I understand the conditions of MEDD SILA TUL SUGRA the lesser connecting medd. I am studying sura HADID and I notice the first word in ayat 5 LA HU requires the lesser connection medd but on that page HA after the name of ALLAH did not me the condition of the two second stretch even thou it meets the condition of the lesser connecting medd. why is this?
Wa alaikum assalaam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh.
Jazakum Allahu khairan and may Allah reward all who are studying tajweed and ask questions that benefit others.
the lesser connecting medd- is a two count lengthening that comes from the vowel on a (pronoun or possessive pronoun ) when the following conditions are met: The on the end of a word (last letter) that is not part of the original make up of the word, representing the singular third person male. It is voweled either with a dhammah or a kasrah, positioned between two voweled letters, the reader is not stopping on it, and it is not followed by a hamzah.
In the case of the Glorious name in surah Al-Hadeed aayah 5:
, there are two conditions not met. The Glorious name of Allah originates from the word , which means deity. When it changes to mean the One and Only deity that we worship, “The God”, it changes so it cannot be broken down to a single form nor can it be pluralized, thus . The on the Glorious name of is not a pronoun or a possessive pronoun, instead it is part of the original make up of the word.
There is a pronounced alif over the laam with the shaddah. It was not written in the ‘Uthmani copy as it is known and not needed by the Arabs, since they know of its existence. Some copies of the Qur’an put in a small little alif above the laam, and that is better for the general masses of Muslims now days, since the strength of Arabic is not as it once was. As we know, all alifaat are saakinah, so the conditions of the being in between two voweled letters is also not me.
In conclusion, there is no medd on the of the Glorious name of Allah, since the conditions for . When stopping on the name of there is an alif following by a sukoon, so the requisites for are present, and we lengthen the alif when stopping on the Glorious name of Allah, 2, 4, or 6 vowel counts.
You are very welcome.
