Knowing the Makhraj and Sifaat is very important for the recitation of the Holy Quran.

  1. Clear mistakes: the mistakes that generate an obvious change and so the meaning of word changes. They are related to mispronunciation of the Quranic words. These are punishable as they change the meaning of Allah’s word.
