The proper ways of recitation of the Qur'an by following the tajweed etc

Qur'an recitation is the reading (tarteel, tajwid or taghbir) aloud, reciting, or chanting of portions of the Qur'an.

Recitation should be done according to rules of pronunciation (tajwid), intonation, and caesuras established by the prophet Muhammad.

The Qur'an is marked with twenty-six symbols, circles, rectangles, dashes and letters, some in color. These are written above, below, or beside the letters of the alphabet. They indicate the pronunciation of consonants, whether the blending of neighboring or adjacent consonants is allowed, and where recitation pauses and caesuras are forbidden and possible.

A different form of the Qur'an is available called the Tajwid Qur'an that emphasizes the tajwid rules by various symbols and colour coded letters and fonts etc that would assist in proper recitation.
