Tajweed rules aren’t a one-size-fits-all guide; they consist of an intricate system of pronunciation and articulation instructions that facilitate the rhythmic recitation of the Quran. These rules are diverse, addressing various aspects of Quranic Arabic – from the articulation of individual letters to the elongation of vowels, and from the nuances of nasal sounds to the subtleties of silent and pronounced letters. 

Understanding the Core Tajweed Rules 

Tajweed rules can be broadly categorized into several main groups. Each group, in turn, contains more specific rules, contributing to the multifaceted nature of Tajweed. 

  1. Makharij al-Huroof (Articulation Points of the Letters): This category consists of rules governing the points of articulation for the 29 Arabic letters.
  2. Sifaat al-Huroof (Characteristics of the Letters): These rules specify unique properties of Arabic letters, some of which may change based on the letter’s context within a word.
  3. Ahkaam al-Nun al-Saakinah wa al-Tanween (Rules of the Non-Vocalized Nūn and Nunation): This section includes the four primary rules of Ikhfaa (hiding), Idghaam (merging), Iqlaab (conversion),
    and Izhaar (clear pronunciation).
  4. Also Ahkaam al-Meem al-Saakinah (Rules of the Non-Vocalized Meem):
    It primarily consists of the rules of Ikhfaa Shafawi and Idgham Shafawi.
  5. Ahkam al-Madd (Rules of Lengthening): These rules involve elongating vowel sounds,
    and it includes Natural Madd, Necessary Madd, and Permissible Madd.
  6. Waqf wal Ibtidaa (Stopping and Starting): These rules guide when to pause and start during Quranic recitation.
