What exactly is the diamond mark printed in some mushafs in Surah Hud, verse 41, under the ra in "majrahaa"? Does this change the pronunciation?

  • You'll find the same mark in surat Yusuf legacy.quran.com/12/11 again, but this time with a different hukm of tajweed.

This marks the only place in the Hafs reading of the Quran where imala is applied.

In the Hafs reading, you don't pronounce the vowel in the middle of "majraha" as a regular aliph. Instead, you pronounce it like the letter "A" in "fate". You should find an audio sample of the ayah by a good qari to get it exactly right.

This is called Imala, and the word in the Hafs reading that has Imala is the Ayah in your question. It changes the"Fathah" a A sound to a "Kasra" a "e" or "i" sound, and it changes the "Alif" to a " Ya' ", so instead of saying "Majraha" you say "Majreha" or "Majriha".

You can hear it from a good reciter at Qur'an Explorer, chose Abdul Basit as the reciter or the down from him.

Majriha to be read majrayha(alquran Hud 11:41) The right pronunciation version hafs the slang of an Arabic tribe(i=e but instead read it as ray ...maj ray ha) the only place in our holy quran being noted/marked with the diamond symbol(imala) ...in the name of Allah while the boat stoping or cruizing...Q11:41)..Allahuaklam
