Guidelines for Tajweed

Beginners (Year 7 and above – starting at age 12/13)
Two rules of tajweed will be taught once a month on Thursdays during the Islamic Studies class.
All beginners follow the ‘Read and Repeat’ procedure which is simply listening to the class teacher and repeating their lesson daily. As students’ progress through the Qaida, new letters, the harakaat, the makhaarij and new rules are introduced verbally.

Once a student has completed the Safar Qaida, they will then progress onto the Juz ’Amma and then the Quran. Whilst reciting the Juz ’Amma with the teacher, tajweed rules will be implemented within the recitation in three steps as stated below. The class teacher will ensure when the student recites their lesson, that each rule is implemented and recorded, ensuring they eventually work through the all the steps until the student can independently recite the Quran with full tajweed, Insh’Allah.

When teachers listen to the Quran lesson, it is essential that the student is tested on certain ayahs daily and questioned about the tajweed rule implemented. In this way, the student’s recitation is tested in addition to the tajweed rules.


Measuring success.
The previous generation has done most of the hard work so that the coming generations can focus on education, providing guidance to others and becoming a benefit to society.
