One-letter-words, that are based on a root, are very rare. They are only possible in the imperative (أَمْر) of some verbs.
These verbs have two weak letters (حَرْف الْعِلّة) in the root and only one “strong” consonant.
One-letter-words in Arabic – let’s look at some examples.
It can be difficult to understand these forms correctly. Let’s have a look at this example:
|…and protect us from the punishment of the Fire (Sura 2:201)||… وَقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ|
