(Fatwa: 1220/1118/N=9/1434)

According to the recitation method of Imam Hafs, all the letters of the Quran with zamma and kasra should be recited in maruf way, not majhul way; except the letter of ra in (مجريها). Reciting it in majhul way is not haram but it causes the loss of beauty in recitation of the Quran. Yes, if it was recited majhul in a way that caused changing in meaning then it will be unlawful.
