(In the name of Allah, most Gracious, most Compassionate)
All praise is due to Allah ().
We praise Him and seek His assistance. We ask for His forgiveness and
take refuge in Him from the evil within ourselves and from the evil of
our deeds. He whom Allah ()
guides will never be misguided yet whomever He allows to stray will never
find his way. I bear witness that there is no god but Allah (),
alone, He has no partner, and I bear witness that Muhammad is His
Servant and Messenger.
Dear brothers and sisters, it is incumbent upon all Muslims to recite
the Holy Qur'an and to do so, incorporating the rules of tajweed.
In fact this is extremely important, yet the importance of this matter
is greatly under-estimated. Indeed, I myself was not taught the correct
way, (although may Almighty Allah ()
reward my teacher for her efforts which were confined to the best of her
knowledge). Alhamdulillah, by the Mercy of Allah (),
I now appreciate the importance of studying tajweed with a view to
enable correct recitation. So please understand that this is something
that we must give priority to in our lives.
More importantly, however, is the actual implementation of these rules
of tajweed. Acquiring an understanding of the rules themselves is of
course relatively easy; the real task is the skilful application
of these rules into one's recitation thereby achieving correct
recitation of the beautiful words of Almighty Allah ().
This is where one needs commitment, perseverance and ideally, the
guidance of a teacher.
Dear brothers and sisters, I am not by any means professing to be an
expert in the field of Tajweed. I ask you to accept this tajweed
programme as a small, humble attempt on my part towards facilitating
correct Quranic reading so that minor and major errors are prevented,
Whilst every effort has been made to ensure there are no errors or
discrepancies in this programme, if any are found however, I urge you to
please bring them to my attention. Also, please feel free to forward any
feedback or questions. This can be done via the 'contact us' option
displayed on the home page.
Finally, I would like to express my gratitude to each and every person
who has unselfishly given of their time towards the establishment of
this website. May the Almighty Allah reward them in abundance. I am
especially grateful to the website designer who has patiently worked
alongside me in this endeavour.
We ask Allah to bless this project and by His Will and Mercy to enable
us all to benefit from the knowledge therein, only seeking the Pleasure
Allah, let us be of those who recite the Holy Qur'an well and understand
its explicit meanings, as well as the hidden meaning.
make the light of the Holy Qur'an the delight of our hearts, the light
of our souls and the relief of our sorrows and griefs, and to guide and
drive us to Jannat Al Firdous.'
