Will there be madd if there is a shaddah (tashdid) over yaa, and the yaa is preceded by a kasra? Such an occurence is there in the last words of Ayat Al Kursi.

Similarly, will there be madd if there is a shaddah over waw, and the waw is preceded by a damma?

  • What do "madd", "shaddah", "tashdid", "yaa", "kasra", "waw", and "damma" mean? – Rebecca J. Stones Apr 24 '18 at 6:20
  • @justinnoor.io yes I am referring to و هـو العلِيُّ العظيم – Shuaib Apr 25 '18 at 1:38

    @Rebecca J madd = connective lengthening of words during Quranic recitation, shaddah = an Arabic symbol that indicates the doubling of a consonant (i.e. book-case), yaa = an Arabic lettter equivalent to the English y, kasra = a diacritical mark that indicates a vowel sound, waw = an Arabic Letter equivalent to an English w, damma = a diacritical mark that indicates a vowel sound – justinnoor.io Apr 25 '18 at 4:04
  • These look to me as two distinct questions. A madd in the given examples seems impossible to me. – Medi1Saif Apr 26 '18 at 5:36
