what is the meaning of ihkfa?

Linguistically, ikhfa' means to hide.  In applied tajweed it is defined as: The pronunciation of a non-voweled letter stripped of any shaddah, characterized somewhere between an and an  with a ghunnah remaining on the first letter, in this case the  saakinah and the tanween.
