Barakallah Feekum

Assalamu Alaikum

Jazakumullah Khair for posting an important issue such as this. Indeed a Muslim's tongue should always be moist with the remembrance of Allah.

Ma Lesh ya Ukhti. Pasensya na. I think the transliteration for Rahimahullah should have the letter "i" instead of double "e" because double e's represent prolongation of a vowel (letter 'Ya' in arabic). The arabic of 'rahimahullah' has only 'kasrah' on 'Ha' instead of 'ya' following 'ha'.

Subhanallah, I wish I can write in Arabic so that I can illustrate this further. But I think this should be clear to you.

Ma'as Salaama
