Assalamu aleikum wa rahmatu lilahi wa barakatu

I would like to know whether or not the word "Salāt" in general, but in surat al baqarah verse 153 in particular,  is it read with tafkheem in the riwayah of Hafs by way of shatibbiyyah. If no, is it read with tafkheem in the riwayah of warsh? Because I have heard it (the word salāt) pronounced in 2 different ways: one with no emphasis and the other with tafkheem.

May Allah increase our interest in the knowledge of tajweed and the recitation of Al Qur'an inshallah

Wa salamu alaikum

Answer

Wa alaikum assalaam wa rahmatu Allahi wa barakatuh. The letter  in the word is read with tafkheem of the in all of the different qir’aaat, but only the recitation of Warsh has additional tafkheem of the  and the following alif.  This rule is for all of the occurrences of the word in the Qur’an and not specific for a particular aayah. Hafs then does not make tafkheem of the  and following alif in this word in any place in the Qur’an. 

Ameen to your dua’.

Wa assalaam alaikum wa rahmatu Allah.
