In Uthmani quran script, there are quite a number of non-read alefs at the end of some verbs and words that are extra in the sense that they do not comply with today's standard Arabic, and hence, they are usually removed from Simple quran scripts. A list of such extra non-read alefs is provided in this page.

Rules for non-read alefs

According to Arabic grammar, if a verb ends with a subjective pronoun “waw”, a non-read alef is added after waw. This rule applies only to the following three cases:

  • Past-tense plural third-person verbs (masculine). Example: قالوا
  • Present-tense plural second-person verbs (masculine, majzoom). Example: لا تقولوا
  • Present-tense plural third-person verbs (masculine, majzoom). Example: لن یفعلوا

List of extra non-read alefs in Uthmani texts

Apart from the above three cases, some other non-read alefs have been placed at the end of some verbs and words ending with “waw” in Uthmani quran scripts. Since these non-read alefs are not standard in modern Arabic, they are usually removed from Simple quran scripts. A list of these extra non-read alefs is provided in the table below.
