Is the kalima InnallahaStafa pronounced more as ..astafa or ..estafa!

There are three words in the phrase: .  The third word has a hamzah wasl written as the first letter, and this letter is pronounced only when starting with this word.  When continuing from the previous word, the hamzah wasl is dropped in pronunciation.  So when reading these three words together, we would go from the fathah on the of the Glorious name of Allah directly to the Saad saakinah of the next word: .  
If however for some reason, we start with the last word, we would then employ the hamzah al-wasl and in this case, we would start the word with a kasrah on the hamzah. 
In conclusion, when continuing reading we would read directly with a fathah on the to the Saad saakinah of   and would not pronounce the hamzah al-wasl at the beginning of the last word, but when starting on this word, we would start the hamzah wasl with a kasrah.
