Introductory Qur’ān Recitation Program

Introductory Qur’ān Recitation Program Description

Recitation of the Qurʾān as it was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, is at the core of worship of every Muslim. To facilitate the prophetic manner of recitation, Darul Qasim has developed a three-semester introductory Qurʾān recitation program (PCQ101 – PCQ103) that takes the student from recognizing and properly pronouncing Arabic letters to mastering the science of Tajwīd: the rules that govern the science of Qurʾānic recitation.

PCQ101: Qurʾān Reading
This course begins with the learning of the Arabic alphabet. Focus is placed on pronouncing each letter correctly through identifying the subtle differences between each letter’s point of articulation (makhraj) and characteristics (sifāh). By the end of the course students are able to recite the last three chapters of the Qurʾān with Tajwīd.

QUR102: Tajwīd I
This course is designed for those students who already know how to read from the Qurʾān. Focus is placed on pronouncing letters correctly and being introduced to the rules of Tajwīd; the rules that govern the science of reciting the Qurʾān. By the end of the course students will be able to recite the portions of the thirtieth juzʾ of the Qurʾān with tajwīd.

QUR103: Tajwīd II
Intermediate Tajwīd. All general and universal rules of tajwīd are covered. By the end of the course students will be able to recite the twenty-ninth and thirtieth juzʾ of the Qurʾān with tajwīd and will be prepared to begin reciting the Qurʾān as an ʿIbādah.
