It was narrated that the prophet peace and blessing be upon him said:

How to read Quran without mistake?

Learn Tajweed rules:

To learn how to read the Quran without mistakes the first thing you should do is to learn what is called tajweed rules. It is the rules used to read each letter correctly. The word tajweed itself means beautification, the act of perfecting something.

With tajweed you will learn how to pronounce the words in their right form, as each letter comes out from a part of the mouth, tajweed will help you do so.

Take each rule one at a time:

Don’t learn all the tajweed rules at the same time and then try to apply them because this will be a disaster. Give time to learn each rule at a time then apply the rule that you have learned.

By doing so you will give the required time for your brain to process and learn correctly instead of rushing things off.

Recite Quran slowly:

The main goal of reciting the Quran is to understand it, read it slowly with care and if you don’t understand the meaning of a verse or word then search for it, don’t skip it.

So, you need to recite slowly and pay attention to every word and search for the meaning of what you don’t understand. Sit in a quiet and clean place so that no one distracts you.   

Listen to your favorite Quran reciter:

To learn the tajweed rules better and be able to read without making any mistakes you should listen to a reciter and read after him. Pay attention to how he reads, when he raises his voice and when he lowers it.

Listen to how he pronounces each letter and word, the more you listen the better you get. There are many reciters that you could choose from like Saad El Ghamidi, Abdul Rahman Al Sudais, Mishary Rashid Al-afasy, and Abdul Basit Abdus Samad.

Learn the meaning of what you read:

Try your best to understand each verse you are reading, read the translation of the Quran, and search for what you don’t understand.
