The Dhammah is the second strongest Short Vowel. It’s like a comma or the letter Wow, written above the letter.

Any letter that you form an O shape with your mouth is considered Madhmoom (hugged).

The sound of U that you make in words like “Muslim, Put, and Vulgar”, the O in “Lot, Odd, and Love”, the double O in “Foot, Good, and Wood“, and even the A when it makes an O shape when you pronounce it in words like “Wash, Water, and Wall”.
