In a hadith from the Prophet (saw), we learn that there is reward for every letter that we read in the Quran. In this class, students will work on improving their recitation of the Quran, earning rewards in the process insha'Allah. The course will be conducted as an online recitation circle, meaning that students will recite individually in turn and receive feedback from the teacher. The class is aimed at adult students, both men and women, who already know how to read Arabic phonetically but do not have significant knowledge of the rules of Quranic recitation (tajweed). Classes will focus on the short surahs from the end of the Quran that are usually recited in prayer. Students will need a working microphone and webcam.
