’Assalāmu ‘alaikum wa rahmatul-Lāhi wa barakātuh,

Does the nabr affect the timing of the first letter of the shaddah, for example the first yaa’ in:

1 : 5: ’iyyāka, and 2 : 255: hayyu, (and similarly with the waaw and still other cases,)


is the timing the same as the normal timing for letters with the characteristic of ’arrakhāwah (or the appropriate characteristic group the letter is from) when sākin and the normal timing of yā’un sākinah but not leen nor madd?

Jazākal-Lāhu khairā.

Salāmun ‘alaikum wa rahmatul-Lāhi wa barakātuh.


Wa alaikum assalaam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,

The timing is the same as for other saakin letters with the same characteristics; (ie rakhawawah, in this case) the difference is that the voice is raised just before letter that has a nabr.

Wa iyyaakum.  Wa assalaam alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh.
