brothers ans sistres.
My inquiry is obviously about hamzatul wasl.
This is what i read in a book, which is called "Easy quran reading with baghdadi primer", by Moustafa El-gindy. (It is referring to Hamzat ul-wasl when it comes at the beginning of a word): Hamzat ul-Wasl "requires a kasrah if it comes at the start of a verb whose third letter does not have an original dhammah". Then it has some examples: One of them is:اقضوا (the alif at the end of the word has a sukoon on it, as in the alif which comes at the end of third person plurals-my comp dosn't have the symbol).
My questions are:
- Why, when the rule states that Hamzat ul-Wasl requires a kasrah if the third letter is not an original dhammah, is there a dhammah on the third letter of the above example. i am thinking that because the dhammah on the third letter is followed by a madd letter (vowel), and we all know that the madd of waaw is preceeded by a dhammah and therefore it is necessary as the word wouldn't make sence. am i right in thinking this??
- Does this rule only apply to verbs?
- Does "whose third letter does not have an original dhammah" mean that a fathah or kasrah appear on the third letter?
anyways, i really need this.
