Have you ever come across something so simple that you’ve thought it’s too insignificant to consider… or take note of?
Many tajweed books nowadays have omitted this madd because of it’s necessity that comes naturally when reciting. Yet, I thought I should post it here so that you can all be more aware that such a rule exists.
Al-Madd Al-Tamkeen : occurs when a yaa mushaddadah with a kasr is followed by a yaa saakinah. This occurs only within a word, as words cannot start with a sukoon.
To be more specific: within a word, you notice a yaa that has a shaddah, and a kasra, this generally looks like this:
then you notice that after this yaa is another one, which has sukoon on it. Naturally as you pronounce this word, you are sounding this rule, al-madd al-tamkeen.
Examples of where this occurs in the Quran are as follow:
wa ithaa huyyeetum
wa khaatama al-nabiyyeen
As you may have noticed, sometimes it is written as two yaa-s, or sometimes only one yaa is written and the “mini” symbol for the second yaa (the yaa saakinah) is drawn.
That’s it for al-madd al-tamkeen! Can you guess why it’s classed as a madd?
