Complete Qaidah (Madinah Script)
Safar Learn to Read Series
The Safar Complete Qa’idah is vastly different from other Qa’idahs available: it is a product of consultation and teaching experience of over a decade. It contains 13 progressive levels, each targeting a unique feature of learning. Each level ensures a gradual and logical progression that fills the gaps which exist in many other Qa’idahs. Explanatory graphics and supplementary exercises have also been included, providing a comprehensive approach to learning to read the Qur’an.
There are only Qur’anic examples in this Qai’dah and the script has been imported directly from the Madinah Qur’an which is used worldwide. We have done this because computer fonts and alternative calligraphers do not prepare students well enough to read the hand-written Qur’anic script.
The Qai’dah’s unique marking code, diary and checklist have been designed to keep track of a student’s progress and to enhance communication between students, parents and teachers.
This Qa’idah forms the foundation of the Safar Learn to Read Series, a comprehensive curriculum including the Safar Juz ‘Amma and the Safar Rules of Tajwid book. The book Rules of Tajwid picks up after this Qaidah book, and begins with Level 14.
