Recitation of the Holy Qur’an is highly recommended.
Allah (SWT) says in Surah al-Muzzammil:
وَرَتِّلِ الْقُرْءانَ تَرْتِيلاً
And recite the Qur’an clearly (with correct pronunciation of letters and applying the rules of stopping including distinct and organised melodies) (73:4).
Our Learn Qur’an course is designed to teach the correct recitation of the Holy Qur’an, and is open to both adults and children aged 9+. It is a requirement that you can already read Arabic to be able to enrol in these courses.
We currently have two levels on this course.
Tajweed Level 1
This level is for non fluent Arabic reciters who need to learn the correct pronunciation of the Arabic alphabet, and the basic rules of recitation.
Tajweed Level 2
This level is for fluent Arabic reciters who need to learn correct pronunciation and the basic rules of recitation.
Our children’s course currently has one level for beginners and is for children of all levels of ability. The class is subject to being split in abilities if required.
All courses have the same syllabus but will be taught at different paces in accordance to level of ability. Students will go through the beginners book to acquire knowledge and gain fluency in correct pronunciation of the alphabet. This will be followed by learning rules of recitation from the Tajweed 1 book which will include both theory and practice in order to work towards implementing such rules when reading the Qur’an.
Lessons take place online and are hourly group classes, held once a week for a duration of 3 terms. Each term runs for 13 weeks and consists of Autumn, Spring and Summer. Our terms usually start in September, January and May, so when you enrol, you’ll be starting at the beginning of the new term.
Our classes are currently running on the following dates. Once these classes are fully booked, we will open new classes and inform you of the dates.
