First of all, it is necessary to write the تَنْوِين above the هَمْزة, but do you also need an additional Alif (ا) after it?

Let’s have a look at similar examples to understand the problem:

 with Alephmeaning, explanationrootexamp.
1yes a piece; a portion

If the word functions as a direct object (مَنْصُوب), it is written like this: جُزْءًا

For example: I want a piece.
2noin winter

The root literally means: to spend the winter. The ء belongs to the root. It was originally a و that was transformed to a ء

  in the eveningمسومَساءً

The rules for writing the final Aleph

  1. If there is an Alif before the هَمْزة, you don’t write an Alif after the هَمْزة if the word is in the مَنْصُوب–case.
  2. If there is no Alif before the هَمْزة, like in the word جُزْء, you write an Alif after it. Why? The هَمْزة is part of the root!
