Recitation of the Quran is a form of worship that requires perfection as far as possible. Tajweed is an Islamic science designed to ensure that. Allaah, The Most High says, "...and recite the Quran with measured recitation." (Quran 73:4) The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, "Such a person as recites the Quran and masters it by heart, will be with the noble righteous scribes (in Heaven)..." (Al-Bukhari) This program aims at developing excellence and precision in reciting the Words of Allaah. It is based on the popular book A Brief Introduction to Tajweed by Umm Muhammad. The program teaches proper pronunciation of Arabic letters and the basic rules of Tajweed with examples and exercises. Also included is an instructional recitation of short surahs by Shaykh Mohammad Al-Raee, which gives the student an opportunity to recite each verse after him - a classical proven method for memorizing and learning the Quran. Umm Muhammad is the author of numerous works on Islamic topics, including her popular translation of the Quran (Saheeh International). Shaykh Mohammad Al-Raee, an expert in Tajweed, is not only certified from Al-Madina Al-Munawwara, but a link in a chain of authentic reciters going directly back to the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) as well.
