1-Note that the dhaal in the second word has a shadda over it.

2-When the laam of the definite article al- is followed by a dhaal, the laam is not pronounced. Instead, the dhaal becomes doubled. This is because dhaal belongs to a category of letters called the "sun letters". These will be explained in detail in the e-book part of this course.

3-Any "sun letter" following immediately after the definite article al-, follows the above rule. The laam is not pronounced, and instead, the "sun letter" doubles.
