learning Arabic Letters and sounds .

In any languages there are letters and sounds , You don’t need to memorize all of 28 Arabic letters you just need figure out and define sound of letters , it’s so enough , And concentrate in different sounds of your language.

For examples:

1- ( ع ) in English language it’s not found, so it’s difficult to pronounce it without many many practices.

2-letter ( ح) : you can’t find it in Russian or English language , Some non Arabic speakers make mixing between ( حـ or H in English) But ( ح) has different sound.

Learn it and practice practice practice.

Learning Arabic Vowels .

We have two types of letters:

1- vowels ( fatHah , damma , kasra )

2- Non vowels ( Sakien letters)

Fathah like (A)in English for example: بَ تَ جَ   مَ

Damma like (O)in English for example :  جُ ىُ شُ طُ

Kasra like (E)in English  for example : رِ ءِ ضِ فِ

–> Fathah , Damma , Kasra it’s called (Haraka)

So move your mouth according to ( Haraka ) above letter.

Non vowels ( Sakien letters) : Like  لْ  ةْ   لْا  زْ مْ  

Don’t move your mouth anyway just pronounce letter from its articulation point.

Try say : أَبْ – بَابْ – كُتُبْ 


How to read Complete Arabic words.

When you finish Arabic letters and vowels it is not enough , You need to mix it together to build words then build sentences.

in the first you need person help you to pronounce it correctly , You can find it in internet like Arabic or Quran teachers, I prefer Arabic native speakers but if you can’t , it’s ok but don’t depend on your self , Truth me you will make mistakes.

Examples: فَلَمَّا دَخَلُواْ على يُوسُفَ  – وَقَالَ ادْخُلُوا مِصْرَ – وَلَٰكِنَّ أَكْثَرَ النَّاسِ لَا يُؤْمِنُونَ

Noon Sakinah , Tanween and Meem Sakinah Rules.

After finishing previous there steps you can read Quran but still not enough because The prophet Muhammad (PBUH) taught us specific method for Reading The holy Quran.

We should follow him and imitate him to get reward and deserve this Hadith (مَن قرأ حرفًا من كتاب الله فله به حسنة، والحسنة بعشر أمثالها، لا أقول: ألف لام ميم حرف، ألفٌ حرفٌ، ولامٌ حرفٌ، وميمٌ حرفٌ)

Whoever recites a letter from the Book of Allah, he will be credited with a good deed, and a good deed gets a ten-fold reward. I do not say that Alif-Lam-Mim is one letter, but Alif is a letter, Lam is a letter and Mim is a letter.

Noon or Meem Sakinah: it is Noon without vowels.    ن or ن ْ- مْ or م

Tanween:- Is actually a noon Saakinah which comes at the end of the nouns. It is pronounced but not written as Noon Saakinah.

We not here to explain its rules but quite enough to know the meaning Look at this lesson here.

Mudood Rules.

Second important section in Tajweed science is Mudood lessons , Look at this Hadith  (سُئِلَ أنَسٌ: كيفَ كَانَتْ قِرَاءَةُ النَّبيِّ صلَّى اللهُ عليه وسلَّم؟ فَقالَ: كَانَتْ مَدًّا، ثُمَّ قَرَأَ: {بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ} [الفاتحة: 1]؛ يَمُدُّ بـ{بِسْمِ اللَّهِ}، ويَمُدُّ بـ{الرَّحْمَنِ}، ويَمُدُّ بـ{الرَّحِيمِ}.)

So this is one of evidence of Maad rules in Tajweed and should take care of it .

We have three letters of Maad: ((  ا  or و  or ى ) )

Makharij and Sifaat. المخارج والصفات

In my opinion The Makharij and Sifaat of the Letters is one of important to know it it is like pillars of Quran reading.

The reason of learning Makharij and Sifaat to it that differentiates that specific letter from other letters.

For instance : letter (ت) and letter (ط) comes or Articulated from the same place which is tip of tongue with top palate.

How can you know differ between them without studying Sifaat of letters. because (ط) is heavy letter (Tafkheem) but (ت) is light letter (Tarqeeq).

Other instance :

As you know letters of (ح – ع – ض) these letters hard to pronounce it for non Arabic speakers because you will not find it in English language for example.

If you know Makhraj of letters with more practice you will succeed to pronounce it so well .

Finally, Don’t forget make Dua for me and my father Imeen.
