Ask an Alim

What’s the correct pronunciation of reciting asma e ilahi

Q:

Someone told me to recite Asma ilahi YA ALLAH UL HAKEEM UT TAWWAB..
I want to ask if its a correct pronunciation grammatically?
Because, my knowledge is if ya is before any ism then the last letter of ism will be recited with fatha. … Like YA ALLAH HAL HAKEEM UT TAWWAB.
kindly guide me in this matter.
JazakAllah

A:

Wa alaykum salaam
Thank you for your question.

In arabic grammar when یا comes before isme alame mufrad which is not مضاف, like before a name,country city, the last letter of the ism will hrave dhamma.
