THE LONG VOWEL MARKS- WAAW AL-MADD

  • /Waaw al-Madd/ is the long vowel lengthening the sound of the /Đammah/ from 'u' into 'oo'. We have not covered the joining of letters yet, so just read the letter lengthening the sound, and we shall cover the way the letters change shape when joining in a later lesson In-Shā’-Allâh (God wiling).
