Assalamu'alaykum,

I'm totally confused.

I learnt that all mudood must be read consistently. For example if we start our qiraah with mad 'aaridh lissokoon 4 harakaat, then we have to try our best to keep reading all madd 'aaridh in our qiraah 4 harakaat. 

But I hear some aimmah because they're at the end of their qiraah they make their mad aaridh longer than their initial reading. Is this permissible or negligible?  Thanks.

Wa alaikum assalaam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh.

Some leaders of the prayer, slow down the pace of reading just before finishing the standing part of a raka’ to let the congregation be aware that the reading is almost finished.  Many times the whole recitation becomes slower at the end of the raka', not just .   

You are correct; it is considered good proper technique in recitation to keep all of the various mudood consistent in length.
