أَنْعَمْتَ [Al Fatihah 7]
وَأَنتُمْ ظَالِمُونَ [Al Baqarah 51]
لَّكُمْ جَنَّاتٍ [Nuh 12]
كُنتُمْ خَيْرَ [Ali Imran 110]
ذَرَأَكُمْ فِ [Al Mulk 24]
Izhar Syafawi is letter Mim with the sign of Sukun who meets all Hijaiyah alphabet with any vowel except for the letters Baa and Mim.
Also, it can be defined that Izhar Syafawi is to manifest or clear the sound of Mim sakinah without buzzing or to hum (ghunnah).
All letters of Arabic alphabet or Hijaiyah except for:
The sign of Izhar Syafawi can be known by looking at Mim Sakinah which has a sukun sign on it, followed by the vowel letters of Arabic alphabet apart from letters Mim and Baa after it.
The pronunciation of Izhar Syafawi is must CLEARLY pronounced the sound of letter Mim Sakinah when it meets with (26) Arabic alphabet letters exclude letters Mim and Baa, by closing the lips and holding the sound from rising to the base of the nose to prevent the sound of buzzing (ghunnah). To ensure that there is no buzz (ghunnah) on the pronunciation, then the lips should be reopened as soon as they are closed.
This rule was named as Izhar because the letter Mim Sakinah must be pronounced clear in its recitation. Named as Syafawi because the sound of Mim Sakinah came out of the lips articulation points (Makhraj).
The reason for the pronunciation of Mim Sakinah when it meets these 26 letters is because of the difference between the articulation point (makhraj) of the Mim letter and the other conjunction letters.
Since the specific makhraj for the 26 letters cannot be limited, then the Izhar is not determined by any makhraj such as Izhar Halqi in the law of nun sakinah which is determined by the makhraj of the throat, then here the makhraj mim is determined only that is the lips.
