Some tajweed related questions

Q: In the kitaab Tajweed for beginners, by Darul Uloom Azaadville, it is mentioned that to pull a Madd Asli for more than 1 Alif or less than 1 alif is haraam. Is this the Fiqhi Hukm?

If the Laam Of Allah in Tasmiyyah is pulled slightly more than 1 alif or the Ain in the first ayat of Surah Fatiha as is common nowadays, would the reciter be committing a major sin & be guily of committing a haraam act?

No doubt one should'nt read in this way but i dont think anyone would be doing this intentionally. nevertheless, does it mean it is haraam?

In the same kitaab, it is mentioned that Ghunnah Ikhfaa etc is mustahab & the omitting of it it Makrooh. Does this now mean that someone who is in the habit of always leaving it out, be committing a haraam act? (as is the case of other Makrooh acts?).


A: Pulling a madd-e-asli for longer than the duration of one alif is regarded as a lahn-e-khafi. Such a person deserves reproach. (Tafheem-ut-Tajweed)
