    In Romanized Urdu is it correct to state that 3ain is written alongside the vowel it uses? Thus, we would have:

    3a eg t3abiir تعبیر
    3i eg 3irfaan عرفان
    3u eg 3unfuvaan عنفوان
    3aa eg 3aashiq عاشق
    3oo eg maf3ool مفعول

    and so on.

    All help much appreciated.

    Basically 3 is 3ain and any vowel before or after (a/i/u etc) is written accordingly. Your first word is incorrect..

    ta3biir

    I hope the issue of 3kkaas vs. 3akkaas is clear by now.
