Quran Reading with TAKWWED

At the successful completion and revision of the basic course - NOORANI QAIDA, the student will then advance to the next course which is the Quran Reading with TAJWEED. TAJWEED is an Arabic word which can be translated to mean to adorn, beautify or make better. Pertaining to the reading of the Quran, TAJWEED is a set of rules for the proper pronunciation of the letters and the clarity of texts in the recitation of the Holy Quran. Thus, this course is an advanced course for students who want to improve on their recitation skills of the holy text based on the rules of TAJWEED.

TAJWEED is very important especially when it comes to clarity in reciting the Quran. This is because a single letter can change the delivery of a word and the slightest change in the recitation of the verses in the Holy Quran can cause a deviation from the true interpretation of the verses which is a great sin. As a student learning the Quran, this is one mistake you must avoid. When reading the Quranic verses, one must take it as a whole package, you can not take the verses separately in recitation. This is why it is important to take TAJWEED lessons, to help you understand exactly how the Quran is meant to be read so you can get the appropriate interpretation. Below is a breakdown of the course outline for Quran reading with TAJWEED;

            •           In the first lesson, the student will be introduced to TAJWEED, its meaning and importance.

            •           The second lesson will be focused on the importance of reading with TAJWEED according to SUNNAH.

            •           Next, the student will be taught the rules of NOON SAKINAH and TANWEED

            •           Afterwards, the student will receive a thorough and detailed tutorial on the rules of MEEM SAKINAH

            •           In the fifth lesson, the rules of MADD and that of AHKAM of MADD will be added to the syllabus

            •           The eighth lesson will delve deeper into the AHKAM of letters with emphasizes on the bold letters and heavy sounds.

            •           In this lesson, the students will learn about the characteristics of all the 29 letters in the Arabic alphabets and how each letter can be applied in Quranic text.

            •           The tenth and final lesson will be an introduction to WUQOOF which will teach students the proper way of pausing at the end of each verse.

Memorize Quran

This course is for children and adults who are interested in memorizing the Quran to become HAFIZ of Quran. The HAFIZ are people who have taken the time to memorize the Holy Book of Allah and they are some of the most respected people in the Muslim community. It is not difficult to learn how to memorize the Quran online provided you are committed to accomplishing this feat. On the average, if you dedicate 3 hours a day, 5 days a week to memorizing the Quran, it will take about 3 to 5 years for you to be well versed in the holy text.

However, before you sign up for online classes for the memorization of the Holy Quran, you must have achieved fluency in reading the Quran with TAJWEED. This is because it will be practically impossible to memorize the entire Quranic text unless you are able to read it accurately and fluently. If you succeed in memorizing the Holy Quran, you are mandated to not forget it. Regular and frequent revisions and recitation of the Quran can help you ensure you do not forget it IN SHA ALLAH. The course outline for memorizing the Holy Quran is as follows;

            •           New lesson - SABAQ

Here, the teacher/tutor will recite 5 to 10 lines Quranic text with TAJWEED with the student. The teacher will ensure that the letters are correctly pronounced, the recited text is clear and that there is no deviation from the true meaning of the text. Then the student will revise and memorize the text on their own at the end of the lesson. It is important to fully memorise your lines before your next class.

            •           Newly memorised lessons - SABAQI

After every new lesson, the student will recite the text by heart to the teacher in the next memorization class. This is to show the teacher you fully understood and remember what you memorized from the previous class. Sometimes, the student may have to recite from heart what was memorized from a series of about 5 to 8 classes all at once. This is to ensure that you do not forget what you memorized in the previous lessons.

            •           Revision - MANZIL

The lesson involves the revision of any JUZZ already memorized by the student. This constant revision will help both the student and the teacher ensure that the student is not forgetting the previous lessons as they advance to new ones.

IJAZAH Course

IJAZAH is an Arabic word which means “permission” and in this context, IJAZAH means “permission to narrate”. IJAZAH in TAJWEED of Quran is used to set the narration of the holy book of Allah via the IJAZAH holder. An IJAZAH certificate is issued by a teacher or someone of higher authority in the Muslim community to signify that the holder of such a certificate has gained great knowledge from their teacher.

Anyone awarded an IJAZAH certificate is thereby licensed to narrate the teachings of the Holy Quran and give another Muslim brother or sister the IJAZAH certificate as well. Students can sign up for IJAZAH classes and on the successful completion of the course which will involve recitation to a sheikh or sheikha, they will be awarded the certificate.

To join the IJAZAH program, a student must meet certain standards. The first standard is that a student must be between the ages of 9 to 60 to qualify for the program. Secondly, it is essential for any prospective student to know how to recite the Quran with TAJWEED fluently without mistakes. There may be a trial session to ensure that the prospective students meet the standards mentioned above before they can proceed with the course. Male and female teachers are typically appointed for male and female students respectively. On successful completion of the IJAZAH program, the student will be awarded the IJAZAH certificate by the teacher and academy.
