Muslims believe that God’s ultimate holy scripture, the Quran, was given to Muhammad, God’s final Prophet, roughly 1400 years ago. Because it has not been modified or twisted in the last 1400 years, the Quran is a timeless wonder of this Prophet of God. According to the Quran alone, God has shielded it from any tampering. 1 It is a wonder of fluency and elegance because it is the very word of God. For Muslims, learning to read & memorize the Quran is essential, as it includes the rules and laws of Islam and a wealth of wisdom, stories, parables, and words of encouragement for Muslims and cautions for non-Muslims. According to the Prophet Muhammad and his family’s narrations, there are numerous advantages and rewards to studying the Quran in its native Arabic. This is the language in which it was first revealed. Therefore it makes sense. Reading the Quran through studying its text is also a good idea. Another reason to memorize the Quran is that Muslims must recite a certain number of verses from the Quran each day during their daily prayers.

How to Learn Quran?
With the help of a Master Sheikh,
Muhammad PBUH received the revelation from Angel Jibreel, whom Allah SWT sent. As a result, when learning the Qur’an, it is highly advised that you first listen to it being read aloud by an expert before reading it out in front of them so that they can correct your faults. Without an instructor or mentor to help you enhance your reciting, you won’t be fluent in the Quran. Using audios is a great way to improve your skills, but it does not guarantee that you will correctly understand all of the points of pronunciation and other Tajweed regulations. A severe mistake, such as replacing one vowel and memorizing it that way, is also possible. If you don’t repeat your attempt, it will be impossible to fix it later.
Tutoring from a Quranic Scholar on Tajweed
As previously noted, numerous advantages can be gained from studying the Quran with a professional tutor. A competent Quran instructor will guide you through the Tajweed guidelines to read the Quran properly in Arabic. For example, even if you’re not Arab, you can practise Arabic letter pronunciation by learning the proper articulation places and mannerisms for each letter. You’ll also be able to improve your recitation skills by becoming familiar with the laws of non-voweled Noon, non-voweled Meem, or extending varieties of recitation called “Mudood.” You’ll be able to recite the Quran correctly if you’re familiar with the signals of pauses or stops in the Quran. For example, if you stop your recital in the wrong spot, the meaning can be completely altered.
The Quran should be studied and practised daily.
If your recital skill level is intermediate, choose an appropriate number of Ayat, listen to them all at once, then stop and repeat just after Sheikh keeping your eyes closed in the Mushaf. You can choose how many times you want to replay a video on some sites. Listening helps you learn and improve your overall listening skills. You’ll also be doing good actions by listening to the Quran, a form of prayer.
Make an effort to comprehend the meaning.
You’ll need someone to provide you with an explanation of the Quran’s meanings. You can select the translation that best suits your needs. Make sure to seek out the advice of qualified Quran experts whenever you uncover an interpretation in the Quran that you are unsure of.
As the saying goes, “there’s no gain without suffering,” and this life is constructed on the principle that you must work hard to achieve success. Taking time to study the Quran is among the noblest aims that one can strive towards. If you’re not Arab or don’t know Arabic, don’t be fooled into thinking you can learn Quran recitation in a week or even a month. If you follow the advice in the preceding paragraphs, you will undoubtedly see progress.
