 A. Words normally written with but sometimes written with an open
If a word normally written with the female ha’   ()is written with an open then Ibn Katheer stops on this word with a .

An example of this is the word rahmah.gif . This word is usually written as in the example, with a female as the last letter (). There are places in the Qur’an where this word is written with an open , as: rahmat.gif, and when it is written as such, Ibn Katheer stops on the word with a , not a .  This is different than the recitation of Hafs which always follows the writing of the word.

Another example would be the word ni3mah.gifwhich is sometimes written as:ni3mat.gif. In both cases, Ibn Katheer stops on these words with a .
These are just two examples, there are other words normally written with a that are written in the some places in the copies of the Qur’an with an open . Please see http://www.abouttajweed.com/the-female-ha-written-with-a-ta-/index.php (all four parts of these lessons) to learn all the words.

3. al-bazee_words_meem_stop_with_ha.gif
       Al-Bazee stops on each of these words with an added saakinah as one of two allowed ways he has for stopping on these words  
(bikhulf_3anhu.gif).  In this way of reading, Al-Bazee keeps the fath.jpgon the  meem.jpg then adds the saakinah when stopping. The other allowed way Al-Bazee has for stopping on these words is with a sukoon on the meem.jpg with no added , which is the way Qunbul and Hafs 'an 'Aasim stop on this word.
