Throughout years of teaching Qur'an and Arabic to students ranging from Kindergarten through the college level, it became apparent that there was a need for a consistent, well-designed curriculum to teach students how to recite the Qur'an. The compilation and publication of this work and its supplemental materials aim to fulfill that need. This is an edition for English-speaking children and adults.
Students who successfully complete a program of study following the methodology used in this book are able to recite the Qur'an with the proper pronunciation and tajweed in a short period of time. This methodology consistently produces excellent results and success in students of all ages and levels, whether it is a 4-year-old child, or an illiterate 60-year-old man who wants to learn how to read the Qur'an with correct tajweed.
This edition also provides an addendum of helpful materials, including a glossary of terms and a chart explaining the origin of articulation of the Arabic letters.
The Qur'anic words/texts have been hand-written by the renowned Damascene calligrapher Shaykh Uthman Taha, who also beautifully penned the internationally distributed Mushaf al-Madinah. All the words contained in this book are from the 30th part of the Qur’an.
