Tajweed Advanced Course (Part 1) The meeting of two letters Part 1 (introduction) (الحرفان الملتقيان الجزء الاول (المقدمة
The study of the relationships between letters when they meet in writing and pronunciation is important in determining whether the first letter is pronounced clearly or whether possibility or even a requirement of the first letter merging into the second.
- So we have to learn which letters can merge with others and under which circumstances.
- There are four possible different categories that the two meeting letters can fall under, These categories will be discussed further bi-idhnillah .
The meeting of two letters is of three different ways:
- Meeting of the two in pronunciation and writing, in that there is no separation between them, such as the two “ب baa“ وَلَا يَغْتَب بَّعْضُكُم Such as the two laam هل لكم
- Meeting of the two in writing only, such as in: (سَمِيعٌ عَلِيمٌ – إِنَّهُ هُوَ ) here the two haaare next to each other but maddas-silahprevents them from being pronounced together by the way we read (Hafs An Aassim).
- – Meeting of the two in pronunciation only in as: أَنَا النَّذِيرُ In this case the alif separates the two noon from each other, but since the alif is not pronounced, the two noon meet in pronunciation.
The first type is what will be discussed , the second and third type do not enter this section or do not
apply to the way we read.
When discussing the relationship of two letters that meet, it does not matter whether they meet in one
word or are in two different words, and the letters meet each other by one being at the end of a word and the other at the beginning of the next word.
