My question is about the letter "ra" in surat Al Qadr
One of the takhfeem rules of the "ra" states that if the letter "ra" is saakinah and the letter before the "ra" is also saakin and the letter preceding that saakin letter bears a fatha then the "ra" should be read with takhfeem. Therefore, and as the perfect example, is the "ra" in the five verses of surat Al Qadr (surah 97) read with takhfeem when stopping at each verse and not when continuing?

Yes, because all of the end of the aayaat in surah al-Qadr end in a with a kasrah, when continuing the is read with tarqeeq, and when stopping all the ra’aat are preceded by a sukoon which is preceded by a fath, so when stopping these aayaat are all read with tafkheem of the . So you are correct, and it is not uncommon that this surah is used for an exam question on tafkheem and tarqeeq of the .
Wa assalaam assalaam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh.
