The information that you explained concerning the hiding of the noon was very
useful. may Allah be pleased with you inshallah.
1- I have a few questions concerning the stopping on a hamzah that has a
tanween with fatha. In surah 14 (Ibrahim) verse 32: "...maa an
(water)..." I have heard reciters stopping on that word, but they did not
silence the hamzah. Rather, they read it as: "Maa aa". The same
happened in surah 56 (al wâqi'ah)
verse 35. The sheikh stopped but did not silence the hamzah. He read it as:
"in shâ aa". My question is: Why is a hamzah that has a tanween
with fatha read and not silenced but a hamzah that has either a regular fatha,
dhamma, or kasra is silenced when stopped on?
2- In surah 112, when one links verse 1 and verse 2 without stopping, I have
noticed that the Alif for verse 2 bears a kasra which is read: "....A
haduni lahu samad...". this example also occurs in surah 53 verse 50 ( 'adan
il uula) and surah 18 verse 88 (djazâ an il husna) to name a few. Would you
please explain the reasons? And if you have a lesson regarding this example
would you please guide us to it inshallah?
May Allah help you understand these questions and facilitate your research

1) I have a
question about the lengthening during the adhan. I have notice that when
muezzins recite for the second time " Hayya ala Salât" and "Hayya
ala falâh", they tend to lengthen "Salât" and "Falâh"
although those two words do not have a medd. Why is it so? and to how many
counts do they lengthen "Salât" and "Falâh"?
2) Do qaris who
recite in front of a live audience (in public) have a specific training so
that they will not be nervous or make mistakes in their recitation?
(23 Dhul Qa'dah 1424/Jan 15, 2004)
In aayah 70 of
surah Aal 'Imraan :
is the word
this a shortening for "
"? How then would a reader stop on
that word if he had to stop on that word out of necessity? Jazakum
Allahu bikulli khair.

I have a few questions regarding the hiding of the noon saakinah and tanween
1. When you wrote that our tongue, in order to hide the noon, should not touch
our teeth nor our gum, but moves close to the articulation point of the next
letter, does this mean that:
a) We should prolong the ghunnah accordingly and then read the letter that
follows (one of the 15 that causes the hiding).
b) Prolong the ghunnah with the sound of the letter that follows, and then
finally read that letter?
To be more specific, when I listen to surah Al Falaq verse 2 , for example,
the sheikh (Abdul Basit/tarteel recitation) who reads uses the ghunnah
accordingly. But in the ghunnah, I can also hear that the next letter that
will be read is "Shiin". So is that what you mean by "close to,
but not at, the articulation point of the next letter"?
May Allah help you understand the questions inshallah.

This is quite hard to explain, I hope you understand.
I have been studying tajweed for a long time but just recently we have been
told that the right way to pray is e.g. Jeeeeeeeeeem instead of jeeem how we
used to pray. What I’m trying to say is that letter like jeem, sawd, seen,
Qaf, kaf, etc., we have to lengthen for at least 5 seconds +. This is all new
to me and it doesn’t seem as everywhere else is praying that way. Could you
send me a link or explanation where I can hear a qari pray the makhraj? I
would prefer someone like Sheikh Abdul Rahman Sudais or Sheikh Saud
as they are Sheikhs who people will actually recognize.
May Allah reward you for your efforts.
Question (10 Dhul Qa'dah 1424/Jan

1. I would like to know: Do Muslims who have memorized the Quran in
either one or several qiraat (for example Hafs, Warsh, and As Soosiy all
together) have a schedule they use so that they will always remember their
qiraat and their memorization? In other words, how do they manage not to
2. Is Hamzah recitation read with pauses to introduce the hamzah letter? For
example, in Surah Qaf (50) on www.kitabullah.com, the sheikh (Mustafa Ismail)
recited the second verse and paused for approximately one second each time
before reading the hamzah letter that followed.
3. What is the defining characteristic of Khalaf reading?
May Allah reward you inshallah
Question (3 Dhul Qa'dah
Assalamu Aleikum wa rahmatu
lilahi wa barakatuh
I have some questions concerning vowels and consonants in the Arabic
1. I would like to know: what are the vowels and consonants of the Arabic
alphabet (as far as the Qur'an is concerned)?
2. I am a little confused regarding vowels counts. When you mention, for
example, a 2, 4, or 6 vowel counts, are you mentioning "count" in
terms of seconds?
3. in the Hafs an Asim recitation, how many counts should a letter, when
lengthened, have (whether it has a medd or not)?
(2 Dhul Qa'dah 1424/Dec.25, 2003)
My question is, in Khalaf reading why is the basmalah between two suras not
read, second question have anyone qaari recorded Khalaf and please if you
could send me any websites that has Khalaf reading, May Allah reward you for
this noble work your doing ameen.
