Tajwid is one of the most prominent sciences of the Quran & Islam. Tajweed is a set of rules that help us read the Qaida Quran properly, exactly like how angel Jibrail recited it to the Prophet (PBUH). We must practice Quran with Tajweed to avoid any major mistakes that could change the Quran’s meaning.
Learning Tajweed in English
It is possible to teach and learn tajweed in English. First, you can start by learning the Arabic letters and their sound, then learn about each letter’s points of articulation and qualities.
Learning Tajweed with Qaida
Every Arabic letter has a pronunciation point from which it originates, called the Makhraj, and attributes called the Sifaat. Noorani Qaida will establish your basis to understand these rules quickly.
Errors in Quran recitation
When reading, people make two errors: apparent mistakes and hidden ones.
Apparent mistakes are usually obvious and can change entire words’ meanings. Hidden mistakes, on the other hand, are harder to catch. There is an agreement among the scholars in the opinion that tajweed being applied to avoid the apparent mistakes is an individual obligation (Fard Ayn) while applying the rules of tajweed to avoid the hidden mistakes is a collective obligation (Fard Kifayah)
