What is Tajweed?
The word Tajweed linguistically means “doing something well”. It comes from the same root letters as the word 'Jayyid' in Arabic (meaning “good”): Jeem, Waw and Daal. It refers to the rules for learning how to recite the Quran. The Quran was revealed with Tajweed, because the angel Jibreel (as) recited the words of Allah (swt) to the Prophet Muhammad (saw) in a certain way and the Prophet (saw) recited it in the manner it was permissible to recite the Quran.
Is it necessary to learn Tajweed?
If a person is not aware of the attributes of each letter of the Quran, there is a possibility that the reciter of the Quran will change the meaning of the words in the Quran recitation. We must strive to give every letter of the Quran its rights and dues, by observing the essential characteristics of each letter of the Quran. The result of doing this would be that we would learn to recite the holy Quran as close to the manner in which the Prophet (saw) recited it in sha Allah.
How can I learn Tajweed online?
Arabic letters have Makhrij (exit point) from the mouth or throat. They also have Sifaat (characteristics). Knowing the Makhraj and Sifaat of each letter is the basis of Tajweed.
