Are there any books available in English which teach the Qira'at Al Asharah.
There are books available in Arabic but I am not of those who can understand
What Naseehah would you give to someone who wants to learn the Qur'an in
another Riwaayah. I have been brought up to read in Hafs an Asim qiraa'ah but
would like to learn more. Again I do not understand Arabic so books in Arabic
would not be of use. Jazakallah for your time

2. First of all, we give you the same advice we have given to others in your same situation. Make sure you have mastered Hafs ‘an ‘Aasim before moving on to another riwaayah or another qira’ah. You have not stated in your question whether you have finished memorizing the Qur’an, which is the first and most important step. If you have, then you should seek out a well qualified master of recitation and obtain an ijaazah in the recitation of Hafs ‘an ‘Aasim. This should include memorization of the Jazariyyah poem and understanding and applying all that is within it. You would need someone to explain the meaning in English, since to the best of our knowledge there are no explanations written yet in English. It is not a difficult poem to understand, even if your Arabic is limited.
assalaam alaikum wa rahmatu Allah
