The recitation curriculum has four levels:
Level 1 Focus on mastering the letters of the Arabic Alphabet, including their sounds and shapes. Students train on distinguishing subtle differences between similar letters and their different forms depending on the position in the word. In addition, students can read words and sentences in full, thereby allowing them to read from the Quran (Mushaf) independently.
Level 2 Covers the basic rules of Tajweed (i.e. proper recitation of the Quran), including Noon Saakin, Tanween, Meem, Saakin, and some rules of Moodud (extended sounds), Ghunnah (nasal sounds), and Qalqalah (echoing sounds).
Level 3 Covers the complex rules of Tajweed in detail, including essential manners of reciting the Quran such as proper beginning and ending of a recitation, mandatory extensions and pauses during recitation, and letter-specific rules such as Izhaar and Ikhfa and relationship between them.
Level 4 Is a detailed application of all rules of Tajweed on two parts of the Quran covering all verses including (جزء عمَّ) Juz’ Amma and (جزء تبارك) Juz Tabarak. Students at this level perfect their recitation, analyze words and explain the rules of Tajweed in detail. In addition, students learn interconnections between recitation and the meaning of Surah and its vocabulary. After the recitation program, Students will be eligible to apply for the Ijazah Program.
