Exploring the Joined Form of Arabic Letters

Free Course | Lesson 7

In Lesson 7, we’ll delve into the joined form of Arabic letters, building on our understanding from the previous lesson where we explored the isolated forms. Arabic letters can appear differently based on:

 

  1. Their position in a word (beginning, middle, or end).
  2. Specific writing rules unique to each letter.
  3. Notably, 6 Arabic letters don’t connect to the succeeding ones.

 

Below, a table illustrates the various forms of each Arabic letter based on its position in a word. Mastering these forms requires practice, but recognizing patterns can simplify the process. For instance, the starting and middle forms of a letter can often look similar, just as the final and isolated forms might. This consistency makes learning the shapes of Arabic letters and forming words more intuitive. Although initially, it may seem overwhelming, with dedication and practice, the journey becomes smoother.

Alhamdulillah I‘m very pleased with the arabic and Qur’an lessons I receive from teacher Umm Tasneem and I‘m also content with the al-dirassa administration team who were very quick in answering any questions I had. In a month I progressed a lot and I cannot wait to continue my studies with al-dirassa. May Allah reward everyone at al-dirassa.

My Qur’an teacher is fantastic, she teaches me in a loving and kind way where I look forward to the lessons and learn so much. My Arabic teacher is equally as nice and has a lot of patience with me, she has great expertise in the field and I’ve progressed really quickly with her. Thank you Al-dirassa!
