oral cavity al jawf

Tajweed is the Science of reading Qur'aan correctly. To recite the Qur’aan with tajweed is in fact an implementation of Allah’s command. Allah (a'zza wa jall) says,

“And recite the Qur'ân (aloud) in a slow, (pleasant tone and) style.” (Qur’aan [73]:4)

Also, the Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu a'lyhi wa sallam) said:

"The best among you are those who learn the Qur'an and teach it to others." (Sahih Al Bukhari)


makhraj = points of vocal articulation. pronouncing of the sound....

sound stop at or produce...

makharij = plural more than one makhraj.....

makharij and sifat which is group or attributes of arabic sound.


There are 5 main categories of Makhaarij :
1. The oral cavity Al Jawf اﻟﺠَﻮف
2. The throat Al Halq اﻟﺤَﻠﻖ
3. The tongue Al Lissaan اﻟﻠِّﺴَﺎن
4. The lips Ash-shafatain اﻟﺸَّﻔَﺘﺎن
5. The nasal cavity Al Khayshoom اﻟﺨَﻴﺸُﻮم


This video presentation is about makhraj al-Jawf, the articulation point of the vocal and throat area which has three letters: Alif sakinah preceded by fath'a, waw sakinah preceded by dhammah and yaa sakinah preceded by kassrah.
Watch the second video presentation of makharij (al-Jawf i.e vocal and throat articulations area)
