Learn Quran Kids institute provides classes to learn Quran online with Tajweed. Tajweed تجويد refers to the rules governing pronunciation during recitation of the Quran. Tajweed means to make well, make better, improve. Tajweed is a religious duty when reciting the Quran. If Quran is not read with Tajweed then the meaning of the words can change. If done intentionally is ‘Haram’ and if done un-intentionally is a sin. Hence it is very important for a Muslim to read Quran in the correct way. Below are some of the basics of the Tajweed. When you join ‘Learn Quran Kids’ then you will learn how to read Quran with tajweed Inshallah!
Tajweed by Example
In Arabic the word for ‘eat‘ is ‘Kul’
The word ‘Kul’ starts with the letter ‘kaf’ كَ
The word used for ‘to say‘ is ‘Qul’
The word ‘Qul’ starts with the letter ‘Kaf’ قُ
In Arabic the word used for Dog is ‘Kalb’.
The word ‘Kalb’ starts with the letter ‘kaf’ كَ
The word used for heart in Arabic is ‘Qalb’.
The word ‘Qalb’ starts with the letter ‘Qaf’. قُ
If someone while reciting Quran, reads the word ‘Qalb’ as ‘Kalb’, he has spoken the word ‘Dog’!
“Just one arabic letter changes the meaning altogether!”

Tajweed e Quran Misconceptions
It takes many many years for your kids to read or speak English correctly so why we expect kids to understand Tajweed in just a week!
Just like English language has rules so do we have in Tajweed and one has to learn them but its far simple then learning the rules of English. Unfortunately we focus a lot on our kid’s English pronunciation but very less on their Quranic recitation. How would you feel if your child says ball as ‘boll‘ or knowledge as ‘kanoledge‘ or school as ‘sakool‘ !!
When it comes to Quran, we don’t react likewise!
Then there is also the added pressure put by parents on the teachers of completing the course. So to cover more ground, the teacher teaches fast and hence don’t focus more on the mistakes your kids make while reading Quran.
Just like when you started reading English, the first thing your teacher told you was to know the alphabets of English. Later he explained how to pronounce them. Similarly the first lesson is to understand the alphabets of the language in which Quran was revealed.
