  3. Standing Damma in Saudi Script it’s called Al-Yaa-us-Sagheerah

In this chapter, I need your attention. There are two different ways to use and write this symbol. The first one is used in Indo-Pak script and the second one is used in Arab countries.

In Indo Pak script these three symbols are represented as a standing Fatha – Standing Kasrah – Standing Dammah. It’s easy for English speakers to pronounce, especially beginners. Because it is very simple to say instead of saying in Arabic Al-Alif-Al-Sagheerah. Standing Fatha is like small Alif on the top of the letter, standing Kasrah is also like small Alif on the bottom of the letter, Standing Dammah is a bit rounded from the top / upside down Dammah / reverse Dammah.

In Saudi Script these three symbols are represented as a (1Al-Alif-us-Sagheerah  – small Alif with Fatha (2) Al-Yaa-us-Sagheerah – small Yaa after Kasrah (3) Al-Wao-us-Sagheerah – small wao after Dammah.

These three prolong symbls need to be read longer. Standing Fatha is equal to Alif Maddah. Standing Kasrah is equal to Yaa Maddah. Standing Dammah is equal to Wao Maddah.
