Tajweed, the beautiful art of reciting the Quran, is a journey of precision, rhythm, and profound spirituality. Often, the complex linguistic nature of Arabic can present challenges for learners. To aid in this journey, Quran Light offers an innovative approach: an illustrated guide to Tajweed rules. By pairing traditional instruction with vivid visual cues, our learners can grasp the subtleties of Tajweed in an engaging, accessible, and memorable way.
The Power of Visual Learning in Tajweed
Visual aids have proven to be effective learning tools, simplifying complex information and enhancing retention. When learning Tajweed, pictures can help illustrate the points of articulation (Makharij), characteristics of the Arabic letters (Sifaat), and the application of various Tajweed rules.
Makharij (Points of Articulation) Illustrated:
Al-Jawf (The Oral Cavity)
The deepest part of the throat, Al-Jawf is the point of articulation for the Arabic letters ال (Alif), و (Waw), and ي (Yaa) when they have a Maddah (elongation) sign. Visual aids illustrate the positioning of these sounds within the throat, giving learners a clear image of where and how these sounds are produced.
Al-Halq (The Throat)
The throat is responsible for producing the sounds of six Arabic letters: أ (Hamza), ح (Ha’), خ (Kha’), ع (‘Ain), غ (Ghain), and هـ (Ha). Diagrams depicting the throat’s cross-section can effectively show the distinct places these sounds originate from.
Sifaat (Characteristics of Arabic Letters) Illustrated
Visual aids can also help learners grasp the attributes of each Arabic letter. For example, the letter ض (Daad) is known for its characteristic of ‘Isti’laa’ (elevation), which requires the tongue to rise towards the roof of the mouth. A diagram showcasing the tongue’s position while pronouncing this letter can be particularly helpful.
Nun Sakinah and Tanween Rules Visualized
In the Nun Sakinah and Tanween rules, visual cues can depict how the ‘n’ sound blends, hides, or changes based on the letter that follows it. Infographics or illustrated diagrams can effectively demonstrate these rules, such as Ikhfa (hiding), Idgham (merging), Iqlab (changing), and Izhar (clear pronunciation).

Meem Sakinah and Madd Rules Visualized
Understanding the rules of Meem Sakinah and Madd can be significantly enhanced with the use of pictures and diagrams.
Meem Sakinah Rules
The rules of Meem Sakinah apply when a ‘meem’ is accompanied by a sukoon. Visual aids can clearly demonstrate the two main rules – Ikhfaa Shafawi and Idgham Shafawi. For example, a color-coded chart can indicate which letters following a Meem Sakinah will cause a hidden ‘meem’ sound (Ikhfaa Shafawi) or a merging ‘meem’ sound (Idgham Shafawi).
Madd (Lengthening) Rules
Understanding the Madd rules is crucial to maintain the harmony and rhythm of the Quranic recitation. Visual guides can help learners identify the Madd symbols and understand the instances for their application, which include Natural Madd, Necessary Madd, and Permissible Madd.
