Listening to the great reciters of the Qur’an, especially the Egyptians, led by Sheikh Abdul Basit and Sheikh Mahmoud Khalil Al-Hosary, can certainly help you master the Tajweed, as these reciters are far superior than to others in terms of the quality of reading, the Place of articulation, and they certainly have wonderful voices as well.
