Tajweed Rules - Part 2

Moving on with our tajweed series, I'm aware that I'm skipping a few rules here. The reason I jumped to Hams is because I need it for my next post. Another miracle post.

The Whisper, defined linguistically as: the concealment

The applied definition of this characteristic is: Running on of breath when pronouncing the letter due to weakness in its origin, when weakening reliance on the letter at its articulation point of origin.

This means that when any of the letters that have the characteristic of , there is a flow of breath as it is pronounced. This weakens the letter as running of breath then weakens the strict reliance on the articulation point.

The letters that have this characteristic are the letters found in the group: . All of these 10 letters are pronounced with a running of breath. One letter to note in this group is the letter . If pronounced like the “f” in English, there will not be the needed air flow. The English “f” is articulated from the edges of the two upper front teeth and middle of the lower lip. The Arabic has the same articulation point, but the part of the lip used is more towards the inside. If a slight adjustment is made in the placement of the two front teeth on the lip, the air flow will then occur and the proper sound for the which includes air flow will be heard, insha’ Allah.

The two letters have running of the breath when they are pronounced, but they also have another characteristic of imprisonment of sound (not breath, but sound). We will discuss how to employ both these characteristics when we discuss the imprisonment of sound in the next tidbit lesson.
