The work establishes the facts that no other book in the world is
memorised and recited with prescribed well established rules giving
birth to profound literature throughout the generations, as the Qur’an
is accomplishing. It is only the Qur’an which presents global accounts
for the recitation of Divine revelations.
It is the first teaching manual of its kind in English, with free DVDs.
It gives equal weight to both theory and practice with ample examples
from the Qur’an, enabling a reader to fully comprehend important themes.
The work is divided into seventeen units and seventy-five rules which
together with DVDs and the use of diagrams, illustrations and tables
makes learning the recitation of the Qur’an clear, effective and
interesting. It provides 1019 examples from the quoted Qur’anic text
with references recited by an eminent Qari, al-Shaykh Abu Harun
Muhammad Khalil. It provides example analysis of all rules with revision
The introduction to ‘Ilm al-Tajwid expounds among other aspects the
immense contribution of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) towards the
recitation of the Qur’an and ‘Ilm al-Tajwid. It includes the biographies
of the prominent Qurra, reciters and presents the scientific process
from breathing to the creation of sound and speech with a brief survey
of Arabic phonetics. A unique opportunity to learn the wisdom of the
recitation of the Qur’an and improve the recitation.
