Question (25 Thul Qa'dah 1428/Dec 5, 2007)

Question (14 Thul Qa'dah 1428/Nov 24, 2007)

Assalamu Alaykum Wa Rahamtullahi Barakatuh,

Respected teachers,

I have a question regarding the reading of the little 'seen' that appears in the Qur'an (4 times). According to Hafs (by way of Shatibiyyah), is it permissible to make idgham instead of the breathless pause ? For example ... instead of "Qeela mann (pause) raaaaq..." can we read "Qeela marraaaaq..." ? But, if read with the pause, how long should this last ?

Finally, with your permission I would like to ask one more question.
Most of the pakistani Qurra recite with Hafs, but if asked "...with which tareeq ?" .. They simply say Hafs, and if asked about the different turuq in general, some even refuse to accept this and say that there is only one method of Hafs Ďan Asim. Would you happen to
know with which tareeq they recite generally ?
Jazakallah

Question (5 Shawwal 1428/Oct 16, 2007)

Assalamu aleikum wa rahmatu lilahi wa barakatuh

May Allah accept our prayers, good deeds, and duas we all did doing during Ramadan (Amin).

I know that the recitation of Khalaf hamza is very noticeable due to its sakt (breathless pause). I have been listening to quite a few recitors who I think recited in the way of Khalaf hamzah but who used different rules of tajweed related to the recitation (from what I usually listen to of Khalaf hamzah).
For example those recitors would lenghten to six counts a madd al jaa iz munfasil or madd al waajib muttasil and then add a sakt to them and continue. Moreover in the same recitation (if this is Khalaf hamzah) they would stop with an imaalah kubrah on the letter "Taa Marboutah" (just like the riwayyah of Ad Duri from Kisai) if there is one in the ayah they are reading. Here is a concrete example.

Surah Hijr verse 85: the recitor was reading as follows:
"wa maa khalaqnaa Samawati wal (sakt) arda wa maa baynahumaa (six counts + sakt) illa bil haq. Wa innas saa 'ata la aatiye (imaalah kubrah)"

Another example in Surah Al Israa verse 7. Another recitor was reciting as follow:
"in (sakt) ahsantum (sakt) ah santum li anfusikum. Wa in (sakt) asa' tum falahaa. Fa izhaa dje (six counts + imaalah kubrah + sakt) a wa'dul (sakt) aa khirati li a suu (six counts + sakt) u wujuu hakum .... kamaa dakhaluuhu awal marreh (the recitor also stopped on the word "marr ah" with an imaalah kubrah just like Aduri from Al Kisai).

My questions are:

A) Is this the recitation of Khalaf hamzah to lenghthen six counts and then add a sakt (breathless pause) to every madd waa jib muttasil and madd al jaaiz munfasil?

B) Is this also the characteristics of khalaf hamza when stopping on a word with "taa marbuutah" to stop with imaalah kubrah as the recitation of Ad Duri by Al kisai does?

I hope I was not confusing in my questions and explanation. May Allah grant you facility in answering. And may He give you all the tools to enlighten the Muslim community that writes you on a daily basis with the rules of Tajweed and the seven qiraah (Amin)

Question (26 Ramadhan 1428/Oct 8, 2007)

AS-salaamu-alikum warahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

By the grace of Allah SWT Iíve learned the Quran recitation from a mashaf from the Indian subcontinent, and memorized it in the same. Alhamdulillah I can recite in both. But what should one give more preference to and why? I was told if Arabic is poor of the reciter who is an ajmi (non Arab) he should recite from the mashaf from the Indian subcontinent as the waqf signs are in place which may help in stopping at the right places. I also run Quran classes and as norm here in most towns/cities where there are more ajmiís, Quran is taught using the mashaf from the Indian continent. But Iím confused to what I should promote. I would appreciate your consultation in this matter.

 

Once again Jazakallah for you khidmah to us.

 

Please make duaa for me my family and my students and ummah at large.

 

Was-salaamu-alaikum warahmatullah.

Question (25 Sha'baan1428/Sept. 7, 2007)

Assalaamu 'alaykum wa rahmatullah,

 

May Allah reward you for such a wonderful website.  This really fills a need.  I apologize, because I know I'm going to swamp you with questions in this e-mail.  There is no local teacher.

I am working learning Warsh, and my question is about the .  In the following link: http://www.abouttajweed.com/warsh_rules_2.htm, you state for the example "A" in Qur'an 7:111 and 26:36  , that the madd is 2 harakahs.  Although my goal is to read from my "plain" mushaf, I picked up a "tajweedee" mushaf because I thought it would help me understand the rules.  The tajweedee one marks it has having a necessary 6 harakahs.  Is there are a difference on this?  And if there is, do some give it the option of 2, 4 or 6 harakahs?

Also, you stated that otherwise, the rules are as the rules of Hafs.  I don't know the rules of Hafs.  :)   Does the normal "ha" get only 2, or is it an optional 2,4, or 6?

Similar for B:  is the madd as-silah just 2, or is it 2, 4, or 6 optional?

Jazakum Allahu khayr.  Barak Ullahu feekum.

Question (13 Sha'baan1428/Aug. 26, 2007)

Assalamu 3alaikum,

I have a question that i would like to ask Shaikh Ayman R. Swayd. I hope he is a part of this. This is my very first time doing this so forgive me please if i made any mistake. Also, I cant type Arabic so i will do it in English and it might be hard to read, but i hope you can understand it..
Here is the question regarding the hamzah and the alif wasl:

in surah albaqarah ayah 283 ( fal yu2addillathi 2tomina amaanatah)

 

surah attawbah ayah 49 ( wa minhom mayyaqoolu 2dhan ly wala taftinny)


surah al a7qaaf ayah 4 ( e2toony bikitaabim min qabl..)


1- How do I figure out what tashkeel to put on the alif wasly?

2- How do I find out their original words?

3- If I begin with the words that begin with the alif wasl and the hamzah (ex. e2toony) how do I read it?

4- Can you give that example with the rest of the similar words?


I can read Arabic perfectly but I cant understand the fus7ah that well.
I look forward for your answers inshallah. Wassalaamu 3alaikum wara7matullah.

Question (5 Sha'baan1428/Aug. 18, 2007)

Assalamu aleikum wa rahmatu lilahi wa barakatuh

I have a couple of questions regarding a few rules of the recitation of Ad Duri from Kesai. I was listening to surah Al Balad and Al Ghashiyyah by the way of Ad Duri from Kesai (
www.islamweb.net the reciter was Abdur Rasheed Soofi) and I noticed that
when there is a word ending with a "Taa marbootah" such as the word "Masfuufah" (surah 88 verse 15), the reciter recited as "Masfuufe" except for the word "khaashi'a" (surah 88 verse 2) which he read as "khaashi'ah"

A. What is the name of this way of stopping with name ending in "taa marbuutah"?

Secondly, in the same surah (88 verse 23) the reciter read with an imalah the word "tawala". However that imalah sounded different from the other imalah I know
such as in Warsh.

B. What is the name of the imalah used in the recitation of Ad Duri  from Kesai?

Jazakumullahu Khairan.  Wa Salamu aleikum wa rahmatulilahi wa barakatuh.

Question (4 Sha'baan1428/Aug. 17, 2007)

As-salaamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,

First of all I must thank you and say Jazakallah-hu khairun for your absolute brilliant work, May Allah Azzawajal grant you all the highest place in Jannah and give Barakah in your lives and Guide and protect us and take us from this world in the state that he the Almighty, is please with us. Aameen!

My questions are:
1. When reciting in the way of Hafs an Aasim RA the Mudood of Munfasil are stretched. But, especially in Salaah tul tut taraweeh I've heard many shuyookh's reciting with qasr only. is this allowed? and if so is this
another tareeq? it is also mentioned that there are many tareeqs would it be possible to tell me where I can learn these different tareeq from i.e. what Books, Ref Material I should read?.

2. In way of Imam Hamzah (khalaf and Khallad) is there two ways for reciting hamza after a Saakin letter? (sakt and naql-e-harkat) as I was told of one way only, and that's sakt but I've heard Sheikh Mishary al-Rashid doing both. Either way please enlighten me further on the topic.

3. When and what rules are going to be displayed on the internet of the Ten Qiraaah next?

Question (4 Sha'baan1428/Aug. 17, 2007)

As-salaamu`alaykum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuh

 

May Allaah grant you continuous success in assisting the Muslims with tajweed, ameen!

My question is concerning the names of the letters.  In the Qaaidah An-Nooriyyah and other Qaaidahs that I have seen,  The letters such as   etc...  are spelled without a hamzah as the last letter.  Instead of  it is simply .

I have read the tidbit on Al-Mudood part 9  - jazaakumullaahu kayran katheeraa.   Inshaa'Allaah can you provide some insight as to why the letters are spelled two different ways.

Your response is greatly appreciated and may Allaah give you the best rewards, ameen.
