Qur'anic Arabic (Tajwid) Course

This course aims to introduce students to the art of Qur’anic recitation (Tajwid) through an applied approach. Designed to allow students to progress at their own pace, emphasis is placed on accurate pronunciation of consonants and the varying vowels, learning and observing the properties of letters and their conjunction, as well as rules of extension (madd) and stopping (waqf). The theoretical learning is reinforced through extensive group and individual practice.

By the end of the course, students will have acquired an intermediate level understanding of the rules of Tajwid, good practice in the accurate application of these rules, and improved confidence in reciting the Qur’an correctly.

Students are required to be familiar with the Arabic alphabet and script. Course materials, which will be provided upon registration, include a copy of Juz’ Amma (preferably colour-coded for Tajwid) and the course textbook, ‘Read’ (Learning Roots, 2012). 

Classes are held on Tuesdays from 5.30pm to 7.00pm for 25 weeks over three terms per year.

The next course will start on Tuesday, 15 October 2019. Its term dates are as follows:

Tuesday, 15 October 2019 – Tuesday, 17 December 2019
Tuesday, 21 January 2020 – Tuesday, 24 March 2020
