Hidden Functions There are some hidden functions in our program which we don't use very often but some times it's useful to have them, when needed.
Please notice, that these functions can not user Regex!
What are Transliterations?

Transliterations are only needed if the user is searching for the exact form of an arabic letter.
E.g. ( أ ) Alif with Hamza above is one form of the groupe of Alif letter or ( إ ) is another form

If "Non-Transliteration" is checked, in this case our software will search for:

  • all forms of Alif including Hamza { أ إ ا, ء آ }
  • all forms of Waw { و ؤ }
  • all forms of Yaa { ي ى ئ }
  • all forms of Haa { ـة ـه }
What are Roots?

Arabic Roots Search and Dictionary, containing a list with all roots and their belonging verses and a Link to the online Lane’s Lexicon AR-EN Dictionary. These can also be downloaded for Free.

If you speak a European language, the root system of Arabic may be an unfamiliar concept. Arabic words are made from a few component letters, commonly called a “root”. A root usually consists of three letters (sometimes 2 or 4), which convey a basic idea. By adding various vowels (i.e. changing pronunciation) as affixes*, associated meanings can be derived.
For example, the Arabic letters: Siin–Lam–Miim (see above: س ل م and please remember that Arabic language goes from right to left, unlike languages with latin characters) are the root for the following words:
- salaam (peace),
- islam (submission/compliance/conformance/surrender),
- muslim (one who submits/complies/conforms/surrenders).
In all these words, you will see the root (component letters) are the same, and in the same order, i.e. Siin-Lam-Miim.

In a root based language, words mean what they mean because they are built from other words; these base words are called roots. Now, while most languages are concept languages, there are some words that can be likened to the root system, e.g: if you learn what the word “act” means, you should have no problem when you hear the word “actor” or “action” - you use the root to understand the word built from it.

Classical Arabic as one of the most primitive Semitic languages is primarily a root based language. Almost every word gets its meaning from the roots it is built from rather than by associating a concept with the word. This gives Arabic an almost crystal clear aspect to it; there is little ambiguity or confusion in a classical Arabic sentence. The language is one of clarity, directness, and certainty - qualities that are hard to achieve in other languages.
