Beginner Quran Recitation Workshop: Starting October 2019 (view post for details)


Beginner Quran Recitation Workshop

It’s never too late to start reading The Holy Quran. We come from different paths and experiences in life. Some of us may be lucky and born in a family that practise Islam strongly while there are many others like ourselves that do not have such background and we wish to know more about The Holy Quraan and want to be able to read and recite The Holy Quran.

While there are others who have learnt and read The Holy Quran but because of influences, they’ve stopped learning and they’ve got lost along the way and wish to start again from the beginning.

NOW you have a great opportunity to start!

This is a course designed for Youth, Adults and Reverts who wish to learn to read and recite The Holy Quran from Scratch.

Course outline:

  • Starts from the alphabet, teaching the sounds, vowels.
  • Progressively moves toward constructing words, and ultimately complete ayaat (verses) of The Holy Quran

This course is the 1st Level of a comprehensive modular programme grooming oneself to be learners and teachers of The Holy Quran among your loved ones.

The importance of understanding the Quran

The importance of understanding the Quran

The Quran has been described by Muslim scholars in both poetry and prose as an ocean without shores. This is because scholars do not get tired of its study. Every examination of its verses produces new understandings previously hidden from discovery.

The Qurān speaks to the unsophisticated just as it speaks to the brilliant. Each walk away with a valid understanding peculiar to their level of education and grasp. No individual, nation or even humanity at large develops their knowledge base except that they discover new meanings to the Qurān inspired by these advancements.

The Qurān never lags behind and instead stays on par with the individual. It is, in fact, always ahead of us and waiting for us to catch up so that we can enter new dimensions of consciousness. As such, when one enters the medium of the Qurān, one has entered an ocean of infinite development and discovery, the pleasures of which will never come to an end.

The Qurān is the constitution of all Muslims and their guidebook through life, and so they are all required to be acquainted with its basic message and directives. This is only achievable via regular contact with the Quran such as that made during its recital, study, practice or propagation.

To do otherwise is to have abandoned the Qurān and the lifestyle that it calls towards.
