Elevate Your Quranic Recitation

At SALAM IQRA’ School, we deeply recognize the transformative power of the Quran in guiding and enriching our lives. This understanding is at the heart of our Tajweed Course, designed to welcome adult learners into the world of precise Quranic recitation. This course aims to refine your Quranic reading and recitation skills, leading to a profound understanding and a heartfelt connection with the words of Allah.

What is Tajweed?

The word Tajweed linguistically means ‘proficiency’ or ‘doing something well’. When applied to the Qur’an, it means giving every letter of the Qur’an its rights and dues of characteristics when we recite the Qur’an and observing the rules that apply to those letters in different situations. We give the letters their rights by observing the essential characteristics of each letter that never leave it. And we give them their dues by observing the characteristics of each letter that are present in them some of the time and not present at other times.

The Qur’an was revealed with Tajweed rules applied to it. In other words, when the angel Jibreel ((AS)) recited the words of Allah to the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) he recited them in a certain way and he showed the Prophet (SAW) the ways in which it was permissible to recite the Qur’an. So it is upon us to observe those rules so that we recite it in the way it was revealed.
