Arabic Reading Course

Arabic Short Vowel-Marks Overview

Short Vowel Marks - fatħah

  • In Arabic, there are 3 short vowel-marks. We shall learn the long vowel-marks in a later lesson In-Shā’-Allâh (God willing). The short vowel-marks enable the letter to make a sound in a similar way to the English language. In the same way a word cannot be made in the English language without one of the 5 vowels (a, e, i, o or u), in Arabic one cannot make a word without a vowel being used.
  • In the following 3 parts, we will learn the Short vowel-marks pronunciation In-Shā’-Allâh (God willing). This lesson will also help us to revise the letters we have already learnt in the previous lessons.
  • The /Fatħah/ is the short diagonal stroke above the letter. Please click on the letters to hear how they will sound with the /Fatħah/.
