alaykum wa rahmatullah
would like to have clarification about the reading speeds, as per your
recent explanation. What is the relationship between the three speeds your
explained and two commonly mentioned reading styles "tartil" and
"tajweed?" Are not these two styles too distinguished from
alaikum assalaam wa rahmatu Allahi wa barakatuhu.
terms “tarteel” and “tajweed” are not reading styles but intrinsic
parts of recitation, but you have every excuse for thinking they were styles
because the Qur’an tape sets often use these misnomers.
Reciting with tajweed means reciting the Qur’an using the rules of
tajweed that we are learning here. The
term tarteel comes from the aayah:
The translation of the explanation of the meaning is: ((And recite the
Qur’an with measured recitation)) Al-Muzammil 4.
When Ali, may Allah be pleased with him, was asked about the meaning of
“tarteel” he said, “
means tajweed of the
letters, and knowledge of the stops.”
term “tarteel” written on the side of some recitation tapes really refers
far as the slowest speed and fine tooth observation of the tajweed rules.
The same can be said about “mujawwad” written on some tapes also.
All known reciters use tajweed since it is the essential make up of
reciting the Qur’an.
