The stressed syllable here is 'qiym'. The accent is pashta which is
always positioned after the last letter of the word, but when the word
is stressed not on the last syllable the pashta is repeated on the
stressed syllable. So when you see two pashtas on one word, the first
one is always on the stressed syllable.
