Question (25 Rabee' Thanee 1424/June 25, 2003)

Assalaam alaikum

In regards to ayah 16 of Surah Al-Jinn, I came across a Qur'an with translation which is written with the nun saakinah , while the Uthmani script has dropped the nun sakinah.

Why is it so? Has this got to do with your section on "Words written separately and joined"? 

Thank you Sir


Question (22 Rabee' Thanee 1424/June 22, 2003)

Assalam alaikum

Mashallah the tajweed website is very useful for those teaching and learning tajweed. I would like to know if there is any reference available on saying "sadaq-allah-ul-azeem" at the end of recitation. Or saying "sadaqa-rasoolihil-kareem" and reading the darood/salawaat after finishing recitation of any part of alquran.

 Jazakum Allahu khairan


Question (21 Rabee' Thanee 1424/June 21, 2003)

Assalam alaikum.

I know of the rule of noon and meem mushaddad, is it posted anywhere on your
site?  Plus is there any letter (for example laam) on which prolonging of
the shaddah is allowed in of the 7 qira'ah?

Jazakum Allahu khairan.

Question (19 Rabee' Thanee 1424/June 19, 2003)

I want to know each word coming point.


Question (17 Rabee' Thanee 1424/June 17, 2003)

As-Salaamu Alaikum.  At the each end each aayat in surah Al-Fatihah for an example: Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem, how long do u hold the heem (how many counts) at the end of the aayat?

And in the same surah where we say Walad Daaaa leen, how many counts do u hold the Daaaa?
As-Salaamu Alaikum


Question (17 Rabee' Thanee 1424/June 17, 2003)

Assalamu alikum,

Perhaps I haven't perused your site thoroughly enough, but have you included the rules for Hafs by which one can start a surah and continue between suwar using the basmalah?
i.e. ...waladaaaleena bismillaahirrahmaanirraheemi alif..... and various combinations thereof.

was salam


Question (13 Rabee' Thanee 1424/June 13, 2003)  

assalamua'alaikum wa rahmatu Allahi wa barakatuht,

I would like to know what is the best approach to teach children tajweed? Shall I follow the same syllabus we used to teach adult but by simplifying the words? (For eg, the syllabus like the one in the book Tajweed Rules Of The Quran,).

 Do I need to give complete definition as in 'Istilah', not only in language? (for all rules)

What is the minimum year to introduce tajweed lesson?

JazakumuLLahu khairan katheera


Question (6 Rabee' Thanee 1424/June 6, 2003)  

Asalaamu alaikum wrwb
 I would like some help in pronouncing the sukkon "raa".  I know the makhraj of raa, but do not know how to make a sukoon on it.  I have been told that I ought to hit the appropriate part of my mouth with my tongue a number of times to achieve this.  If so, how many times do I oscillate it, and in what direction is the movement: up/down or back/forwards.

At the moment I am unable to make sukoon at all (or for that matter raa voweled).  it sounds almost like a sighing sound like haaaw when trying to say "har".
Would appreciate any suggestions, jazaa kallhu khairan.


Question (5 Rabee' Thanee 1424/June 5, 2003)  


Could you please tell me what is temporary kasra? Also in the ra with a shaddah and a fatha, preceeded by an alphabet with a kasra, are both the ra's pronounced heavy or is the first ra prounced soft as in bismillah hir rahman? Does a round ta with a tanween fatha change to a round ha with a sukoon or a round ha with a fatha and an alif in case of a stop?
