Writing Two Letters as One.

 

     
      
What are Shaddas?

The shadda (ّ) means
the letter is repeated twice.

Example:
 
غَزِّ = غ  زْ ز

The first letter زْ
1. Holds a sequoun
(ْ).
2. Joins the prior syllable.

The second letter holds a short vowel and joins the upcoming syllable.

 

 Example



عَرَبِيَّةْ
1
3arabiy-ya

 car
 

Because يَّ carries a shadda ّ the letter is doubled:
يْ The first yih has a sequoun.
يَ The second yih carries a short vowel. Here a fatha.


Listen then say out loud
