About the Arabic Alphabet

The basic Arabic alphabet contains 28 letters. It does not contain upper and lower-class letters. Many letters look alike but are differentiated by dots (ijm) above or below their middle section (rasm).

These dots are an intrinsical part of a letter since they discern between letters representing variant sounds.

Printed and written Arabic are cursive.

There are two primary ways for the Arabic alphabet to be sorted: abjad and hija.

The abjad order is used for lettering, derives from the order of the Phoenician alphabet; in this order, letters are also used as numbers.

The hij order is used where lists of names and words are sorted, as in phonebooks. This order groups letters by similarity of shape.
