Prerequisites

Basic reading fluency, such as knowing:

  • the letters of the Arabic alphabet in their various forms
  • the different vowel signs and what they do to a letter
  • when to stretch the sound of a letter

Contents of the course

Learn to apply fundamental reading rules (tajweed) when reciting the Quran. The course is taught at a very simplified level to enable you to apply the rules immediately with minimum fuss.

The lessons will be split between learning the rules one by one and applying them in the Qur’an for practice until the student is comfortable enough to move on to the next rule.

This course is for adults as well as children, Arab and non-Arab, new (revert) Muslims as well as those who have learned to read already but are looking to improve their application of tajweed in their personal reading.
