    Default Punctuation and pronounciation

    It's strange how long I've managed to go and not understand punctuation in my Quran. Inshallah any mistakes will be forgiven.


    م = وقف لازم (compulsory / necessary pause)
    قلى = الوقف أولى (pausing is preferable)
    صلى = الوصل أولى (continuing / joining is preferable)
    لا = لا تقِفْ (Donít pause)
    ط = الوقف المطلق (unqualified pause)
    ج = الوقف الجائز (permissible pause)

    I have a question related to listening to audio recitations.

    Why do the sometimes repeat the last word or two and then continue?
    Also, what are the rules that govern how a letter changes if it is followed by any of the above pauses?

    I've been listening to audio quran a lot and sometimes the pronounciation throws me. I'll try and keep track and maybe post an example here.

    If sentence is complete at a point of waqf that doesn't have any of the above signs, then there is no need to go back a few words. You can make ibitda from following word. If sentence is incomplete at a point of waqf then going back to a point and starting from there is done to make sentence more complete. For example If you recite Ya Ayyuha ladeena aamanoo and due to madd run out of breath and make waqf Idtaraari and amaanoo or on following word, then starting back from Al-ladeena amaanoo makes it more complete.

    Also, what are the rules that govern how a letter changes if it is followed by any of the above pauses?
    I am not sure I understand this question. Can you clarify?

    Thanks for the reply, that makes complete sense. At first I was thinking that they don't sound out of breath but of course they wouldn't they are trying to make a good recording of the Quran!

    In regards to my second question I mean for example if a word ends in Tanwin and is at the end of the Ayah it isn't pronounced with Tanwin.
    Example being Surah 112 verse 1:
    It is pronounced Qul huwa Allahu ahad
    However is written Qul huwa Allahu ahadun

    Are there similar rules for when you pause?

    For ayahs ending with tanwin, yes what you said is one of the rule similar to what is done by not pronouncing the airaab of end huruf. Like even in Arabic language, while saying you say "Sayyarah" (meaning car) but it is actually written as "Sayyaratun" and also words without Tau tanees like "Al-bahar" although it is written as "Al-baharu". Even in Quran recitation, the end airaab of huruf is ommitted.
