    Hi Mourad,
    On some of these days of the week – the final vowel is a damma (eg.tuesday) whilst on others it is a kasra (eg. monday). Are these vowels actual case-endings (therefore changing depending upon their usage) or do they remain the same whenever/wherever we write them?

  2. If the days are indefinite and alone – they will carry a damma at the end
    If the are proceeded by the word (day of = Yawm al- ) – they will carry a kasra at the end.
    I will need to correct the card of Mon.

    thanks – that makes it much clearer.
