Narrated Uthman, Prophet Muhammad () said:
'The best among you are those who learn the Qur'an and teach it to others'
(Sahih Al Bukhari vol 6, book 61, no. 545)
Tajweed is the Science of reading Qur'an correctly.
However, having said this, it is recognised that sadly there is a lack of teachers and therefore it is not always possible to study alongside one. If this applies to you, please donít let this be the reason to discourage you from embarking upon this very rewarding goal. The bare minimum should be that we at least start to gain an understanding of the rules and make an effort to self correct our reading through listening to renowned recitors, such as Sheikh Abdullah Basfar, Sheikh Al Husari and Sheikh Al Hudaifi
Whatever happens, do not despair if the rules initially seem too complex, as I can promise you that it will get easier the more you practise.
As little as 15 minutes a day over a period of time will amount to a great deal, and will soon have you 'reading with tajweed ' InshaAllah.
