The subject of letters in Arabic has been studied in various fields from the very first periods as well as in the general Arabic grammar sources. It is seen that this field has developed very rapidly and very rich sources have been produced in the first five centuries. While the first studies are mostly related to the whole letters, later studies are related only one letter. Thus, the studies in relation to the letters can be examined into three groups: While the first group studies are related to the whole letters in general, the second group studies are concerned only the letters of Quran, and the third ones are about only one letter or particles. In addition, although it is not very common, some studies are related only one letter or preposition existing in Quran.
