Chapter Summary

The Arabic term waqf 'pause ' is a grammatical concept. The term waqf is from the transitive verb waqafa. The tradition of oral reading, in general, is engrained in the hearts and minds of most Muslims and Arabs. The Arabic sources that dealt with this topic were focusing on the rules of waqf in Classical Arabic with special emphasis on the rules of recitation in the Qurʾān. The chapter emphasizes on the phenomenon of waqf with the explanation of the basic linguistic features of waqf of Modern Standard Arabic. Previous research on waqf, in western languages, is rather limited. The chapter discusses the four studies that made a basic contribution to waqf or pause. The emphasis of the chapter is on the rules of waqf in Classical Arabic Grammar and its application for the recitation of the Qurʾān.

Keywords: linguistic analysis; Modern Standard Arabic; transitive verb waqafa; waqf
