Asslaamu Alaikum, I am learning tajweed (Haffs), my teacher has said that the more correct way is to make madd munfasil 2 harakah (he quoted a hadeeth) and munfasil 4 or 5 (6 when stopping on it). However as an English speaker and complete baby in Arabic I find it impossible to differentiate between hamza in the same word or in two words. Please can you explain how to recognise this or provide a list of all the mutasil words so that i can memorise them?
JazaakAllahuKheran in advance.

Wa alaikum assalaam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,
The most widely read way in the Muslim world today is Hafs min tareeq Ash-Shaatibiyyah, and in this way either both Al-Medd Al jaa'iz Al-munfasil and al-medd al waajib al-muttasil are either four or five vowel counts.  Both have to be the same amount of vowel counts in this way, meaning both are lengthened four vowel counts or both lengthened five vowel counts. 
This way is much easier for you to learn and use until you acquire more knowledge of the Arabic language and can differentiate between two words or one word. 

This way, Hafs 'an 'Aasim min tareeq Ash-Shaatibiyyah has an authentic chain going back to the Prophet that no one questions. 

There are also other authentic ways of Hafs 'an 'Aasim called turuq At-Tayyibah, this are also unquestionably authentic.  There are ways in the tareeq at-Tayybiah in which al-medd al-waajib al-muttasil is lengthened four vowel counts and al-medd al-jaa'iz al-munfasil is lengthened two vowel counts.   It is not correct to say one way is better, more authentic, or more correct than the other.  All have solid authentic chains of transmission.
There is however, no authentic way for Hafs in which al-medd al-waajib is lengthened 5 vowel counts and al-medd al-jaa'iz is lengthened two vowel counts. 
Stopping on six vowel counts is a different story and it needs advance knowledge of tajweed to explain, but when we stop on a word ending with a hamzah preceded by a medd letter (which makes it medd waajib muttasil) it has two causes for the medd, medd waajib and medd 'aaridh lissukoon.  Stopping on six vowel counts is used only when we lengthen all of our medd 'aaridh lissukoon six vowel counts. 

We suggest you either convince your teacher to let you read Hafs by tareeq Ash-Shaatibyyah, or find another teacher.
