    Hi, I'm using the Nafees Nastaliq font, and I'm trying to figure out
    how to make the 'loop' or 'chair' if you want a hamza after a non-
    joiner (e.g. aliph or wao), so that the character after is in its
    final form instead of the independent form. E.g. a word ending
    in 'aliph' 'hamza' 'ain' should have a squiggle before the ain and
    use the final (connected) form for ain instead of the independent
    form. Does anybody know how to do this or what the correct Unicode
    sequence for this should be?
