I've grouped all these letters together, as they are very similar.
Think of a bowl. Now put an olive below that bowl and you will have "Ba"
Now, same bowl, but this time, you will have two olives inside the bowl, sort of hovering, defying gravity. This is representing "Ta"
Yes, we are still using the bowl but now, we are getting a little more hungry, so we add a third olive and place it just above the the other two olives. Voila, this is "Tha"
ok, what about "noon" you ask. No, it is not the mid-point of the day, but in fact another Arabic letter that is represented by a bowl and an olive. This time, only one olive, and it is just about to drop inside the bowl.
Here is a link where, isa, you can see what exactly each of these letters look like. searchtruth.com/arabic/lessons/unit1_writi
Were you able to recognize each letter? Any more descriptions to add, if not an olive and bowl, then how else could we describe them?
