Have you ever come across something so simple that you’ve thought it’s too insignificant to consider… or take note of?

Yet, I thought I should post it here so that you can all be more aware that such a rule […]

Do you enjoy really long walks? By the seaside or greenery? If you enjoy lengthy “anythings”, then you’ll definitely enjoy sounding this lengthy madd…   Al-Madd Al-Laazim: necessary prolongation is the longest madd in tajweed.

The time it takes to repair and re-connect depends on how frequent you undergo a check up. Remember to revisit your heart’s checklist [emotion, faith, intentions, etc] occasionally in order to shorten the time it needs to wholeheartedly repent and re-connect with Allah. Keep in mind though, this isn’t the only connection you’ll need to take […]

Lean meat, lean on me, leniency…. Which “leen” is it? Let’s find out. Al-Madd Al-Leen[1]: easy/eased prolongation only occurs when the reciter is stopping recitation after the word containing the madd, eg. for a breath, or at the end of an ayah, etc. Let’s look at why this is so. Al-madd al-leen occurs when a waaw saakinah […]

In the same way we sometimes wished that our holiday period can be a little longer, your tongue, ears and some letters themselves wish that they’re said for a little longer. ‘Why?’, you may think… Well, how obscure to the ear is it to hear someone say a dammah instead of a waaw? And how […]
