The Prophet (peace be upon him) said that those who recite the Qur'an fluently will be in the company of the angels. He spent his 23 years as a Prophet reciting and teaching the Qur'an. Reciting the Qur'an is not just about the words, but the rules of recitation known as tajweed. Join Shaykh Ahsan Hanif and learn the essential rules in three simple lessons with practice.

“The one who recites the Qur’an fluently is with the noble angels…”

It's the Sunnah

Reciting the Qur’an with tajweed is to read the Qur’an as the Prophet (peace be upon him) recited it, and the way it was taught to the Companions.

The three theory sessions have been designed to focus on the most important and essential tajweed rules. Knowing these rules will help you implement most of tajweed.
