Reciting Quran without Tajweed



In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.

Tajweed is the science of reciting the Qur’an in accordance with the established rules and regulations of pronunciation so each letter is recited properly and correctly.

All the Ulamaas agree that it is compulsory to recite the Qur’an with Tajweed. 

Allah subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He) in the Holy Qur’an has said ‘And recite the Qur’an with Tarteel…’ (Surah Al-Muzzammill  v.4).  Tartill basically signifies that the letters and the words must be pronounced clearly and distinctly  (Maariful Quran p.616 v.8)

The one who does not recite the Qur’an properly with tajweed and the correct pronunciation, then the Prophet of Allah ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) said ‘ There are many are who recite the Qur’an while the Qur’an curses them’.
