Description :

Tuhfatul Atfaal is the famous poem written by Imam Al-Jamzuri for those who wish to learn Tajweed (the rules of Qur'anic recitation). It’s shorter and easier than other similar texts. This publication is the first English translation and has been printed to a high standard.

"The benefits of reciting the pure words of Allah, subhanahu wa ta'ala, are so great that no individual is able to compile them in any one book. Hence, only a few are mentioned below as a reminder of the bounties of Allah upon those who recite his glorious Qur'an.

The Prophet, ?, said;

Whosoever reads a letter from the Book of Allah, he will receive a reward. That reward is then (multiplied) ten-fold. I do not say Alif-Laam-Meem is one letter, but Alif is a letter, Laam is a separate letter and Meem is another letter. [Tirmidhi]. 

The work features :

   *** Combination of Two Classical Texts,
   *** Illustrations and Diagrams to Facilitate Understanding,
   *** Explanation of Makharij ul Huruf and Sifaat,
   *** Explanations of Seven Ahruf,
   *** Introduction to the Seven Imams of Qira'ah,
   *** Exercise with Answers
   *** Forty Ahadith on the Excellence of the Qur'an.

Ilm ut Tajweed is the science that deals with the pronunciation of Arabic letters from their correct Makhaarij along with their correct Sifaat. Its purpose is to make a person proficient in correct Qur'an recitation without mistakes. Learning its rules and principles is Fardh Kifayah, but its application in Qur'an recitation is Fardh 'Ain."
