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.
It is aptly named Aysar al-Aqwal, being a simplified English commentary of the Tuḥfah al-Aṭfal by Jamzuri. The Tuḥfah 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.
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.
