Arabic Throat Letters In Arabic

For correct Quran recitation, it is important to review the Tajweed guidelines quickly. Today, we'll briefly discuss the reason that Arabic throat letters require such careful pronunciation. A word of caution here. One approach is to study and learn the Quran using the Tajweed method. First and foremost, you must behave appropriately and act like an adult to perform Wudu (wuzu).

Therefore, let's thoroughly learn the Arabic alphabet. You must know that Haroof means letters in order to pronounce throat Arabic letters. Here, Harf refers to a single letter, Halq to the throat, and Makhrij to the letter's origin or "home" These are facts that many speakers of English and Urdu are unaware of. When speaking Arabic, almost all of the muscles and organs of the mouth are involved.

With the exception of the letters "Puh," "Cuh," and "Guh," Arabic uses all of the fundamental consonant and vowel sounds. In "Xiao," even the letter "X" is present. As a result, when reciting the six Arabic throat letters, they should be read correctly. They must be spoken aloud while using the appropriate muscle group and making the corresponding sound.

The Main 6 Arabic Throat Letters

When reading or memorizing the Quran, six Arabic throat letters are spoken from the throat. We are going to discuss them in detail right now.  You'll have no trouble remembering them and learning them this way.

Group 1 – AQSAL HALQ

These are the sounds coming out of your mouth. Some people are curious about the Arabic full-mouth letters. In any case, the Arabic full-mouth letters are as follows:

  • غ Ghayn. To read this letter, moisten the back of your throat and roll it like a "g" with your tongue to read it. While not identical, it is quite similar to the English letter G. You sound like you're grunting.
  • خ Khaw. You must make your mouth round and hollow in order to speak this letter aloud. It's critical not to flatten it. This letter is also known as a round letter in tajweed.            


These are the letters that come from Makharij's center.

  • ع Ayn. It is challenging to pronounce, particularly for English speakers. More muscle tension is required to read this letter correctly. To properly pronounce it, you must properly close and open your throat.
  • ح Haw. You must roar as you read this letter. However, no vibrations like "gh" or "kh" should be heard. To read this letter, you need to move down to the center of your throat.

Group 3 – AFSAL HALQ

The letters that are located at the bottom are these.

  • هHa – The fact that both letters contain the letter H is questioned by some, but you should be aware that their origin completely alters their characteristics. This letter is also more introspective.
  • ءHamza : You need to read it like the silent "Alif" Take the letter A, which represents an apple. Hamza and Alif can be used interchangeably. However, a few teachers will consistently state that Hamza is the culprit. Alif's summit is home to the "2" shaped in the opposite direction. With a straight tongue, it is read with clarity and sharpness. To read it, you don't need to open your mouth.

Makhraj of Arabic Letters

Makharij speaks Arabic using the letters on his throat. We value being able to correctly pronounce Arabic characters. It is essential to comprehend the five primary makharij of the letters. The top five makharij are listed below.

1.     The nose (الخيشوم)

Many people are unaware that our nose plays a crucial role in how we pronounce letters. There are two Arabic letters that can be pronounced with the help of our noses. The letters  م  and ن. are among these. When the combination of these two letters hits the nose, we call it ghunna. Did you notice that the lips and nose are used together to make the sound? Try uttering "mmmm."

2.     The tongue (السان)

Our tongue contains a number of Arabic characters. In addition, there are 18 Arabic letters that emerge from our tongue. These letters are:  ق ك ش ج ي ض ل ن ر ط د ت ص ز س ظ ذ ث.The letters are further subdivided into various makharij. They will accordingly aid how you might interpret how each letter is articulated.

3.     The throat (الحلق)

The six letters that come out of the throat are the letters. In either Urdu or English, we rarely use our throats to pronounce any of the letters. As a result, many people struggle with throat pronouncing the letters. To correctly pronounce the word, you may need some time.

4.     The empty space (الجوف)

The empty space is the open portion of your mouth. Respond with an aaaaa when a doctor tells you to open your mouth. Have you ever wondered where this sound comes from? The open space in your mouth is where the sound is coming from. Out of the void, the characters "alif madd," "wow madd," and "ya madd" emerge. Now, try saying aaaa, eeee, and oooo, pausing to consider the source of the sound.

5.     The Lips (الشفتان)

Arabic has a total of four letters that are pronounced with our mouths after Arabic throat letters. These letters consist of ف,ب ,م ,و.
