Title: The letter Dhaad
You mentioned that the letter "Dhaad" is pronounced using the posterior 2/3 of the side of the tongue. My question is:
When pronouncing the letter "Dhaad" with kasra like "fil arDi" in Surah 59 ayaah 1 is the kasra sound in "arDi" pronounced from the sides of the tongue as well?

The articulation point is the same for the
with any vowel or a sukoon. With a kasrah the
articulation point is used and the same time with retract our jaw for the kasrah. The same procedure occurs with
with a fathah, only the mouth is opened, and the
with a dhammah, with a circling of the lips.
One can practice- if they pronounce the
correctly with a particular vowel- then practice saying the
with the vowel which is correct, for example with a fathah, then say it with a kasrah, then with a dhaamah being sure not to change the articulation point with each vowel.
