Al-Itqaan-Slideshow_PROOF-3-02 EDITED


This is the foundation level course in tajweed. Ideal for those who already have familiarity and some background of basic reading in Arabic but have not studied the science of tajweed. At this level, students improve their recitation and become able to recite fluently by studying and implementing the fundamental rules of tajweed. Students will be expected to memorise and recite the last 20 suwar from the Quran.


Students on the al-Itqaan course are assessed in each lesson informally, and are assessed formally twice a year during the biannual assessment weeks. Winter assessments will consist of oral and written examinations. End of year summer assessment will consist of oral and written examination.

As the course is condensed, students are recommended to revise their class notes and Quran memorisation on a weekly basis. Outside of class, students are recommended to spend a minimum of 1-2 hours of revision time weekly. Students may speak to class teachers for information on specific details regarding the exam format for each subject.
