Learning Quran with Tajweed – The Importance Unveiled

Oct 13th 2015 at 1:47 AM

What does Tajweed actually mean? Have you ever wondered how is it connected to the Quran? Many of us do not know the importance of learning Quran with Tajweed. Let us start with what exactly is Tajweed. It is the recitation of the Holy book in the exact method in which our Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) recited thousands of years ago. The whole concept is to fine tune the recitation to make it sound more pious and sweet with proper pronunciation.

The literal meaning of Tajweed is ‘doing something well’ or ‘proficiency’ and is derived from the Arabic word ‘Jayyid’ which means good. Therefore, with Tajweed what is established is that each word in the Holy Quran is given its exact meaning, respect and its characteristics; which otherwise would not be possible.

Very few of us know that Tajweed was applied during the revelation of Quran as done by Angel Jibreel when he recited it clearly to our Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). Therefore, it is the duty of every Muslim to abide by those strict rules while reciting.

Quran being the exact words from Allah, it is important to recite it in the correct manner following Tajweed strictly. The exact purpose of this proficiency is to correct every reader to make the pronunciations perfect keeping up with the characteristics and ruling of each word they pass by.

When it comes to the authenticity of Tajweed, there is absolutely no doubt as none other than Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) set the rules out in the same way it was revealed to him. There have been no changes made to it since then. The rules were set down by our Prophet to his companions who then transferred it as such to their followers and it went on.

There are several reliable websites available online, teaching Holy Quran along with Tajweed which has been already tested scientifically for the uprightness and uniformity of the pronunciation. While looking out for online tutors, it is important to verify whether they are qualified enough to teach the rules correctly.

Before you start up to learn Tajweed, it is important to understand that only with constant practice one can succeed in reading the Holy Quran to the utmost perfection. Try to form groups and learn so that each mistake is pointed, to correct it every now and then. Listening to popular recitations will also help to copy the melody and tune to bring harmony everywhere.
