Get to know the letter thaa in Arabic

Before we start with the shapes of the letter thaa, we need to demonstrate an important note that states that the letter thaa can connect itself from both sides. Also, remember that there are some Arabic letters that can only be connected from the right side as shown below in the table in the first group and the rest from both sides as in the 2nd group.


1st group: 

Connected from the right side


2nd group: 

Connected from both sides




Since the letter thaa falls in the second group, it can be connected from both sides. Now, let us get to know the letter thaa and give some Arabic letter thaa words after the video.


As shown in the video, this is the shape of the letter thaa standing alone. The form of the letter thaa changes depending on where it appears in a word. Whether it comes at the beginning of the word (initial), middle of the word (medial), or ending of the word (final). But firstly, notice that thaa is a long, horizontal curve with three dots above it when it is standing alone and written like this “ث.” Now, let us know the different shapes of the letter thaa and give some Arabic words with thaa.
