reference to the word "ta'mannaa" in Surah Yusuf I see from your
site that there are two ways of reciting this in the way of Shaatibiyah -
ishmaam and ikhtilaas.
have always been taught that the two ways are in fact ishmaam and rawm. I have
checked in my musshaf ul qiraa'aat and it states this, I have also perused the
Baab Idghaam al-Kabeer in an-Nashr and it seems also to state ishmaam and rawm.
Would you kindly clarify this for me? Which are the correct ways?
alaikum assalaam wa rahmatu Allahi wa barakatuh,
There are some terms that are interchanged in the old tajweed books, and the application of them passed down in authentic chains explain which term is actually meant. There are three terms interchanged in An-Nashr, as well as the Shatibiyyah poem, sometimes meaning one thing, sometimes meaning another. They are: , , and , the last word referring to the vowel, not the normal tajweed rule.
first clarification to make is that
only on the end of a word when stopping, never in a middle of a word.
Given that, we know then on the word
the normal definition and must be instead
see the chart comparing the two terms here.
Ash-Shatibiyyah, Imam Ash-Shatibiyy said:
Ash-Shaatibiyy chose the verb “hide” which
from, to describe
the chapter on the
, he uses the command verb
when describing the different ways two letters of the same or similar type
are read in the way
of recitation of Imam
The explanation of Ash-Shaatibiyyah called
Abdul-Fattaah Al-Qaadhee, states the following about this line of poetry:
meaning the word
is a term for
, and he goes on explaining that this
means, giving the vowel only part of one vowel count. In another explanation
in the same chapter, he states
meaning, hiding it (the idghaam) and stealing its vowel, which is expressed by
summary then, the three terms are interchanged in early tajweed and recitation
works, and the explanation of these works, which is done by those that have
recited in authentic chains of transmission, are what informs us as to how to
apply the specific term. The use
of the term
in the case of
other than stopping on the end of a word, is referring to
writing of the early works of tajweed and the recitation passed down in
authentic chains go hand in hand in applying tajweed.
We need both to know how to apply correct tajweed rules.
