Imaam al-Qurtubi, rahimahullah, in his tafsir mentioned a beneficial point regarding the pronunciation of certain nouns.
This benefit is regarding nouns that are constructed of three root letters.
If the first letter of these three letter words carries a Dhamma, then there are two permissible pronunciations:
1. Either the second letter can take a Dhamma
2. OR it can take a Sukoon.
Can be pronounced as:
U-sur (dhumma on the seen) عُسُر
‘Usr (Sukoon on the seen) عُسْر
Likewise with the words:
يُسُْر, هُزُْء, etc.
This rule also applies to plurals that are on the scale of فُعُل (fu-‘ul).
Kutub كُتُب can be pronounced as Kut-b (Sukoon on taa).
Rusul رُسُل can be pronounced as Rus-l (Sukoon on seen).
‘Uwun عُوُن can be pronounced as ‘Uun.
