A Comprehensive Guide to Tajweed
Compiled By Muawiyah ibn (Mufti) Abdus-Samad

About The Book

The book intends to build upon the basics of Tajweed and provides a thorough overview of tajweed as a subject. It discusses the details of Arabic literature within the subject, which will allow the reader to independently construe further literature.

The Qur'an is the word of Allah, and its every syllable is from Allah. Its recitation must be taken very seriously. The purpose of the Science of Tajweed in essence is to make the reader proficient in reciting the Qur'an, observing the correct pronunciation of every letter with the rulings and characteristics which apply to each letter, without any exaggeration or deficiency. And so through this the redear can recite the Qur'an upon the way of the Prophet (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) who received it from Jibreel (AS) who received it from Allah (subhanahu wa ta'aala) in the Classical Arabic dialect that it came down in.

Arabic letters each have a:

Makhraj - an exit or articulation point - in the mouth or throat from which they originate and they also each have

Sifaat - attributes, or characteristics - particular to them.

Knowing the Makhraj and Sifaat of each letter is an important part of Tajweed. Sometimes two letters have very similar exits which makes mixing them up easy. So if a person does not know the attributes of each letter there is a danger that he will change the meaning of the words in Qur'an recitation. Observing the rules of Tajweed in reciting protects the reader from making mistakes in reciting the Qur'an.
