  • Arabic letter shapes

    An Arabic letter may have 4 different shapes depending on its position in the word. The shapes are as follows:
    1- Alone: The letter is not connected to any other letter.
    2- Initial: The letter is connected to the next letter on the left only.
    3- Middle : The letter is connected to the next and previous letter.
    4- End: The letter is connected to the previous letter on the right only.

    The 6 green letters  ا د ذ ر ز و have 2 shapes only because they cannot connect to the next letter on the left.
