As all Muslims know that it is obligatory for everyone to learn the Quran by following all the Tajweed rules, so there is a need to understand the mistakes, which we make while reading the Holy Quran. We need to understand the difference in mistakes as well to make sure that we are reciting it by following all the specific rules of recitation.
To help the Muslims in this regard, we will list down the mistakes in the following post and guide accordingly.
There are two types of mistakes, which are called Lahan Jalee (Clear Mistakes) and Lahan Khafee (Hidden Mistakes). Clear Mistakes are those in which we do not pronounce the letters correctly, so the chances of mixing the sound increase. Due to these mistakes, the meanings can be changed, which is a clear violation and every Muslim must avoid these.
On the other hand, Hidden Mistakes are those in which we do not perfectly pronounce the letters and it is obvious for those who are not native speakers of Arabic. You can rectify these mistakes through studying Tajweed rules and for that, you need a good Quran Teacher or an Online Quran Tutor, who will polish your pronunciation and help you improve artistically in the Quran reading.
Let’s explore some examples of both the mistakes!
Examples of Clear Mistakes
You give the sound of the different letter while using a letter, e.g. saying Kaaf (ك) instead of Qaaf (ق)or saying seen (س) instead of saad (ص), etc.
- You use short vowels when there is a long vowel or vice versa. For example, you say barakah instead of harakah.
- You do not follow the elongations (Long Madd, Short Mudd, Long Zabar). If there is a long Mudd, we need to elongate it up to five long zubur and three times when there is a short Mudd.
- You stop at incorrect places and can spoil the actual meanings of the sentence.
Examples of Hidden Mistakes
- You do not know how long must be a Mudd. Making the Mudd shorter or longer is a hidden mistake and can be improved if
- you will learn Quran with Tajweed online.
- You do not know the attributes of each letter and pronounce them wrongly. For example, you slightly roll the “Raa” or exaggerate the sound of “Noon” when there is no need for it.
- You do not follow the rules of idghaam and ith-haar. It means that you do not know how to merge or separate in different situations and with different symbols.
- You pronounce light words heavily or heavy words lightly.
The scholars have developed the Tajweed rules by following the saying of Allah and established Sunnah. If we want to get the maximum benefits of the Quran not only in this world but also hereafter, we need to read the Quran as Allah says in the Quran and according to the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
