The memorization of the Quran is facilitated here by letting your eyes help your mind memorize the text.
On every page of this copy of the tajweed Quran, subjects are distinguished by a different background color, with brief overviews of the subject added in the margins. This helps in understanding the sequence of the surah, and increases the awareness and the ability of linking the subjects to the texts for more enhanced memorization.
This Tajweed Quran is in Hafs narration. Allah (swt) ordered us in his holy book to recite the Quran with tajweed. Tajweed is a guide for improving the style of Quranic recitation. It was in this way that the Qur'an was revealed to Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), and it was the manner in which he recited it. Therefore, reciters of the Quran are eager to realize the promise of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh): "Whoever recites the Quran correctly and proficiently will be with the bountiful dutiful writers (the angels of the preserved tablet)."
Based on a practical understanding of phonology, we have color-coded some letters to facilitate the correct recitation of the Holy Quran. This enabled us to classify these letters into three categories to enhance readers' knowledge and help them remember tajweed rules.
- The letters which require expanded vocalization are highlighted in red.
- The letters which require nasalization are highlighted in green.
- The letter ra is highlighted in dark blue, and light blue is used for letters that require qalqala.
- The letters which are written but are not vocalized are highlighted in gray.
The reader will get used to reciting the Quran using the colors easily. By engaging the eye, readers will find themselves applying 24 rules of tajweed with ease and precision while their mind is left free to comprehend the meanings of the Holy Quran.
