1-On the 'alif of al-yawma, the hamza is not written. This is the common rule when writing the definite article al.
2-The pronunciation of the 'alif of al-matHaf, merges with the fatHa of the preceding word ziyaara. Although the 'alif is written, we don't hear it pronounced.
3-The kasra of al-matHaf is not pronounced, because it comes last in the sentence.
