The need of Tajweed
Bismillahir Rahman nir Raheem

Assalam oalaikum,
In the earliest copies of Quran there were no dots or harakats
(movements) on the huroof/alphabets, whatsoever. The Sahaba Ikram
(Razi Allah Anha) had learnt the Holy Quran directly from Prophet
Mohammad (saw). Hence, it was easy for them to recite the Quran
without dots or harakats. Till the time when the Quran was confined to
Arabia, there was no danger to its integrity. However, when Islam
began to spread and it reached the non-Arabs they started reciting the
Holy Quran in the way that was convenient for them. This trend posed a
serious threat to the accuracy and intactness of Quranic message
because of wrong pronunciation. At this critical juncture, the Sahaba
Ikram (Razi Allah Anha) realized that if they did not take immediate
action the people would lose the knowledge of the correct way of
pronouncing the quran.
As a matter of fact, every language has a particular accent and
pronunciation. Most probably, the third Caliph of Islam, Hazrat Uthman
(Razi Allah Anha), realized the seriousness of the problem and
introduced the Harakat and other rules for maintaining accuracy in the
Quraninc recitation.
Though these dots had been invented by the olden Arab tribes, much
before the revelation of Quran, but they never used the dots in their
writings. In fact, it was considered to be offensive to use the dots
on the alphabets, especially while writing a letter.

It was only when Islam had spread far and wide that the need was felt
to simplify the recitation of the Holy Quran to help those who
embraced Islam and who did not have much understanding of Arabic
