Assalaam alaikum,

I have been fortunate by the grace of Allah I know to read the Quran, but I would like to get more information on how to end the words at the end of a sentence. I mean there are vowels that I get confused with.

During  Ramadan I followed the Quran in the taraweeh  when the Imam was praying every day and I still couldn’t get it clearly .

Please help and let me know how do I distinguish them and what is the right way.

Are there are any websites or tapes that I could utilize to get my recitation better?

Best Regards.


Wa alaikum assalaam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,

 In Arabic, there is a rule that one should always start a phrase with a vowel as the first letter and always ends a phrase, or pauses with a sukoon.  In reading the Qur’an the rule stays the same for almost all circumstances.  So if we stop on the last word of an aayah, we put a temporary sukoon on the last letter and do not pronounce the vowel on that letter.

Although the lessons on stopping on the ends of words are considered advanced, you may benefit from the following link which has different lessons on stopping on the ends of words:

The best way to improve your recitation is to recite to and be corrected by a qualified teacher of the Qur'an.  Maybe the Imam of the mosque you go to can help you, or maybe there are some classes in your local mosque or Islamic Center.

Insha’ Allah this helps you and if you have any other questions, feel free to ask.
Wa assalaam alaikum.
