      yes there is “n” there. there is a little curve with dot on it. if you see a upper dot, it is exactliy letter “n”

    Why is the M (mim) in “I” above the baseline, and in “we” on the baseline.
    I also can’t understand the way |maen| is written… Where is the (short?) vowel.
    Or am I a bit to fast now?

      In Arabic, Hebrew, Persian (Farsi), and Urdu, short vowels aren’t written. They are only written in Qu’ran, Sunnah, and for beginners. Hoped this helps. :)

    L: n is there in Anha, It appears this way commonly in written Farsi. You will see a slight tilt up at the start and know it is there from the dot. It’s hard at first but you’ll get used to it if you keep at it :)

    Bert: both mim’s should begin on the baseline. It may vary slightly simply due to handwriting effects.

    What characters is (you, shoma) made out of? i see: ‘sin, oe and alef’ is that right?

    Hi Douglas, I think it’s shin, mim and alef.

    Where does the “o” sound come from in “Shoma”? I don’t see the character that would explain the sound

      This is a delayed reply, so, I’m sorry but those short vowel characters are not written in the Farsi (except when written by beginners like us :) . That is -at least- why I assume there is no explicit “o” character there.

    Can you please break down the letters of ishan. I cant understand how the 1st sound i.e i: comes. But very very useful website for persian learning.

    The o is not necessary to write because if ur advanced u would know that there is an o in shows but it comes on top of the sh

    I can write ma: (WE) but cannot write shoma: (YOU). Can’t connect ma: after small letter of “shin”
