Strong and weak letters

Sifaat is a huge topic in tajweed, I’ve been told. So far I’ve only been exposed to the basics and it’s worth getting to grips with as early as possible to seriously gain an understanding of the science of intonation.

In the mathhab of Imam Jazariy (RA), there are 10 sifaat of opposites and 7 with no opposites, as previous posts explained. These 17 sifaat are either strong or weak and so therefore are the letters. So I’ve made a very simple flowchart oulining these.

UPDATE: I’ve made a new style of flowchart, hopefully more pleasing to the eye
