Lesson 6 الدَّرْسُ السَّادِسُ

This is… - هَـٰذِهِ

  • In this part of the lesson we learn how to use the demonstrative pronoun هَـٰذِهِ which means "This” in the feminine gender. /Hādhihī/ is pronounced هَاذِهِ but is written without the first /Alif/. The word following /Hādhihī/ is the noun (object) being referred to and it should be a feminine word. e.g. بِنْتٌ (a girl).
  • When a noun (whether definite or indefinite) is preceded by the demonstrative pronoun هَـٰذِهِ - it takes the nominative case which is represented by a single /đammah/ in the case of a definite noun and by double đammas in the case of an indefinite noun.
