Tajweed Rules for Warsh 'an Naafi
These three rules are only part of the complete set of rules of Warsh.
The recitation of Warsh has three allowable ways to join two surahs together:
Joining the first surah with the next following surah with a basmalah at the
beginning of the new surah. A reminder, it is not allowed to recite the
last aayah of the first surah and join it with the basmalah then stop, then
read the first aayah of the next following surah. Any other combination is
allowed of joining or cutting off and breathing. This way of joining of two
surahs is not allowed between surah Al-Anfaal and surah At-Tawbah, since
surah At-Tawbah has no basmalah.
B. A breathless pause between last word of the last aayah of the first surah and the first aayah of the next following surah with no basmalah.
C. : Joining the last words of the first surah with the first words of the following surah with no basmalah.
Warsh makes of the dhammah on the plural if the first letter of the following word starts with a hamzah al- qata’ , an example is the phrase: , which is found in more than one place in the Qur'an, one of them being aayah 62 of surah Al-Baqarah (2:62). The length of the is the same as all of the mudood for Warsh, six vowel counts.
