Thanks, Nick. That's what I thought it is. Though I liked the vowel harmony
of /mühämmädü-nü r-räsûlü/...
(I think you mean /muHammadu-nu r-rasuulu/ ;)
According to Wright's Grammar, Vol. I, p. 22, /muHammadu-ni
r-rasuulu/ is correct.
I found the pages in al-naHw al-waafiy: p. 43 of volume I. Two and a
half pages. According to him, either kasra or damma is allowed, but a
kasra is more common, except when the second following consontant has a
damma too, as in
أقدم عالمُن ُاخرج لاستقباله = أقدم عالم اخرج لاستقباله
i.e. aqbal @aalimunu _xruj li...etc
He says some claim you can also the tanween altogether if it is followed
by a Harf saakin.
Nothing about how to notate it, however.
