THE Harf YAA and VOWELS I and A
One fo the harfs that join from both sides is the harf “YAA“. There are two ways to write this harf, and it is pronounced like “Y“. When this harf is alone or is at the end of the word its shape reminds us to the letter “S“. When it is at the beginning or in the end of the word then it is similar to the harf “TA“. The only difference is that the two dots come under the harf “YAA“. (see the table in the animated lesson).
In this lesson we are going to learn another two long vocals, i.e. two long vowels: “I” and “A“. The long vowel “I” is made by adding the harf „JA“ to any of the harfs with “kasra” with no marks on it. Since we have already learned in the sixth lesson that the long vowel or vocal “A” is made by adding an „Aleph“ to a harf with „fatha“ with no marks on it and this is the way we get a long “A“. In this lesson we are going to learn an another way the long vowel „A“ is made, this time with the help of the harf “YAA“. This way the long vowel „A“ is made by adding the harf “YAA“ with no marks on it to the harf with fatha.
