The SimplyTajweed Course Class 1; Makharij-Al-Huroof (Articulation Points of the Letters):
In brief, tajweed is the correct and specific pronunciation of the letters of the Arabic Alphabet, and the rules as to how to recite.
Regardless of your age, recitation ability and first language, SimplyTajweed is your platform to start or continue your tajweed journey. This course has been meticulously designed in a way that is suitable for those of any level of tajweed and recitation ability. It does rely on you having a very basic understanding of the Arabic language and so just being aware of the alphabet and how to join a few letters together. If you’ve never come across Arabic before however, don’t worry at all. This course is suitable for you too, but it would be wise to supplement it with a very basic beginner Arabic course.
My vision is to deliver this course in a very personalised, digestible and engaging manner, and to once and for all break the misconception of complexity which deters many off trying to learn tajweed.
In this 1st of initially 5 comprehensive classes, we cover:
- Short and long vowels and how to correctly pronounce them.
- The letters of the Arabic Alphabet and their articulation points, which are dispersed over 5 major areas, and how to specifically and easily pronounce each letter.
- Common errors with pronouncing each letter and how to avoid them.
Mastering the pronunciation of the various letters is a 2 step process. Step 1 is being aware of and fully understanding the theory and Step 2 is practice, practice, practice! By the end of this class you will have hopefully fully completed Step 1, and the class project will allow you to put Step 2 into action instantly!
I hope you find this 1st class useful and of benefit! Your feedback will be much appreciated! I’m keen that you maximise how much you take out of this class, and so if you have any questions at all, please feel free to ask away either here or on our Instagram (@simplytajweed)!
