Pronucation of Kalima Tayyiba: Is it Muhammad 'UR' Rasool Allah or Muhammad 'AR' Rasool Allah
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)

As salam Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah.
JazakAllah Khairan Ya Aakhee!

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Your Question: .....Is it Muhammad 'UR' Rasool Allah or Muhammad 'AR' Rasool Allah. IS it 'UR' or 'AR' or both?
The use of 'urr' or 'arr' is more of a matter of the grammar of the Arabic language and depends entirely on what term precedes the noun.
If one were to declare simply: 'Laa illaha illalaah, Mohamed urr Rasool Allah'.... here the term 'urr' would be the correct gramatical usage in the Arabic language.
But if were to declare: 'Ash hado ann Laa ilaaha illalaah, Mohamed arr Rasool Allah' ..... here the term 'arr' would be the correct gramatical usage.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is only ones. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
