Asalamu Alaykum Wa Rahmatu Allahi Ta’ala Wa Barakatuh.

I have started up this blog to spread the knowledge I gain from learning Arabic and Tajweed.
I hope you benefit from my posts. Buzz through a comment or email me here if you need any clarification on anything. If you have any suggestions for improvement, I’m all ears.

Please know that all credit is due to everyone who has taught me and provided me with invaluable resources. May Allah reward you.

Jazakum Allahu khair,

  1. Assalamu Alaikum.
    Masha’Allah, you are doing a noble work. May Allah reward you abundantly both in this world and in the Hereafter. Aameen.
    Your blog is highly beneficial to the learners including me. Keep up the hard work!

    • Wa Alaykum Asalam.
      Jazaka Allahu khair.
      I must say, I was impressed with the abundant resources your blog contains! I ask Allah azza wa jall to grant us the strength to continue our hard work, accept our good deeds, correct our intention, and bless us with His rewards. Allahumma aameen.

  2. Shukran Jazeelan for your kind words and sincere du’aa. May Allah accept your du’aa and bless us all with His choicest Blessings. Aameen.
    Indeed, success can come only from Allah.
    In Him we Trust and unto Him we all have to return.
    By the way, I have given a link to this beautiful blog of yours in my Qur’an blog under Tajweed menu.

  3. Your wonderful blog reminds me of my childhood days when I used to learn tajweed rules from my ustaaz. My ustaaz used to keep a small notebook, and he would write all the rules there for us.

    To be honest, reciting the Book of Allah with tajweed makes a huge difference. I have always emphasized on reciting the Quran with correct tajweed, and after many years of practicing and listening, it has somewhat become a second nature for me. However, I believe that there are yet many rooms for improvements in my tajweed. May be you can listen to my qurra and give me some feedback on specific areas where I need to improve:

    (Surah Dhariat recited by me)

    (Surah Ahqaaf recited by me)

    (I am a greatest Sheikh Shuraim fan, and although I have my own unique style of recitation, I cannot help reciting like him)

    • Ahh… Masha Allah, tabarak Allah! What wonderful recitations, I could almost imgaine Sheikh Shuraim in front of me!

      From listening to the recitations, I deduced a couple of things:
      1. you’re not of Arab decent. Please correct me if I’m wrong, and I really apologise if I am. It’s just what I felt, of course, there’s no shame in that, I just find accents to be a very amazing thing.

      2. Your reading is very good masha Allah, however there were a few tajweed mistakes.
      I’m not going to be picky, but the ones that really stood out to me were the following:

      a. Heaviness of Light Letters. Like the seen in the word “asaateer”. More specific examples below.

      i) the heaviness of the letter taa ( ت ). Taa is a light letter, so it should always be said lightly. The heaviness always occured when it was followed or preceded by a heavy letter, the heavy letters make the sentence (خص ضغط قط). Example of this is at approx 3:40 of the first video when you say (منتصرين).

      ii) the heaviness of the alif ( أ ). The example here is at approx 1:10 in vid 1 when you say ( أرض ). Again, the heaviness is only because of the heavy letters following it.

      iii) when saying ( إلى الله ) be very careful not the make the “laam” of the word “ila” heavy. It comes out heavy sometimes because Allah is to be said with heaviness. Referring to 4:10 in the first vid.

      b. Qalqalah: aweomse qalqalahs, only you did one accidentally on a hamzah – eep.

      On the word, ( أغنياء ) in the second video at about 7:20. That heavy “eh” after the hamzah comes out sometimes if you’re out of breath, but do try to avoid it.

      c) The mudood.

      Ayah nine, at about 1.45 in the second vid, wa maa ana… this is a madd jaa’ez munfasil that can be sounded for 2, 4, or 6 counts, but it came out like a fat-ha. I’m sure this is just a one-off mistake.

      Insha Allah I haven’t completely ruined your ego. I must reiterate that your reading is very eloquent masha Allah. But for you, even for me, just a student of knowledge, there’s always a long path to go…

      Thanks for sharing your video recitations.
      With best wishes for many successes.

      • Thanks for the time that you have taken for specifically pointing out my tajweed issues. Inshallah I will work on them.

        BTW, you are right. I am not of Arab descent.

      • I would really hope to hear a future recitation after you practice really hard 🙂 I’m sure we’d all be very amazed, masha Allah…

    • Wa Alaykum Asalam!
      Thank you for the invitation! One that was gladly accepted.
      Jazaka Allahu khair for the beneficial articles on your blog, may Allah reward your greatly!

  4. Jazakhallah khairan and thanks a lot for pointing out my incorrect translation of the phrase “the Tiger of Allah.”

  5. Assalamualaikum.

    MashaAllah,you have a have a wonderful blog.Alhamdhulillah, I’ve understood many tajweed rules by reading your posts.Do you take online classes for tajweed?I’m looking for a well-versed quran tutor who teaches adults and children.I’d really appreciate your help in this regard.

    May Allah reward you for your work.

    • Alhmadulilah. May Allah increase you in knowledge. Since I consider myself a student of Tajweed, not a teacher, I don’t currently teach. I can, and will be happy to do so if we can agree on a time and method 🙂 You can email me if you’d like… This is assuming you’re a female 🙂

      • JazakAllah for your kind response.I’m a female and I’d be extremely happy to learn from you.I don’t have your mail id.We could discuss further if you can send me a test mail.

  6. Sister, I also would aso be interested if you would be willing to do online classes. I find your blog fascinating. Your posts are very easy to understand. Please email me if this is something you would consider.

  7. sorry me again i love exceptions to rules, question is regarding tasheel for ayaah 41:44 surah fussilaat
    the tasheel is done with ease is that pronouncing the humza tul wasl between humza and an alif?

    • Asalamu alaykum Jabar, I only have done 3 quizes using a site called PollDaddy. Sorry for my late response.
      On this page you can find the link to the 3 quizzes I have done. They are very humble. Also I had done fun bookmarks with questions on them, the link to these is here. I hope these can help you a bit.

  8. assalamu alaikum dear brother. just been reading your amazing blog! i have gained immense knowledge in half an hour. i have been studying tajweed for 4 years. but you have made the rules so easy to digest! they r so clear. much appreciate your hard work. may Allah increase you more and give you success in both worlds ameen.

  9. What an excellent website on Tajweed! May Allah Reward you!
    The page on ‘The Silent & Pronounced Alif’ When stopping on the word ‘thamooda with silent Alif’ should it be ‘thamoodaa’

  10. Jazaki Allaahu Khair for this great blog. The content has been presented in a nice, simple yet interesting way unlike many other sites. The pictures, text, layout etc are nice which definitely helps. May Allaah reward you immensely in this life and the Hereafter and keep us all sincere and steadfast upon the Haqq till death. Ameen.
