My question is about "nabr". When we recite "alif laam meem", since we are stretching the alif in "laam" for 6 counts and right after it there are 2 meem's (the meem of the "laam" and the meem of the "meem") which make a meem with a shaddah, do we have to make nabr when we're stretching the alif (according to the third circumstance of the nabr in recitation)?

jazakoumoullahu khairan for your time

Answer

Wa alaikum assalaam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh.

Jazakum Allahu khairan and may Allah give all khair to those studying the Qur’an and make them all closer to Allah.

One of the exceptions to   in both the circumstance of stopping with a word ending in a shaddah and when having a medd letter followed by a shaddah is the  and  with a shaddah on them.  The reason there is no need for  in these cases is that the most complete ghunnah that accompanies a  or  with a shaddah makes clear the shaddah and is easy on the mouth after a long medd.  One does have to take care to make sure there is collision of the two articulating parts though for both letters.

Wa iyyaakum wa-l-muslimeen.

Wa assalaam
