the sukoon in Arabic

Sukoon | Arabic Free course | lesson 5

sukoon symbolWelcome to our 5th lesson in the Arabic free course. Previously, we explored Arabic alphabet letters, short vowel marks, tanween, and long vowel marks. In this new lesson, we delve into the concept of sukoon (the absence of a vowel) in Arabic.

 

Beforehand, we learned how to vocalize with short vowel marks (a or i), forming sounds with consonants and vowels:

 

  • The Arabic letter “ba” (ب) with a fatha mark produces the sound “BA” (ب).
  • The Arabic letter “ba” (ب) with a kasra mark yields the sound “BEE” (بِ).
  • The Arabic letter “ba” (ب) with a damma mark creates the sound “BOO” (بُ).

Definition of the Sukoon in arabic

Now, let’s explore how to produce the sound “BAB.” To create this sound, we begin with the Arabic letter:

 

بَ

 

then followed by the letter

 

ب

 

on which we place the Sukoon symbol

 

ْ

As a result, “BAB” is written as:

 

بَبْ

 

Please take note of the following:

 

  • Arabic words are written from right to left.
  • Arabic letters undergo shape changes when connected with other letters as they form ligatures.
  •  

أَنْفٌ 

بَيْتٌ   

مَسْجِدٌ

Alhamdulillah I‘m very pleased with the arabic and Qur’an lessons I receive from teacher Umm Tasneem and I‘m also content with the al-dirassa administration team who were very quick in answering any questions I had. In a month I progressed a lot and I cannot wait to continue my studies with al-dirassa. May Allah reward everyone at al-dirassa.

My Qur’an teacher is fantastic, she teaches me in a loving and kind way where I look forward to the lessons and learn so much. My Arabic teacher is equally as nice and has a lot of patience with me, she has great expertise in the field and I’ve progressed really quickly with her. Thank you Al-dirassa!
