Q: These are the tajweed rules I know. Please tell me if they are correct and if there are any more.

Ghunna - Nasal sound

Idghaam Meem Saakin - Nasal sound

Idghaam - Nasal sound

Qalb - Nasal sound

Qalqala - jerk or bounce when stopping at certain letters

Ikhfa Meem Saakin - light nasal sound

Ikhfa - light nasal sound

Does the 2 Ikhfas have to be light or can it be like the others (Heavy Ghunna)?



Idghaam does not always have to be a nasal sound.

Jerk may not convey the exact meaning of qalqalah. You may say that is a rebounding sound.

The other explanations seem to be correct.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
