I want to know what is the right way to recite the last verse of Surah Fatiha,

is it Walaz Zauleen.

or Walad Dauleen.

what is the right sound one should make i have consulted many Molvi in this regard some say first method is correct and some say the second is correct i tried searching it here but didnt seem to find a relevant question.

1 Answer 1


This is the part of the verse which you are reffering to


I have never heard of the first one. I am from a country where alot people wrongfully pronounce the TH sound from ذ as a Z like sound but this is not TH sound it is a Tha ظـ which makes the D/TH sound. The Z sound is from letter zay ز. Listen to it in audio http://quran.com/1 and listen out for how the reciter pronounces it and look up various transliterations online. Basic tajweed is in order for this, so I recommend going to a quran class.

  • i have taken several Quran classes and thats where i was conflicted a few of preachers said to use the first one and few said use the second one.

    @anas the correct one is the second one, some old people pronounce the letter 'ض' in arabic as z but it is wrong.

  • I must agree with User689 and Jam its "walad dauleen" sounds like "walad Dthaaleen" the D/TH sound comes from the tounge against the inside of your cheek, I struggled with this sound, but my Ustaad form my darooloom helped me till I go it right .
