Back in December 2015 I interviewed the founder of Olive Tree Study, a weekend school in London. The founder, Tahera Akhtar has now created a CD: Tajweed Nasheed Nursery Rhyme.
I was never taught the tajweed rules as a child and as an adult I am struggling. Tajweed is highly important when it comes to reciting the Quran correctly and it is something I will ensure my girls know in sha Allah.
But it isn’t always easy which is why this is ideal; a fun way to learn the rules.
Rhyming songs we’ve learnt as small children stick to our memory like super glue because music and song activate more parts of our brain.
Taking the inspiration from children’s rhymes, we created the clever tajweed rhymes to allow children and their parents to learn and memorise the tajweed rules by singing along with catchy tunes.
This very powerful sing-along rhyming technique teaches children to read the Quran authentically applying the tajweed rules.
The first album is now available to purchase and has five tracks which are the five basic rules. There will be a second album with more advanced rules.
The rhymes can be purchased by downloading it as a MP3 from CD baby website, purchasing them as a CD from Amazon.com or from a local Islamic retail shop.
You can listen to a sample of the songs from the CD Baby Website.
