The term tarteel is derived from the Arabic root rtl meaning the recite slowly. Tarteel is measured recitation of the Quran in rhythmic tones. It follows all the rules of tajweed giving every letter its correct articulation, observing all qualities of letters. Tarteel is the method most popular reciters of the Quran use today.
Tajweed is from Arabic root jwd. Literally it means beautification or making things excellent. Muslims use this term for the rules of reciting Quran in precise accordance with the established rules of pronunciation and intonations, such as tafkheem, velarization, Ghunnah, chanting, and Iqlaab, transposition. This discipline is taught in Islamic schools as ilmut tajweed (art of tajweed).
The difference between Tarteel and Tajweed:
Tarteel and Tajweed, both, follow the rules of ilmut tajweed. Tarteel, however, is relatively faster paced then Tajweed. Unlike the word Tajweed, the term Tarteel is used by Allah in the Quran: And recite the Quran with tarteel in slow, measured rhythmic tone (73:4).
The Origin of the Art of Tajweed:
Not much is known about the historical development of the art of tajweed except a tradition which says that it was Abdullah bin Masud, may Allah be pleased with him, who first told Muslims Jawwidul Quran (Sayuti, Itqan, 1, 102). He was a well-known companion of the Prophet, Allah's peace and blessings be upon him. Hadith collections of both Muslim and Bukhari report how the Prophet used to weep when Ibn Masud recited the Quran and asked his other companions to imitate the way Abdullah ibn Masud recited.
