PDF: Learn how to read Holy Quran
This book is designed for beginners who are eager to read Al-Quran via its Arabic Uthmani script. It is a step-by-step guide for learning to read the Quranic script. The learners are encouraged to engage a teacher to guide them through this book Inshallah. After completing this book, the learner is encouraged to upgrade to the Book of Tajweed “Reach the Goal via Tajweed Rules” to learn about Rules of Quran Recitation.
Using the Uthmani Script This book is one of few books that present all the Quranic words in their original script (from Madinah Mushaf) which is the Uthmani script.
One thing that I can relate from my own experience in teaching Quran-reading is that it is much simpler to read the Uthmani script because of the system of signs that is only found in the Uthmani script. Throughout my experiences in teaching Quran, I noticed how difficult it is for those students who have been reading other scripts to read the Uthmani script because of differences in the writing, style and system of signs. Also, the Uthmani script is gaining more popularity throughout the muslim world with the widespread and more generous distribution of copies in Madinah Mushaf.
The system of signs (vowels) in this script conforms to the way the Quran should be recited and makes understanding and following the rules of Tajweed very natural. Initially, this script may appear difficult but in the end it provides greater clarity and precision.
This book can be used together with “learn to write Arabic-Part I & II”. It is worth stressing the importance of learning to write the Arabic script during learning reading. This is a necessary skill in its own right as a basis for further study of Arabic language. Writing also helps tremendously in the process of mastering the reading of the script, and for that reason, reading and writing should proceed together.
With the purpose of building the reading skill I have relied heavily on the mere reading from the Uthmani script without bringing in any of the Tajweed rules. Learning the rules of recitation can be the next goal and the learner will find the author’s other book “Reach the goal via Tajweed rules” very useful.
May Allah bless this effort to contribute to the more widespread and continued reading of the Holy Quran. I also pray that through this work many will take on themselves the great task of learning Arabic as a language with a sole purpose to understand Allah’s Words.
