Madd Muttasil – A Quick Overview

Madd Muttasil

Allah SWT sent down the Holy Quran as an ideal source of legislation for mankind to live a great life. Due to its extreme importance, we must read and recite the Quran in a correct and clear way to avoid all sorts of confusion or misconception.

For this, it is necessary for us to follow Tajweed rules for better recitation, which include the kinds of Madd. So, if you have any questions in your head, like what is Madd Muttasil in Arabic, continue reading this post! We’ll start by covering the different types of Madd in Tajweed before discussing Madd Muttasil in detail.

Types of Madd

There are a number of types of Madd in Arabic. For example:

  • Al Madd ut Tabee’ee or Normal Extension.
  • Al Madd ul Lazim or Mandatory.
  • Al Madd ul Mutassil or Connected.
  • Al Madd ul Munfasil or Disconnected.
  • Madd us Silah or Joining.
  • Al Madd ul Aarid Lissukoon or Contingent upon Sukoon.
  • Madd ul Badal.
  • Madd ul Iawd… etc.

The type of Madd we are going to cover in the coming section is Madd Muttasil.

What is Madd Muttasil in Arabic?

Mad Wajib Muttasil (مد المتصل) is a kind of Madd Al-Far’ee. It occurs when a Hamza appears after the letter of Madd (that is started with the right vowel) in the same word.

When this appears, the reciter is bound to elongate the Madd for 4/5 Harakat in Hafs (equivalent to the time it takes four or five fingers to open up from an enclosed fist one by one).

The meaning of the word Muttasil is connected, and thus, this can be seen as the Hamza is connected to the letter of Madd in a single word, not two different words just like Madd Munfasil.

Madd Munfasil (مد المنفصل) is also a kind of Madd Al-Far’ee, like Madd Muttasil. This is defined as an individual Madd since one of the letters of Madd and Hamza (the reason of Madd) comes in two successive words. This appears when the letter Madd occurs at the end of one word, and the Hamza appears at the start of the next word.

Considering this case, the reciter can elongate up to four alif amounts. Now, it is hoped that you understand the difference between Madd Munfasil and Muttasil. For a better explanation, it is good to take a look at some examples from the Quran. Some Madd Munfasil examples are as follows:

  • (Al-Kawthar: 1) إِنَّا أَعْطَيْنَاكَ) الْكَوْثَرَ)
  • (Al-Kafirun: 1) قُلْ (يَا أَيُّهَا) الْكَافِرُونَ
  • (Al-Baqarah: 54) … فَتُوبُوا إِلَىٰ) بَارِئِكُمْ) …
