Level 1 Tajweed

Introduction to Tajweed
Definition
Linguistically: It means betterment. Applied definition: It is articulating every letter from its articulation
point and giving the letter its rights and its dues of characteristics.

It is to know the rights of the letter (the characteristics of the letter that never leaves it) and the dues of the letter (the letter‟s characteristics that are present in it sometimes and leaves it sometimes). The science of tajweed is the study in which one learns how to pronounce the letters with their characteristics from their correct articulation points, knowing what rules apply to it, and how to start reading a word, how to read it continually and how to stop at it.

History of Tajweed
The Quraan was revealed to the Prophet Muhammed ( َ ُّ ٍَ ‫ع‬ٚ َ ٗ ِ ٍَْ ٍ‫ػ‬ َ ٗ ُّ ٌٍ‫ّى ا‬ ٍ‫ص‬ َ ) with tajweed. During the time of the Prophet and his companions there was no such thing as tajweed because that was how the Quraan was taught and recited. The Quraan scholars used to teach their students the Quraan with complete tajweed. They used to recite and their students would recite after them. The process was repeated as many times as necessary until the student could read the Quraan perfectly. As the years went by, more and more people entered into Islam, the scholars saw a need to study how the Quraan was read and then come up with basic rules that can be applied to ensuring its correct recitation. The first publication of tajweed appeared as an independent science in its own right around the 4th century after hijra.

Ruling on Tajweed Two Sections to the science of tajweed

Theoretical
Studying the theoretical rules of tajweed, memorising them and understanding them. Ruling: Fardh kifaya (group obligation – as long as there is a group of Muslims studying the theoretical rules of tajweed, the obligation is lifted from the Muslims)

Practical
Applying the theoretical rules of tajweed while reading the Quraan. Ruling: Fardh ayan (individual obligation – it is an obligation on every single Muslims male and female to learn to read the Quraan with proper tajweed.

Two ways to obtain the science of tajweed

Ar-Riwayiah
(Through narration) The sheikh reads and the Quraan and his student reads after him, as many times as necessary until the student perfects his reading and becomes a skilled reciter on his own right. OR The student reads in front of the sheikh and the sheikh corrects him. AND preferably both methods combined together. But it is feared for the student that he may start to forget the rules as time passes by.
© GardensofArabic.com

Ad-Dirayiah
(Through studying) It is to study the rules theoretically then apply them practically on the Quraan. If the reader then forgets some of the rules, he revises the theory that he studied and tries to correct himself. BUT the student must also read in front of a sheikh so that he reaches perfection in his recitation. This way the student has combined between ad-dirayiah and ar-riwayiah .

Merits of Reciting the Quraan

The definition of the Quraan is: It is the words of Allaah that has been

revealed to the Prophet Muhammed ( َ ُّ ٍ‫ع‬ َٚ َ ِ ٍَْٗ ٍ‫ػ‬ َ ٗ ُّ ٌٍ‫ّى ا‬ ٍ‫ص‬ َ ), that has reached us through many reciters, its recitation is worship and it has challenged mankind to produce a surah like its smallest surah.

So reciting Quraan is a way of getting closer to Allah. We have been ordered to read Quraan in a number of ayah in the Quraan. Some of which are: Recite what is sent of the Book by inspiration to thee, and establish regular Prayer: for Prayer restrains from shameful and unjust deeds; and remembrance of Allah is the greatest (thing in life) without doubt. And Allah knows the (deeds) that ye do. [Al-Ankaboot : 45]

… read ye, therefore, of the Quraan as much as may be easy for you [Al-Muzzammil : 20]

As for the reward, the ayah in the Quraan are many, here is one of them: Those who rehearse the Book of Allah, establish regular Prayer, and spend (in Charity) out of what We have provided for them, secretly and openly, hope for a commerce that will never fail: For He will pay them their wages, nay, He will give them (even) more out of His Bounty: for He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Ready to appreciate (service). [Faatir : 29 – 30]

There are also many ahaadeeth (narrations of the Prophet ( ِ ٍَْٗ ٍ‫ػ‬ َ ٗ ُّ ٌٍ‫ّى ا‬ ٍ‫ص‬ َ ُّ َ ٍ‫ع‬ َٚ َ ) ) that encourage reading and studying the Quraan.

Al-Lahin
Definition
Applied definition: It is the mistake and deviation from the correct way
of reading.

Types of Al-Lahin
There are two types of mistakes that can be made when reading the Quraan:

Al-Lahin Al-Khafee

(Hidden mistakes)

They are mistakes that the reader makes in the rules of tajweed. Such mistakes do not change the meaning of the words, however, one will be hold accountable if they miss out a rule knowingly. Such mistakes will only be picked up by those who have learned tajweed. There are two grades to such mistakes: Grade 1 : obvious tajweed mistakes that would be known to those knowledgeable in reading the Quraan with tajweed such as missing out the idgham rule or leaving the ghunnah or medd . Grade 2 : Detailed mistakes that would only be known to those skilled in reading the Quraan. Such as not pronouncing the ghunnah or tafkheem long enough or unwanted repetition of the letter ( ‫) س‬. Also falls into this category not pronouncing the dhammah correctly (in that the lips are not circled). This is especially obvious in the following words: ( ً‫ل‬ ُ ، ُ‫ى‬ ُ ٍٍ‫ ػ‬، ُ‫ز‬ ُ ٔ‫ ) أ‬. Also not pronouncing the kasrah correctly, and this especially obvious in the following words: ( ٗ‫ث‬ ِ ، ُٙ ِ ٍٍ‫ػ‬ َ ).

Islamic Ruling on Al-Lahin Al-Khafee
It is disliked and some say it is forbidden because the Quraan is not being read how it should be. However, it ruling can be divided into two grades: 1. Haraam (forbidden) if an obvious rule is not applied. 2. Makrooh (disliked) if a detailed rule is not applied.

even if the mistake does not change the meaning of the word.: ( ‫ا‬ٛ‫ ) ا٘جط‬or the ‫ ء‬as ‫ ع‬such as ( ‫ا‬ِٕٛ‫ ) ءا‬. Extending the pronunciation of a vowel so that a medd letter pronounced instead of the vowel – such as reading ( ًُ ‫ ) ل‬as ( ُ ‫ي‬ٛ‫ ) ل‬or ( ‫َثه‬ ‫ ) س‬as ( ‫ ) ساثه‬.

Not reading the letter with a ( ّ shaddah) long enough – such as reading ( ‫ّبن ٔؼجذ‬ ٌ‫ ) إ‬as ( ‫َبن‬ ِ ٌ‫ ) إ‬or ( ‫ّخ‬ ‫عج‬ ‫ ) اعُ سثه‬as ( ‫ِخ اعُ سثه‬ ‫ ) عج‬. It is therefore haraam (forbidden) to make such a mistake. Not pronouncing the ‫ اي‬in the moon letters – such as not pronouncing ‫ اي‬in ( ‫ ) اٌجٕخ‬or ( ًّ‫ ) اٌج‬.

and a well known chain of narrators. Pillar Three: The Quraan that one reads must have reached us though the well known correct line of narration. Many scholars have considered some recitations as odd because it reached them through incorrect chain of narrators (even though it was in classical Arabic and in agreement with the Othman script). Every word in the Quraan is an Arabic word. since the Quraan has been revealed in Arabic. Pillar Two: The Quraan script must agree with what was in the Othmaan script. 6. his tongue from idle chat.

Pillar One: The Quraan read must be in Arabic. there are no non Arabic words in it. Keep his stomach free from haraam food. Pillars of Recitation There are three pillars that must be fulfilled for the recitation to be correct and accepted.Tajweed Level 1 recitation of the Quraan is completed at least once a once.

He used to recite the Quraan just like his predecessors did. He was very eloquent in Arabic. Levels of Reading Quraan There are three speeds (levels) of reading the Quraan: At-tahqeeq – It is reading the Quraan slowly. At-Tadweer – It is reading at an intermediate level between at-tahqeeq and al-hadr whilst maintaining the rules of tajweed. At-tahqeeq comes from the meaning “I have achieved this thing” – ie I have known it and perfected it.Tajweed Level 1 the recitation from him. The reader must be careful not to shorten the ghunnah or the medd letters. At-Tarteel – This is the same speed of reading Quraan as at-tahqeeq level except that it for those who have perfected their recitation. This is the teachers level. Al-hadr comes from the meaning of falling from the top to the bottom. He learnt the Qurn from the Assim. lengthening the letters of medd when lengthening is due and shortening when shortening is due. Al-Hadr – It is a swift method of reading the Quraan. Some scholars have considered at-tarteel as a separate level while others put it under at-tahqeeq level. It is giving each letter its rights as to characteristics. This is the learners level. As for Hafs. while contemplating over the meanings. not differing from them. perfectly with sincerity.

There are however other ways of saying al-isti‟atha as was reported by other Quran recitors. However. First Opinion: recommended © GardensofArabic.Tajweed Level 1 ‫َح‬ ‫عبذ‬ َ‫ز‬ ِ ْ‫اإلظ‬ ‫َح‬ ‫عبذ‬ َ‫ز‬ ِ ْ‫( اإلظ‬Al-Isti‟atha) Linguistically : It means seeking refuge and protection. hence it is the best chosen way of saying it. seek Allah‟s protection from Satan the rejected one” [Suratul Nahl: 96]. the scholars differed in regards to it being obligatory or recommended.

Second Opinion: obligatory This is the opinion of Ataa and Ath-Thawree and others. This is because reading Quran is one of the greatest forms of worship and shaitan would try its best efforts to stop the reader. Their evidence is that seeking refuge was mentioned in the form of an order which makes it an obligation to say ‫َح‬ ‫ؼبر‬ َ‫ز‬ ِ ْ‫ اإلع‬.Tajweed Level 1 Most of the scholars and recitors are of the opinion that the ayah in suratul Nahl recommends saying ‫َح‬ ‫ؼبر‬ َ‫ز‬ ِ ْ‫ اإلع‬and this is the preferred opinion.

Also the prophet sometimes did not say ‫َح‬ ‫ؼبر‬ َ‫ز‬ ِ ْ‫اإلع‬. other times when ‫َح‬ ‫ؼبر‬ َ‫ز‬ ِ ْ‫ اإلع‬should be said to be protected from shaitan. It is the opinion of most of the scholars that ‫َح‬ ‫ؼبر‬ َ‫ز‬ ِ ْ‫ اإلع‬should be said before reciting Quran. Also because the prophet was consistent in saying it. Also.

Reason For Applying The Ikhfaa Shafawee Rule The ikhfaa shafawee rule is applied on its letter because the letter ( َ ) and the letter ( ‫ ) ة‬share the same articulation point as well as having many characteristics in common. Thus idgham and idhar would be too difficult to apply. Also it is called ikhfaa shafawee because the articulation point of the letter ( َ ) is the lips (shefetaan). Al-Ikhfaa Ash-Shafawee Letters The ikhfaa shafawee rule has only one letter: ) ‫( ة‬. This ghunnah is a characteristic of the meem. one word ends with meem sakinah and the immediate word after it begins with the letter ) ‫) ( ة‬. There is no difference between the iqlab rule and the ikhfaa shafawee rule when practiced verbally. It does not matter whether this sukoon that is on the meem is part of the make up of the word (sukoon asliyah ) or not (aridha li sukoon ) AND this meem does not have a shaddah on it. How To Apply The Ikhfaa Shafawee Rule On Its Letter When the letter ) ‫ ( ة‬immediately follows meem sakinah in between two words hide this meem by not pressing on its articulation point (the lips). The ikhfaa shafawee appears in the Quran as a meem without a sukoon and the letter after it does not have shaddah on it.

Al-Idgham Ash-Shafawee Letters Its letter is: َ ِ ُ َ َ َ a meem mutaharika i.e. with a ghunnah of two counts long. Sagheeran – a meem sakinah occurs before a meem mutaharika. With ghunnah – because the ghunnah is coming from the second letter. thus this is a complete idgham. It is Idgham – the meem sakinah has been inserted into the meem mutaharika.com . Mithlain – the two letters that have merged together are the same – they have the same articulation point and the same characteristics. Al-Idgham ash-shafawee appears in the Quran as a meem without a sukoon and the second meem has a shaddah on it.
