Noon And Meem Mushaddad

One of the main benefits of learning the Qur’an with Tajweed is mentioned in the hadith of the Prophet “Those who can recite the Qur’an accurately and precisely will attain the highest ranks in Heaven” because the Holy Qur’an is the only book that its recitation is considered a form of worship with great reward.

Allah The Almighty said:

“And recite the Qur’an with a chant”, i.e., do not rush to read the Qur’an, but rather read it slowly and clearly while reflecting on the meanings.

Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said:

“The one who is proficient with the Qur’an will be with the noble and righteous scribes (the angels), and the one who reads it and stumbles over it, finding it difficult, will have two rewards.”

Ibn Al-Jazari also “Most Famous Tajweed Scholar” said:

“The practical application of Tajweed is without doubt compulsory. Who does not read the Quran correctly is a sinner”.

Meem And Noon Mushaddad


قَالَ سَنَشُدُّ عَضُدَكَ بِأَخِيكَ

Qaala sanashuddu ‘adudaka bi akheeka

Allah said: “We will strengthen your arm through your brother..”

In Arabic, there are diacritics including the “fat-ha – dhammah – kasrah” that can be the reason a word’s meaning changes completely. One of these diacritics is the shaddah. Insha’Allah We will explain what this is and move on to the rule of Noon and Meem Mushaddad.

Shaddah meaning is “[sign of] emphasis”. In general, is to make something tight. But how? It stresses a letter by doubling the sound. As given in other related posts [see Noon Saakinah], a shaddah consists of two letters [doubling]:

Shaddah Explanation

The mechanism of pronouncing this Meem mushadadah:

• Closing the lips together and keeping it closed making the Ghunnah (nasalization) from nose.

• Keeping the tongue in its articulation point and making ghunnah for two counts.

• Whenever the letters noon or meem have shaddah sign, they are pronounced with ghunnah for 2 seconds.

Mushaddad Letter

The first letter is sakin, has sukoon sign on it while the second one has a respective diacritic, fat-ha, dammah, or kasrah.

فَوَيْلٌ لِلَّذِينَ

fawaylun lillatheena

Here we noted that the first shaddah on laam was there for notice purposes, and the second was there to be a shaddah and double that second laam. So is read as:

lil-latheena as written above, lillatheena

A few more examples of shaddah as follow:

كَرَّةً فَنَتَبَرَّأَ

karratan fanatabarra‘a

karratan fanatabarra’a

وَالْمُطَلَّقَاتُ يَتَرَبَّصْنَ

wal mutallaqaatu yatarabbasna

wal mutallaqaatu yatarabbasna

وَبُعُولَتُهُنَّ أَحَقُّ بِرَدِّهِنَّ

bu‘ulatuhunna ahaqqu birad-dihin-na

bu‘ulatuhunna ahaqqu biraddihinna

After we made shaddah clear, Tajweed rule regarding shaddah is as follows. For every noon and meem have a shaddah, one must sound a ghunnah.

Ghunnah is a sound made by nose from nasal passage. It is almost like a hum. Ghunnah is translated to “nasalisation” and this should not be longer than 2 seconds.

Noon Mushaddad Rules

 إِنَّ أَنَّ  منَّا  إنَّك  إِنَّا  إِنَّما

Meem Mushaddad Rules

إِمَّا وإِمَّا  أمَّن  فأَمَّا  فإِمَّا

And it is as simple as that! This Tajweed rule is complete! Where you see a shaddah on a meem or noon, just make ghunnah. As for Tajweed, just remember shaddah + meem or noon = ghunnah.
