    I have a question though. I have always seen the diacritics (I do not know their name) ً right after the letter A as in شكراً.
    Doesn't that create the "an" sound (اً) or am I wrong?:confused:

    شكراً is the most common spelling, but some people consider it a common error and therefore spell it شكرًا. We once had a discussion about this and didn't really reach an agreement. I personally used to spell it شكراً until I heard it was a common error, at which point I switched to شكرًا. At this point, I'm not 100% what's prescriptively considered correct, but I've gotten used to spelling it شكرًا. (This all applies to other words with the same suffix, of course.)
