ARABIC ALPHABET- NAMES

  • In this lesson we will learn the Arabic Alphabet In-Shā-Allh (God Willing). The lesson is designed to teach the names of all the alphabets.
  • Please note that some of these letters are very similar to English letter sounds e.g.: /Bā/ is very close to the letter 'B' in the English language, this is a useful way to remember the sounds of the letters. However many letters have no equivalent sounds in English e.g.: /ξayn/, and some letters have subtle but important differences in pronunciation, e.g.: /Hā/ which is pronounced with a lot more emphasis in the throat than the letter 'H' in English.
  • In Arabic, it is preferred to use the 'tanween' ('un') to clarify the pronunciation - especially on the final letter of a word.  We have used the tanween in the sounds below.  For example - instead of /Bā/ we have said '-un'.  The letter name is still /Bā/ but we have used the 'un' to clarify the pronunciation.
  • Finally, please note that the Arabic script is read from right to left. Please read the letters below starting from the right and reading each letter to the left.
