    Ah, that is tough. I think the problem is that the initial consonant does not exist in English.

    And it is not consistant through the arab world either.

    How do yo spell/pronounce the jewish winter solstice holiday? That has a lot of variations too.

    I read somewhere that humans produce about 64 distinct phonemes, ouf which only 40 or so are used in any one place, and that several of them preclude the use of others by the same language. For example, the sound produced by orientals that is written as R (or L sometimes) is actually neither. But use of this sound prevents them from being able to use the wester version of either.

    As the the Al part, the is just the semitic definite article. Their way of saying "The." My understanding is that they lack an indefinite article (a)

    If I remember, Hebrew requires a definite article on every part of the sentence where it is used. (The quick the brown the fox jumped over the lazy the red the dog)

    ^ I hereby demand that everybody types it like this. Otherwise, some extremists might get pissed off and use your infidel misspellings to fuel their recruiting campaigns.

    لقرآن is not helpful for pronunciation. As far as I can see, it is streptococcus, bacterium.
