Harf Jarr

In the next 5 minutes, you will  understand more than 10,000 words in the Quran. 

Apart from the magnificent 8 there is another set of words in the Quran that you can see frequently in the Quran. They are known as harf Jarr, simply because they make the word that comes after it Jarr ie ends with a kasrah (ee sound).

They are similar to the English prepositions and you can open the Quran and see a bunch of them on almost every page. , Preposition appears more 13006 times in the Quran. So it is worth memorizing. Here are the most common preposition n the Quran.

There are more of course but these are the harf jar that commonly appears in the Quran. All you have to remember is whenever you see these words you will notice that the word that comes after ends with kasrah sign.What is interesting to note is that in Arabic a word can be made from just one letter, like بِ.

As Muslims we come across harf jar everyday in fact we been using it more than once in a single day. All Muslims know how to say Bismillah we say it in our salah and before we enjoy our meal. The phrase Bismi inbismillahirahman nir rahim comprises of two words which are bi and ismun.  However, the word bi in the beginning of the sentence is a harf jar. So it automatically makes the words after it ends with a kasrah therefore instead of  Ismun the word becomes ismee because of the harf jarr in front of it.

Lets, recap, whenever you see the 11 Arabic words in the Quran you ‘ll know that it is a harf jar and the rule is it will make the word after ends with a kasrah. That’s what you have to know for now.  There are exceptions of course, and we shall deal with the exceptions later.

As for now you should memorize those 11 words and know them by heart because it comes up in the Quran on every single page
