|Shamsiah [ل] |
The letter [ ل ] in the definite article [ ال ] is designated as Shamsiah when followed by one of the following letters: [ ت - ث - د - ذ - ر - ز - س - ش - ص - ض - ط - ظ - ل - م - ن ]
The [ ل ] should not be pronounced, but instead the following letter should be pronounced Mushaddad (doubled).
This rule applies regardless of the Harakah [vowel mark] these letters have.
When letters other than the previous group come after [ ال ], they will not be Mushaddad and the letter [ ل ] in the article [ ال ] will be pronounced clearly.
Listen to the examples demonstrating how the letters after [ ال ] are uttered.
