Can we read Zawd (the 15 letter) as Daal (the 8th letter)?
must be articulated from the correct articulation point, which is not a
with tafkheem (heaviness) or a
. The correct articulation of the letter is from the sides of the tongue and what lies opposite to it of the molar area (near it), and not
from the tip of the tongue. It takes practice to perfect.
The three letters that some Muslims mistakenly pronounce instead of the
all come from the tip of the tongue, whereas the
does not use the tip of the tongue for articulation.
