Hyderabad: Come Ramzan and the spiritual level among Muslims records a new high. Even the not so devout fall in line – fasting, offering ‘namaz' and reciting the Quran. The month of Ramzan is in essence a celebration of Quran's revelation.

But the fact remains that not many are able to correctly recite the Quran, much less catch up with its linguistic and literal standards. To overcome this problem, a first of its kind ‘Tajweed DVD' is brought out by the Urdu daily, Siasat.

It helps one to learn the rules that govern the recitation of Quran in an easy step by step way. What is more it is also equipped with multi-lingual translation and transliteration with audio and video support.

One can gain knowledge of the ‘Tajweed' principles in Hindi, Telugu, English and Urdu.

“The young generation particularly is not aware of the ‘Tajweed' rules. This DVD will help them in reciting the Quran the correct way giving each letter its due. All that one has to do is to listen and practice,” says Zaheeruddin Ali Khan, Managing Editor, Siasat daily.

Basic principles

In the four-and-a-half-hour long DVD, Qari Naseeruddin, Khateeb of Masjid-e-Aliya, Gunfoundry, explains the basic principles of ‘Tajweed'. The 28 lessons tell in detail how the tongue should protrude slightly beyond the teeth while pronouncing ‘sa and za'. How letters like ‘swath, zawath' are pronounced heavily and how a whistling sound comes while pronouncing certain words.

One also comes to know the way ‘Huroof Halaqi' are articulated from the throat and how an echo sound comes while pronouncing ‘Huroof Qalqala'. “Just spend one hour a day and you will learn the right way of reciting the Quran in no time,” says Mr. Zaheeruddin.

To start with Siasat is freely distributing one lakh DVDs. On request from neighbouring States it is also making DVDs in Gujarati, Marathi and Kannada languages.
