Tajweed Miscellany

As intended, here are some random tajweed notes on makhaarij, sifaat etc.

First of all, I found this interesting chart on tajweed showing quite a few rules. Click on the pic to open it in a new window and then expand it to see it in all its glory.

Tajweed chart

I was told makhaarij and sifaat make up half of tajweed so here’s a couple of diagrams to help. Makhaarij are essential to making sure the sound comes from the right point, and to consequently have the right qualities (sifaat).

Here’s an at-a-glance document about each harf (letter) and its sifaat.

  1. Online QuranStuduy is a International Quranic education institute. we provide this facility all over the world like UK, USA, Canada, Australia, Germany, Belguim. This is a leading name in providing services of one to one Quran teaching over internet by highly qualified, well versed and highly trained professional teachers.
    Online QuranStudy has been established with the aim of teaching the Holy Quran to let Muslims of the whole world recite Holy Quran accurately according to the rules of Tajweed and Tarteel. We have introduced new ways of teaching and training people which have been tried and found helpful in learning as mentioned by our students, kids, adults and even old.
    We understand that Muslims living in Non-Muslim world are facing extreme difficulties to get their children learnt to recite Holy Quran accurately by an expert tutor. They do have Madrassas, mosques and Islamic teaching centers. But, firstly, they can not have one to one session with the teacher and the teacher can not concentrate to each student individually. Secondly, we know that vast majority of people are engaged in full time commitments like full time work, study and family responsibilities and they can not have enough time to send their children to the institutes, especially children and sisters are having problems while going to mosques and Islamic centers to learn Quran. As environment in society and even amongst Muslims is not ideal for going on the path of knowledge whilst trying to retain their modesty.
    With the consideration of all these social factors http://www.onlinequranstudy.com wants to help these Muslims and their kids enlighten their lives with the recitation of Holy Quran in an appropriate way by providing them online one to one Quran learning classes while sitting at home at a time most suited to them.
    Our tutors are qualified from the world’s best Islamic institutes. All of them have memorized Quran and they have passed 8 years course in Islamic education and have mastered in Tajweed and recitation of Quran. They also have good experience of more than 3 years in teaching kids and young people in person as well as online
