The timing of each count depends on the speed of the reciter.

Each vowel should be equal in count to the other, and the Mudood of two, four, five, and six counts should be equal to that many vowels.

Vowel: Is the time needed to pronounce one letter with fat-hah or dammah or kasrah. The time of all voweled letter the same
Example: =(  َ ق   ِق = ُ ق َ س = ِس = ُ س = َ ت = ِ ت = ت ُ= َ ق = ق  = ُ ق     ) ……..
When we say 2 vowel counts means time needed to pronounce two successive voweled letter with fat-hah or dammah or kasrah. The time needed to pronounce   ما = مو = مي

Note 2:

Included in natural madd is the group of letters.   ( حى طهـر  )

Which are letters that start some surahs of the Quran. If any one of these letters is at the beginning of a surah, the letter is read with two vowel counts.

Example:  طه   pronounced    طا   ها
