Quran Recitation for Beginners
‘If the mankind and the jinn were together to produce the like of this Quran, they could not produce the like thereof, even if they helped one another’
[Quran Al-Israa’ 17:88]
Quran is the holy book of the Muslims and it was revealed to Prophet Muhammad (SAW) more than 1400 years ago by Allah (SWT) and was sent as guidance towards all of humanity. As it is evident in the mentioned ayah, the Quran is a very unique book. It is a miracle in itself for it has remained in its original form since the day it was revealed. As such it is the duty of every Muslim to recite and follow the guidance of the Quran that has been sent as mercy to mankind. Quran was revealed in the Arabic language and it is necessary to read it in Arabic since this language has many linguistic complexities that bring out the in depth meaning of the words of Allah (SWT).
Learning Quran for beginners or those who have converted or not of Arabic decent can be an overwhelming task. It is not doubt that learning an entire new language is not easy which is why it is always advised to begin learning the Quran at a younger age for Muslims. The Quran is a sacred book and thus it is obligatory for all those who recite it especially Muslims to show it a certain level of respect. The best way to respect the words of Allah (SWT) is to read them with a melodious voice with proper pronounciation, for this one must learn Quran recitation. In most Muslim countries and areas there are institutes and religious centers like mosques that provide many opportunities that make learning Quran for beginners easier. For those who do not have access to such facilities can join an online Quran academy that offers them Islamic knowledge.
