Connecting with the Quran is at the heart of our values and one aspect of this is tajweed. This being a fard(obligatory) on every Muslim, we deliver classes to various levels in order to cater for the needs of our congregation.

Tajweed classes for women have been ongoing here at the LGM for over 8 years. Over time they have formed into regular classes, which cater for a wide range of abilities. Women are able to progress between the different levels, eventually becoming much more confident with their reading. There are three tajweed courses for women currently running:
