Ways To Learn Proper Recitation Of The Quran

Posted on October 26, 2021 by Alim Live

As Quran is written in Arabic and for non-Arabs it’s is difficult to read the Quran. It’s the right of the Holy book to be read beautifully. There are many ways in which one can increase fluency in the recitation of the Quran.

1. Pronunciation and Renewing the Intention Every time

Our Holy book consists of Surahs and Surahs that contain letters and letters, words and words. It all starts with the correct pronunciation of these words. And it can only be done by understanding the sound of letters and words and then repeating them over and over again.

However, it may seem difficult in the beginning and require an effort but one should know the purpose of why he/she wants to learn the proper recitation. The Prophet (saws) encouraged us thus in the following hadith:

“The one who is proficient in the recitation of the Qur’an will be with the honorable and obedient scribes (angels) and he who recites the Qur’an and finds it difficult to recite, doing his best to recite it in the best way possible, will have a double reward.”

2. Try to Learn Tajweed Rules

The term Tajweed means to learn in a better way. It is important when learning to recite the Quran. In short, it refers to the rules regarding good pronunciation.

Moreover, it is said that the language of kings is king of all the languages. Then, what’s Arabic? Isn’t it the language of King, the Almighty? Yes, it is. That’s why it deserves to learn first with proper pronunciation. And reciting Quran with Tajweed gives you inner peace and serenity of heart and mind. And if you ignore Tajweed, then you’re missing the most fundamental and spiritual part of the religion.

3. Intonation: The Rise and Fall of Voice

It is mandatory to learn about intonation while reciting Quran. It guides about when and where to start and stop, or where to increase or decrease the voice. This way the recitation sounds attractive. However, following the proper rules and characteristics can lead to better intonation.

The Messenger of Allah (P.B.U.H) said:

“Religion is sincerity: to Allah, to His Book, to His Messenger, and the leaders of the Muslims and their common folk.”

4. Practice:

As it is said that practice makes a man perfect. So, the same rule applies here, that repeating a task unless one excels in it is the key to success. At Alim Live we have professional teachers who help in practicing the recitation of the Quran.

Practicing the recitation can lead to proper elocution. Being blessed with such a Holy book, we must learn to recite it with respect. And it can only be done with practice, practice, and practice.

Suppose you read 2 pages of the Quran each day. To achieve good recitation, you should pick up a page and keep reciting it each day again and again, until you feel like you’ve improved then you can switch to the next page.

5. Record Your Recitation and Compare

To check mistakes in your recitation, you can record your recitation verse by verse and then compare it with the recitation of any professional on YouTube. This way you’ll be able to know where you need to improve.

Also, you can take guidance from the teachers at our online platform, i.e. Alim Live, Al Quran.

6. Value of the Recitation

Quran is a blessed book and it should be read with respect keeping in mind the rules of Tajweed and several other ways of recitation. This Holy book is loved by Allah and his prophet, so the quality of recitation matters too.

And in a survey, it is visible that those who recited Quran slowly lived a stress-free life while those who studied it in rush were found making loads of mistakes. And making mistakes in Quran’s recitation is equivalent to sin.

7. Hire a Tutor
