Learning Arabic -- The Second Short Vowel


In this lesson, we proceed with the next harakat. Each letter of the alphabet is given a fathha. Click on the letter hear to a demonstration of what it sounds like with the given vowel.


Recall that this vowel is placed atop the letter and is called a fathha. The letter which holds the fathha is known as maftooh. This vowel is the English equivalent of the letter 'A'. For example, the letter 'baa' with its fathha sounds like 'ba'.


After the maftooh alphabet is a series of words designed to be a practice for the dhamma as well as the fathha vowels.
