LEARNING THE ARABIC LANGUAGE
Learning the Arabic alphabet is a good first step to learning to read and write in the Arabic language. Arabic is the language of the Holy Quran.
There are some basics you should know about the Arabic language. Arabic is read from right to left. There are a total of 29 letters in the Arabic alphabet, all of which are basically consonants. Vowels do exist, but are not considered part of the alphabet. Each letter takes the appearance of four different forms, depending on where they appear in a word. Fortunately, these forms all look similar to each other. For more information about what the letters are called, how to pronounce them, and how to write them in all four forms, visit http://www.shariahprogram.ca/Arabic-alphabet.shtml
