:D brother!

 

Your salutations, please! :D

 

Tajweed is basically the correct pronunciation and delivery of the text. If Arabic is not a language you know, and you do not recite with tajweed, there is every likelihood that what you are reciting cannot be understood by a person who knows Arabic. Furthermore, there are words that are very similar, and incorrect recitation can alter the meaning.

 

When you perform salah, or read the Qur'an, can you afford that?

 

It takes some effort and time to learn tajweed. I would recommend your learning it with a qari.

 

Wassalam

Of course it's ok to recite the Quran w/o using the rules of tajweed. Let's say for example that you are reading the Quran just to read and get closer to Allah, then in this case you will NOT have to use tajweed. However, if you would like to lead prayer, then you will have to use tajweed b/c this is the sunnah of the prophet.

:D warahmatullahi wabarakatuh,

 

Sister/Brother who informed you that? "And read the Quran in slow, measured rhythmic tone. Verily, We have revealed an Arabic Quran. Those people whom We have given the Book, recite it the way it should be recited. They are the ones who believe in it..." (Qur'an 2:121).

 

People assume that tajweed means doing it in a 'singing' tone or sounding like Sheikh Shuraim/Sudais. Tajweed deals with the correct pronounciation and thus it is compulsory that every muslim must read the Qur'an with the correct pronounciation because with arabic if you change a madd to something else or change a letter the meaning can change. All you have to do is read the Qur'an like it should be read and that is it.

 

Wa Allahu'Alim

The Importance of Tajweed

 

What is Tajweed?

 

The word Tajweed linguistically means ‘proficiency’ or ‘doing something well’. It comes from the same root letters as the word ‘Jayyid’ in Arabic (meaning ‘good’): Jeem, Waw and Daal. When applied to the Qur’an, it means giving every letter of the Qur’an its rights and dues of characteristics when we recite the Qur’an and observing the rules that apply to those letters in different situations. We give the letters their rights by observing the essential characteristics of each letter that never leave it. And we give them their dues by observing the characteristics of each letter that are present in them some of the time and not present at other times.

 

The Qur’an was revealed with Tajweed rules applied to it. In other words, when the angel Jibreel ((AS)) recited the words of Allah to the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) he recited them in a certain way and he showed the Prophet (SAW) the ways in which it was permissible to recite the Qur’an. So it is upon us to observe those rules so that we recite it in the way it was revealed.

 

At the time of the Prophet (SAW) there was no need for people to study Tajweed because they talked with what is now known as Tajweed so it was natural for them. When the Arabs started mixing with the non-Arabs as Islam spread, mistakes in Qur’an recitation started appearing, so the scholars had to record the rules. Now, because the everyday Arabic that Arabs speak has changed so much from the Classical Arabic with which the Qur’an was revealed, even Arabs have to study Tajweed.

 

The purpose of Tajweed

The Qur’an is the word of Allah, and its every syllable is from Allah. Its recitation must be taken very seriously. The purpose of the Science of Tajweed in essence is to make the reciter proficient in reciting the Qur’an, observing the correct pronunciation of every letter with the rulings and characteristics which apply to each letter, without any exaggeration or deficiency. And so through this the reciter can recite the Qur’an upon the way of the Prophet (SAW) who received it from Jibreel who received it from Allah (SWT) in the Classical Arabic dialect that it came down in.

 

Arabic letters each have a Makhraj – an exit or articulation point - in the mouth or throat from which they originate and they also each have Sifaat – attributes, or characteristics - particular to them. Knowing the Makhraj and Sifaat of each letter is an important part of Tajweed. Sometimes two letters have very similar exits which makes mixing them up easy. So if a person does not know the attributes of each letter there is a danger that he will change the meaning of the words in Qur’an recitation. Observing the rules of Tajweed in reciting protects the reciter from making mistakes in reciting the Qur’an
