What’s the Deal With the 2?

In English, there is no letter that corresponds to ء . Since ء looks like a reversed 2, we write it in English letters using the number 2.

3 = ع

Because this letter, when it’s not connected to another letter, looks like a reversed 3, we’ll write it as a 3 in English letters. For example, we write the word عَرَبِيّ as 3arabiyy.
