What do the scholars and muftīs of the mighty Sharī’ah say regarding this matter: In the supplication (du’ā) [recited between every four units] of tarāwīh, is the word والْعَظَمَةِ correct, or is وَالْعَظْمَةِ correct i.e. is the letter ظ sākin (silent) or mutaharrik (vowelised)?

Questioner: Junaid from UK


بسم اللہ الرحمن الرحیم
الجواب بعون الملک الوھاب اللھم ھدایۃ الحق والصواب

The correct pronunciation is وَالْعَظَمَةِ i.e. the ظ is vowelised with a fathah and it is not sākin. If read with a sukūn: “وَالْعَظْمَةِ”, its meaning is “a bone”. This meaning is not befitting in the Divine Court of Allāh, therefore, all Muslims should pronounce this correctly.
