Transliterations 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 }
Roots 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.
