Tajweed Rules of the Qur'an

أحكام التجويد القرآن

This is an English text used by the American Qur'an Institute for students mastering Tajweed written by Sheikh Ayman Swayd and translated by Ustadha Kareema Czerepinski. Correct understanding and application of the content within this book is necessary to attain ijaazah in a recitation.


Sheikh Ayman Swayd

An expert in Tajweed, Sheikh Ayman Swayd has plenty of content on YouTube to improve articulation of letters or reinforce tajweed rulings. In the first video, he teaches core concepts associated with Surat al-Fatihah, while in the second video he explains the articulation point of the letter ض. While his videos are in Arabic, they still provide great benefit for English speakers.



Reciters

The American Qur'an Institute recommends listening to reciters like Sheikh Mahmoud Khalil Al-Hussary or Sheikh Al-Minshawi to improve your tajweed. Pay attention to not only the audio, but focus on the movement of Sheikh Al-Hussary's lips as he reads Surat Maryam!
