Writing of Letter 'alif (continued)

Consonant 'alif

Choosing Between the Forms at the End of the Word

Choosing between the different forms of hamza(t) at the end of the word is simpler than at the middle of the word. When we chose the correct form for hamza(t) at the middle of the word we looked at the vowel preceding and the vowel succeeding the hamza(t), compared their relative strength, then chose the form that suits the stronger vowel. Here, we will practically do the same, but instead of comparing between the two vowels around the hamza(t), we will only occupy ourselves with the vowel preceding the hamza(t) but not the one following it.

Depending on which vowel precedes the hamza(t), we will choose one of the following forms:

Suitable Form

Vowel

ـئ

Short I

ـؤ

Short U

ـأ

Short A

ء

Stillness

 

Examples:

قَاْرِئٌ
