Ijaza in Tajweed

Name of Course: Tajweed Level 4 Ijaza in Tajweed

Duration of Course: 30 Weeks, one day per week

Number of hours a week: 2 hours

Course Fees: £245


This course is designed to train learners to become competent teachers of Tajweed.

This is an advance course and therefore learners wishing to enrol on this course must have prior knowledge of Tawjeed, and a good degree of reciting the Qur’an. This course will focus on the study of a text called Aysar al-Aqwal Sharh Tuhfatul Atfal.

The text is in Arabic with English translation. It is a translation and explanation of one

of the most accepted and taught texts in the field of Tajweed, the Tuḥfah of Jamzūrī.

In fact, many teachers do not qualify their students until they have memorised and understood this text.

Any person seeking to master this field will find it necessary to study Arabic texts such as these. The book has been written specifically for the non-Arabic speaking person. Thus, after citing the text under the heading, TEXT, a heading,

VOCABULARY, will follow in which every word in the line will be translated.

The student should strive to learn the translation of the individual words because it is only translated once. If the same word appears in another line, it will not be translated again, assuming that the student had already memorised it when it appeared the first time.

You have most likely studied the rules, like nūn sākinah and tanwīn, mīm sākinah and madd. This book will serve as a revision of those rules for the student. At the same time, concentration should be focused on the text and its memorisation since its rules have already been dealt with previously.

Discussions, which have not been touched on previously, will be considered in a simple manner for the beginner avoiding different opinions and views. The object is for the student to have a strong basis before embarking on the more complicated issues in the field.

What Can I Expect to Gain from this Course?

Learners at can expect to gain a deep understanding of the pronunciation of the Arabic alphabets and developed an advanced set of terminologies to describe the different categories letters fall under. Learners should have an improvement in their pronunciation when reciting the Qur’an. Learners should developed an advanced understanding of the rule of Tajweed and its practical application. Learners should have a combination of two skills to wit, a deep understanding of the pronunciation of the Arabic alphabets and rules of Tajweed both skills should applied when reading the Qur’an. This should give you confidence to be able to teach Qur’an to others.
