Question
Assalamu alaikum! Please is a type of Madda (elongation) called Al-Maddul Alfaat? If there is please give an explanation on this Madda.
Jazakumullahu khairan for your efforts.
Answer
Alifaat, which is the plural of alif are by nature medd letters, meaning they have the lengthening of at least two vowel counts if not followed by a sukoon.  There are alifaat at the ends of words which need two vowel counts, or if followed by a hamzah at the beginning of the next word they are lengthened four or five counts.  Please see the chapter on lengthenings which has many pages, but starts at the following link:
