1: A Brief for Teachers and Current Readers of Holy Quran
About 'Easy Recite Arabic Transliteration'

All teachers and former readers of the Holy Quran already know all 'Rules of Recitation' and the 3-5 symbols per Arabic letter, etc. Their expertise is welcome in 'ERA' System. However, a few variations / exceptions, as under, may please be noted.

  1. A hollow letter is a non-spoken letter. It gives no sound. It is to be neglected, ignored and not be read.
  2. A hollow 'Harakah' is non-effective. It is neglected, ignored and not taken into account.
  3. A green letter signals to be the first letter of a 'Pair of letters, to be read, blended together.' All green letters are blended to next spoken letter, which is either black or green and carries a 'Jazm' or a 'Shadda' on it.
  4. A green 'Harakah' also tells that a pair of letters starts from this green letter.

    Note: In other scripts, 'a Jazm or a Shadda' is found on the 'second or last letter' in each 'Pairs of joined Letters.' In ERA System the first letter of all such pairs is shown in Green. Thus, ERA shows a 'green light' to start each Pair.' ERA displays 'Jazm or Shadda', as a convention.
    Remember: 'Green color always starts a pair.'
  5. A black letter does not start any pair of letters. It speaks, either as a single (individual) spoken letter or as a second letter in a pair of blended letters.
  6. A black 'Harakah' affects its own associated black letter and no more.
  7. The black or green portion of a partially hollow 'Harakah' performs, as per its own color.
  8. ERA System, in total, uses just 30 Alphabetic symbols to reproduce and type whole of Holy Quran and all sorts of Arabic. First, look at them carefully.

With a focus on above mentioned variations, you shall be pleased with your results. Not only, you shall improve the quality and fluency of your own recitation, get motivated to teach and tutor others, but also succeed to memorise more portions from the Holy Quran. Insha Allah.

Skill # 1
To learn, remember and work with only 30 shapes or symbols, depicting 28 Arabic alphabet, during your recitation activities.
Skill # 2
To differentiate between many mutually similar letter symbols of Arabic alphabets.
Skill # 2
Not required.
ERA letter symbols are not much alike. Each letter is distinct and unique in its showing. Even 'nukta' or dots differ.
Skill # 3
To surf and search 1-5 spaces ahead of each letter under recitation, in same line or next line, on same page or next page, on same side or opposite side of the page in view, to find the presence / non-presence of a 'Black jazm' amid black letters and black 'Irab' of the text.
Skill # 3
Not required equally.
ERA System uses 'Red jazm' in place of 'Black jazm.'
Like a red traffic light on a road, each 'Red jazm' stands out more easily and quickly. Therefore, old skill to surf and search 1-5 spaces ahead of each letter is not required, exactly.
Skill # 4
To learn, remember and practice many rules to find out 'Silent or non-spoken letters' in Arabic text.
After finding out each silent letter, it is ignored by readers during their recitation.
Skill # 4
Not required.
Because, ERA System finds out all the 'Silent or non-spoken letters' and displays them in hollow or transparent format.
Hollow letters are then ignored by the readers.
Skill # 5
To learn and practice methods and means to distinguish between two types of spoken letters.
One, whose affected-sound joins or blends with the next letter, having a jazm or shadda on it, and the second type of letters, which do not join or blend with next letter.
Skill # 5
Not required.
ERA System no longer requires its users to bother about two types of spoken letters. ERA System segregates both types in entire Arabic Holy Quran and prints them in Green and Black colours.
Green letters join or blend with next letter. Black letters do not join or blend.
Skill # 6
To learn too many names, their abbreviated Arabic representations and their puzzling functions as Arabic Punctuation Signs, known as 'Waqoof.'
Skill # 6
Not required equally.
ERA System uses only one sign, round in shape. It shows the end of each 'Ayah' and it counts serial numbering and quantity of 'Ayahs' in each 'Surah.'
Skill # 7
To learn the influences and effects of too many Arabic 'Waqoof' Signs on former 1-2 letters and their diacritics. Instead of actual visible Arabic text, the readers have to read or recite their decoded effects.
Skill # 7
Not required.
All effects and changes on former 1-2 letters and their diacritics are fully shown by ERA System in wise colours. Therefore, all readers read and recite actual visible Arabic text, as seen by them.
Readers are not required to decode effect or influence of Arabic 'Waqoof.'
Such Smart Solutions were never ever available to readers, in the past.
Skill # 8
To learn and remember all reasons and arguments, as to how and when to recite a 'Noon' 100%, 50% or 0%.
Skill # 8
Not required.
ERA System saves its readers from all reasons, arguments labour and liability.
ERA displays the 'Noon' 100%, 50% or 0%, as to be recited by readers.
Skill # 9
To learn, remember and practice, when to apply a 'Fatha, Dhama' or 'Kasra' to an 'Empty Alif,' to start a fresh recitation from that 'Empty Alif.'
Skill # 9
Not required.
ERA System shows a 'Fatha, Dhama' or 'Kasra' in red colour, before relevant 'Empty Alif,' as an aid to all its readers.
Skill # 10
To be trained to repeatedly pre-scan the text on next line, while still reading the text on former line, to detect, if two letters on these two lines are to be blended together or not? It is required far about 3,000 times in a Holy Quran. The readers either forget to blend at proper times or strive to blend at wrong places. Both actions create errors!
Skill # 10
Not required.
ERA System ensures that all such chances are totally eliminated, except at 2 locations only, where a warning exists.

As a result, all readers are utterly relaxed during their recitation of entire Holy Quran.
