abjad numerals

  • Abjad numerals are Arabic letters used as numbers. When Arabic letters are used as numbers, they follow a traditional order based on the Hebrew alphabet. Sometimes the numbers are marked by an overline.
  • The traditional abjad sequence is:
أ ب ج د ﻫ و ز ح ط ي ك ل م ن س ع ف ص ق ر ش ت ث خ ذ ض ظ غ
  • The abjad is grouped into these nonsense words to facilitate memory:
أبجد هوز حطي كلمن سعفص قرشت ثخذ ضظغ
’ábjad háwwaz ħáṭṭī kálaman sáʕfaṣ qárašat θáχað ḍáẓaġ.
  • Units 1–9:
أ ب ج د ﻫ و ز ح ط
  • Tens 10–90:
ي ك ل م ن س ع ف ص
  • Hundreds 100–900:
ق ر ش ت ث خ ذ ض ظ
