DURUSULQURAN (LESSONS OF QURAN)
Aim and Object:
Still, this course has its limitations; therefore it is imperative to have a qualified teacher to aid in verifying the correct pronunciation and other phonetic (tajweed) rules. All students must actively seek out a qualified teacher or at the very least, someone who is adept at reading the Holy Qur'an. I would ask particularly that young Muslim children must not rely solely on the information provided in this course. The support provided by your nearest Masjid or similar facilities is essential in learning not only the Qur'an but other aspects of Islam as well.
Lastly, this course is not designed to provide instruction in the meaning of the Holy Qu'ran; such a study would require a comprehensive knowledge of Arabic vocabulary and grammar. Recently (February 2003) a separate section has been added (Level 9) "still under construction" to provide basic lessons on Arabic Grammar for English speaking.

More detail about contents of this course
The course is based on "AHSANUL-KAWA-ID" compiled by Moulana Shamsudin Brodvi (India) also known as "Qaeeda" or noorani-qaeeda. This method of learning is generally suitable for non-Arab learners. It is believed that there are at least two popular methods are in used for reading the Qu'ran. One is predominantly used throughout the sub-continent India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and neighboring countries and settlements including (central and South East Asia), where the majority of the Muslims live. Another method is used in the Middle East mainly by the Arabs. There are slight differences in both approaches. For this course, we have adopted the method which is used mainly in the Sub-continent, as this is generally regarded as being the easiest to apply for beginners. As both approaches naturally have their respective strengths and weaknesses, the differences in each method will be explained throughout this course, wherever necessary. The ultimate result however, remains the same.
