Qira’at or recitation is the reading of the Holy Quran correctly and melodiously. In view of its importance, Allah Almighty has instructed us to read the Quran with proper pauses. It is essential to understand the basic principles of Tajwid to learn the art of Qira’at.

In this course, the students are taught the rules of Tajwid and are drilled in recitation with Tarteel (pleasant pauses). After going through this course, the students become able to recite the Holy Quran with correct Makharij and pronunciation.
