Abstract | الملخص

This is an analytical, comparison, laboratory investigation which aims to provide the study of Arabic sounds with an accurate gauge for Arabic vowels – meaning the diacritical sounds along with the vowel letters – as they are enunciated in the Qur’an. Multiple methods were utilized; initially looking at the standards provided by the acoustic studies of vowels in general as they were observed in human languages by the two erudite scholars Farabi and Daniel Jones; followed by a reading of the Arabic language by examining the works of scholars of Arabic, Qur’anic recitation, and Qur’anic recitals; then utilizing an audio laboratory and the spectral analysis of the recitations of a number of master Qur’anic reciters; and concluding with an accurate, measurable, reliable gauge for Arabic vowels.
