What Are the Rules of Stopping When Reading the Quran?Usama Ghumman
The words of Allah are beautiful, strong and powerful, incomparable to others, but God made them easy to read, interpret and remember. In order to be able to read and understand the beauty of the Qur’an completely, Allah has made it easy for us to read, understand and memorize it. Since long verses (verses) are easier to understand by dividing them into shorter verses, the verses of the Qur’an are divided into notes, rules, and some symbols to preserve and protect the meaning of the reader, and learn to read. Qur’an. correct spelling and rhythmic and phonetic style. This creates a single universal reading method among all readers, whether they know Arabic or not.
When reading the Qur’an, we should pause only when permitted (ie the reader takes a breath with the intention of continuing the reading). A small change in wording can completely change the meaning of a verse. Qur’an is a complex language, so it is important to learn from a good Qur’an teacher, especially if you don’t speak Arabic.
Waqf means standing. The consonant at the end of the word containing the stop is intended to continue rather than the continuation of the breath. Oh, it can be at the end or in the middle. However, it can never be in the middle of a word. It’s important to stay calm, relax, and keep your distance.

(-) End of verse:
This symbol is called Waqf-e-Tamam in Arabic. This indicates that the verse has ended and a new verse is about to begin. When reading the Qur’an, it is important to know where these symbols are. So you can take a breath and move on.
This sign means that the complete message is given in the verse, and now the reader must analyze the verse, understand the general message, and be ready to learn about the next verse. This sign is also known as “great stop”.
مـ – Compulsory StopThe Absolute Pause
This target is Waqf-e-lazim, which means something to be done at any cost. If we find this symbol, we must stop there, or it will be a sin to continue reading because it will change the meaning. There is no benefit from reading the Qur’an and the pleasure of Allah Ta’ala. This is an important rule of standing in the Qur’an and we must be very careful.
طج – Permissible Waqf
Wakaf-e-Mutlaq is a sign that makes the recitation of the Qur’an easy for readers. This allows the reader to take a deep breath and move on. It is better for you to stop here because that way you can recite the Qur’an in a more convenient way. Necessary pauses help better understand the Qur’an and reduce mistakes.
ز – You can continue reading
The symbol of Waqf e Mujawwaz shows that you should not stop here and just move forward without taking a breath. However, there are no restrictions if you want to stop and rest.
ص – You Have a Licence Here to Stop
This is a sign of Wakaf e Murakh-khas that you can rest and relax if you are tired. In such a situation, if you continue to read, you may not understand the meaning of the verse and may make mistakes. However, it is recommended to continue reading.
سکتہ – The Smaller Pause
This Saktah sign means that you should stop reading but don’t hold your breath. It is very difficult to understand, but you can do it when you study the Qur’an with your teacher.
وقفتہ – The Long Pause
This “Wakfa” sign is similar to a small pause (Saktah), but the difference is the pause time. If you see this symbol, you will need to take a break and move forward with your reading. Like Saktah, can’t hold his breath in Wakfada.
لا- Not necessary to stop here
Exactly the opposite of what is needed. That means you can’t stop there completely. If you stay here, you will change the meaning and you will be responsible. Although there are other stop signals, you have to get a handle on them first. In this way, students will be more confident in reading and understanding the meaning of the Qur’an.
صلي– Preference for Continuation
Al-wasl Awlaa continued reading the verse without stopping. It’s best if you keep reading, but if you want to stop, you can.
ق – Better not to Stop
Although there are conflicting opinions on whether one should stop reciting the verse or not, Keela points out that one should not stop reciting Alayhil-Waqf.
صل – The Permissible Pause
Kad Usualsal explains that it is okay to continue reading, but you can stop now.
∴ – The Embracing Stop
“Mu’anaqah” is a symbol that means staying in one of the three in it and not stopping at the same time.
وقف النبی – The Pause of Prophet PBUH
– The resting place of the Prophet, peace be upon him
Waqf-un-Nabi is the hallmark of Muhammad S.A.W. You better stop here and rest.
وقف غفران – The Sign of Supplication
The place where the reader and the listener should stop to pray to Allah Ta’ala is marked with the sign ‘Waqf e Ghufraan’.
وقف منزل – The Pause Sign of Jibrael A.S
The symbol of Waqaf e Manzil represents the place where Angel Gabriel stood when he revealed the verses of the Qur’an to the Prophet.
