This class will serve as an introductory course in the science of Tajwid and Qur’anic recitation.

In addition to covering rules, students will practice reading in class and as homework.


Students must be able to read the Qur’an in Arabic with some fluidity; and recognize and know the names of Arabic letters and vowels. (However, understanding Arabic is not necessary.) Please be prepared to take notes; paper is recommended. Please also bring a copy of the Quran in Arabic script that you can easily read. You will also be required to practice reading at home regularly.
