Welcome to this volume of the Holy Quran, composed on 'Simplified, Colour coded, Transliterated, Truly visual, Friendly and Trend setting' Easy Recite Arabic System Script. It transforms your recital to resemble a 'Named Audio Cassette,' friendly, fluent and joyful.
With a view to furnish an attractive, most easily recite-able and widely popular version of the Holy Quran, following principles have been adhered to, while composing this volume.
Copy Holy Text, from certified copies, authenticated by the government of Saudi Arabia. We adhere to their counting of 'Ayahs,' placing of 'Jazm and Shadda' on letters and generally their Punctuation signs. It is because their approach is more helpful to most users, all over the world.
Adopt the Indian way of Lettering and using the 'Irab' or Diacritics. It is because this is more simple and easy to follow, than other ways of Lettering and using 'Irab' or Diacritics.
Try to emulate the 'Verse by Verse Recitation' audio and sound tracks of Qari Sheikh Abdul Baset Abdul Samad. It is because his recitation is one of the best. It is impressive and easy. It consists of shorter sentences. His recitation can be easily and almost closely reproduced by the beginners, mediocres, as well as, by the professional readers of The Holy Quran.
The colour coded, truly visual, transliterated and equipped with other refinements, the ERA contents of this volume convey, create and generate a 'Synchronised Verse by Verse' recitation by its readers, which resembles that of Qari Sheikh Abdul Baset Abdul Samad. The end result gives its readers a great satisfaction and a delight and an amazement to listeners and the patrons.

First Brief for Teachers & Former Readers of The Holy Quran
About 'Easy Recite Arabic (Printing) System'
All teachers and former readers of the Holy Quran know all 'Rules of Recitation' and recognize all the 3-5 symbols per Arabic letter. Their knowledge is welcome in 'ERA' System. However, a few variations / exceptions, as under, may please be noted.
A hollow letter is a non-spoken letter. It gives no sound. It is to be neglected and not read.
A hollow 'Irab' is non-effective. It is to be neglected and not taken into account. Forget it.
A green letter signals to be the first letter of a 'Pair of letters, to be read together.'
All green letters are blended to next spoken letter, which is either be black or green and displays either a 'Jazm' or a 'Shsdda' on it.
A green 'Irab' also tells that a pair of letters starts from this associated green letter.
Note. In other scripts, 'a Jazm or a Shadda' is found on 'second or last letter' in each 'Pairs of joined Letters.' In ERA System the first letter of all such pairs is shown Green. Thus, ERA shows a 'green light' to start each 'Pair.' ERA displays 'Jazm or Shadda', as a convention.
Remember: 'Green colour always starts a pair.'
A black letter does not start any pair of letters. A black letter speaks either as a single (individual) spoken letter, or as the second letter in a pair of joined or blended letters.
A black 'Irab' affects its own associated black letter and no more.
The black or green portion of a partially hollow 'Irab' performs, as per its own colour.
There are only 30 symbols, used by ERA System, to reproduce and type The Holy Quran, for all the readers. Please 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 of The Holy Quran.
