Exploring Long Vowel Marks in Our Free Arabic Course - Lesson 4

In our fourth free Arabic alphabet lesson, we’ll delve into the utilization of long vowel marks in Arabic words. Building on our previous understanding of short vowels and tanween in Arabic, this lesson introduces a new dimension to our language journey.

Long vowel marks signify the following phonetic sounds

  • ALIF AL-MADD: Signifying the prolonged “A” sound.
  • WAW AL-MADD: Representing the elongated “OO” sound.
  • YA AL-MADD: Denoting the extended “EE” sound.

 

These long vowel marks indeed share similarities with short vowel sounds, but they are distinguished by their extended pronunciation. They are formed from three Arabic letters: Alif, Waw, and Ya.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Long vowels share the same writing properties, including their position at the beginning, middle, or end of a word, and their ability to attach to other letters, just like the following letters:

 

ي و أ

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.
