Additional letters beyond the Classical Arabic script

Occasionally, you may see other letters that are not part of the original Arabic Alphabet but were added by other cultures, like the Persians and Maghrebis, to clarify letters that don’t traditionally exist in Arabic script like ‘p’ or ‘g’.

You need not learn these; they are included in case you see them and aren’t sure what they mean.
