Murshid al-Qari - Part 1: Simplifying the rules of Tajweed

An introductory work on tajweed for the beginner who is at least familiar with the letters of the Arabic alphabet.It presents the essential theory of tajweed in a manner specially adapted for the novice. Theoretical principles are accompanied by real-life examples yet kept at a bare minimum so as to not cause overload.






Murshid al-Qari, Part 2: Commentary of the Tuhfah al-Atfal by Jamzuri

It is aptly named Aysar al-Aqwal, being a simplified English commentary of the Tuhfah al-Atfal by Jamzuri. The Tuhfah itself is internationally regarded as one of the most authoritative works on the subject of tajweed and consequently studied in all major institutes. Many quraa' do not allow their students to graduate unless and until they have successfully memorised the text of Tuhfah and shown that they understand it correctly.




Murshid al-Qari, Part 3: Commentary of the Jazariyyah

This is the third part in the Murshid al-Qārī series, a commentary on the famous Muqaddimah al-Jazariyyah of Ibn al-Jazarī. I have tried to keep the discussions very simple and basic so that students and readers may easily comprehend the topics discussed. It is of utmost importance that students gain a solid foundation by first mastering book one and two before endeavoring to study this present work.



Asanid Ibn Jazari

The 188-page booklet comprises a collation of the sanads (chains of narration) of Ibn Jazari and an exposition of his contribution to the Sciences of Tajwid and Qira'ah.








'Al-Wajazah' or 'The Essence'

It comprises two works in the field of Tajwid that are probably the most read, studied and taught texts in the field: the Tuhfah al-Atfal of Jamzuri and the al-Muqaddimah al-Jazariyyah of Ibn al-Jazari. It is aimed at the student who wishes to study and receive license (ijazah) to transmit and teach these texts to others.






'Al-Majmu'ah al-Dhahabiyyah' or 'The Golden Collection'

Most students that go to study abroad - in Arab countries - in the hope of recieving ijazah (license) in the Quran for Hafs from `Asim do so via either the tariqs of the Shatibiyyah or the Roudah. This work details the differences in these two tariqs and therefore serves as an invaluable aid to their study.






Fatḥ al-Karīm

Fatḥ al-Karīm, written by one of the most unprecedented scholars of his time, ʿAli ibn Muḥammad al-Dabbāʿ, is a contemporary work. It is an immensely fascinating, readable and holistic work. Its author has taken the gist of many classical works and formed it into a very concise book. The book offers and teaches us - teachers, students and laymen alike - the means to appreciate how to best approach the Qurʾān with the required etiquette and how to derive maximum benefit from its recitation.




Fawā`ide Makkiyyah - Arabic and English Translation

It should be known that to recite the Qur`ān with the rules of Tajwīd is most necessary. If the Qur`ān is not read with Tajwīd then the reciter has erred. Subsequently, if such a mistake is made where one letter is changed to another, a letter is added or omitted, a mistake is made in the vowel signs (harakāt), a sākin is made mutaharrik or a mutaharrik is made sākin, then the reciter is a sinner.




Ghunyah al-Talabah

It is intended to be an introduction to qira'ah yet can easily serve as a remembrancer for the qualified teacher of qira'ah. This is because it is essentially a precis on the theory of qira'ah as presented by Qari Anis Ahmad in his phenomenal al-Fawa'id al-Muhibbiyyah. In addition to the above it also comprises:

A translation of and simple commentary on the introduction (muqaddimah) of the Shatibiyyah, a biography of Qari Anis Ahmad and Imam Shatibi , some samples of sanads obtained by the author to the great Imam and a simple dictionary of technical terms employed by qurra.



The Aspiration of the Perplexed in making Sakt for Hafs ibn Sulaymān

Many students are going abroad to receive ijāzah (licence) in the Qurʾān. The most commonly read narration is that of Ḥafṣ from ʿĀṣim. Generally students get ijāzah for Ḥafṣ via the ṭarīq of the Shāṭibiyyah. However, a number of them have received ijāzah for Ḥafṣ via the ṭarīq of the Rouḍah.
This book details the differences found in this ṭarīq of the Rouḍah whilst comparing it to the ṭarīq of the Shāṭibiyyah.
