Hello, and thank you for watching VisiHow. Today, we will learn the difference between the sun letters and the moon letters, and what happens when you are making a definite noun using a sun letter. The Arabic alphabet is categorized into two groups of letters called sun letters and moon letters. There are fourteen sun letters in standard Arabic - taa, thaa, daal, thaal, ra, za, siin, shiin, saad, daad, taa, thaa, laam and miim.
- 5In other words, it's not pronounced. Instead of being "al shams", this becomes "ashams". With any of the sun letters, this will be the rule for alif, laam preceding a sun letter. The letter laam is not pronounced as "al", but it gets integrated into the rest of the word. Again, instead of "al shams", this is "ashams".When "al" is placed before one of the sun letters, the laam in integrated into the following sun letter.
