This marks the only place in the Hafs reading of the Quran where imala is applied. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Im%C4%81la#section_2 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 ...

When the Quran is being recited/played, you are required to listen to it attentively. Allah (SWT) says: So, when the Qur’aan is recited, listen to it, and be silent that you may receive mercy -Sura Araf 7:204 This is a very clear command from Allah (SWT) that we should respect, listen and learn from the Quran whenever it is recited, so that we can receive ...

It's not true. You can continue with whatever device, book, or even by reciting from your memory. The important thing is what you read not from where you read it; as long as it is Quran, it doesn't matter.

Most scholars tend to say that it's acceptable to read from a Mushaf/Moshaf in Nafl (sunna) prayers like taraweeh/tarawih in Ramadan (of course if there's a hafidh/hafiz among the congregation it's preferable that he leads the prayer because of this hadith). As an example um al mu'mminyn 'Aisha had a servant (slave?) as her imam in taraweeh prayer and he ...

The difference between moshaf and Qur'an 1st you should know that the book you hold in your hand where the quranic text is in is a Moshaf مصحف. The Quran in first place refers to the orally transmitted text which content originally was kept as single "papers/pages" (quoted as the sahaba -may Allah be pleased with them- used everything "clean" they could ...

All Praise to Allah Subhanahu wa Taala and blessings of Him be on Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him His family and companions Yeah is is Mustahab and Sunnah to read the Quran in the month of ramadan as it is following the way of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him.He used to revise the Quran with Angel Gabriel(AS) during the month of Ramadan. Narrated ...

This is a mix of two things: A transliteration of an Arabic text: as there are no fixed rules or at least those people whom transliterate don't use the exact rule or at least don't explain wich of the common rules they use. (See for example this one proposed in our meta site and this Wikipedia Article). Rules of tajweed: as the rules of tajweed let the text ...

The Quran wasn't distributed as a book to be read. Verses were revealed on the fly, to address issues as they arose. The Prophet proclaimed the verses on the pulpit, and in sermons and recited them aloud while leading congregational prayers, which were attended by both men and women. Narrated Ibn Abbas: (My mother) Umu-l-Fadl heard me reciting "Wal ...

I'm not aware of a reference in Quran or Hadith about this topic. The prophet and his companions PBUH/T did learn the Quran by heart, so they haven't had this issue. If the Quran doesn't treat this matter it is of lesser ethical significance than halal/haram issues. Now, if everyone did read off from the Quran, then who would want to learn it by heart? It ...

As The Prophet Shallallahu 'alaihi wasallam like to hear the Quran, so should we. Ibn Mas'ud (Radiyallahu 'anhu) reported: The Prophet (Shallallahu 'alaihi wasallam) said to me, 'Recite the Qur’an to me.' I said, 'Ya Rasoolallah! Shall I recite it to you when it was revealed to you?' He (Shallallahu 'alaihi wasallam) said, 'I like to hear it from ...

If the manuscript you want to read from includes the original Qur'an verses in Arabic, in addition to the associated translation, it carries the same rules as a mus-haf, i.e., you can only touch it and subsequently read from it, only after performing wudū' (ablution). This is based on multiple evidence, e.g., the hadith in Muwatta' Malik 15/1 narrated ...

That is called hamzat al-wasl, which means that in normal cases the alif is, as you were told, silent. Some styles will write the symbol above the alif, but others will just leave the alif unmarked: It is the same either way. However, if it's at the beginning of speech, you can't just leave it silent. How it's pronounced in those cases is a bit tricky, ...

They are identical. When you have the letter waw (و) following a tanween (تنوين), the rule is to apply idgham (إدغام). Idgham in recitation means pronunciation of both that tanween with a nasal n sound and the waw as separate letters. In the first form ('Uthmani), the tanween marks are not vertically aligned (there is a slight angle), which denotes idgham. ...

And do not marry polytheistic women until they believe. And a believing slave woman is better than a polytheist, even though she might please you. And do not marry polytheistic men [to your women] until they believe. And a believing slave is better than a polytheist, even though he might please you. Those invite [you] to the Fire, but Allah invites ...

First note that your question title is asking about 6 letters while the content only reveals 4! The best way is to look for a hafidh who has a connected chain to the prophet and learn from him the so called makharij al-Huruf مخارج الحروف first. See also Need proper pronunciation of various Arabic alphabets to read Quran correctly IMHO ظ is the only ...

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 ...

Briefly, yes, it's permissible to read (not talking about salat) the Quran in english, while not reading the Arabic part. I think that even if a person reads in Arabic, that person will understand the Quran by his limitations in the Arabic language. Most of the translations are translated from a certain type of understanding of the Arabic language. So, even ...

It is best to read the quran with understanding and contemplation. If you read the whole quran in a day, then it CAN be that you are not reading it, as it should be read. You can read the quran at almost anytime and place, you want.

Surely it is best to understand what the Quran teaches. Prophet Muhammad was a walking Quran. Many of today's translations capture the meaning very well. I translated the Quran, did my best to keep the meaning intact, and made it easy to read. It is posted here: http://www.ClearQuran.com

Allah (ﷻ) is Perfect. Part of His Perfection is that He cannot be undermined by those who take Him as their enemy (ie, the disbelievers). He thwarts their plots against Him and His followers, and implements counter plots to prevent further transgressions. The problem in your understanding is your implied premise that scheming/deceiving is immoral thereby ...

The best option is already in my linked answers (Reading Qu'ran even we do not understand Arabic during Ramadan? and Reading the Quran in Ramadan) reading qur'an while trying to understand it. There's no need to finish or complete a recitation, as there is no clear backup for that in the sunnah. It is something people made a sunnah lately, as almost ...

No, it was intended to be read by both genders, what you see is because of two reasons: Qur'an is addressed to Prophet Muhammad. Even in many verses it says : قل as in say...as God is commanding Prophet Muhammad to something, or he's simply speaking to him and his life. There many many verses in Qur'an that are about men & women, believing men and women,...

To know where the letters Arabic are "pronounced" from is important to learn reading the Quran and speaking Arabic correctly. The first thing a student of tajweed learns is the so called مخارج الحروف Articulation of sound, there he learns how each Arabic letter is pronounced and where the phonation is localized. Unfortunately I'm neither a great linguist in ...

Honestly I'd recommend reading and understanding, because Ramadan is the month of Quran because of many verses such as in surat al-Baqrah or al-Qadr. From the sunnah we learn that Jibreel (Peace be upon him) used to teach, study or revise the Quran with our Messenger (Peace be upon him) during Ramadan, so this is what we might have to do in first place. (...

The katmah as a completation of reading the Qur'an First how you read the quran or complete it is basically irrelevant. But if you want to complete it then each of you should have read the whole quran -no matter if it was in the correct order or not- , else you won't get the rewards of completing it (see the fatwa islamqa #50781). The only rewards you may ...

Some evidences "I came to 'Ali with two other men and he said: 'The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) used to come out of the toilet and recite Qur'an, and he would eat meat with us and nothing would prevent him from (reciting) Qur'an except Janabah." (Sunan an-Nasa'i, with some diffrences Sunan abi Dawod, with a slight difference sunan ibn Majah, appears ...

There's no correct way to recite the qur'an. For qualifying a correct manner for the recitation you need to be more specific: Are you male or female is there an audience or not? If so what kind of audience (gender, belief etc.)? What is your intention when you recite? Are you listening to your recitation or trying to apply the rules of tajweed or just ...

It is not compulsory or needed to read Qur'an on mobiles with wudu or purity of menses as scholars classify the Qur'an on mobiles (soft copies) to not be related to the rules that apply to the written Qur'an (hard copy). They explain that the Qur'an on mobiles is just a wave pattern of electrical and magnetic energy vibrating through space and therefore ...

As servant pointed out we should follow the sunnah of the Prophet (peace be upon him) and do our best to read the quran, especially in Ramadan as we know that it's the month of the quran. But even if we know that our Messenger (peace be upon him) used to study the quran with Jibreel each Ramadan and in his last Ramadan he has been revised twice. There's no ...
