7. Two hamzahs meeting in two words
If two hamzahs meet between two words, i.e. the first hamzah is the last letter of the first word and the second hamzah is the first letter of the second word, there are different ways of reading the words depending on the vowels of the two different hamzahs.
A. Two hamzahs with agreeing vowels
If the two hamzahs have the same exact vowel, as in: ,
then Warsh has two allowable ways of reading them:
1. Reading with of the second hamzah and reads the first hamzah clearly (with ).
2. Reading with of the second hamzah a medd letter and a complete medd ( ) of six vowel counts if the letter following is saakin, and two vowel counts ()if a voweled letter is after the second hamzah.
B. Two hamzahs with different vowels
If the two hamzahs have different vowels, then they are read as follows:
If the first hamzah has a and the second a kasrah or a dhammah, the second hamzah is read with . Examples are: .
If the first hamzah has a dhammah or a kasrah and the second hamzah has a , then the second hamzah is read with , meaning it changes into a the letter that goes with the vowel on the first hamzah. This means it changes into a with an accompanying in this first example: and it changes into a with an accompanying in the following example:
If the first hamzah has a dhammah and the second has a kasrah, then there are two allowed ways of reading, either with of the second or . An example of this is found in the following: . Both ways are allowed. If reading with in this case, the second hamzah changes into a with an accompanying kasrah.
