Description from the publisher:
The poetic treatise Tu?fatal-A?fal—literally, The Childrens’ Bequest—is a gift to the Islamic tradition from the 12th century Egyptian scholar Sulayman al-Jamzuri [d. 1198H]. Since that era, it has been a time-tested method of teaching Tajweed, the art of reciting the Qur’an. The fact that it continues to be the world's most utilized text by teachers of Tajweed is testimony to its standing as a resource for learning this science. This work contains a poem translation incorporated within a textbook on the science of Tajweed, based upon the Qur’anic reading of ?af? on the authority of Imam ‘A?im.
“Abu Zayd’s translation of Tu?fat al-A?fal has raised the bar for translations of this genre.”
