I've read Surah Yasin many times, but recently I got curious about a symbol in the Surah. I tried to find a solution in Internet by searching Tajweed rules: I found something similar but I am not sure if it refers to the same symbol.

This is an image of the symbol I'm asking about:

Alhamdulillah, I can answer your question, brother (or sister).

You should stop reading for a second in this symbol but can't breathe (you should hold your breath). Click here to hear the verse.

This symbol is 4 times in Al-Quran.

  • Kahf - 18:1
  • Yaseen - 36:52
  • Qiyamah - 75:27
  • Mutaffifin - 83:14

Hope that the answer will be helpful for you.
