Letter (qaf) is one of the heaviest letters in the Arabic language in general. Its sound is really heavy, so usually, its sound is replaced with the (hamza – ء ) sound in the Egyptian dialect.

Here are a few examples in the video below:


Moon – قمر – amar

Soon / near – قريب – urayeb

Sit (verb) – قاعد – aaed

Captain – قبطان – obtan
