(73:6:7) إِنَّ نَاشِئَةَ اللَّيْلِ هِيَ أَشَدُّ وَطْئًا وَأَقْوَمُ قِيلًا.

Why اجوف واوى rule is not applied on أَقْوَمُ in the above. Would it not make

it اَقَامُ?

The اجوف واوى rule applies when we are dealing with a verb . The Form IV imperfect verb from the triliteral root qāf wāw mīm (ق و م) is indeed أَقَامَ and not أَقْوَمَ. Here it a noun of the pattern أَفْعَلُ. The ajwaf rule does not apply.
