Arabic letters

Its first time I submit a picture for review and it gets accepted immediately not sure what the reason is but I'm glad that Dreamstine moderators accepted it right away.

It's the first of a kind I submit Arabic letters calligraphy/ illustrations based as I like Arabic calligraphy a lot specially the special ink pen that is used for drawing the Arabic letters which is very artistic and marvelous.

Alphabetical order

There are two main collating sequences for the Arabic alphabet:

The original ’abjadī order (أَبْجَدِي), used for lettering, derives from the order of the Phoenician alphabet, and is therefore similar to the order of other Phoenician-derived alphabets, such as the Hebrew alphabet. In this order letters are also used as numbers.

The hijā’ī (هِجَائِي) or ’alifbā’ī (أَلِفْبَائِي) order shown in the table below, used where lists of names and words are sorted, as in phonebooks, classroom lists, and dictionaries, groups letters by similarity of shape.

The ’abjadī order is not a simple historical continuation of the earlier north Semitic alphabetic order, since it has a position corresponding to the Aramaic letter sameḵ/semkat ס, yet no letter of the Arabic alphabet historically derives from that letter. Loss of sameḵ was compensated for by the split of shin ש into two independent Arabic letters, ش (shīn) and ﺱ (sīn) which moved up to take the place of sameḵ.

The most common ’abjadī sequence is:



Note: In this sequence, and all those that follow, the letters are presented in Arabic writing order, i.e., right to left. The Latin script transliterations are also in this order, with each placed under its corresponding letter. Thus, the first letter of the sequence is "أ"(’) at the right, and the last letter in the sequence is "غ"(gh), at the left.

This is commonly vocalized as follows:

’abjad hawwaz ḥuṭṭī kalaman sa‘faṣ qarashat thakhadh ḍaẓagh.

Another vocalization is:

’abujadin hawazin ḥuṭiya kalman sa‘faṣ qurishat thakhudh ḍaẓugh

Another ’abjadī sequence (probably older, now mainly confined to the Maghreb), is:[2]



which can be vocalized as:

’abujadin hawazin ḥuṭiya kalman ṣa‘faḍ qurisat thakhudh ẓaghush

Modern dictionaries and other reference books do not use the ’abjadī order to sort alphabetically; instead, the newer hijā’ī order (with letters partially grouped together by similarity of shape) is used:



Another kind of hijā’ī order used to be widely used in the Maghreb until recently when it was replaced by the Mashriqi order:[2]
