Open Recitation and Hifz
- Accuracy e.g. is the recitation correct/incorrect
- Style/tune of recitation – participants should have control over the style and be comfortable with their chosen style. For higher marks in the 16+ category, participants should demonstrate atleast 2x different Maqaamaat/styles in their recitation.
- Makhaarij (most important)
- General Rules of Tajweed (All Tajweed rules, but participants should focus on Ikhfaa, Idghaam, Iqlaab, Idhaar)
Please note that both Open Recitation and Hifz will be judged in a similar way.
