    There are many instances where a root letter may ligature with a non-root letter. One example for instance is a word that may be inside a sentence such as l-akhirah. When prefixed with l-, alif of akhirah ligatures with l-. Other examples are any word that is prefixed with the definitive article al- which starts with alif or meem as a root letter (not to be confused with words that start with meem whereas meem is not the root letter).
