THREE TANWEEN (NUNATION) TYPES

Three Tanween (Nunation) Types. Tanween means Nunation, it is the doubling of the vowel to make a ‘Noon’ sound. If an Arabic word has a tanween at the end it means that it is indefinite and that the word is a noun. Tanween cannot appear in the same word as the word ‘Al’. Al means ‘the’ and comes at the beginning of a noun.
