Arabic

Letter

ا / ‍ا (’álif)

  1. Although usually considered to be the first letter of the Arabic alphabet, the small hamza (ء) that sits on top of أ is really the first letter of the Arabic alphabet, and the tall column is its bearer. This entry only deals with the lower part, the bearer, which is called الف (’álif) and, without the hamza, is used to lengthen a preceding vowel, often a. It is followed by ب.

Pronunciation

Combined with fathah: ﹶاā.

Combined with kasra: اِi.

Combined with damma: اu.
