This book is the 1st part of a three part series in English on the Tajweed rules on Quran. This book acts as a guide for non-Arabs with a good grasp of English for studying tajweed of the holy Quran. It explains the articulation points of the Arabic letters, the rules of meem saakinah, noon saakinah, and lam saakinah. It also explains all of the different lengths (mudood) and the formation of voweled, and non-voweled letters. Moreover, there is an explaination on The qalaqah mechanism, in the last chapter of this book. The author has introduced the terms in Arabic, then translated them into English. Explanations are in English with integration of Arabic terms.
