Alhamdulillaah, in this new age of learning made easy by ever-evolving technology, we find many works written on Tajweed in the English language. Our eBook on Tajweed is a humble endeavor to provide a comprehensive understanding of all concepts necessary to correctly read the Qur’aan with Tajweed as per the rules of Hafs ‘an ‘Aasim in the way of Shaatibiyyah.

The intent is not to re-invent the wheel but to provide insights and benefits from the meticulous works of our esteemed scholars, available in the Arabic language. We have used modern tools and techniques of presentation and simplified the understanding of Tajweed for the English reader.

The foundations of the book

One of our finest contemporary scholars in the field of Tajweed, Shaykh Dr. Ayman Rushdie Suwayd, in his book on Tajweed (التجويد المصور At-Tajweed Al-Musawwar), has exhaustively elucidated all aspects of Tajweed. Also, in his popular video series (الإتقان لتلاوة القرآن Al-Itqaan li-Tilaawatil Qur’aan), the Shaykh explains, verse by verse, the renowned book (منظومة المقدمة Manzoomah Al-Muqaddimah) of the esteemed scholar Imaam Ibn Al-Jazari (may Allaah have mercy on him) that expound aspects of Tajweed in beautiful poetic form.

Our eBook is structured based on the topics covered in At-Tajweed Al-Musawwar with benefits derived from the video lecture series Al-Itqaan li-Tilaawatil Qur’aan of Shaykh Ayman Rushdie Suwayd. Any corrections, suggestions, comments and feedback are welcome and can be sent to
