1. Students will gain an understanding of the rules of tajwīd (proper pronunciation of the Holy Quran) during weekly online sessions with Anse Ola.
2. Each student will be paired with a certified tajwīd teacher, either online or locally, with whom she will work one-on-one. This part of the course will be complete when the student has read through Juzuʾ ʿAmma with her assigned tajwīd teacher, having demonstrated the ability to apply the rules of tajwīd to the standardized and acceptable level. Upon completion, advanced students may begin a recitation of Juzuʾ Tabārak.

Course Requirements: Students are expected to attend the weekly online lectures, complete assignments as assigned by the instructor, read the assigned material, complete a reading of Juzuʾ ʿAmma, and review and sit for a midterm and a final exam.
