Prayer Time

Paying attention to the science of Tajweed is important but it should not be at the expense of paying attention to meditation and comprehension of the word of Allâh.

Ibn Taimiyyah said: "He should not put his ultimate concern in those sciences that have been used to make people inaccessible to the realities of the Qur'aan either through abnormal scrupulosity about the proper pronunciation of its letters, or their dilution or intensification or slanting or pronouncing the long, medium and short vowels or other rules of Quranic recitation, for this is a loose screen over the hearts that sets them apart from understanding the essence of the word of the Lord".
