Tajweed Course for beginner Part-6
Al-IQLAB(NOON SAKINAH) الإقلابَ
Iqlaab means: – “to turn over”.
Iqlaab In Tajweed: When ‘Noon Sakin’ ( ن ) or a letter with tanween is followed by the letter (ب) ,then the ‘nun sakin’ ( ن ْ)or ‘tanween’ will be changed into the letter ‘meem’ ( م ).
The ‘meem’ will be recited with a nasal sound (ghunna) – the ghunna will be held for two counts. In some books, a small ( م ) will be written over the ‘nun’ as a reminder of its pronunciation.
Iqlaab letters:- “ ب ”.
How to pronounce hidden meem ?
Pronouncing the hidden meem by closing the lips and holding the meem for the length of the ghunnah, then opening them with the baa.
You may note that most copies of the Qur’an have very small meem ( َ م )written over letter noon ( ن )or the second dammah or fat-hah or kasrah of the tanween is replaced by a small meem.
