When the last letter of a word is not a medd letter and is saakin, and the first letter of the next word is a , , Warsh transfers the vowel of the hamzah to the saakin letter before it, and the hamzah is dropped in pronunciation. Examples of this are: , , and
Included in this is the or alif laam at-ta’reef, which is a different word than the noun it defines. Examples are: , , and . When starting a word that has a hamzah qaTa’ after the alif lam “ta’reef” when reading Warsh, there are two allowed ways of reading:
a. If it is considered as it is originally, then start with the hamzah wasl (with a ), then transfer the vowel of the hamzah qaTa’ that follows the to the . The word is pronounced

If a word starting with , then a , and then a , such as in: or there are conditions as to which way we start and how much we can lengthen the medd badl.

 There is no change with the Arabic rule for two saakin letters meeting in the recitation of Warsh, even though the laam of ta’reef acquires a vowel with the . If there is a word that has an incidental vowel before the laam of ta’reef with a , the incidental vowel does not change and stays, just as a dropped medd letter stays the same.
