# Write Arabic Numbers 1 to 10

Edited by Hotelier, priya, Rushell, Eng

Hello, and thank you for watching VisiHow. In today's tutorial, we will learn how to write the Arabic language form of the numbers 1 to 10. We can see them written on the board in English, as well as the name of the number in Arabic. The top from right to left is 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5, and on the bottom is 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10. In English, we say that we write Arabic numerals, but in the Arabic language, the numbers do look different. We'll go through them one by one in case you ever need to write down the Arabic form of the number without writing the word.

## Steps

1. 1
Number 1 is pronounced "wahid"
.
2. 2
It is written the same way as in English
.
Again, it is pronounced "wahid".
3. 3
Number 2 is pronounced "ithnân" or "ithnîn"
.
4. 4
We may see this written two different ways
.
For the first way, we will start and curve slightly down, and then come slightly in. It looks almost like a backwards number "7".
5. 5
We may also see this written as a kind of "c" letter
.
Again, it is pronounced "ithnân".
6. 6
Number 3 is "thalaatha"
.
7. 7
This is written similarly to "ithnân", the number 2, except that there are two curves at the top
.
Again, it is pronounced "thalaatha".
8. 8
Number 4 is "arba'a"
.
This will be written as a set of angles. Go in once, and then again. It's almost like a sideways "W". Again, it is pronounced "arba'a".
9. 9
Number 5 is "khamsa"
.
10. 10
This is written almost like the letter "o"
.
Again, it is pronounced "khamsa".
11. 11
"Sitta" is number 6
.
12. 12
This is written as a "7" with very straight lines
.
Again, it is pronounced "sitta".
13. 13
Number 7 is "sab'a"
.
14. 14
This is written as the English letter "v"
.
Again, it is pronounced "sab'a".
15. 15
Number 8 is "thamaaniya"
.
16. 16
This is written as an inverted "v" with the point at the top
.
Again, it is pronounced "thamaaniya".
17. 17
Number 9 is "tis'a"
.
18. 18
This looks very close to the number "9" as we write it in English, except with a slight curve at the end
.
Again, it is pronounced "tis'a".
19. 19
" 'Ashara" is number 10
.
20. 20
It is written as a "wahid" and a closed circle
.
Again, it is pronounced "'ashara".
21. 21
This does conclude today's tutorial on how to write the Arabic language form of the numbers 1 to 10
