    * Why should I learn Tajweed?

    o Introduction and Purpose - The word Tajweed linguistically means ‘proficiency’ or doing something well. It comes from the same root letters as ‘jayyid’ (meaning ‘good’). When applied to the Qur’an, it means giving every letter its rights & dues of characteristics during recitation and observing the rules that apply to the letters in different situations. We give the letters their rights by observing the essential characteristics of each letter. We give them their dues by observing the characteristics of each letter that are present in them in certain situations. Because the Qur’an is from Allah, its recitation must be taken very seriously. The purpose of the science of Tajweed is to make the reciter proficient in reciting the Qur’an, observing the correct pronunciation of every letter, without any exaggeration or deficiency. And so through this the reciter can recite the Qur’an upon the way of the Prophet (saw) who received it from Allah (SWT) via Jibreel in the classical Arabic dialect that it came down in.

    o Makhraj - Arabic letters each have a Makhraj (exit or articulation point) from which they originate and they also have a sifaat (attribute) associated to them. Knowing the Makhraj or sifaat is important to Tajweed. Sometimes 2 letters have very similar articulation points which makes mixing them up easy. So if a person does not know the attributes of each letter there is a danger that they will change the meaning of the words in Qur’an recitation. Observing the rules of tajweed in reciting protects the reciter from making mistakes in reciting the Qur’an.

    The scholars have divided the types of mistakes one might fall into when reciting the Qur’an into 2 types— 1. Clear Mistakes 2. Unobvious (hidden).

    Clear mistakes must be avoided by all and to avoid them, one must know the rules of tajweed, If a person falls into the clear mistakes, this is considered a sin and Ibn Taymiyyah even regarded it undesirable for a student of knowledge (knower of tajweed) to pray behind a person who makes clear mistakes in their Salah. As for the unobvious mistakes, then the ruling on them is lighter and the recitation of a person with unobvious mistakes is regarded as lacking in completeness.

    The Prophet (saw) said ‘beautify the Qur’an with your voices [for a fine voice increases the Qur’an in beauty]’ - (Bukhari)

    He (saw) also said ‘He who does not recite the Qur’an in a pleasant voice is not of us’ - (Abu Dawud)

    ‘Those who We have given the Book to, give it its right in recitation (recite it as it should be recited)’ - (Surah al-Baqarah, Ayah 121)

    Tajweed is the Science of reading Qur'an correctly.
    Learning how to recite the Qur'an correctly is an obligatory act upon EVERY Muslim.

    "Whoever recites a letter from the Book of Allah, he will be credited with a good deed, and a good deed gets a ten-fold reward. I do not say that Alif-Lam-Mim is one letter, but Alif is a letter, Lam is a letter and Mim is a letter.''
