Dear brothers and sisters,
In last word of Suratul Kafirun, ayah/verse 4, 'ayn with fatah/jabar,ba with fatah/jabar, dal with saakunah/sakin,ta with shuddah/tashdid and fatah/jabarfollowed by mim with saakunah/sakin. How should this word be sounded- Abadhtum with dal followed by ta or Abattum ba catching ta. Your help in this regard will be appreciated-
saakinah meeting a
. These letters share the same articulation point, but have different characteristics- meaning they have
relationship. When a
saakinah meets a
, we merge the
completely into the
acquires a shaddah because it is now two letters merged into one. We therefore do not pronounce the
at all because it has merged into the the
(there is idhgaam of the
), and the
is read with a shaddah-as written. We pronounce the
with a fathah, then go directly to the
with the shaddah and fathah.
You are most welcome.
