Mushaddad [ نّ] and [ مّ ]

Remember: A Mushaddad [doubled] letter is pronounced like two letters, the first of which is Sakin [vowelless] and the second is Mutaharrik [vowelized]. For example, the sound of [k] in the English phrase "truck key".

A Mushaddad [ مّ ] or [ نّ ] in the middle of a word should be pronounced with a Ghunnah [nasal twang].

The duration of a Ghunnah is two counts [Harakah].

Listen carefully to the Ghunnah accompanying the pronunciation of Mushaddad [ مّ ] and [ نّ ] in the middle of words.
