Qur’an Recitation Course

The Institute of Qur’an Recitation, established at IUR, admits students to develop their knowledge of the Qur’an (memorization, recitation, reading and knowledge of the Qur’an) by means of intensive courses. In addition to the memorization and recitation of the Qur’an, students of the Institute of Qur’an Recitation may follow additional courses of hadith (sayings of the Prophet) and Tafsir (commentary of the Qur’an). As diction is one of the most important parameters in the pronunciation aspect of a language, the Institute of Qur’an recitation focuses on the phonetic and phonological levels as a requirement for Muslims readers of the Qur’an, either in prayer or speeches.

Aims and objectives

The ultimate aim is to train expert readers in the Netherlands with knowledge of the precious “ten-fold style recitations.” The Institute of Qur’an Recitation aims at teaching students how to correctly read and recite and memorizing the Qur’anic Texts, and cultivating their skills of memorization, recitation and deepening their knowledge of the Qur’an. The focus is placed on some chapters of the Qur’an, with concentration on meanings and reading according to the rules of recitation. Attention is also paid to linguistic construction and rhetorical features.
One of the most cherished goals of most Muslims readers of the Qur’an is the correct memorization and recitation of the holy book of Allah, the Qur’an, from the beginning till the end. The title “hafiz” is given to those who achieve the memorization of the Qur’an from the opening verse until the closing verse (N=100.000 Surats). Reading Qur’an properly is very important for all believers and especially for those leading the prayers and lecturing on the recitation of the Qur’an to others.
