How to learn how to read the Qur’aan

Question

I cannot recite and memorize Qur’aan very well. What is the way to improve my recitation and memorization? There is no one available to teach us and we are adults.

Answer

Praise be to Allah.

The best way to learn Tajweed (proper recitation of Qur’aan) is to read to a shaykh who is qualified in Qur’aan recitation. If there is no such person in your city, then according to sharee’ah it is required and encouraged that you should travel in order to find such a person. If that is not possible, then the Muslim should learn from his brothers and from tapes of readers. If Allaah knows that a person's intention is sincere, He will open the doors of goodness to him.
