Iqlab or Al-Iqlab (Arabic: الإقلابَ) means alternation/switching. It is one of the Tajweed rules in which Noon sakinah or Tanween is switched to Meem sakinah in its pronunciation.

Example[]

After every Noon Saakinah or Tanween, if the letter baa (ب) follows, the sound must be flipped [i.e. changed] to the sound of the letter meem (م). This is represented by a little meem on top of the letter itself as shown below:

Iqlaab

So the above, min b‘ad is sounds like mimm b‘ad when read.

Note: Do not confuse the full shaped meem (م) drawn above letters to indicate iqlaab, and the half meem (مـ) to indicated a Waqf-e-Lazim (compulsory stop).
