I have a question regarding the pronouncing of 'r' mushaddad when stopping on it.

Assalamu Alaykum Respected Teachers,

I have a question regarding the pronouncing of 'r' mushaddad when stopping on it. From what I remember according to the website it should only be pronounced with a single 'r' simply due to the reason that when stopping, the second 'r' also becomes sakin and as result it is not possible to pronounce both r's at the same time. So if I am correct in saying that for a sakin letter to be pronounced the previous letter must be mutaharrik.... in that case may I ask how is it possible to pronounce madd arid lisSukoon ? For example 'Bismillahi Ar-Rahmani Ar-Raheem', when stopping on it.. the 'meem' becomes silent but the 'yaa' before it is also sakin... so why is it that we can pronounce the second sakin letter although the letter before it is also sakin ?

please clarify my misconception.... jazakumullahu Khaira,

When stopping on a word that has a shaddah on the last letter, we stop with an "accent" , in Arabic ,which means we raise our voices on the letter before the last letter.  This shows that there are two letters.  Without this "accent" it would be as if there were only one letter, and this would be a mistake.  Please see: http://www.abouttajweed.com/the-accent-in-recitation-of-the-glorious-qur-an/the-accent-in-recitation-of-the-glorious-quran-p-2.html

If a saakin letter of a different type proceeds the last letter of a word (not ending with a shaddah) and we are stopping on this word, both letters must be pronounced.  This requires skill to pronounce both letters with their proper characteristics, but it is required.  This is for non-medd letters.  It is very easy to pronounce a saakin letter after a medd letter, as noted in the question. 
A saakin letter is not silent, it has no vowel but is pronounced with all of its characteristics. 
It is not required that a letter being pronounced with a sukoon is preceded by a voweled letter.  In general in Arabic, this only occurs when stopping on a word with a temporary or incidental sukoon on the last letter and the letter predecing it has a sukoon.  An example of this would be when stopping on the word: .  You can listen to this word at the following link: http://abouttajweed.com/wal-asr_128.mp3

Insha' Allah this helps clarify things for you.
