What Is Qiraat In Quran?
In simpler terms, Qiraat of the Quran can be understood as the specific manner in which the Quran is recited.
As for the science of Qira’at, it is the knowledge by which the method of pronouncing Quranic words is learned and how to perform them, whether in agreement or in disagreement with each other, along with attributing each variant to its reciter.
To learn the Ten Qira’at correctly and under the guidance of qualified instructors from Al-Azhar, Certainly, the Ten Qira’at (Ten Recitations) can be studied at (Ulum Al-Azhar Academy). The Academy offers two types of study programs:
- The first type is theoretical study. This is a unique academic approach provided by Al-Azhar, making it the pioneer in offering this type of education. The Academy recognizes and comprehends the significance of theoretical study for students before practical application. It lays the foundation by ensuring a thorough understanding of the subject matter prior to practical implementation.
- The second type is the practical application of the Qira’at. This comes after the theoretical study and is led by graduate scholars of Al-Azhar. Students engage in practical exercises, receiving hands-on instruction in the recitations.
It’s worth noting that the Ten Qira’at refers to the various authentic ways of reciting the Quran, each with its own specific rules and nuances. Al-Azhar Academy’s unique approach combines theoretical and practical elements to ensure a comprehensive understanding and skill development in the field of Quranic recitation.
