Rules of Meem sakin میم ساکن

Rules of Meem sakin (میم ساکن)

The Meem saakin (میم ساکن) has three possible rules:

  1. IKHFA (Hiding) – اخفاء
  2. IDGHAM (Merging) – ادغام
  3. IZHAR (Clear) – اظهار

Definition of IKHFA: اخفاء

If a Meem is followed immediately by a Baa and this only occurs between two words, we then close our lips for the Meem with an accompanying ghunnah.

For example;

وما هم بمؤمنين، يعتصمْ بالله

Defination of IDGHAM: ادغام

The meeting of a saakinah letter with a voweled letter so that the two letters become one emphasized letter of the second type (of letter). The idgham of the Meem saakinah occurs only with one letter – another Meem.

For example;

اليكُمْ مُرسلون

Defination of IZHAR: اظهار

Pronouncing every letter from its articulation point without a ghunnah [in this case, without a prolonged ghunnah] on the clear letter.

Its letters: 26 letters, the rest of the Arabic letters after excluding the letters of ikhfa and idghaam of the meem saakinah.

For example

لَمْ يلِدْ ولم يُولَدْ

Meaning of GHUNNAH: غنة

Ghunnah it is a sound that is emitted from the nasal passage, without any function of the tongue.
