Why Learn Tajweed?

In his famous Mandhuma (poem), Al-Jazariyyah, Imam Al-Jazari Rahimahullah states:

والأخذ بالتجويد حتم لازم **** مَن لم يجوِّد القران آثم
لأنه به الإله أنزلا **** وهكذا منه إلينا وصلا
وهو أيضاً حلية التلاوة **** وزينة الأداء والقراءة

The practical application of tajweed is without doubt compulsory *** Who does not read the Quran correctly a sinner is he

Because this (Qur’an) was revealed to us by Allah in this form *** And exactly like this (with tajweed) it reached us (from our Prophet, then related in authentic chains over generations to our present day shuyookh and those with ijaazah).

And it (tajweed) is also a beautification of recitation *** And an adornment of pronunciation and reading.


The clear and obvious mistakes are labeled as: لحن جلي , this type of mistake should be corrected and avoided because it may lead to change in the meaning, grammar, or incorrect in the Arabic language.
