The Three Daʾādiʾ and the Three Muḥāq

The Three Daʾādiʾ and the Three Muḥāq


(Qabl al-Ẓuhr)

Tilāwah: Sūrah al-Zumar 53 – 73; Sūrah al-Fātiḥah; Sūrah al-Ikhlāṣ

Riwāyah: Hishām ʿan Ibn ʿĀmir; al-Qirāʾāt al-ʿAshr

(Baʿd al-Ẓuhr)

Tilāwah: Sūrah ʾĀl ʿImrān 185 – 194; Sūrah al-Balad; Sūrah al-Shams

Riwāyah: Warsh ʿan Nāfiʿ; al-Dūrī ʿan al-Kisāʾī; Ḥafṣ ʿan ʿĀṣim

The mourning of ʿĀshūraʾ began with a recitation that reminded the audience of the ʿĀshūraʾ in Indore (1440 AH) where the reciter had recited the same surah in the same riwāyah. To read more about that recitation, click here.

The tilāwah of al-Zumar was followed by that of al-Fātiḥah and al-Ikhlāṣ. Invoking all wujūhāt, the reciter delivered both sūrahs in qirāʾāt ʿashr.

The afternoon of ʿĀshūraʾ was the darkest of all – it saw the martyrdom of the three full moons – Imām Ḥusayn (AS) and his two sons, Maulana Aliakbar (AS) and Maulana Aliasghar (AS), for which this final article is entitled – The Three Muḥāq.

The reciter recited the verse of death (ʾĀl ʿImrān 185) in a style that brought forth tears to the eyes and prepared the heart to shed a sea of tears in the maqtal of Imām Ḥusayn (AS). This recitation was presented in Warsh. It was followed by a unique recitation of Sūrah al-Balad in the narration of al-Dūrī ʿan al-Kisāʾī with the reciter opting to recite in this narration for the first time in this Ashara Mubaraka.

This recitation was characterized by the imālah on the hāʾ al-taʾnīth which is the half tāʾ that is used as a suffix to femininize a noun. This imālah causes the fatḥah (zabar) on the letter preceding the hāʾ al-taʾnīth to be recited in a way that makes it sound closer to a kasrah (zayr). An example from al-Balad is the word متربة. This word is pronounced matrabaeh instead of matrabah. Listen to the audio here.

This article is concluded with five more entries in the table containing the furūsh unique to Ḥafṣ.

May Allah Taʿālā grant a long and healthy life to al-Dai al-Ajal Syedna Aali Qadr Mufaddal Saifuddin (TUS) till the day of judgement. Ameen.

    The post maqtal tilawa sharifa was a heart touching one, it was an unforgettable moment esp. while waiting for Quran e Natiq husen na dai to preside over the haseer ul huzn e wal buka.

    Mawla Mawla Mufaddal Mawla!

    Thank you janab for being so affectionately partilicular in your tajweed (excellence) of explaining 🙂

    Highly informative source. Very difficult to understand the depth of Tilawat Shz. Saheb renders but made easy by these texts. Thanks. Jazakallaho khairan.
