# Shadee Elmasry – Lesson 12 Alif in the shape of a yaa…how and why

The difficulty of writing hesitant hesitant letters is highlighted, along with the importance of identifying characters in the process. The speakers discuss the use of dots in literature and avoiding mistakes in the writing process. They search for the matter of Matsuura and find a honor in a letter, but realize it is in a form of an icon. They also search for the matter of the matter of the matter of the matter of the matter of the matter of the matter of the matter of the matter of the matter of the matter of the matter of the matter of the matter of the matter of the matter of the matter of the matter of the matter of the matter of the matter of the matter of the matter of the matter of the matter of the matter of the matter of the matter of the matter of the matter of the matter of the matter of the matter of the matter of the matter of the matter of the matter of the matter of the matter of the matter of the matter of the matter of the matter
00:00:00 --> 00:00:04

For him, we now come to something that is one of the harder things

00:00:04 --> 00:00:08

for readers to get used to. And that is something called Elif

00:00:08 --> 00:00:13

Matsuda, which is the Elif that takes the form of a and I said

00:00:13 --> 00:00:16

earlier it takes this it be it is this amphibian

00:00:17 --> 00:00:22

amphibious letter, because it has to have two functions. And the

00:00:22 --> 00:00:27

function is that when a suffix is added to such a word, then it must

00:00:27 --> 00:00:28

be

00:00:29 --> 00:00:33

give it transforms from an LF into a year. You see here what I'm

00:00:33 --> 00:00:39

circling is the F, okay? But it becomes a yet. Alright, and this

00:00:39 --> 00:00:43

is the, it becomes a if a suffix is added. Alright, so this is

00:00:43 --> 00:00:48

what, that's the reason why that is the reason why the shape of the

00:00:48 --> 00:00:52

letter is a Yep, with a little Elif, on top of this is called the

00:00:52 --> 00:00:57

dagger edit. Okay, so again, it's amphibious, or it takes I mean,

00:00:57 --> 00:01:00

amphibious, I'm just using that word here. That means obviously

00:01:00 --> 00:01:05

means land and water. But what I'm, what I mean here, it takes us

00:01:05 --> 00:01:10

dual form, because it has to function as both letters. Okay? So

00:01:10 --> 00:01:15

when you add a suffix, it has to become a yet, but otherwise, it's

00:01:15 --> 00:01:18

an edit. So whenever you see this, you have to pronounce. You

00:01:18 --> 00:01:22

pronounce it as if it's an LF. And whenever you see this in the

00:01:22 --> 00:01:30

Quran, you pronounce it as a Yeah. Okay, II. Now, I have to I try to

00:01:30 --> 00:01:32

make things easy, but in this case, you're gonna have to

00:01:32 --> 00:01:36

actually use you know, exert some memory here and realize that there

00:01:36 --> 00:01:41

is a little bit of a problem. Okay. And that problem exists

00:01:41 --> 00:01:46

because everywhere else, they've taken on a different system.

00:01:46 --> 00:01:51

They've taken on a system where the Elif Okay, when you pick up a

00:01:51 --> 00:01:56

book of Hadith or literature, the Elif is given this shape

00:01:57 --> 00:02:02

and the yen is given two dots. So if you don't see two dots, you

00:02:02 --> 00:02:05

pronounce it as an edit everywhere else and every other literature,

00:02:06 --> 00:02:11

okay, only in the Quran. And in the old Egyptian publications is

00:02:11 --> 00:02:16

the simply this without any dots. And this is the LF at the end of

00:02:16 --> 00:02:19

the word. Elif MK surah and if in the form of elephant yeah combined

00:02:20 --> 00:02:23

everywhere else which is most of the publication of Islamic works

00:02:23 --> 00:02:27

comes out of Lebanon now Beirut.

00:02:29 --> 00:02:32

It's this is a yet and this is that if and I have been advocating

00:02:33 --> 00:02:38

for years, okay, that why don't we just for the publishing houses,

00:02:39 --> 00:02:43

use this, both this one and this one, this one that I'm pointing to

00:02:43 --> 00:02:47

with my mouse, the for the Edit, and this one and eliminate these

00:02:47 --> 00:02:50

two, because they're not from the Quran I'm talking about from

00:02:50 --> 00:02:54

regular books, eliminate these two because there are no distinctive

00:02:54 --> 00:02:56

markers. So just eliminate this one.

00:02:58 --> 00:03:00

When you publish, and when you publish, you want to write

00:03:00 --> 00:03:03

something that ends with an Elif that needs to take the shape of a

00:03:03 --> 00:03:07

yet use this one and when you want to publish a yet use this, okay?

00:03:08 --> 00:03:11

So there are when you want to use the use this one, so but the point

00:03:11 --> 00:03:15

is you as readers of the Quran must only worry about these two,

00:03:15 --> 00:03:17

okay, which is the Elif

00:03:19 --> 00:03:23

guy with the dagger edit on top of the yet versus no dagger at when

00:03:23 --> 00:03:28

00:03:28 --> 00:03:33

texts that are not the Quran, then you're going to have to recognize

00:03:33 --> 00:03:36

this guy that the LF and the R

00:03:39 --> 00:03:43

written in different ways. Okay, so this is one of the tricky

00:03:43 --> 00:03:47

things that people need to recognize and know that when

00:03:47 --> 00:03:49

they're reading that there's they're spelled and they're

00:03:49 --> 00:03:52

written in different ways. All right, now let's go to our

00:03:52 --> 00:03:56

reading. We now are on Surah Al bayyinah, which is the first Surah

00:03:56 --> 00:04:00

that will take us into two different pages. So this will be

00:04:00 --> 00:04:03

the first time we'll be scrolling down to another page. And we are

00:04:03 --> 00:04:09

now looking for the LF Matsuura okay the LF in the form of a yet

00:04:09 --> 00:04:16

alright let me icon Alladhina Cafaro Kapha Well, let's let's

00:04:16 --> 00:04:19

leave aside the meaning for now and just look at the letters. This

00:04:19 --> 00:04:23

this L of here is not covered while this is covered ru this is

00:04:23 --> 00:04:27

just a placeholder to show that it's plural. Min. L

00:04:28 --> 00:04:35

L if Hamza hurt lamb l kita. Here's a dagger lf l kita. Well,

00:04:35 --> 00:04:40

Mushrikeen Well, lf lamb mean sheen. That's the third stripe of

00:04:40 --> 00:04:46

the sheen. There tooth rock calf yet known and machete kin more of

00:04:46 --> 00:04:52

a kin meme known fat calf yet noon. And you notice here that I

00:04:52 --> 00:04:54

did effect move Akina

00:04:56 --> 00:05:00

and here was our first Elif Matsuura had the you pronounce

00:05:00 --> 00:05:05

You do not pronounce this idea yet you pronounce this Elif had had an

00:05:05 --> 00:05:07

00:05:10 --> 00:05:13

all right now let's skip ahead. Instead of going word for word and

00:05:13 --> 00:05:17

looking but let me show you two examples. And they come at the

00:05:17 --> 00:05:23

bottom here. FIA evident raw the you see here there's a yet and

00:05:23 --> 00:05:28

there is no dagger lf that means I pronounced you right around the

00:05:29 --> 00:05:33

aisle the Allahu Anhu what are the one that he can even kushy yet?

00:05:33 --> 00:05:38

Here again, no two dagger additives, no dagger and if, okay,

00:05:38 --> 00:05:40

so it's pronounced as Yeah, because she yet

00:05:41 --> 00:05:45

let me now take you to sort of Baja which has a number of Elif

00:05:45 --> 00:05:50

Matsuura examples. This is the best example to show you the Elif

00:05:50 --> 00:05:54

MK surah and it is Surah to Baja. So we had to skip a little bit.

00:05:55 --> 00:06:00

Okay to take us to sort of Baja and here you have what Baja you

00:06:00 --> 00:06:01

see that?

00:06:03 --> 00:06:07

That is the hat connected to the the is tucked under the hat and

00:06:07 --> 00:06:11

there's the lf there's the Dagoretti well Baja well lately

00:06:11 --> 00:06:12

either sagia

00:06:13 --> 00:06:17

again Dagoretti if and the and that yeah, shape is tucked under

00:06:17 --> 00:06:24

the Jeem met with DACA bukhoma Kala, again dagger Elif color Elif

00:06:24 --> 00:06:29

Matsuura cough lamb and the is tucked under the lamp with an

00:06:29 --> 00:06:32

earth euro to Chiron like Amina Gula.

00:06:34 --> 00:06:37

Again, yeah, it's tucked under the lamp and it's pronounced as the

00:06:38 --> 00:06:42

Elif. Well, Sophie are the kind of book for Tarot ball.

00:06:43 --> 00:06:48

It's again Elif, and the only reason that it's given a med. B is

00:06:48 --> 00:06:50

because it's followed by Hamza, and we'll discuss that later into

00:06:50 --> 00:06:53

00:06:53 --> 00:06:55

here. This is what you need to concern yourself this Elif Matsuda

00:06:55 --> 00:06:57

this. So, they will will show you what the meaning of that is later,

00:06:58 --> 00:07:03

but that is a year tucked under the BOD and this is acting as the

00:07:03 --> 00:07:05

beginning of the end the truth of the dot.

00:07:06 --> 00:07:07

00:07:09 --> 00:07:14

Again here a good example of Elif Matsuura. Well why does that cabal

00:07:14 --> 00:07:18

for hada again Elif Matsuura which is

00:07:21 --> 00:07:24

another I live macules time the yet shape is tucked under the

00:07:24 --> 00:07:27

noon. So this is acting as the beginning of the end the tip of

00:07:27 --> 00:07:28

the noon

00:07:29 --> 00:07:34

familia team of Allah Takahara Illa phillotson Harwell Nabina

00:07:34 --> 00:07:39

Muhammad big have had it. So those are some good examples of the Elif

00:07:39 --> 00:07:43

Matsuura, which is when you see the dagger lf you pronounce it as

00:07:43 --> 00:07:47

an LF, not as a yet, but you know that the reason it's done like

00:07:47 --> 00:07:53

this is that if a suffix or a pro of a pronoun of possession or any

00:07:53 --> 00:08:00

type of suffix is added, then that will have to transform into a yet

00:08:00 --> 00:08:03

that's why it's taking the dual shape of f and yet
