Small alif symbol (khara zabar) and alif

Q: Is the small alif symbol and alif elongation both the same? What if you over extend an alif elongation, does it alter the meaning?


A: Yes.

It may not always alter the meaning, but it is against the laws of tajweed.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
