ExplanationBy now you should be getting a grasp on writing and reading Arabic. The letters presented here are not saddled with special characteristics, differing them from letters in earlier lessons. One little thing perhaps: Note that even if nûn is resembling letters like bâ’, tâ’ and thâ’, it is still making up a group of its own: It is drawn with a round loop, when standing alone or as the last letter in a word.
Have you remembered to start practicing on your own? However evident, let us underline: There is no better way of learning to read Arabic than through writing Arabic text on your own.
|Examples and Grammar
danna– being miserly.
nasr– victory. Hey, this is the same as former president of Egypt’s name: Nasser. I guess that it is a good name for a ruler of a country.
‘islâm– Islam. One thing here: Note the connection between lâm and ‘alif. These two letters have a couple of interesting forms of joining together,- not to difficult to grasp, but more on that later.
