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.
The course runs for 24 weeks over three terms in two parallel sessions: Wednesday evenings (5:45pm to 7:45pm) and Saturday mornings (9:30am to 11:30am). Students have the option to indicate their preferred session during registration.
Course Instructors: Shaykh Thaqib Mahmood (Wednesday session) and Shaykh Muhammad Sahil (Saturday session)
Course Venue: Classes take place at the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies on Marston Road.
No charge is made for the course, but students are required to register for a place.
Applications to this course are now CLOSED, and will open again in August 2021.
