HOW TO PRONOUNCE
To SOFTEN the sound when stopping the recitation of a sentence that contains the non-vowel letters Mad Wau and Ya’ and previously vowel letters.
لَا رَيْبَ [Al Baqarah 2]
وَبِالْيَوْمِ [ Al Baqarah 8]
وَالصَّيْفِ [Quraysh 2]
الْبَيْتِ [Quraysh 3]
خَوْفٍ [ Quraysh 4]
Mad Lin means soft or mellow, to soften or to mellow the sound of the letter Mad. This is because the non-vowel letter Lin does not hold its voice, but it is pronounced with a soft and mellow voice pressure.
RATE OF HARAKAT
The rate of harakat for Mad Lin is 2, 4 or 6 harakat due to it being part of Mad ‘Aridh.
The sign of Mad Lin is the letters Wau and Ya’ must be marked with Sukun (non-vowel) and the previous letter must be vowel fathah . It is only counted as Mad Lin if you stop the recitation on it. If it continues to read it remains as the letter Lin.
This Mad is named as Lin because of the letter Lin which precedes the Sukun ‘Aridh (breadfruit that is brought to come) on the endowed letter.
- Since Mad Lin is part of Mad ‘Aridh then the elongation is also the same as Mad‘ Aridh, that is why this mad should be read with 2, 4 or 6 harakat on the side of the Qurra ‘.
- Only the letters Mad Wau and Ya’ are involved, Alif letters are not involved. Readers can choose whether to waqaf (stop) the reading at the rate of 2, 4 or 6 harakat. The reading must be soft / mellow and not hard.
