ordered in the beautiful Qur’an “and recite the Qur’an in slow measured rhythmic tones” [Surat Muzzammil, verse 4]. The rules pertaining to stopping and some exceptional rules will be taught. Students will be expected to memorise selected chapters of the Qur’an with the correct rulings as they near the end of the course. This class will be especially for advanced students and those who are innately gifted and wish to improve their recitation by learning different intonations of recitation. The students will be handpicked by the teacher and will receive special attention.
