the grace of Allah I have been learning tajweed; what I'm wondering is this:
What should I do in my prayer if I notice that I said something wrong
in my Tajweed like my letter sounded wrong or I didn't stay long enough on a
medd...Should I repeat or am I paying too much attention to tajweed. I
know I'm supposed to be thinking of the meaning.
would really appreciate an answer to this question. May Allah reward
May Allah increase
your knowledge of tajweed and grant that you recite the Qur’an as it was
revealed to the Prophet,
We study tajweed to
apply it in our recitation during review, tilawah, and during our prayer.
We should not fix tajweed mistakes during prayer unless we have
changed a letter from one to another by changing a characteristic.
If our medd, though, was maybe 3 ˝ vowel counts instead of 4, our
ghunnah was a little shorter than it should be, or our tafkheem wasn’t at
the level it should be, we should not repeat it during our prayer.
This will take away from the meaning as you said, and will be hard on
those that may be praying behind you, for they will not know if you are
having troubles with your memory or not, and may think you forgot the next
aayah. Indeed, the whole concern you are having during prayer may be from
the whisperings of Satan, and you may be in fact, reciting
We must fix any word mistakes, or vowel mistakes that are made during prayer, and outside of prayer. When we are reciting tilawah, reviewing, or memorizing in our home or in a study , situation, we can take the time to correct our mistakes in tajweed and improve our abilities, insha’ Allah this will carry over to our salah.
