    In the small column on the right-hand side, we will show how to write the letters as they appear in the alphabet on their own.

    Everything to the left of the black line will be showing how the letters connect to each other in a word.
    Arabic is written from right to left, and letters have either two or three forms.

  3. 3
    The alphabet begins with the letter "alif", which is written as a line straight from the top to the bottom.

  4. 4
    "Alif" will connect to any letters on its right side, but it will not connect to any letter on its left.
    For this reason, we have a beginning "alif", which does not connect to any letters. We would need to pick up our pen, leave a space, and continue with any other letters.

  5. 5
    We can also have an ending "alif", which will have some letters, and then a straight line over and up.
    This is the ending "alif" at the end of the word.

Jiim Haa Khaa

Hello, and thank you for watching VisiHow. Today we have a series of tutorials on reading and writing the Arabic language. If you are a non-native speaker, and you've always wondered how to read and write in Arabic, we are going through the alphabet letter by letter from beginning to end. This is so that we can see how the letters are pronounce and how they are written by themselves. Also, to the left of the black line, we will show how they connect to other letters when they are forming words. Arabic is written from the right side to the left side. This is Part 2, and we are discussing the next three letters of the alphabet, which are "jiim", "haa" and "khaa".

Read and write consonants in the Arabic alphabet Part-2-8.mp4-canvas213 131317.jpg

Steps

  1. 1
    These three letters have the same basic shape.
    We will start by placing our pen down, going up and curving around slightly.

  2. 2
    Then, we will go down to make a half circle.

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  3. 3
    We'll make the same shape for the other two letters, "haa" and "khaa", as well.

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  4. 4
    We can tell these letters apart by the placement of dots.
    "Jiim" has a single dot that is placed just inside the half circle, below the top.

    "Haa" does not have any dot.

  6. 6
    "Khaa" is written with a single dot just above the letter.

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  7. 7
    These letters look similar as they stand alone.
    They also connect to other letters in the same way. These letters do connect from both sides, so each one has a beginning form, a middle form, and an end form.

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  8. 8
    For beginning "jiim", we can start by making the curve.
    Then, instead of making the half circle, we can simply extend the line. Beginning "jiim" has a line extending out instead of curving down, and the dot placed below the line. This is at the beginning of the word.

Daal Thaal Ra Za

Hello, and thank you for watching VisiHow. Today, we have a series of tutorials on reading and writing in the Arabic alphabet. If you are a non-native speaker, and you always wanted to learn how to do this, we're going through the alphabet letter by letter, in order. You can learn how the letters are pronounced, how they are written as stand-alone letters, and to the left of the black line, how they connect to other letters in a word. We should remember that Arabic is written from the right side to the left side. This is Part 3, and we are talking about the four letters "daal", "thaal", "ra" and "za". "Daal" and "thaal" have the same basic shape. It looks like the bottom right-hand corner of a square with a slightly rounded edge.

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

Read and write consonants in the Arabic alphabet Part-3-8.mp4-canvas62 657467.jpg

Steps

  1. 1
    "Daal" does not have any dots, but "thaal" does just above the basic form of the letter.
    "Thaal" is pronounced more closely to the "th" sound that we would hear in "the" or "than".

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  2. 2
    "Ra" and "za" have the same basic shape as well.
    For "ra", we will start at the line on the page, and then curve slightly down and to the left. It is the same with "za".
    Read and write consonants in the Arabic alphabet Part-3-8.mp4-canvas100 291577.jpg
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  3. 3
    "Ra" is slightly rolled when pronouncing it.
    We can see that it's similar to "daal" because it does not have a dot. However, "za" is similar to "thaal" because it does have a single dot just above the basic shape of the letter. This is how we can tell these two sets of letters apart.

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  4. 4
    All four of these letters connect to other letters in the same way.
    Letters on the right will connect to "daal", "thaal", "ra" and "za", but none of these letters will connect to another letter on the left side. So each letter has a beginning form, and an ending form.

Siin Shiin Saad Daad

Hello, and thank you for watching VisiHow. Today we have a series of tutorials on reading and writing in the Arabic alphabet. If you are a non-native speaker, and you have always wanted to learn how to do this, we're going through each letter one by one, in order. We're learning how they are pronounced, how they are written as stand-alone letters, and to the left of the black line, how they connect to other letters in a word. We can recall from previous parts of this tutorial that Arabic is written from the right side to the left side. This is Part 4, and we will be discussing the four letters "siin", "shiin", "saad" and "daad".

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

Read and write consonants in the Arabic alphabet Part-4-8.mp4-canvas309 977857.jpg

Steps

  1. 1
    "Siin" and "shiin" have the same basic letter shape.
    We will start up, and curve down once to make a small "You".

  4. 4
    "Siin" does not have any dots, but "shiin" has three.
    They are made in a triangle just about the first curve.

  5. 5
    "Saad" and "daad" have the same basic shape as well.
    For "saad", we'll start on the line of the paper, and come up to the right to make a small oval. Make sure to connect it together.

  8. 8
    All four of these letters connect to other letters on both sides.
    "Siin" and "shiin" connect in a similar way. "Saad" and "daad" also connect in a similar way. We have beginning "siin", where we will make the beginning part with the two little curves. However, we will not add the larger curve at the end.

Taa Thaa Ayn Ghayn

Hello, and thank you for watching VisiHow. Today we have a series of tutorials on reading and writing the Arabic alphabet. If you are a non-native speaker, and you have always wanted to learn how to do this, we are going through the alphabet letter by letter, in order. You can learn how the letters are pronounced, how they are written as stand-alone letters, and to the left of the black line, how they connect to other letters to make a word. This is Part 5, and we will be discussing four letters which are perhaps some of the most difficult to pronounce, especially for English speakers. These letters are "taa", "thaa", "ayn" and "ghayn". To write these letters, "taa" and "thaa" have the same basic shape. Similar to "saad" and "daad", which we saw in the previous section of this tutorial, we will start at the line, go up toward the right, and curve around.
