Writing the Alif waslah Arabic diacritic
Does anyone know how to write this on a smartphone keyboard? It's called the Alif Waslah; it negates the Alif pronunciation. This is what it looks like: ٱ https://pollylingu.al/ar/en/items/33326
Just type (Alif) and press (shift) with (Q or W or E and R) on the keyboard
If you're on Android and use Gboard, you can hold the regular Alif key and see the additional versions. Hope that helps.
i made a list at top of my notes and use it to cut and paste these like the alif dagger. then i just cut and paste them.
tj_q8 said they are rarely seen
