Description from the publisher:
Holy Quran Colour Coded Tajweed Rules with Colour Coded Translation. This colour coded system has been introduced to highlight the Rules of Tajweed with seven different Colours, each colour represents a Tajweed Rule. The Tajweed Rule allows the reciter to emphasise the accent, phonetics, rhythm and temper of The Quranic recitation. This humble effort is an attempt to facilitate the Tilaawah of The Holy Quran with proper Tajweed. This is a nice hardbound edition of the popular 3-column format Holy Quran with Colour Coded Arabic Text, Romanized (Transliterated) English, and Colour Coded English translation by Abdullah Yusuf Ali. Quran comes with the "Persian" script, commonly used in India, Pakistan and throughout the world.
The advantage of a "romanized" transliteration of the Quran is that it allows those who are not aware of Arabic language & eager to recite and for the beginner to learn Quranic Arabic script to be able to sound out problematic verses or words of the Quran, and to be used as an aid in proper enunciation and pronunciation of Quranic Arabic text. It is a fact that no system of perfect transcription is possible, however, it has to be acknowledged that Mr. Abdul Haleem Eliasiís (Transliterater) approach is very simple and much nearer to the perfection.
