Hamzah-t Al-Wasl in Nouns (second part)
Hamzah Al-Wasl in Irregular Nouns
Last tidbit, we discussed that nouns that have hamzah al-wasl as the first letter are all started with a kasrah. The last lesson explained hamzah al-wasl in regular nouns; this lesson will describe the different irregular nouns that start with hamzah al-wasl. Again, these nouns also will have a kasrah on the hamzah al-wasl when beginning on these words.
