As-salaamu alaykum, and ramadan kareem,


Could you please explain mu’anaqah. I understand that one needs to stop only at one out of two points marked with muanaqah (the three dot symbol).


However, what do the words “aindal muta’akhkhireen” and “aindal mutaqaddimeen” mean? And what is the significance of numbers placed near these words?


Jazakallah khayr



Wa alaikum assalaam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh.

Ramadhaan Mubaarak to you also, and to all the Muslims

The embracing stop, or is symbolized in the copy of some Qur'ans as a set of three dots in a triangle form,

such as found in the beginning of surah al-Baqarah:

These markings are all part of modern enhancements to the Qur'an, and the Medinah Printing Complex does not use it in their latest printing; although the markings were present in previous publishings.  The additional comments you noted: “aindal muta’akhkhireen” and “aindal mutaqaddimeen” are those we have not seen before, but refer to the choice of old scholars and new scholars.  Saying that, one is left a little confused since it is a modern enhancement.  We have not seen the numbers or these comments in copies of the Qur'an, so cannot assist you as to the numbers.  It is possible there are footnotes at the end of the copy of the Qur'an you have, and these numbers refer to the footnote, but we are only guessing. 
Wa iyyaakum.
Wa assalaam alaikum.
