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

  1. Students will attend a weekly online session with the instructor to follow up on their progress and learn about the wonders of the Holy Quran. 
  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, read the assigned material, and recite the assigned amount with a Ribaat tajwid teacher.


If you are unsure about your level, you may complete an assessment with a tajwīd instructor. Based on that, you will receive a recommendation on the best course for your level inshallah. 

To arrange an appointment, kindly email tajwid.assess@rabata.org with your name, Skype ID, and a brief summary of your background in Quran studies. We will be in touch with you as soon as possible inshallah.
