Allah subhana wa ta’ala has blessed upon us the glorious book of mercy, Al-Quran.


Allah subhana wa ta’ala has blessed upon us the glorious book of mercy, Al-Quran. He selected the nation of his beloved Prophet Muhammed (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) to cherish it. What so deserving did we do to get this ultimate blessing? Nothing at all! Is the answer. How magnificently merciful is our Lord, subhan’Allah!

It is indeed an honor to read the Quran, and when doing so, we are required to fulfill the obligations of the noble book. Among which is reading it with tajweed.

Allah Ta’ala says in the noble Qur’an, ‘And recite the Qur’an with Tarteel.’ (73:4)

When asked about the meaning of Tarteel, Hadhrat Ali (Radhiallaahu Anhu) replied, ‘It means that the Qur’an should be recited with Tajwid and with due observance to the rules of Waqf (pausing or stopping at the end of the verse).’

Prophet (SAW) has said, ‘Indeed Allah desires that the Qur’an be recited in the manner it was revealed.’ This Hadith clarified by the Aayat and, ‘We revealed the Qur’an with Tartil.’ (surah Baqrah, verse:32)


Tajweed can be defined as the science of pronunciation of the qur’anic Arabic. . There was no requirement for teaching tajweed during the era of the Prophet (SAW) because the Arabic language they spoke was perfect in tajweed. It is only after Islam spread across the non-arab countries did this need actually arise.

In the tajweed course offered here, you can at learn basic tajweed and in Sha Allah, improve your command over the qur’anic Arabic. There’s nothing more beautiful than memorizing the book of Allah and reciting it with proper tajweed.

Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) has said, ‘The Qur’an will either testify in your favor or against you.’ Hence, if we fall short in fulfilling the requirements of the Holy Qur’an in our recitation, the Qur’an will testify against us. If we are not familiar with these requirements, it is compelling to be acquainted with the laws of Tajweed.

He commanded people to recite in a beautiful and melodious tone. He said “Beautify the Qur’an with your voices [for a fine voice increases the Qur’an in beauty]”


The Applied tajweed course provided here completely teaches you to read the Quran with proper tajweed. Being a Hifz-ul quran with tajweed is such a huge blessing. Allah (SWT) gives us 10 rewards for each letter we read. Just as we are required to pronounce the words of English language in a certain manner, the same applies with qur’anic Arabic as well. Why should we pronounce it aptly? For example, knight. Here the ‘k’ is silent or let us consider the homophones ‘blew and blue’. A slight change in the letters can change the entire meaning of the word.

Aisha (R.A) relates that the prophet (SAW) said: verily, the one who recites the Quran beautifully, smoothly and precisely, he will be in the company of noble and obedient angels. And as for the one who recites with difficulty, stammering or stumbling, through its verses, then he will have twice that reward. (Al-bukhari, Muslim)

Subhan’Allah! We are promised double the reward just for trying to attain perfection. Seek Allah’s help in your plans and start learning right away.

When he draws near me by the span of his hand, I draw near him by the length of a cubit. (sahih Muslim)

‘Those who We have given the Book to, give it its right in recitation (recite it as it should be recited)’ (Surah al-Baqarah, ayah 121)
