ء (ʾ) (همزة القطع hamzatu l-qaṭ‘)

  1. Hamza (ء) is a letter in the Arabic alphabet that represents the glottal stop /ʔ/, but it is not one of the 28 full letters and does not have a place in the alphabet. The glottal stop may be written with آ (ʾā) (/ʔā/, أ (ʾ)) (/ʔa/, /aʔ/), إ (ʾ) (/ʔi/), ؤ (ʾ) (/ʔu/, /uʔ/), ئ (/ʔi/, /iʔ/), or, usually after a long vowel, ء (ʾ). For example: كساء (/kisāʔ/).
