Tajweed Ability And Enabling

After embarking on one of my ''return goals''mashaAllah the return being to the UK, oh maybe i never listed them i had some goals in mind that i developed during my 3yrs as a muhajrah. In the face of my own life there and my happiness and hardships i decided there were things i needed in life to continue and that were going to be etenssil in my survival in this dunniyyah as a muslimah as i can not contemplate a life any other way.

Alhamduillah learning Al Quran fluently was one infact it was top of the list. I enrolled myself on a course at an Islamic College yes in London mashaallah , alhamduilah for the mercy of this. The course is based on a book written by “Tajweed Rules of the
Qur’an: Part One” by Kareema Carol Czerepinski. The course is taught in English and includes coverage of the basic rules of Tajweed in theory and practical application. This for me was Paramount as i tried to learn in Algeria with very able sisters mashaAllah but sadly could not benefit as i had wished due to my own in ability of being able to have a fluent ground in the Classical Arabic language (Arbia Forca) Allah Al must'aan. I have a lot of admiration for this American revert sister Kareema who's chain can be traced back to the Prophet Mohammad, peace be upon him. Qur’anic recitation is taught according to the Islamic tradition. “When we have recited
it, repeat the recitation” (75:18). The Angel Jibreel recited the revelation to the blessed
Prophet Mohammad, peace be upon him, hence we too must, receive the Qur’an and
learn it in this way: from a qualified teacher who is connected in a knowledge chain to
the Prophet Mohammad, peace and blessings be upon him. Students learn through
listening to a qualified Qur’an teacher recite, reciting to the teacher and receiving
corrections from the teacher.
Some of the things we have already covered

Really All praises to Allah, the Lord of the worlds it will be the best £70 you could ever spend. After this level one there s level 2 and also begginers classes.
I have discovered this wonderful site mshaAllah so useful and i can learn from it to re-enforce my studies, its a Tajweed pod cast. If you are interested in learning please you must go look. I found it via umm Hibaat's Quran Blog . I just did the hamzat el wastle lession and it really helped to re-enforce what i have been learning at school if not explain it better. One thing i have learnt as a total struggle in Quran is it needs to be consistent and you need to have a zeal and love to learn inshaAllah. Dua is also good. I hope someone can benifit from this post and make dua we can all strive to learn Al Qur'aan for it to intercede for us on a day when it will really matter ameen.
