UNIQUE TEACHING METHODOLOGY!

Why Choose Respect Qur'an School?

LEVEL 1, 2, 3 AND 4

The four levels of our program lay the foundation for the Qur’an recitation. Students are placed into a level according to their current theoretical knowledge and practical recitation skills. The foundational recitation levels aim to teach all tajweed and makhraj rules and correct pronunciation mistakes.

QUR'ANIC ARABIC

Most of us are able to read the Qur’an in Arabic letters, yet we don’t understand the meaning as we read since we do not know the language. As a result, we read the Qur’an in Arabic letters only for spiritual purposes and without understanding what this book tells us. Respect Qur’an School aims to end this problem by integrating Qur’anic Arabic into its curriculum.

In the 5th level of our school, students are exposed to the basic Qur’anic Arabic knowledge, frequently used words and phrases in the Qur’an with an elementary level of grammar. The focus of this course will solely be on the comprehension skill of the Qur’anic text. Upon completing this course, students will be able to understand the general subject of a random Qu’ranic page and start establishing a personal relationship with the Qur’an and its meaning.

This course is not a complete language course. It only aims to lay the foundational knowledge for the Qur’anic Arabic and is specifically designed to provide the elementary comprehension skills for the Qur’an.

THE ART OF RECITATION

In a hadith narrated by both Bukhari and Muslim, Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: I heard the Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him) saying, “Allah does not listen so attentively to anything as He listens to the recitation of the Qur’an by a Prophet who recites well with a melodious and audible voice.”

In another hadith, again narrated by both Bukhari and Muslim, Al-Bara’ bin `Azib (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: I heard the Prophet (PBUH) reciting Surat Wat-Teen Waz-Zaitun during the `Isha’ prayer. I have never heard anyone reciting it in a more beautiful voice than his.

Based on such narrations and prophetic practices, Muslims have developed a fine tradition of Qur’anic recitation throughout history by integrating melodic modes into their recitation practices. Melodic modes, called maqam in Arabic, such as Nahawand, Saba, Bayati, Hijaz, Kurd, ‘Ajam are well-known forms of intonations and are commonly used by mainstream Qaris all over the Muslim world. In the 6th level of Respect Qur’an School, students will gain basic maqam skills to beautify their recitation, learn voice management, and improve their sense of tonation through the help of an instrument called Oud.
