Number of Arabic letters

How many Arabic letters are there?

28

Not too many people know that the Arabic alphabet has 28 letters.  Keep in mind that the alphabet is written from right to left, in a cursive style.  It is interesting to know that letters usually stand for consonants.  Do not forget the fact that the names of the Arabic letters can be thought of as abstractions of an older version.  Keep in mind that they were meaningful words in the Proto-Semitic language.  It is interesting to know that many letters look similar but are distinguished from one another by dots.
