Assalam o alaikum ! In surat al ikhlas what will be the correct pronunciation; Qul Huwa Allaahu Ahad; or; Qul Hu Allaahu Ahad; and please mention reason for that. Fi Amanullah.


Wa alaikum assalaam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,

In aayah of one of surah Al-Ikhlaas:

We have the word   which has a wow with an accompanying fathah as its last letter.  This (wow) must be pronounced by the lips separating from a puckered position and then opened up for the fathah.  The English W is similar but not exactly the same.  After the (wow), there is a hamzah wasl on the Glorious name of Allah, , this hamzah is not pronounced when continuing from what precedes it, instead it is only pronounced when starting the word.  So if we start on the word, we start with a hamzah with a fahah on it.  If however, we are continuing reading from the preceding word, ,we go directly from the fathah on the wow to the laam saakinah of the two laams of the shaddah [on the laam] of , and do not pronounce the hamzah wasl at all. 

The pronunciation would somewhat be rendered in English letters as: huwa-llahu, with the sound continuous and not stopped.  It is important to remember that the “a” on the end of huwa, is the fathah on the wow and not the beginning of the Glorious name of Allah.

We highly recommend reading the Qur’an with Arabic letters, as the correct pronunciation cannot be properly done with English letters.  You may have included Arabic letters in your question, but they do not come through with the website submission form.  There were numbers and symbols that could have been  sent as Arabic words.

Wa assalaam alaikum.
