Short vowels

 

Short sowels are made with the Arabic signs Fatha, Khashar and Dhamma.

Tajweed free school  has a good lesson about short vowels

Long vowels

There are three long vowels:

  1. Long alif  – “alif madd”
    if  alif is preceded by a letter with fathah
  2. Long Yah – “Ya madd”
    if  yah is preceded by a letter with kashra
  3. Long Waw – “vaw madd”
    if  waw is preceded by a letter with dammah

The long vowel is read with the preceding letter as one syllable.

Tajweed free school  has a good lesson about long vowels too:
