Usually I listen to a reciter and try to mimic their tajweed but I had a question about Tajweed al madd, am I required to perform tajweed madd when reciting?
For those who are unsure what I mean when I say tajweed madd, which really is making the word long, here is an example from Surah Al-Kahf
For example in 18:54
وَلَقَدْ صَرَّفْنَا فِى هَٰذَا ٱلْقُرْءَانِ لِلنَّاسِ مِن كُلِّ مَثَلٍۢ ۚ وَكَانَ ٱلْإِنسَٰنُ أَكْثَرَ شَىْءٍۢ جَدَلً
are what I mean when I say tajweed madd
Other words where madd is used is in the same ayat is
So thats my question, I am trying to memorize the quran and wanna be sure I don't go about it the wrong way.
