Lesson 16: The Connecting Hamza (Hamzat Al-Wasul)
The Connecting Hamza is silent during continuous recitation because it connects the last pronounced letter in the previous word to the succeeding pronounced letter in the following word. Yet if this Hamza happens to be the first letter in the word, then it will be pronounced with a character (Haraka) to initiate the first move.
