Question
Assalaamu alaikum wa rahmatu Allah,
May Allah reward you in this life and in the next with the best of rewards for your beneficial service and website.
I have a question for you that came up in our Tajweed class recently. One sister
who is used to using a mushaf printed in India (or Pakistan) - and for whom it would be difficult to change to a "Medina" copy -  was wondering if the word "Anaa" (meaning the person speaking) is always read *without* the madd on the end when continuing the reading and *with* it when stopping on it. In the Medina copies there is a circle over it which indicates to do this. But I don't know if it is always there (i.e always read this way )throughout the mushaf. In her mushaf there is no circle or anything written over the alif wherever it may be. So it would be useful for her to know that it is always read like that...
Jazakumu Allahu bi kulli khair.

Answer
Wa alaikum assalaam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,
And may Allah give you all khair in both lives also and give you the great reward which comes with teaching the Qur'an. Ameen.
Yes, in the reading of Hafs, the word   meaning "I" is read without the alif when continuing and with the established alif when stopping wherever it occurs in the Qur'an.  It is one of the seven alifaat words which have this rule.  She can find these seven words at:

She needs to scroll down to case two. 

Wa iyyaakum wa-l-muslimeen.
