Benefit: Teach and Learn the Qurʾān Correctly
In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
The teacher must recite then the student must follow suit, since the Qurʾān is learnt. [Similarly,] the Qurʾān was recited to the Prophet (ﷺ) then he (ﷺ) emulated its recitation, as the Mighty and Majestic said:
فَإِذَا قَرَأْنَاهُ فَاتَّبِعْ قُرْآنَهُ
“So when We have recited it [i.e. when Jibrāʾīl have recited the Qurʾān to you, Muḥammad (ﷺ)], then emulate its recitation” [Sūrah al-Qiyāmah, 75:18].
This is how the Qurʾān is taught. As for correcting the student until he recites accurately [i.e. without hearing the teacher’s recitation], then this is incorrect. The teacher must recite then the student must follow suit.
