However because of the small i (kasra) mark the first Y is actually a long EE . The second is a normal Y. So this reads as NBeeY with the final Y pronouced as Y. In the third spelt Alrrasool but pronounce Ar-rasool the L is silent so the word actually is read as Ar-rasool . Al means THE in Arabic , for example AL-DeeN means 'The Religion'.

The next figure has words which are common to Urdu and Arabic . Although written in Arabic only the Urdu translation is given which in most cases is the same as Arabic.

Some of these missing ones are put in brackets.
