Summary: In the Khitma Project, students will recite the Holy Quran from Surat al-Fāṭiḥa to Surat al-Nās to their assigned tajwīd instructor, as a preparation and foundation for beginning with memorization. This is a two-part course: 

  1. Students will attend a weekly online session with Anse Eamaan to follow up on their progress and share the wonders of the Holy Quran. Practical assignments will be given to solidify the knowledge of tajwīd rules taken in Level 2.
  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 the Holy Quran from cover to cover with her assigned tajwīd teacher, having demonstrated the ability to apply the rules of tajwīd to the standardized and acceptable level.

Course Requirements: Students are expected to attend the weekly online lectures, complete assignments as assigned by the instructor, and complete a reading of the Holy Quran.
