Alislam.org provides these sermons every friday via this podcast in different languages and formats for free.
These podcasts are designed specifically for English speakers who want to learn tajweed. It will also assist those who do not have the chance to meet a sheikh or qari in their local area, by assisting them to seek this sacred knowledge of Quran and tajweed. Given that there are approximately 20 million Muslims in the English speaking world, this is a useful resource to bring this sacred knowledge to those who cannot find access to sheikhs. The podcasts are a series of short, engaging lectures, going through the rules of Arabic alphabet, makharij (articulation points), sifaat (qualities of letters), waqf (rule stopping and pausing) rasm (Orthography relating to recitation of certain words). There will also be some elaboration on the meaning of tajweed, the history of it (including the biography of Imam Hafs and â€˜Asim) and finally, a brief summary on the work of Imam Al-Jazari and ImamAl-Shatibirhm. This interesting historical background provides English speakers with some context of the great Islamic scholarship that is the basis of how and why we study tajweed today.
