Isolated Consonants

المعزولة الحروف الساكنة

Introduction

مُقَدِّمَة

Arabic is written in a connected, cursive style, giving each letter a different form given its position in the word.

The isolated form is the most foundational. The other three forms are the initial, medial and final, which are left open to connect with other letters.
