Abstract

This article is a preliminary study on Sheikh Muhammad Rif'at's uslub qira'ah (Qur'anic reading style) based on the meaning of Qur'anic verses in his recitation. His method of tarannum (Qur'anic chanting) stressed the importance of understanding the contents of the verses and focusing on components of al-Ada' which are observation of the law of tajwid, waqf (stop or pause) and ibtida' (beginning), tadabbur (meditating) of the verse, engrossment in reading and correlating of verses with maqam tarannum. These five components are important pillars in explaining the concept of meaning-based tarannum in Qur'anic recitation, be it in the form of murattal or mujawwad. The combination of these five components results in a solid recitation of high quality tarannum and artistic value.
