|The Mudood (Lengthenings) Part 7|
The previous few lessons explained the different lengthenings caused by hamzah. These lessons are now located in the tidbit archives.
The Lengthening with a Presented Sukoon
Its definition: This medd occurs when there is only one letter after one of the three medd letters, it is the last letter of the word, this last letter has any vowel on it, and we are stopping on the last letter with a presented sukoon.
The Soft Lengthening
Its Definition: It occurs when a “leen” letter
The difference between and
The presented sukoon lengthening
When we stop at the word , we stop with the soft lengthening (). This “leen” lengthening can be lengthened 2, 4, or 6 counts. Three words later, if we stop on the last word of the aayah , we stop with a presented sukoon lengthening that must be equal to the selected length of the “leen” medd or stronger. If for example we stop on the word with two vowel counts, we can stop on the word with our choice of 2, 4, or 6 counts, since all are equal to or greater than the two vowel counts we used for the “leen” lengthening. If however, we stop on the “leen” lengthening on the word with four vowel counts, we can only stop on the word with the presented sukoon lengthening with either four or six vowel counts.
When the stronger medd which is the presented sukoon lengthening
If we stop on the word there is a presented sukoon lengthening, since there is an alif before the last letter, and we put a presented sukoon on the last letter when stopping. We can stop on the presented sukoon lengthening () with 2, 4, or 6 vowel counts. A second place to stop in this aayah is on the word . There is a saakinah preceded by a fat-h making a “leen” letter and this is followed by only one letter. When stopping on this word, we put a presented sukoon on the last letter of the word, in this case , and now have a soft lengthening (). The “leen” lengthening must be equal or less than the presented sukoon lengthening. If we stop on the word with four vowel counts, we can only stop on the word with two or four vowel counts. If we stop on the word with two vowel counts, we can only stop on the word with two counts. Lastly, if we choose to stop on the word with six vowel counts, we then can stop on the word with two, four, or six vowel counts, since all are equal or less to the six vowel counts we used for the presented sukoon lengthening on the word .
