I see a lot of recitors moving their mouth a lot when they read, especially when pronouncing a letter with a dhamma or a long vowel of the same. Is this correct and necessary?  Can one read the dhamma correctly without pouting the lips?

Jazaakallahu khairan kathiran kathira. Wassalaamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuhu


Wa alaikum assalaam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh.

It is very important for the lips to be protruding forward in a circle when pronounced the dhammah for it to come out correctly.  The honorable Sheikh Shihaab Ad-Deen Ahmed bin Ahmed At-Tayyibee mentioned this in some lines of poetry:

And every [letter] with a dhammah is never completed,         
without with a complete dhammah of the two lips.

And the one with lowering (kasrah) with a lowering of the mouth,               
it completes, and the one with a fat-h with a fat-h [of the mouth], understand!”

Of course when move the lips and jaw, we should not exaggerate the motions to the point where they are excessive.  This is found more in some who make extraneous movements not part of the normal mouth and jaw movements.
