Izhar Letters In Arabic

One of the Tajweed principles is referred to as Izhar, which comes from the Arabic word for manifestation. Pronouncing a letter straight through, without pause, quiet, stress, or Ghunna, is referred to as "Izhar" in Tajweed.

What Are The Conditions Of Izhar?

You need to be aware of several Izhar conditions. They include Tanween (Nunation) and Noon Sakinah (static Noon), both of which have one of the Izhar letters following them, either in the next word or the previous one. As a result, the Noon or Tanween letter as well as the Izhar letter can be heard clearly in this setting.

What Are The Izhar Letters?

In Arabic, there are six Izhar letters that you need to know. Alif, Khaa', Ain, H, Ghin, and Haa' are the letters in this alphabet.

Some examples of Izhar's work are as follows:

  • In the word Anamat, the letter "n," which stands for "Noon," comes after the letter "a."As a result, the letters Noon and Ain are simple to say.
  • Alimn-Khaber, in which the letter "n" is a Tanween and the letter "Kh" starts the next word with the Khaa'.As a result, the letters Tanween and Khaa' are easily understood.
  • Tanhtoon is pronounced with the "n" sound, which stands for "Noon," and the "h" sound, which stands for "Haa'."
  • The Tanween letter "n" is followed by the letter "H" at the beginning of the subsequent word in this instance, Jorfn-Har.
  • ILahn-Ghirh is pronounced with a Tanween "n" and a Ghin letter ("Gh") after it, making it easy to pronounce.Tanween and Ghin can be clearly articulated as a result.
  • As can be seen, the word Klon-Aamn's first letter is an Alif, and the second letter, "n," is a Tanween. The Tanween and Alif can therefore be pronounced with ease.

What Are The Types Of Izhar?

There are only three distinct varieties of Izhar letters in the Quran. There is no similarity between any two Izhar types.

The following Izhar types are mentioned:

  • Oral Izhar occurs when any letter of the alphabet, other than Baa' and Meem, is pronounced. It is associated with Meem Sakinah. Because it follows Meem sakinah, this Meem is pronounced clearly without Ikhfa or Idgham.
  • Ultimate Izhar: The Izhar known as the "ultimate" Izhar is the Noon Sakinah, or "static Noon."In the same word, this Izhar is followed by an Idgham letter, either "Waw" or "Yaa."It is known as the ultimate Izhar because it cannot be spoken with the mouth or throat.Only Senwan, Qenwan, Bonyan, and Al-Donya are used to describe the Ultimate Izhar in the Quran.As you can see, the Noon Sakinah is at the beginning of each of these words, and either the Yaa' or the Waw letter is at the end.
  • Pharyngeal Izhar – The most prevalent Izhar is referred to as pharyngeal because all of the letters (Alif, H, Ain, Ghin, Haa', and Khaa') are spoken from the pharynx or throat. It occurs when one of the Izhar letters follows the Noon Sakinah or Tanween.

What Are The Ranks Of Izhar?

Izhar has three ranks all together. The letters H and Alif appear on the top one, while Ain and Haa' appear on the middle one. The lower one, on the other hand, has the letters Ghin and Kha'.

The distance between the Noon or Izhar letter's exit and Tanween's exit is the reason Izhar is used. Therefore, at this point, we are not required to employ ikhfaa or idgham. All that is required of us is to correctly and clearly pronounce each letter. It is absolutely necessary to clearly pronounce the Izhar letter, Noon sakinah, or tanween.

Therefore, based on our extensive knowledge, we have accurately defined it here. If you have any suggestions or inquiries about the Quran, you can contact the Web Quran Academy, read our article on Tajweed rules, and learn more about online Quran classes.
