For the student

As-salaamu ‘alaykum warahmatullaahi wabarakatuh,


Allaah (exalted and glorified be he) said:

 Those who We have given the Book to, give it its right in recitation ( recite it as it should be recited)’ (2:121)


“…And recite the Qur’aan with measured recitation.”  [73:4]

 Imaam Muhammad Al-Jazari (rahimahullaah) said:

“And applying Tajweed is an issue of absolute necessity, Whoever doesn’t apply Tajweed to the Qur’aan, then he is a sinner.”

 And to proceed:

This will be a gradual translation Inshaa’Allaah of the famous poem Tuhfatul Atfaal (A gift for the children)  by Imaam Sulaymaan Bin Husayn Bin Muhammad Al-Jamzoori. The poem covers the rules of tajweed in a very short and concise manner so the student can easily memorise it as well as attaining all the required ahkaam (rules).

The Messenger of Allaah (may the peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

“Every good deed which is not started with the basmallah is severed in blessings”

And so Imaam Jamzoori started his book with the basmallah, practising upon the hadeeth of the prophet (may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him).

May Allaah accept this from me and may it be a benefit to all those who read it, Aameen.

A gift for the children 



يَقُـولُ رَاجِـي رَحْمَـةِ الْغَـفُـورِ **   دَوْمًـا سُلَيْمَـانُ هُـوَ الجَمْـزُوري

Says he who is always hoping for the mercy of the oft-forgiving,  he is Sulaymaan Al-Jamzoori.


الْحَمْـدُ لـلَّـهِ مُصَلِّـيًـا عَـلَـى  **  مُحَـمَّـدٍ وَآلــهِ وَمَــنْ تَــلاَ

 All praise is due to Allaah, whilst sending salutation upon Muhammad (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa salam), his family, and those who follow him. 


وَبَعْـدُ هَــذَا النَّـظْـمُ لِلْمُـرِيـدِ **  فِـي النُّـونِ والتَّنْوِيـنِ وَالْمُـدُودِ 

As to what proceeds, this poem is for the one who seeks it (students), regarding the letter noon, the nunation and the rules of elongation. 


سَمَّيْـتُـهُ بِتُحْـفَـةِ الأَطْـفَــالِ  ** عَنْ شَيْخِنَـا الْمِيهِـىِّ ذِي الْكَمـالِ

I have named it ‘A gift for the children’, on the authority of our Shaykh, Al-Mihiy, the perfect one (mastery in the art of tajweed).


أَرْجُـو بِـهِ أَنْ يَنْـفَـعَ الطُّـلاَّبَـا **  وَالأَجْــرَ وَالْقَـبُـولَ وَالثَّـوَابَـا

I hope with it (this poem) that it benefits the students and (I hope for) reward, acceptance and retribution.
